The income cycles that have been experienced by six OECD countries over the past 24 years areanalysed. The amplitude of the cycles relative to the level of aggregate income varies amongst thecountries, as does the degree of the damping that aﬀects the cycles. The study aims to reveal both ofthese characteristics. It also seeks to determine whether there exists a clear relationship between thedegree of damping and the length of the cycles. In order to estimate the parameters of the cycles, thedata have been subjected to the processes of detrending, anti-alias ﬁltering and subsampling.
