The main purpose of this paper is the development of iterative plug-in algorithms for local polynomial estimation of the trend and its derivatives in macroeconomic time series. In particular, a data-driven lag-window estimator for the variance factor is proposed so that the bandwidth is selected without any parametric assumption on the stationary errors. Further analysis of the residuals using an ARMA model is discussed briefl y. Moreover, confidence bounds for the trend and its derivatives are conducted using some asymptotically unbiased estimates and applied to test possible linearity of the trend. These graphical tools also provide us further detailed features about the economic development. Practical performance of the proposals is illustrated by quarterly US and UK GDP data.
