Title:Choosing the variables to estimate singular DSGE models Author(s):CANOVA, Fabio; FERRONI, Filippo; MATTHES, ChristianDate:2014Citation:
- Journal of Applied Econometrics, 2014, Vol. 29, No. 7, pp. 1099-1117
Type:ArticleAbstract:We propose two methods to choose the variables to be used in the estimation of the structural parameters of a singular DSGE model. The first selects the vector of observables that optimizes parameter identification; the ...
Title:Bridging DSGE models and the raw data Author(s):CANOVA, FabioDate:2014Citation:
- Journal of Monetary Economics, 2014, Vol. 67, pp. 1-15
Type:ArticleAbstract:A method to estimate DSGE models using the raw data is proposed. The approach links the observables to the model counterparts via a flexible specification which does not require the model-based component to be located ...
