Robert, Thank you very much for your prompt reply. I am convinced the Kalman filter approach is the correct one for my application. My problem is that I am having difficulty specifying a "State-Space Model with Stochastically Varying Coefficients" as described in Section 13.8 of Hamilton (1994). Specifically, I am trying to estimate a linear model with time varying coefficients Page 400 of Hamilton (1994), but I am unable to correctly structure the sspace command to perform the estimation. Additionally, the sspace section of the manual states that "sspace estimates linear state-space models with time-invariant coefficient matrices." Am I attempting to do something that this procedure does not allow? Best, Joshua A. Shindell 2010/4/21 Robert A Yaffee <bob.yaffee@nyu.edu>: > Joshua, > In the literature, the State space model was originally predicated on the Kalman filter, with a first-order Markov (ar(1)) transition equation, to project the mean, while using another part of it filtered the variance. Notwithstanding the capability of handling a nonstationary local random walk with noise, the Kalman filter was originally formulated with its > transition equation in that form. Later versions of it (the extended Kalman > Filter, for example) have sought to extend it to nonlinear functions. MCMC versions suggested by Genshiro Kitigawa JASA Sept 1998 and as early as 1996) have endeavored to handle nonGaussian frontiers. Andrew Harvey (1989) Forecasting Structural time series models and the Kalman filter is a good source for this information(Cambridge Univ Press), and later on in his book, he discusses ways of how this can be applied to other kinds of models, whether they are ARIMA(0,1,1) or poisson, binomial, or multinomial models. > The Kalman filter is very flexible and accurate. > Cheers, > Robert > > Robert A.
