st: State Space Question |

Hi, I am trying to implement a state space model using sspace in Stata. The model has the following structure: P_t = M_t + S_t M_t = M_t-1 + U_t U_t = Vol_hat_t + W_t S_t = Phi*S_t-1 + Vol_t + E_t Where Vol_hat_t is a variable with autocorrelation removed and Vol_t is the raw variable. I have tried the following: constraint 1 [m]L.m = 1 constraint 2 [mid]m = 1 constraint 3 [mid]u = 1 sspace (m L.m vol_hat, noconst state) (u L.u vol, noconst state) (mid m u, noconst noerror), constraints(1 2 3) covstate(diagonal) iter(100) method(kdiff) And get the following error: "may not include observed dependent variables in state equations" Perhaps someone here has an idea of what I have misspecified above. Thanks, Ryan.
