Hello Statalisters,

I have a couple of quite basic questions about IRFs in Stata and how
they are implemented.
Firstly, I have been having a hard time figuring out what the default
size and duration of an impulse is. For instance, when the command irf
graph oirf, impulse(var1) response(var2) is executed, is the impulse a
1 unit permanent shock to var1? Also, is there a way to change the
size and duration of the shock if I wanted? That is, could I change
the impulse to a 1 standard deviation that lasts 1 period only?
Secondly, for some reason, the results I get from irf graph oirf,
impulse(var1) response(var2) do not match those I get from irf table
oirf, impulse(var1) response(var2). I plotted the output from the
latter command (table) but it certainly does look like the former

I would very much appreciate any help or suggestions. Thank you in advance.
