```Dear all:

Just to let you know that I found out how to estimate the long run elasticities, which are simply the beta parameters of the co-integrating equation and then all I have to do is to use simple algebra to obtain all elasticities in the model.

Best regards,

Jorge

Asunto: How do I obtain the long run elasticities in a Vector Error Correction Model using the VEC command

Dear All:

I did a Johansen cointegration analysis and I found out that the variables in my model are co-integrated. I used the vec command to obtain the short r un elasticities as well as the adjustment coefficients but I do not know how to obtain the long run elasticities with this command.

As far as I understand, the long run coefficients (which I would suppose are the long run elasticities if we have the logs of the variables?, am I correct in this?) are given by the beta parameters of the cointegrating equation but if I have only one cointegrating equation then I would have only the  long run elasticities for only one variable (the normalized variable) and  not for the other variables in the system?. How do I obtain the long run  elasticities for all variables in the system?

Thank you very much for your help.

Best,

Jorge Garza
