  • DATE:
    August 1-5, 2016, Asuncion, Paraguay.
  • Deadline registration date:
    July 15, 2016
    CEMLA, Banco Central del Paraguay and IMF.
    Structural vector autoregressions. Forecasting with Bayesian VAR. Working with I (1) variables. Combination forecasts. Using the Kalman filter.
  • Objective:
    Enhance participants’ applied macroeconomic modeling skills. Lectures employ the case study approach to motivate discussion of econometric techniques considered in the course. Each session is built around one or two classic applied papers, reviewing the key economic issues posed, the econometric methods used, and the technical issues involved to replicating the published findings, including the appropriate Eviews code. Hands-on learning and programming in Eviews by participants is an integral part of the course.
    Mid- to senior-level officials from CEMLA’s central banks involved in conducting research used in the design and implementation of macroeconomic policy. Participants should have an advanced degree in economics or equivalent experience, and be familiarized in using modern econometric methods to prepare policy briefs or research papers. They should also be comfortable using Eviews and its built-in programming language.
