VARtools

VAR Tools

All the programs below except impulsdt are implemented in both R and matlab. The R versions are the ones I use currently in research and thus either are now or are on their way to being more thoroughly tested and up to date. I'll still correct any reported errors in the m files.
rfvar3
Estimates a reduced form VAR, allowing automatic implementation of "Minnesota prior" style dummy observations favoring persistence. Also allows breaks in the data, which makes it possible to use more general dummy observations
matrictint
Scale factor for a matrix t distribution, like the posterior from a VAR
mgnldnsty
Computes a VAR estimate and the integrated posterior, with a proper prior specified using dummy observations
impulsdtrf
Impulse responses from a VAR, using the output of rfvar3 or mgnldnsty
varprior
Generates the dummy observations that implement the parts of the Minnesota prior not included in rfvar3.
impulsdt
Impulse responses from a SVAR A(L) operator. Generally using impulsdtrf with non-identity A0 is more convenient
