UHLIGFUNCS: RATS procedure to compute criteria for Uhlig sign-restricted shocks
AbstractThis is a pair of functions for simplifying the specification of sign-constrained impulse response functions. One is to implement the rejection method; the other calculates the penalty function, as described in Uhlig(2005), "What are the effects of monetary policy on output? Results from an agnostic identification procedure", Journal of Monetary Economics, 52, pp 381-419. You should look at the replication files for that paper to see how these are used.
