Time-Varying Parameter VAR Model with Stochastic Volatility: An Overview of Methodology and Empirical Applications
This paper aims to provide a comprehensive overview of the estimation methodology for the time-varying parameter structural vector autoregression (TVP-VAR) with stochastic volatility, in both methodology and empirical applications. The TVP-VAR model, combined with stochastic volatility, enables us to capture possible changes in underlying structure of the economy in a flexible and robust manner. In this respect, as shown in simulation exercises in the paper, the incorporation of stochastic volatility into the TVP estimation significantly improves estimation performance. The Markov chain Monte Carlo method is employed for the estimation of the TVP-VAR models with stochastic volatility. As an example of empirical application, the TVP-VAR model with stochastic volatility is estimated using the Japanese data with significant structural changes in the dynamic relationship between the macroeconomic variables.
