Abstract

We clarify a point regarding the appropriate measure(s) of the variance of smoothed disturbances in the context of linear state-space models. This involves explaining how two different concepts, which are sometimes given the same name in the literature, relate to each other. We also describe the behavior of several common software packages is in this regard.
