A simple adaptive measure of core inflation
This paper proposes a new measure of core inflation and compares it with several existing measures. The new measure is adaptive and is designed to track sudden and persistent movements inflation, such as those arising from changes in monetary policy regimes. the adaptive measure is a superior predictor of (locally) mean reverting components of inflation, and appears to filter out transients more effectively than existing measures.
