A Trend-Cycle(-Season) Filter
This paper proposes a new univariate method to decompose a time series into a trend, a cyclical and a seasonal component: the Trend-Cycle filter (TC filter) and its extension, the Trend-Cycle-Season filter (TCS filter). They can be regarded as extensions of the Hodrick-Prescott filter (HP filter). In particular, the stochastic model of the HP filter is extended by explicit models for the cyclical and the seasonal component. The introduction of a stochastic cycle improves the filter in three respects: first, trend and cyclical components are more consistent with the underlying theoretical model of the filter. Second, the end-of- sample reliability of the trend estimates and the cyclical component is improved compared to the HP filter since the pro-cyclical bias in end- of-sample trend estimates is virtually removed. Finally, structural breaks in the original time series can be easily accounted for.
