The OUTMODEL= data set contains the estimates of the and matrices and their standard errors, the names of the components of the state vector, and the estimates of the innovation covariance matrix. The variables contained in the OUTMODEL= data set are as follows:
the BY variables
STATEVEC, a character variable that contains the name of the component of the state vector corresponding to the observation. The STATEVEC variable has the value STD for standard deviations observations, which contain the standard errors for the estimates given in the preceding observation.
F_j, numeric variables that contain the columns of the matrix. The variable F_j contains the jth column of . The number of F_j variables is equal to the value of the DIMMAX= option. If the model is of smaller dimension, the extraneous variables are set to missing.
G_j, numeric variables that contain the columns of the matrix. The variable G_j contains the jth column of . The number of G_j variables is equal to r, the dimension of given by the number of variables in the VAR statement.
SIG_j, numeric variables that contain the columns of the innovation covariance matrix. The variable SIG_j contains the jth column of . There are r variables SIG_j.
Table 28.3 shows an example of the OUTMODEL= data set, with , , and DIMMAX=4. In Table 28.3, and are the i,jth elements of and respectively. Note that all elements for F_4 are missing because is a matrix.
