Hi,

I am replicating the Smets-Wouters AER US model, and I am running into the following error. Note that “Steps” in the below is an empty “list” ] (I don’t know what this is called in Matlab).

MH: Posterior (dsge) IRFs... MH: Posterior IRFs, done!??? Subscripted assignment dimension mismatch.

Error in ==> conditional_variance_decomposition_mc_analysis at 72

p_mean(1, = Steps;

Error in ==> posterior_analysis>job at 78

oo_ = conditional_variance_decomposition_mc_analysis(SampleSize,‘posterior’,M_.dname,M_.fname,…

Error in ==> posterior_analysis at 34

oo_ = job(type,SampleSize,arg1,arg2,arg3,options_,M_,oo_);

Error in ==> compute_moments_varendo at 110

oo_ = posterior_analysis(‘conditional

decomposition’,var_list_(i,:),M_.exo_names(j,:),Steps,options_,M_,oo_);

Error in ==> dynare_estimation_1 at 1077

oo_ = compute_moments_varendo(‘posterior’,options_,M_,oo_,var_list_);

Error in ==> dynare_estimation at 62

dynare_estimation_1(var_list,varargin{:});

Error in ==> usmodel at 491

dynare_estimation(var_list_);

evalin(‘base’,fname) ;

I think the relevant call is the following. I can post the code and data if it would help.

estimation(optim=(‘MaxIter’,200),datafile=usmodel_data,mode_compute=0,

mode_file=usmodel_mode,first_obs=71,presample=4,lik_init=2,prefilter=0,

mh_replic=50000,mh_nblocks=5,mh_jscale=0.40,mh_drop=0.2,bayesian_irf,

irf=20,moments_varendo,filtered_vars,smoother) dy pinfobs robs labobs;

Thanks.
