Kalman filter


I have received an error message as shown below when I run estimation. Could anybody tell me what the problem is and how to solve it? Thanks in advance!

??? Attempted to access H(2); index out of bounds because numel(H)=1.

Fi = z(i,:)*PZ + H(d_index(i));

Are you using the most recent Dynare version? If yes, please post the mod- and the datafile.

Hi, I am having the same problem. Unfortunately, I am not authorized to send the mod file neither the data file. The mod file works with loops and I am trying to estimate two different models separatelly. Basically, the loop changes the number of agents in the economy, for example, let be ‘i’ the number of a certain type of agent, and each agent has different consumption that we denote c_i. Thus, if i = 10, we have a time series of c_1, c_2, …, c_10 in the model, if i = 30, we have c_1, c_2, … c_30. When I set i = 10, the mode file works well, however, when I set i = 30, the error message comes. Only for reason of testing, I increase the ‘i’ and the problem show up for all i > 23. The ‘c_i’ are observable variable among others.

I really appreciate any help, given that limited information, without the code.


Have you tried the most recent snapshot or 4.3.2?
