State-space models provide a powerful environment for modeling dynamic systems. Their flexibility has resulted in a wide variety of applications across fields including radar tracking, 3-D modeling, monetary policy modeling, weather forecasting, and more.
In this blog, we look more closely at state-space modeling using a simple time series model of inflation.
The components of state-space models.
Representing state-space models in GAUSS.
Estimating model parameters using state-space models.

Our video demonstration shows just how quick and easy it can be to load time series, categorical and numeric variables from Excel files into GAUSS. You’ll learn how to:
Interactively load Excel data files.
Perform advanced loading steps, Such as loading specific sheets, or specifying values as missing values.
Our new Introduction to GAUSS for Stata Users offers a guide for Stata Users who are looking to get started quickly in GAUSS. It offers side-by-side comparisons of essential analysis tasks in GAUSS and Stata.
The latest GAUSS 22.1.0 update is available now and is free if you own GAUSS 22. This maintenance release is one of our most extensive with over 40 enhancements, new functions, and new examples, and bug fixes.
When they’re done right, graphs are a useful tool for telling compelling data stories and supporting data models. However, too often graphs lack the right components to truly enhance understanding.
In this blog, we look at how a few quick customizations help make graphs more impactful. In particular, we will consider:
Using grid lines without cluttering a graph.
Changing tick labels for readability.
Using clear axis labels.
Marking events and outcomes with lines, bars, and annotations.
There is no getting around the fact that data wrangling, cleaning, and exploring plays an important role in any empirical research. Data management can be time-consuming, error-prone, and can make or break results.
GAUSS 22 is built to take the pain out of dealing with your data and to let you move seamlessly towards tackling your important research questions.
In today’s blog, we walk through how to efficiently prepare and explore real-world data before modeling or estimation. We’ll look at:
Loading and merging data.
Cleaning data to eliminate misentries, missing values, and more.
