Abstract: The SVAR addon is a collection of gretl functions to estimate Structural Vector Autoregressions (SVARs) and to conduct inference on the resulting magnitudes such as the impulse response functions and short-run or long-run impact matrices. For the purpose of identifying the structural shocks short-run as well as long-run restrictions are supported, including those related to the cointegration properties in the case of non-stationary systems. For the stationary case a dialog-driven graphical interface is also offered. Inference can be based on the bootstrap, optionally using a bias correction as suggested in the literature. This documentation explains the addon's usage, capabilites and limitations, and provides some necessary econometric methodological background (version 1.32).
