Dynamic Factors in the Presence of Block Structure
Marc Hallin () and

No ECO2008/22, Economics Working Papers from European University Institute
Macroeconometric data often come under the form of large panels of time series, themselves decomposing into smaller but still quite large subpanels or blocks. We show how the dynamic factor analysis method proposed in Forni et al (2000), combined with the identification method of Hallin and Liska (2007), allows for identifying and estimating joint and block-specific common factors. This leads to a more sophisticated analysis of the structures of dynamic interrelations within and between the blocks in such datasets, along with an informative decomposition of explained variances. The method is illustrated with an analysis of the Industrial Production Index data for France, Germany, and Italy.
