Stochastic simulation: a package for Monte Carlo experiments on econometric models

MPRA Paper from University Library of Munich, Germany

Abstract: The stochastic simulation of an econometric model is an application of Monte Carlo methods. Deterministic simulation is performed setting error terms to zero. Stochastic simulation, on the contrary, takes into account the disturbance terms, solving the model after adding a vector of pseudo-random numbers drawn from a prespecified multivariate distribution.
