Handbook of Research Methods and Applications in Empirical Macroeconomics

Edited by Nigar Hashimzade and Michael A. Thornton

This comprehensive Handbook presents the current state of art in the theory and methodology of macroeconomic data analysis. It is intended as a reference for graduate students and researchers interested in exploring new methodologies, but can also be employed as a graduate text. The Handbook concentrates on the most important issues, models and techniques for research in macroeconomics, and highlights the core methodologies and their empirical application in an accessible manner. Each chapter is largely self-contained, whilst the comprehensive introduction provides an overview of the key statistical concepts and methods. All of the chapters include the essential references for each topic and provide a sound guide for further reading.

Chapter 25: Simulation and estimation of macroeconomic models in Dynare

João Madeira


This chapter provides a brief guide to using Dynare. Dynare is free software (available at http://www.dynare.org/) able to simulate and estimate Dynamic Stochastic General Equilibrium (DSGE) models. Dynare is available for Windows, Mac and Linux. Matlab version 7.0 (R14) or above is required to run Dynare. As a free alternative to Matlab it is also possible to run Dynare on GNU Octave version 3.0.0 or above. No additional toolboxes are necessary but having Matlab’s ‘optimization toolbox’ installed allows for additional options when using some commands. Dynare’s current development team consists of Stéphane Adjemian, Houtan Bastani, Michel Juillard, Frédéric Karamé, Junior Maih, Ferhat Mihoubi, George Perendia, Marco Ratto and Sebastien Villemot.
