    The object of this study is to develop a model in order to estimate the potential GDP and output gap and to assess the sustainability of projected growth using a multivariate filter approach. The literature unveils different approaches to measuring the variable. Historically, potential output was an important variable to design five-year plans in different countries. With the advent of studies on business cycles, deriving potential output became essential to find out the measurement of the output.

      In this paper, we survey some techniques proposed in the literature to measure potential output. Given the reported shortcomings of univariate approaches and mechanical filters, we focus on three simple multivariate methodologies: the multivariate Beveridge-Nelson methodology (MBN), Cochrane's methodology (CO), and the structural VAR methodology with long-run restrictions (LRRO). output gap is often referred as the, Hodrick-Prescott Multivariate, HPMV, filter. In this paper, we will pursue this HPMV filter approach. HPMV approach in state space has been used in estimating unobserved variables, such as non-accelerating inflation rate of unemployment, NAIRU (OECD ) output gap or the neutral real interest rate.

In this section we describe how potential output and the NAIRU have been estimated using a MV filter which takes into account the paths of output, unemployment and inflation Table 1 presents the equations of the MV filter. 10 In equation (1), y t is the log of observed output, y ¯ t the potential output, and ygap t is the output gap.

This paper develops a simple model for measuring potential output that uses data on inflation, unemployment, and capacity utilization. We apply the model to 10 countries, in addition to the United States and the euro area. While there is a substantial amount of uncertainty around our estimates, we find that the financial crisis has resulted in a reduction in potential output.

This technique satisfies a few simple criteria, most of which are critical to any discussion of potential output and economic slack.

I acknowledge helpful comments and suggestions from Dr. Valentina Aprigliano (BdI), Dr. Aaron G.

This extension captures the idea that long and deep recessions (expansions) cause persistent damage (improvement) to the labor market, thereby reducing (increasing) potential output.
