Models for analyzing and assessing inflation developments
For a more general and broader assessment of inflation and its drivers in the Netherlands and the euro area, we use VAR-models and Phillips curve models (with and without regime-switching; with alternative measures of slack) and unobserved components models. The unobserved components model identifies the trend, seasonal and irregular components and is used to provide estimates of underlying trends and cycles in the data.
