PICCHETTI, Paulo  and  TOLEDO, Celso. Estimating and interpreting a common stochastic component for the Brazilian industrial production index. Rev. Bras. Econ. [online]. 2002, vol.56, n.1, pp.107-120. ISSN 0034-7140.

This paper employs a state-space formulation to model a common stochastic component in four different series that constitute the aggregate index of industrial production in Brazil. This estimated common component is then interpreted as a measurement of behavior of fundamentals in the brazilian economy and compared to the actual aggregate index.

Keywords : time series econometrics; brazilian industrial production index; business fluctuations.
