This lecture provides a short introduction to contemporary macroeconometrics. We start by discussing descriptive statistics in multiple time series, including time plots, histograms, scatter plots, autocorrelation plots, and cross-correlograms. We then discuss the VAR model as a useful way of describing multiple time series data, and the relation between VAR and VMA models. Finally, we discuss the extent to which structural shock processes can be recovered from forecast errors in VAR models, and the extent to which exogenous variables can be included in VAR models.
