''Measuring inflation persistence under time-varying inflation target and stochastic volatility with jumps''
( 2022, Vol. 42 No.2 )
 
 
We analyze whether the presence of a time-varying inflation target and stochastic volatility affect inflation persistence. We estimated different autoregressive specifications for inflation with and without time-varying parameters. The results show that the inflation persistence diminishes when we consider time-varying inflation target and stochastic volatility with jumps. We conclude that neglecting the time variation in inflation target and inflation volatility results in an upward biased estimation of persistence.
