Dr. Schorfheide's comment on this article
Dr. Schorfheide has reviewed this Wikipedia page, and provided us with the following comments to improve its quality:
This needs some work. Here are some pointers:
1) Distinguish different types of models: microeconometric versus macroeconometric models; models for cross-sectional versus time series versus panel data; single equation versus multiple equation models; structural (causal) models versus reduced-form models.
2) The consumption equation is dated. The article should have more examples:
micro/single equation a) demand for a product b) wage equation (human capital model with education and age on rhs
micro/multiple equations a) demand and supply system Such examples can be used to explain: endogenous versus exogenous variables; reduced versus structural form; the need for instrumental variables to cope with endogeneity bias.
macro/single equation: a) A Taylor-style interest rate rule describing the behavior or a central bank
macro/multiple equation: a) A vector autoregression
In the context of these examples, it should be possible to explain some key concepts to non-specialists.
In terms of macroeconometric modeling and policy analysis, the sentence "One famous econometric model of this nature is the Federal Reserve Bank econometric model" sounds a bit odd. I presume you mean FRB-US. Here are some links:

We hope Wikipedians on this talk page can take advantage of these comments and improve the quality of the article accordingly.
We believe Dr. Schorfheide has expertise on the topic of this article, since he has published relevant scholarly research:
