# update

Real-time state update by state-space model Kalman filtering

## Syntax

## Description

`update`

efficiently updates the state distribution in
real time by applying one recursion of the Kalman filter to compute
state-distribution moments for the final period of the specified response data.

To compute state-distribution moments by recursive application of the Kalman filter for
each period in the specified response data, use `filter`

instead.

`[`

returns the updated state-distribution moments at the final time `nextState`

,`NextStateCov`

] = update(`Mdl`

,`Y`

)*T*,
conditioned on the current state distribution, by applying one recursion of the Kalman
filter to the fully specified, standard state-space
model
`Mdl`

given *T* observed responses
`Y`

. `nextState`

and
`NextStateCov`

are the mean and covariance, respectively, of the
updated state distribution.

`[`

initializes the Kalman filter at the current state distribution with mean
`nextState`

,`NextStateCov`

] = update(`Mdl`

,`Y`

,`currentState`

,`CurrentStateCov`

)`currentState`

and covariance matrix
`CurrentStateCov`

.

`[`

uses additional options specified by one or more name-value arguments, and uses any of the
input-argument combinations in the previous syntaxes. For example,
`nextState`

,`NextStateCov`

] = update(___,`Name,Value`

)`update(Mdl,Y,Params=params,SquareRoot=true)`

sets unknown parameters in
the partially specified model `Mdl`

to the values in
`params`

, and specifies use of the square-root Kalman filter variant for
numerical stability.

`[`

also returns the loglikelihoods computed for each observation in
`nextState`

,`NextStateCov`

,`logL`

] = update(___)`Y`

.

## Examples

### Compute Only Final State Distribution from Kalman Filter

Suppose that a latent process is an AR(1). The state equation is

$${x}_{t}=0.5{x}_{t-1}+{u}_{t},$$

where $${u}_{t}$$ is Gaussian with mean 0 and standard deviation 1.

Generate a random series of 100 observations from $${x}_{t}$$, assuming that the series starts at 1.5.

```
T = 100;
ARMdl = arima(AR=0.5,Constant=0,Variance=1);
x0 = 1.5;
rng(1); % For reproducibility
x = simulate(ARMdl,T,Y0=x0);
```

Suppose further that the latent process is subject to additive measurement error. The observation equation is

$${y}_{t}={x}_{t}+{\epsilon}_{t},$$

where $${\epsilon}_{t}$$ is Gaussian with mean 0 and standard deviation 0.75. Together, the latent process and observation equations compose a state-space model.

Use the random latent state process (`x`

) and the observation equation to generate observations.

y = x + 0.75*randn(T,1);

Specify the four coefficient matrices.

A = 0.5; B = 1; C = 1; D = 0.75;

Specify the state-space model using the coefficient matrices.

Mdl = ssm(A,B,C,D)

Mdl = State-space model type: ssm State vector length: 1 Observation vector length: 1 State disturbance vector length: 1 Observation innovation vector length: 1 Sample size supported by model: Unlimited State variables: x1, x2,... State disturbances: u1, u2,... Observation series: y1, y2,... Observation innovations: e1, e2,... State equation: x1(t) = (0.50)x1(t-1) + u1(t) Observation equation: y1(t) = x1(t) + (0.75)e1(t) Initial state distribution: Initial state means x1 0 Initial state covariance matrix x1 x1 1.33 State types x1 Stationary

`Mdl`

is an `ssm`

model. Verify that the model is correctly specified using the display in the Command Window. The software infers that the state process is stationary. Subsequently, the software sets the initial state mean and covariance to the mean and variance of the stationary distribution of an AR(1) model.

Filter the observations through the state-space model, in real time, to obtain the state distribution for period 100.

[rtfX100,rtfXVar100] = update(Mdl,y)

rtfX100 = 1.2073

rtfXVar100 = 0.3714

`update`

applies the Kalman filter to all observations in `y`

, and returns the state estimate of only period 100.

Compare the result to the results of `filter`

.

[fX,~,output] = filter(Mdl,y); size(fX)

`ans = `*1×2*
100 1

fX100 = fX(100)

fX100 = 1.2073

fXVar100 = output(end).FilteredStatesCov

fXVar100 = 0.3714

tol = 1e-10; discrepencyMeans = fX100 - rtfX100; discrepencyVars = fXVar100 - rtfXVar100; areMeansEqual = norm(discrepencyMeans) < tol

`areMeansEqual = `*logical*
1

areVarsEqual = norm(discrepencyVars) < tol

`areVarsEqual = `*logical*
1

Like `update`

, the `filter`

function filters the observations through the model, but it returns all intermediate state estimates. Because `update`

returns only the final state estimate, it is more suited to real-time calculations than `filter`

.

### Filter States in Real Time

Consider the simulated data and state-space model in Compute Only Final State Distribution from Kalman Filter.

```
T = 100;
ARMdl = arima(AR=0.5,Constant=0,Variance=1);
x0 = 1.5;
rng(1); % For reproducibility
x = simulate(ARMdl,T,Y0=x0);
y = x + 0.75*randn(T,1);
A = 0.5;
B = 1;
C = 1;
D = 0.75;
Mdl = ssm(A,B,C,D);
```

Suppose observations are available sequentially, and consider obtaining the updated state distribution by filtering each new observation as it is available.

Simulate the following procedure using a loop.

Create variables that store the initial state distribution moments.

Filter the incoming observation through the model specifying the current initial state distribution moments.

Overwrite the current state distribution moments with the new state distribution moments.

Repeat steps 2 and 3 as new observations are available.

currentState = Mdl.Mean0; currentStateCov = Mdl.Cov0; newState = zeros(T,1); newStateCov = zeros(T,1); for j = 1:T [newState(j),newStateCov(j)] = update(Mdl,y(j),currentState,currentStateCov); currentState = newState(j); currentStateCov = newStateCov(j); end

Plot the observations, true state values, and new state means of each period.

figure plot(1:T,x,'-k',1:T,y,'*g',1:T,newState,':r','LineWidth',2) xlabel("Period") legend(["True state values" "Observations" "New state values"])

Compare the results to the results of `filter`

.

tol = 1e-10; [fX,~,output] = filter(Mdl,y); discrepencyMeans = fX - newState; discrepencyVars = [output.FilteredStatesCov]' - newStateCov; areMeansEqual = norm(discrepencyMeans) < tol

`areMeansEqual = `*logical*
1

areVarsEqual = norm(discrepencyVars) < tol

`areVarsEqual = `*logical*
1

The real-time filter `update`

, applied to the entire data set sequentially, returns the same state distributions as `filter`

.

### Nowcast State-Space Model Containing Regression Component

Consider that the linear relationship between the change in the unemployment rate and the nominal gross national product (nGNP) growth rate is of interest. Suppose the innovations of a mismeasured regression of the first difference of the unemployment rate onto the nGNP growth rate is an ARMA(1,1) series with Gaussian disturbances (that is, a regression model with ARMA(1,1) errors and measurement error). Symbolically, and in state-space form, the model is

$$\begin{array}{l}\left[\begin{array}{c}{x}_{1,t}\\ {x}_{2,t}\end{array}\right]=\left[\begin{array}{cc}\varphi & \theta \\ 0& 0\end{array}\right]\left[\begin{array}{c}{x}_{1,t-1}\\ {x}_{2,t-1}\end{array}\right]+\left[\begin{array}{c}1\\ 1\end{array}\right]{u}_{t}\\ {y}_{t}-\beta {Z}_{t}={x}_{1,t}+\sigma {\epsilon}_{t},\end{array}$$

where:

$${x}_{1,t}$$ is the ARMA error series in the regression model.

$${x}_{2,t}$$ is a dummy state for the MA(1) effect.

$${y}_{1,t}$$ is the observed change in the unemployment rate being deflated by the growth rate of nGNP ($${Z}_{t}$$).

$${u}_{t}$$ is a Gaussian series of disturbances having mean 0 and standard deviation 1.

${\epsilon}_{\mathit{t}}$ is a Gaussian series of measurement errors with scale $\sigma $.

Load the Nelson-Plosser data set, which contains the unemployment rate and nGNP series, among other measurements.

`load Data_NelsonPlosser`

Preprocess the data by following this procedure:

Remove the leading missing observations.

Convert the nGNP series to a return series by using

`price2ret`

.Apply the first difference to the unemployment rate series.

vars = ["GNPN" "UR"]; DT = rmmissing(DataTable(:,vars)); T = size(DT,1) - 1; % Sample size after differencing Z = [ones(T,1) price2ret(DT.GNPN)]; y = diff(DT.UR);

Though this example removes missing values, the Kalman filter accommodates series containing missing values.

Specify the coefficient matrices.

A = [NaN NaN; 0 0]; B = [1; 1]; C = [1 0]; D = NaN;

Specify the state-space model using `ssm`

.

Mdl = ssm(A,B,C,D);

Fit the model to all observations except for the final 10 observations (a holdout sample). Use a random set of initial parameter values for optimization. Specify the regression component and its initial value for optimization using the `'Predictors'`

and `'Beta0'`

name-value arguments, respectively. Restrict the estimate of $$\sigma $$ to all positive, real numbers.

fh = 10; params0 = [0.3 0.2 0.2]; [EstMdl,estParams] = estimate(Mdl,y(1:T-fh),params0,'Predictors',Z(1:T-fh,:), ... 'Beta0',[0.1 0.2],'lb',[-Inf,-Inf,0,-Inf,-Inf]);

`EstMdl`

is an `ssm`

model.

Nowcast the unemployment rate into the forecast horizon. Simulate this procedure using a loop:

Compute the current state distribution moments by filtering all in-sample observations through the estimated model.

When an observation is available in the forecast horizon, filter it through the model.

`EstMdl`

does not store the regression coefficients, so you must pass them in using the name-value argument`Beta`

.Set the current state distribution state moments to the nowcasts.

Repeat steps 2 and 3 when new observations are available.

[currentState,currentStateCov] = update(EstMdl,y(1:T-fh), ... Predictors=Z(1:T-fh,:),Beta=estParams(end-1:end)); unrateF = zeros(fh,2); unrateCovF = cell(fh,1); for j = 1:fh [unrateF(j,:),unrateCovF{j}] = update(EstMdl,y(T-fh+j),currentState,currentStateCov, ... Predictors=Z(T-fh+j,:),Beta=estParams(end-1:end)); currentState = unrateF(j,:)'; currentStateCov = unrateCovF{j}; end

Plot the estimated, filtered states. Recall that the first state is the change in the unemployment rate, and the second state helps build the first.

figure plot(dates((end-fh+1):end),[unrateF(:,1) y((end-fh+1):end)]); xlabel('Period') ylabel('Change in the unemployment rate') title('Filtered Change in the Unemployment Rate')

### Efficiently Obtain Observation Contributions to Full Data Likelihood

The `filter`

function returns only the sum of the loglikelihoods for specified observations. To efficiently compute the loglikelihood of each observation, which can be convenient for custom estimation techniques, use `update`

instead.

Consider the simulated data and state-space model in Compute Only Final State Distribution from Kalman Filter.

```
T = 100;
ARMdl = arima(AR=0.5,Constant=0,Variance=1);
x0 = 1.5;
rng(1); % For reproducibility
x = simulate(ARMdl,T,Y0=x0);
y = x + 0.75*randn(T,1);
A = 0.5;
B = 1;
C = 1;
D = 0.75;
Mdl = ssm(A,B,C,D);
```

Evaluate the likelihood function for each observation.

[~,~,logLj] = update(Mdl,y);

`logL`

is a 100-by-1 vector; `logL(`

`j`

`)`

is the loglikelihood evaluated at observation * j*.

Use `filter`

to evaluate the likelihood for the entire data set.

[~,logL] = filter(Mdl,y);

`logL`

is a scalar representing the full data likelihood.

Because the software assumes the sample is randomly drawn, the likelihood for all observations is the sum of the individual loglikelihood values. Confirm this fact.

tol = 1e-10; discrepency = logL - sum(logLj); areEqual = discrepency < tol

`areEqual = `*logical*
1

## Input Arguments

`Mdl`

— Standard state-space model

`ssm`

model object

Standard state-space model, specified as an `ssm`

model object
returned by `ssm`

or `estimate`

.

If `Mdl`

is partially specified (that is, it contains unknown
parameters), specify estimates of the unknown parameters by using the `'Params'`

name-value argument. Otherwise, `update`

issues an error.

`Mdl`

does not store observed responses or predictor data. Supply
the data wherever necessary using the appropriate input or name-value arguments.

`Y`

— Observed response data

numeric matrix | cell vector of numeric vectors

Observed response data, specified as a numeric matrix or a cell vector of numeric vectors.

If

`Mdl`

is time invariant with respect to the observation equation, then`Y`

is a*T*-by-*n*matrix, where each row corresponds to a period and each column corresponds to a particular observation in the model.*T*is the sample size and*m*is the number of observations per period. The last row of`Y`

contains the latest observations.If

`Mdl`

is time varying with respect to the observation equation, then`Y`

is a*T*-by-1 cell vector. Each element of the cell vector corresponds to a period and contains an*n*-dimensional vector of observations for that period. The corresponding dimensions of the coefficient matrices in_{t}`Mdl.C{t}`

and`Mdl.D{t}`

must be consistent with the matrix in`Y{t}`

for all periods. The last cell of`Y`

contains the latest observations.

`NaN`

elements indicate missing observations. For details on how the
Kalman filter accommodates missing observations, see Algorithms.

`currentState`

— Current mean of state distribution

`Mdl.Mean0`

(default) | numeric vector

The current mean of the state distribution (in other words, the mean at time 1
before the Kalman filter processes the specified observations `Y`

),
specified as an *m*-by-1 numeric vector. *m* is the
number of states.

**Data Types: **`double`

`CurrentStateCov`

— Current covariance matrix of state distribution

`Mdl.Cov0`

(default) | numeric matrix

The current covariance matrix of the state distribution (in other words, the
covariance matrix at time 1 before the Kalman filter processes the specified
observations `Y`

), specified as an
*m*-by-*m* symmetric, positive semi-definite numeric
matrix.

**Data Types: **`double`

### Name-Value Arguments

Specify optional pairs of arguments as
`Name1=Value1,...,NameN=ValueN`

, where `Name`

is
the argument name and `Value`

is the corresponding value.
Name-value arguments must appear after other arguments, but the order of the
pairs does not matter.

*
Before R2021a, use commas to separate each name and value, and enclose*
`Name`

*in quotes.*

**Example: **`update(Mdl,Y,Params=params,SquareRoot=true)`

sets unknown
parameters in the partially specified model `Mdl`

to the values in
`params`

, and specifies use of the square-root Kalman filter variant for
numerical stability.

`Params`

— Estimates of unknown parameters

numeric vector

Estimates of the unknown parameters in the partially specified state-space model `Mdl`

, specified as a numeric vector.

If `Mdl`

is partially specified (contains unknown parameters specified by `NaN`

s), you must specify `Params`

. The `estimate`

function returns parameter estimates of `Mdl`

in the appropriate form. However, you can supply custom estimates by arranging the elements of `Params`

as follows:

If

`Mdl`

is an explicitly created model (`Mdl.ParamMap`

is empty`[]`

), arrange the elements of`Params`

to correspond to hits of a column-wise search of`NaN`

s in the state-space model coefficient matrices, initial state mean vector, and covariance matrix.If

`Mdl`

is time invariant, the order is`A`

,`B`

,`C`

,`D`

,`Mean0`

, and`Cov0`

.If

`Mdl`

is time varying, the order is`A{1}`

through`A{end}`

,`B{1}`

through`B{end}`

,`C{1}`

through`C{end}`

,`D{1}`

through`D{end}`

,`Mean0`

, and`Cov0`

.

If

`Mdl`

is an implicitly created model (`Mdl.ParamMap`

is a function handle), the first input argument of the parameter-to-matrix mapping function determines the order of the elements of`Params`

.

If `Mdl`

is fully specified, `update`

ignores `Params`

.

**Example: **Consider the state-space model `Mdl`

with `A = B = [NaN 0; 0 NaN]`

, `C = [1; 1]`

, `D = 0`

, and initial state means of 0 with covariance `eye(2)`

. `Mdl`

is partially specified and explicitly created. Because the model parameters contain a total of four `NaN`

s, `Params`

must be a 4-by-1 vector, where `Params(1)`

is the estimate of `A(1,1)`

, `Params(2)`

is the estimate of `A(2,2)`

, `Params(3)`

is the estimate of `B(1,1)`

, and `Params(4)`

is the estimate of `B(2,2)`

.

**Data Types: **`double`

`Univariate`

— Flag for applying univariate treatment of multivariate series

`false`

(default) | `true`

Flag for applying the univariate treatment of a multivariate series (also known as
*sequential filtering*), specified as `true`

or `false`

. A value of `true`

applies the univariate
treatment.

The univariate treatment can accelerate and improve numerical stability of the
Kalman filter. However, all observation innovations must be uncorrelated. That is,
*D _{t}*

*D*' must be diagonal, where

_{t}*D*,

_{t}*t*= 1,...,

*T*, is one of the following:

The matrix

`D{t}`

in a time-varying state-space modelThe matrix

`D`

in a time-invariant state-space model

**Example: **`Univariate=true`

**Data Types: **`logical`

`SquareRoot`

— Flag for applying square-root Kalman filter variant

`false`

(default) | `true`

Flag for applying the square-root Kalman filter variant, specified as
`true`

or `false`

. A value of
`true`

applies the square-root filter when
`update`

implements the Kalman filter.

If you suspect that the eigenvalues of the filtered state or forecasted
observation covariance matrices are close to zero, set
`SquareRoot=true`

. The square-root filter is robust to numerical
issues arising from the finite precision of calculations, but it requires more
computational resources.

**Example: **`SquareRoot=true`

**Data Types: **`logical`

`Tolerance`

— Forecast uncertainty threshold

`0`

(default) | nonnegative scalar

Forecast uncertainty threshold, specified as a nonnegative scalar.

If the forecast uncertainty for a particular observation is less than
`Tolerance`

during numerical estimation, then the software removes
the uncertainty corresponding to the observation from the forecast covariance matrix
before its inversion.

It is best practice to set `Tolerance`

to a small number, for
example, `le-15`

, to overcome numerical obstacles during
estimation.

**Example: **`Tolerance=le-15`

**Data Types: **`double`

`Predictors`

— Predictor variables in state-space model observation equation

`[]`

(default) | numeric matrix

Predictor variables in the state-space model observation equation, specified as a
*T*-by-*d* numeric matrix, where
*d* is the number of predictor variables. Row *t*
corresponds to the observed predictors at period *t*
(*Z _{t}*). The expanded observation equation is

$${y}_{t}-{Z}_{t}\beta =C{x}_{t}+D{u}_{t}.$$

That is, `update`

deflates the observations
using the regression component. *β* is the time-invariant vector of
regression coefficients that the software estimates with all other parameters.

If there are *n* observations per period, then the software
regresses all predictor series onto each observation.

If you specify `Predictors`

, then `Mdl`

must be
time invariant. Otherwise, the software returns an error.

By default, the software excludes a regression component from the state-space model.

**Data Types: **`double`

`Beta`

— Regression coefficients

`[]`

(default) | numeric matrix

Regression coefficients corresponding to predictor variables, specified as a
*d*-by-*n* numeric matrix. *d* is
the number of predictor variables (see `Predictors`

).

If `Mdl`

is an estimated state-space model, specify the
estimated regression coefficients stored in `estParams`

.

## Output Arguments

`nextState`

— State mean after `update`

applies Kalman filter

numeric vector

State mean after `update`

applies the Kalman filter,
returned as an *m*-by-1 numeric vector. Elements correspond to the
order of the states defined in `Mdl`

`A`

or as determined by `Mdl.ParamMap`

).

`NextStateCov`

— State covariance matrix after `update`

applies Kalman filter

numeric matrix

State covariance matrix after `update`

applies the Kalman
filter, returned as an *m*-by-*m* numeric matrix. Rows

(either by the rows of `A`

or as determined by
`Mdl.ParamMap`

).

`logL`

— Loglikelihood for each observation

numeric vector

Loglikelihood for each observation in `Y`

, returned as an
*T*-by-1 numeric vector.

## More About

### Real-Time State-Distribution Update

The *real-time state-distribution update* applies
one recursion of the Kalman filter to a standard state-space model given a length
*T* response series and the state distribution at time
*T* - 1, to compute the state distribution at time
*T*.

Consider a state-space model expressed in compact form

$$\left[\begin{array}{c}{x}_{t}\\ {y}_{t}\end{array}\right]=\left[\begin{array}{c}{A}_{t}\\ {A}_{t}{C}_{t}\end{array}\right]{x}_{t-1}+\left[\begin{array}{cc}{B}_{t}& 0\\ {B}_{t}{C}_{t}& {D}_{t}\end{array}\right]\left[\begin{array}{c}{u}_{t}\\ {\epsilon}_{t}\end{array}\right].$$

The Kalman filter proceeds as follows for each period *t*:

Obtain the forecast distributions for each period in the data by recursively applying the conditional expectation to the state-space equation, given initial state distribution moments

*x*_{0|0}and*P*_{0|0}, and all observations up to time*t*− 1 (*Y*^{t−1}_{1}). The resulting conditional distribution is$$\left[\begin{array}{c}{x}_{t}\\ {y}_{t}\end{array}\right]|{Y}_{1}^{t-1}~{\rm N}\left(\left[\begin{array}{c}{\widehat{x}}_{t|t-1}\\ {\widehat{y}}_{t|t-1}\end{array}\right],\left[\begin{array}{cc}{P}_{t|t-1}& {L}_{t|t-1}\\ {L}_{t|t-l}^{\prime}& {V}_{t|t-1}\end{array}\right]\right),$$

where:

$${\widehat{x}}_{t|t-1}={A}_{t}{\widehat{x}}_{t-1|t-1},$$ the state forecast for time

*t*.$${\widehat{y}}_{t|t-1}={C}_{t}{\widehat{x}}_{t|t-1},$$ the forecasted response for time

*t*.$${P}_{t|t-1}={A}_{t}{P}_{t-1|t-1}{A}_{t}^{\prime}+{B}_{t}{B}_{t}^{\prime},$$ the state forecast covariance.

$${V}_{t|t-1}={C}_{t}{P}_{t-1|t-1}{C}_{t}^{\prime}+{D}_{t}{D}_{t}^{\prime},$$ the forecasted response covariance.

$${L}_{t|t-1}={P}_{t-1|t-1}{C}_{t}^{\prime},$$ the state and response forecast covariance.

Filter observation

*t*through the model to obtain the updated state distribution:$${x}_{t}|{Y}_{1}^{t}~{\rm N}\left({\widehat{x}}_{t|t},{P}_{t|t}\right),$$

where:

$${\widehat{x}}_{t|t}={\widehat{x}}_{t|t-1}+{L}_{t|t-1}{V}_{t|t-1}^{-1}\left({y}_{t}-{\widehat{y}}_{t|t-1}\right),$$ the state filter estimator.

$${P}_{t|t}={P}_{t|t-1}-{L}_{t|t-1}{V}_{t|t-1}^{-1}{L}_{t|t-1}^{\prime},$$ the state covariance filter estimator.

When $${\widehat{x}}_{t-1|t-1}$$ is the current state mean and
*P*_{t−1|t−1}
is the current state covariance, $${\widehat{x}}_{t|t}$$ is the new state mean and
*P*_{t|t} is
the new state covariance.

## Algorithms

The Kalman filter accommodates missing data by not updating filtered state estimates corresponding to missing observations. In other words, suppose there is a missing observation at period

*t*. Then, the state forecast for period*t*based on the previous*t*– 1 observations and filtered state for period*t*are equivalent.For explicitly defined state-space models,

`update`

applies all predictors to each response series. However, each response series has its own set of regression coefficients.For efficiency,

`update`

does minimal input validation.In theory, the state covariance matrix must be symmetric and positive semi-definite.

`update`

forces symmetry of the covariance matrix before it applies the Kalman filter, but it does not check whether the matrix is positive semi-definite.

## Alternative Functionality

To obtain filtered states for each period in the response data, call the `filter`

function instead. Unlike `update`

,
`filter`

performs comprehensive input validation.
