Clarify treatment of measurement error and correlations in manual

......@@ -2158,7 +2158,7 @@ Specifies the correlation of two variables.
In an estimation context, it is also possible to specify variances and
covariances on endogenous variables: in that case, these values are
interpreted as the calibration of the measurement errors on these
variables. This requires the @code{var_obs}-command to be specified before the @code{shocks}-block.
Here is an example:

the observation errors/measurement errors associated with endogenous observed variables
@var{VARIABLE_NAME1} and @var{VARIABLE_NAME2}, is to be estimated. Note that correlations set by previous @code{shocks}-blocks or @code{estimation}-commands are kept at their value set prior to estimation if they are not estimated again subsequently. Thus, the treatment is the same as in the case of deep parameters set during model calibration and not estimated.
@item @var{PARAMETER_NAME}
The name of a model parameter to be estimated
