Alternatively, this command is also used in conjunction with the <xref linkend="partial_information"/> option of <xref linkend="stoch_simul"/>, for declaring the set of observed variables when solving the model under partial information.

Only one instance of <command>varobs</command> is allowed in a model file. If one needs to declare observed variables in a loop, the macroprocessor can be used as shown in the second example below.
