Variable set by the @code{forecast} option of the @code{estimation} command when used with the nobs = [@var{INTEGER1}:@var{INTEGER2}] option (@xref{nobs1,,nobs}).
Fields are of the form:
@end example
where @var{FORECAST_OBJECT} is one of the following@footnote{See @ref{forecast} for more information}:
@table @code
@item Mean
Mean of the posterior forecast distribution
@item HPDinf/HPDsup
Upper/lower bound of the 90\% HPD interval taking into account only parameter uncertainty
@item HPDTotalinf/HPDTotalsup
Upper/lower bound of the 90\% HPD interval taking into account both parameter and future shock uncertainty
@end table
@var{VARIABLE_NAME} contains a matrix of the following size: number of time periods for which forecasts are requested using the nobs = [@var{INTEGER1}:@var{INTEGER2}] option times the number of forecast horizons requested by the @code{forecast} option. I.e., the row indicates the period at which the forecast is performed and the column the respective k-step ahead forecast. The starting periods are sorted in ascending order, not in declaration order.
