A Online Appendix A.1 Full specification of the model The common factor f t affects all the observed variables; it evolves according to the following rule: f t = μ 0 (1 - s t ) + μ 1 s t + s t x t + e f,t , e f,t ∼ N (0 , σ 2 f ) . (A.1) The indicator s t ∈ { 0 , 1 } equals one whenever there is an abnormal episode; it is a two-state Markov-switching process whose evolution is summarized by p = Pr( s t = 1 | s t - 1 = 1) and q = Pr( s t = 0 | s t - 1 = 0). In case of an abnormal episode ( s t = 1), the common factor is augmented by an unobserved variable x t , which evolves as follows: x t = s t x t - 1 + (1 - s t ) v t , v t ∼ N (0 , σ 2 v ) . (A.2) Whenever there is an abnormal episode, the common factor is augmented by x t , which takes a random value at the beginning of the episode and then remains constant for the duration of the episode. Each monthly variable is assumed to be a combination of the common factor f t and an individual component u i,t : y m i,t = γ i f t + u i,t . (A.3) Each individual component is assumed to have P lags: u i,t = ψ i, 1 u i,t - 1 + ... + ψ i,P u i,t - P + e i,t , e i,t ∼ N (0 , σ 2 i ) . (A.4) In addition, following Mariano and Murasawa ( 2003 ), the growth rate of a variable observed with quarterly frequency (such as the GDP) can be expressed as a combination of its monthly unobserved growth rates as follows: y q j,t = 1 3 y m j,t + 2 3 y m j,t - 1 + y m j,t - 2 + 2 3 y m j,t - 3 + 1 3 y m j,t - 4 . (A.5) In turn, the monthly growth rates have the same decomposition as described in equation ( A.3 ), so that we can express each quarterly growth rate as a combination of the common factor and ECB Working Paper Series No 2381 / March 2020 37

the individual component, as follows: y q j,t = 1 3 γ j f t + 2 3 γ j f t - 1 + γ j f t - 2 + 2 3 γ j f t - 3 + 1 3 γ j f t - 4 + + 1 3 u j,t + 2 3 u j,t - 1 + u j,t - 2 + 2 3 u j,t - 3 + 1 3 u j,t - 4 . (A.6) As for the individual components of the quarterly series, they have the same structure as those described by equation ( A.4 ) for the monthly series.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
