Some believe that calibration should not involve previous econometric estimation. According to this view, all parameters within a model should be set to match particular data points or statistical moments of a data set (sample means, variances, and covariances), but not to match econometric estimates found in the literature. Others broaden the targets to include previous statistical estimates of the model’s parameters and behavioral responses, even if the model used in the estimation is not the same as the one used in the calibration.
