dc.description.abstract Time-varying proportions arise frequently in economics. Market shares show the relative importance of firms in a market. Labor economists divide populations into different labor market segments. Expenditure shares describe how consumers and firms allocate total expenditure to various categories. We introduce a state space model where unobserved states are Gaussian and observations are conditionally Dirichlet. Markov chain Monte Carlo techniques allow inference for unknown parameters and states. We draw states as a block using a multivariate Gaussian proposal distribution based on a quadratic approximation of the log conditional density of states given parameters and data. Repeated draws from the proposal distribution are particularly efficient. We illustrate using automobile production data.
