ABSTRACT: This paper presents specification tests that are applicable after estimating a dynamic model from panel data by the generalized method of moments, and studies the practical performance of these procedures using both generated and real data. The authors' generalized method of moments estimator optimally exploits all the linear moment restrictions that follow from the assumption of no serial correlation in the errors in an equation which contains individual effects, lagged dependent variables, and no strictly exogenous variables. They propose a test of serial correlation based on the generalized method of moments residuals and compare this with Sargan tests of overidentifying restrictions and Hausman specification tests.

Article: Infereni on full or partial parameters based on the standardized signed log likelihood ratio

ABSTRACT: Suppose that a random sample of size n is drawn from a statistical model ℳ of probability density p(x;ω) where the parameter ω is assumed to be uniquely expressed by χ∈R d and Ψ∈R f . Let ω ^ be the maximum likelihood estimator of ω under ℳ and let 1(ω) be the log likelihood. Further let ℳ Ψ be a submodel obtained by fixing Ψ in ℳ. Suppose that (ω ^,a 0 ) is minimal sufficient under ℳ such that a 0 is approximately ancillary and the conditional density of ω ^ for given a 0 satisfies p(ω ^;ωa 0 )=[const·j(ω ^) 1/2 exp{l(ω)l(ω ^)}][1+O(n 3/2 )] where j(ω)=∂ 2 l(ω)/∂ω∂ω t . Then it is shown in this paper that there exists a statistic r Ψ * of dimension f under ℳ Ψ which follows fdimensional normal distribution N(0,I) to relative order O(n 3/2 ). This is used to get confidence regions for the partial parameter Ψ, independently of the nuisance parameter χ. When f=1, r Ψ * is obtained by adjusting the mean and variance of the signed log likelihood ratio statistic given by {sgn(Ψ ^Ψ)}[2{l(ω ^)l(χ ^ Ψ ,Ψ)}] 1/2 , where χ ^ Ψ stands for the maximum likelihood estimator of χ under the model ℳ Ψ .Biometrika 01/1986; 73(2):307322. · 1.65 Impact Factor
