We study a functional version of nonstationary fractionally integrated time series, covering the functional unit root as a special case. The time series taking values in an infinite-dimensional separable Hilbert space are projected onto a finite number of sub-spaces, the level of nonstationarity allowed to vary over them. Under regularity condition...

We develop refined inference for spatial regression models with predetermined regressors. The ordinary least squares estimate of the spatial parameter is neither consistent nor asymptotically normal, unless the elements of the spatial weight matrix uniformly vanish as sample size diverges. We develop refined testing of the hypothesis of no spatial...
Article
In this paper, we consider efficiency improvement in a nonparametric panel data model with cross-sectional dependence. A Generalized Least Squares (GLS)-type estimator is proposed by taking into account this dependence structure. Parameterizing the cross-sectional dependence, a local linear estimator is shown to be dominated by this type of GLS est...

This paper studies stationary functional time series with long‐range dependence, and estimates the memory parameter involved. Semiparametric local Whittle estimation is used, where periodogram is constructed from the approximate first score, which is an inner product of the functional observation and estimated leading eigenfunction.

The paper develops point estimation and asymptotic theory with respect to a semiparametric model for time series with moving mean and unconditional heteroscedasticity. These two features are modelled nonparametrically, whereas autocorrelations are described by a short memory stationary parametric time series model. We first study the usual least sq...

Article
Full-text available
We discuss developments and future prospects for statistical modeling and inference for spatial data that have long memory. While a number of contributons have been made, the literature is relatively small and scattered, compared to the literatures on long memory time series on the one hand, and spatial data with short memory on the other. Thus, ov...
Article
In a general class of semiparametric pure spatial models (having no explanatory variables) allowing nonlinearity in the parameter and the weight matrix, we propose adaptive tests and estimates which are asymptotically efficient in the presence of unknown, nonparametric distributional form. Feasibility of adaptive estimation is verified and its effi...

The article discusses statistical inference in parametric models for panel data. The models feature dynamics of a general nature, individual effects, and possible explanatory variables. The focus is on large-cross-section inference on Gaussian pseudo maximum likelihood estimates with temporal dimension kept fixed, partially complementing and extend...

We introduce methods and theory for functional or curve time series with long-range dependence. The temporal sum of the curve process is shown to be asymp-totically normally distributed, the conditions for this covering a functional version of fractionally integrated autoregressive moving averages. We also construct an estimate of the long-run cova...
Article
Semiparametric panel data modelling and statistical inference with fractional stochastic trends, nonparametrically time-trending individual effects, and general cross-sectional correlation and heteroscedasticity in innovations are developed. The fractional stochastic trends allow for a wide range of nonstationarity, indexed by a memory parameter, n...

Pseudo maximum likelihood estimates are developed for higher-order spatial autoregressive models with increasingly many parameters, including models with spatial lags in the dependent variables both with and without a linear or nonlinear regression component, and regression models with spatial autoregressive disturbances. Consistency and asymptotic...
Article
Central limit theorems are established for the sum, over a spatial region, of observations from a linear process on a $d$-dimensional lattice. This region need not be rectangular, but can be irregularly-shaped. Separate results are established for the cases of positive strong dependence, short range dependence, and negative dependence. We provide a...
Article
We consider testing the null hypothesis of no spatial correlation against the alternative of pure first order spatial autoregression. A test statistic based on the least squares estimate has good first-order asymptotic properties, but these may not be relevant in small- or moderate-sized samples, especially as (depending on properties of the spatia...

Full-text available
An asymptotic theory is developed for series estimation of nonparametric and semiparametric regression models for cross-sectional data under conditions on disturbances that allow for forms of cross-sectional dependence and hetero- geneity, including conditional and unconditional heteroskedascity, along with conditions on regressors that allow depen...
Article
We propose a new and easy-to-use method for identifying cointegrated components of nonstationary time series, consisting of an eigenalysis for a certain non-negative definite matrix. Our setting is model-free, and we allow the integer-valued integration orders of the observable series to be unknown, and to possibly differ. Consistency of estimates...
Article
Full-text available
We develop non-nested tests in a general spatial, spatio-temporal or panel data context. The spatial aspect can be interpreted quite generally, in either a geographical sense, or employing notions of economic distance, or when parametric modelling arises in part from a common factor or other structure. In the former case, observations may be regula...

Full-text available
In a panel data model with fixed effects, possible cross-sectional dependence is investigated in a spatial autoregressive setting. An Edgeworth expansion is developed for the maximum likelihood estimate of the spatial correlation coefficient. The expansion is used to develop more accurate interval estimates for the coefficient, and tests for cross-...

Nonparametric regression is developed for data with both a temporal and a cross-sectional dimension. The model includes additive, unknown, individual-specific components and allows also for cross-sectional and temporal dependence and conditional heteroscedasticity. A simple nonparametric estimate is shown to be dominated by a GLS-type one. Asymptot...

Full-text available
A dynamic panel data model is considered that contains possibly stochastic individual components and a common stochastic time trend that allows for stationary and nonstationary long memory and general parametric short memory.

We consider time series that, possibly after integer differencing or integrating or other detrending, are covariance stationary with spectral density that is regularly varying near zero frequency, and unspecified elsewhere. This semiparametric framework includes series with short, long and negative memory. We consider the consistency of the popular...
Article
For testing lack of correlation against spatial autoregressive alternatives, Lagrange multiplier tests enjoy their usual computational advantages, but the (χ2) rst-order asymptotic approximation to critical values can be poor in small samples. We develop refined tests for lack of spatial error correlation in regressions, based on Edgeworth expansio...

A semiparametric model is proposed in which a parametric filtering of a nonstationary time series, incorporating fractionally differencing with short memory correction, removes correlation but leaves a nonparametric deterministic trend. Estimates of the memory parameter and other dependence parameters are proposed, and shown to be consistent and as...

We consider the estimation of parametric fractional time series models in which not only is the memory parameter unknown, but one may not know whether it lies in the stationary/invertible region or the nonstationary or noninvertible regions. In these circumstances, a proof of consistency (which is a prerequisite for proving asymptotic normality) ca...

We consider a multivariate continuous-time process, generated by a system of linear stochastic differential equations, driven by white noise, and involving coefficients that possibly vary over time. The process is observable only at discrete, but not necessarily equally-spaced, time points (though equal spacing significantly simplifies matters). Su...
Article
Disregarding spatial dependence can invalidate methods for analyzing cross-sectional and panel data. We discuss ongoing work on developing methods that allow for, test for, or estimate, spatial dependence. Much of the stress is on nonparametric and semiparametric methods.

Asset returns are frequently assumed to be determined by one or more common factors. We consider a bivariate factor model where the unobservable common factor and idiosyncratic errors are stationary and serially uncorrelated but have strong dependence in higher moments. Stochastic volatility models for the latent variables are employed, in view of...

Nonlinear functions of multivariate financial time series can exhibit long memory and fractional cointegration. However, tools for analysing these phenomena have principally been justified under assumptions that are invalid in this setting. Determination of asymptotic theory under more plausible assumptions can be complicated and lengthy. We discus...

We develop a sequence of tests for specifying the cointegrating rank of, possiblyfractional, multiple time series. Memory parameters of observables are treated asunknown, as are those of possible cointegrating errors. The individual test statisticshave standard null asymptotics, and are related to Hausman specification teststatistics: when the memo...

We provide a general class of tests for correlation in time series, spatial, spatio-temporal and cross-sectional data.

Employing recent results of Robinson (2005) we consider the asymptotic properties ofconditional-sum-of-squares (CSS) estimates of parametric models for stationary timeseries with long memory.

Strong consistency and asymptotic normality of the Gaussian pseudo-maximumlikelihood estimate of the parameters in a wide class of ARCH(8) processesare established. We require the ARCH weights to decay at least hyperbolically,with a faster rate needed for the central limit theorem than for the law of largenumbers. Various rates are illustrated in e...

Much time series data are recorded on economic and financial variables. Statistical modeling of such data is now very well developed, and has applications in forecasting. We review a variety of statistical models from the viewpoint of "memory", or strength of dependence across time, which is a helpful discriminator between different phenomena of in...
Article
In a number of semiparametric models, smoothing seems necessary in order to obtain estimates of the parametric component which are asymptotically normal and converge at parametric rate. However, smoothing can inflate the error in the normal approximation, so that refined approximations are of interest, especially in sample sizes that are not enormo...

We consider a time series model involving a fractional stochastic component, whose integration order can lie in the stationary/invertible or nonstationary regions and be unknown, and additive deterministic component consisting of a generalised polynomial. The model can thus incorporate competing descriptions of trending behaviour. The stationary in...

The asymptotic distributions of cointegration tests are approximated using the Gamma distribution. The tests considered are for the I(1), the conditional I(1), as well as the I(2) model. Formulae for the parameters of the Gamma distributions are derived from response surfaces. The resulting approximation is flexible, easy to implement and more accu...

Cointegrated bivariate nonstationary time series are considered in a fractional context, without allowance for deterministic trends. Both the observable series and the cointegrating error can be fractional processes. The familiar situation in which the respective integration orders are 1 and 0 is nested, but these values have typically been assumed...

This paper develops methods of investigating the existence and extent of cointegration in fractionally integrated systems. We focus on stationary series, with some discussion of extension to nonstationarity. The setting is semiparametric, so that modelling is effectively confined to a neighbourhood of frequency zero. We first discuss the definition...

Several semiparametric estimates of the memory parameter in standard long memory time series are now available. They consider only local behaviour of the spectrum near zero frequency, about which the spectrum is symmetric. However long-range dependence can appear as a spectral pole at any Nyqvist frequency (reflecting seasonal or cyclical long-memo...
