Sieve bootstrap t-tests on long-run average parameters

Fuertes, A-M. ORCID: 0000-0001-6468-9845 (2008). Sieve bootstrap t-tests on long-run average parameters. Computational Statistics & Data Analysis, 52(7), pp. 3354-3370. doi: 10.1016/j.csda.2007.11.014


Panel estimators can provide consistent measures of a long-run average parameter even if the individual regressions are spurious. However, the t-test on this parameter is fraught with problems because the limit distribution of the test statistic is non-standard and rather complicated, particularly in panels with mixed (non-)stationary errors. A sieve bootstrap framework is suggested to approximate the distribution of the t-statistic. An extensive Monte Carlo study demonstrates that the bootstrap is quite useful in this context.
