A Portmanteau Test For Serially Correlated Errors In Fixed Effects Models
AbstractWe propose a portmanteau test for serial correlation of the error term in a fixed effects model. The test is derived as a Lagrange multiplier test, but it also has a straightforward Wald test interpretation. In Monte Carlo experiments, the test displays good size and power properties.The authors thank the co-editor, the referee, David Drukker, Christian Hansen, and Jeffrey Wooldridge for their helpful comments.
