The Sensitivity of Some General Checks to Omitted Variables in the Linear Model
AbstractThis paper examines the usefulness of H. White's (1982) information matrix test and test for heteroskedasticity of unspecified form as general checks of adequacy in the context of linear models. Asymptotic analysis and Monte Carlo results are provided, with the latter covering a number of general misspecification tests. Comments are made on the value of testing for normality.
