DURBINH: Stata module to calculate Durbin's h test for serial correlation
AbstractIn the presence of lagged dependent variables, the Durbin-Watson statistic and Box-Pierce Q statistics are not appropriate tests for serial correlation in the errors. Durbin's h statistic may be used in this context. An asymptotically equivalent variant of Durbin's h statistic is computed by this command. This is version 1.04 of the software, updated from that published in STB-55. The force option has been added to allow durbinh to be employed after regress, robust and newey. The test is built in to Stata 8 as "durbina"; also see "durbina2" which will work on a single timeseries of a panel.
