ARCHLM: Stata module to calculate LM test for ARCH effects
Abstractarchlm computes Engle's LM test for ARCH (autoregressive conditional heteroskedasticity) effects in a regression residual series for a specified number of lags p. A list of lag orders may be given; if none are given, one lag is presumed. For each specified order, the squared residual series is regressed on p of its own lags. The test statistic, a T R^2 measure, is distributed Chi-squared(p) under the null hypothesis of no ARCH effects. See STB-54 for details. The test is built in to Stata 7 as "archlm"; also see "archlm2" which will work on a single timeseries of a panel.
