Non-parametric specification testing of non-nested econometric models
AbstractWe consider the non-nested testing prqblem of non-parametric regressions. We show that, when the regression functions are unknown under both the null and the alternative hypotheses, an extension of the J-test procedure of Davidson and Mackinnon (1981) will lead to a test statistic with well defined asymptotic properties. The derivation of the test statistic involves double kernel estimation. Monte Carlo simulations suggest that the test has good size and power characteristics.
