On the Use of Distributional Mis-specification Checks in Limited Dependent Variable Models
A unified approach to testing for distributional misspecification in parametric limited dependent variable models is described and discussed. The approach involves examining the significance of certain moment-type expressions. A form of the test statistic may be obtained as nR(superscript)2 from a simple least squares regression. The procedure is sufficiently general to subsume several tests already described in the literature for particular limited dependent variable models, but to have a wider applicability. Two practical examples, binary choice and duration analysis, are provided both to motivate the procedure and to illustrate the implementation of the methodology.
