Asymptotic approximations in the near-integrated model with a non-zero initial condition
This paper considers various asymptotic approximations in the near-integrated first-order autoregressive model with a non-zero initial condition. We first extend the work of Knight and Satchell (1993), who considered the random walk case with a zero initial con-dition, to derive the expansion of the relevant joint moment generating function in this more general framework. We also consider, as alternative approximations, the stochastic expansion of Phillips (1987c) and the continuous-time approximation of Perron (1991a). We assess, via a Monte Carlo simulation study, the extent to which these alternative methods provide adequate approximations to the finite sample distribution of the least-squares estimator in a first-order autoregressive model. The results show that, when the initial condition is non-zero, Perron¹s (1991a) continuous-time approximation performs very well while the others only offer improvements when the initial condition is zero.
