Common factors in conditional distributions for bivariate time series
A definition for a common factor for bivariate time series is suggested by considering the decomposition of the conditional density into the product of the marginals and the copula,�with the conditioning variable being a common factor if it does not directly enter the copula.� The links of this definition with a common factor being a dominant feature in standard linear representations is shown. An application using a business cycle indicator as the common factor in the relationship between U.S. income and consumption found that both series held the factor� in their marginals but not in the copula.
