The Local Power of the Tests of Overidentifying Restrictions
The local power function of the size-corrected likelihood ratio, linearized likelihood ratio, and Lagrange multiplier tests of overidentifying restrictions on a structural equation is the same to the order 1/T. Moreover, this local power function doe s not depend on the k-class estimator used in the calculation of the test statistic. When the author does not use size-corrected tests, a degrees of freedom corrected likelihood ratio test seems to have the best size and power properties. Finally, the implicit null hypothesis of these tests indicates that they can be interpreted as testing the validity of the structural specification of the equation against any other identified structural equation that encompasses the original e quation.
