GPHUDAK: Stata module to estimate long memory in a timeseries
gphudak computes the Geweke/Porter-Hudak (GPH, 1983) estimate of the long memory (fractional integration) parameter, d, of a timeseries. The GPH method uses nonparametric methods--a spectral regression estimator-- to evaluate d without explicit specification of the 'short memory' (ARMA) parameters of the series. The series is usually differenced so that the resulting d estimate will fall in the [-0.5, 0.5] interval. This is version 1.1.2 of the software, updated from that published in STB-57, and compatible with Stata version 8 syntax. It may be applied to a single timeseries in a panel with the if qualifier or to all timeseries with the by prefix.
