The Exact Distribution of Zellner's SUR



This paper derives the exact finite sample distribution of the two-stage GLS (generalized least squares) estimator in a multivariate linear model with general linear parameter restrictions. This includes the seemingly unrelated regression (SUR) model as a special case and generalizes presently known exact results for the latter system. The usual classical assumptions are made concerning nonrandom exogenous variables and normally distributed errors.
