Small Sample Properties and Pretest Estimation of A Spatial Hausman-Taylor Model
This paper considers a Hausman and Taylor (1981) panel data model that exhibits a Cliff and Ord (1973) spatial error structure. We analyze the small sample properties of a generalized moments estimation approach for that model. This spatial Hausman-Taylor estimator allows for endogeneity of the time-varying and time-invariant variables with the individual effects. For this model, the spatial effects estimator is known to be consistent, but its disadvantage is that it wipes out the effects of time-invariant variables, which are important for most empirical studies. Monte Carlo results show that the spatial Hausman-Taylor estimator performs well in small samples. Key Words: Hausman-Taylor estimator; Spatial random effects; Small sample properties JEL No. C23, 31
