Sample Size Requirements for Estimation in SUR Models
This paper explores sample size requirements for the estimation of SUR models by (two-stage) feasible generalized least squares, maximum likelihood and Bayesian methods. It is found that the sample size requirements presented in standard treatments of SUR models are incomplete and potentially misleading. It is also demonstrated that likelihood-based methods potentially require larger sample sizes than does the two-stage estimator considered in this paper.
