Model Specification Tests Based on Artificial Linear Regressions

Abstract

This paper develops an extremely general procedure for performing a wide variety of model specification tests by running artificial linear regressions. Inference may then be based either on a Lagrange Multiplier statistic from the procedure, or on conventional asymptotic t or F tests based on the artificial regressions. This procedure allows us to develop non-nested hypothesis tests for any set of models which attempt to explain the same dependent variable(s), even when the error specifications of the competing models differ.
