Criterion-Based Inference for GMM in Autoregressive Panel Data Models.
In this paper we examine the properties of a simple criterion-based, likelihood ratio type test of parameter restrictions for standard GMM estimators in autoregressive panel data models. A comparison is made with recent test proposals based on the continuously-updated GMM criterion (1996) or exponential tilting parameters (1998). The likelihood ratio type statistic is computed simply as the difference between the standard GMM tests of overidentifying restrictions in the restricted and unrestr...Expand abstract
