Center for Policy Research [Maxwell School, Syracuse University] Working Paper: “Test of Hypotheses in a Time Trend Panel Data Model with Serially Correlated Error Component Disturbances,” Badi H. Baltagi, Chihwa Kao, and Long Liu (Working Paper No. 170, July 2014, .pdf format, 40p.).


This paper studies test of hypotheses for the slope parameter in a linear time trend panel data model with serially correlated error component disturbances. We propose a test statistic that uses a bias corrected estimator of the serial correlation parameter. The proposed test statistic which is based on the corresponding fixed effects feasible generalized least squares (FE-FGLS) estimator of the slope parameter has the standard normal limiting distribution which is valid whether the remainder error is I(0) or I(1). This performs well in Monte Carlo experiments and is recommended.
