Part 14: Generalized Regression Unknown p The problem (of course), is unknown. For now, we will consider two methods of estimation: n Two step, or feasible estimation. Estimate first, then do GLS. Emphasize - same logic as White and Newey-West. We don’t need to estimate . We need to find a matrix that behaves the same as (1/n) X-1X . n Properties of the feasible GLS estimator p Maximum likelihood estimation of , 2, and all at the same time. n Joint estimation of all parameters. Fairly rare. Some generalities… n We will examine two applications: Harvey’s model of heteroscedasticity and Beach-MacKinnon on the first order autocorrelation model ™  29/44
Part 14: Generalized Regression Specification p must be specified first. p A full unrestricted contains n(n+1)/2 - 1 parameters. (Why minus 1? Remember, tr( ) = n, so one element is determined.) p is generally specified in terms of a few parameters. Thus, = ( ) for some small parameter vector . It becomes a question of estimating . p Examples: ™  30/44

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
