In perform, using GMD as a degree of variability is justified every time the investigator isn't really able to impose, with out wondering, the handy international of normality.

We have seen that artificial regressions can be useful for minimizing criterion functions, computing one-step estimates, calculating covariance matrix estimates, and computing test statistics. The last of these is probably the most common application. There is a close connection between the artificial regression for a given model and the asymptotic theory for that model. Therefore, as we saw in Section 6, artificial regressions can also be very useful for obtaining theoretical results. Most of the artificial regressions we have discussed are quite well known.

Either the regressand and regressors can be divided by a suitable consistent estimate of σ, or else all test statistics can be computed as ratios, in F or nR2 form, as appropriate. 35) is provided by the class of regression models, linear or nonlinear, estimated with instrumental variables (IV). 4) related to the sum of squared residuals, but rather Q(β) ≡ 1 2 (y − x(β))ׅPW (y − x(β)), where W is an n × l matrix of instrumental variables. 32), with β instead of θ, and with f(β) = y − x(β). In addition, J(β) = X(β), where X(β) is defined, exactly as for the GNR, to have the tith element ∂xt/∂βi(β).

G. MACKINNON AN ARTIFICIAL REGRESSION FOR GMM ESTIMATION Another useful artificial regression, much less well known than the OPG regression, is available for a class of models estimated by the generalized method of moments (GMM). Many such models can be formulated in terms of functions ft(θ) of the model parameters and the data, such that, when they are evaluated at the true θ, their expectations conditional on corresponding information sets, Ωt, vanish. The Ωt usually contain all information available prior to the time of observation t, and so, as with the GNR and the OPG regression, lags of dependent variables are allowed.
