Abstract [en]

The negative binomial (NB) regression model is very popular in applied research when analyzing count data. The commonly used maximum likelihood (ML) estimator is very sensitive to highly intercorrelated explanatory variables. Therefore, a NB ridge regression estimator (NBRR) is proposed as a robust option of estimating the parameters of the NB model in the presence of multicollinearity. To investigate the performance of the NBRR and the traditional ML approach the mean squared error (MSE) is calculated using Monte Carlo simulations. The simulated result indicated that some of the proposed NBRR methods should always be preferred to the ML method.

Abstract [en]

The standard statistical method for analyzing count data is the Poisson regression model, which is usually estimated using maximum likelihood (ML) method. The ML method is very sensitive to multicollinearity. Therefore, we present a new Poisson ridge regression estimator (PRR) as a remedy to the problem of instability of the traditional ML method. To investigate the performance of the PRR and the traditional ML approaches for estimating the parameters of the Poisson regression model, we calculate the mean squared error (MSE) using Monte Carlo simulations. The result from the simulation study shows that the PRR method outperforms the traditional ML estimator in all of the different situations evaluated in this paper.

3. A Wavelet-Based Approach of Testing for Granger Causality in the Presence of GARCH Effects

2012 (English)In: Communications in Statistics - Theory and Methods, ISSN 0361-0926, E-ISSN 1532-415X, Vol. 41, no 4, 717-728 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

The size and power of the most commonly used tests and a new wavelet-based approach of testing for Granger causality is evaluated in this paper by means of a Monte Carlo study in which the error term follows a generalized autoregressive conditional heteroscedasticity consistent (GARCH) process. In the simulation study it is shown that the commonly used causality tests tends to over-reject the true null hypothesis in the presence of GARCH errors and that the new wavelet-based approach improves the size properties of the Granger causality test for all of the different situations evaluated.

2009 (English)In: Communications in statistics. Simulation and computation, ISSN 0361-0918, E-ISSN 1532-4141, Vol. 38, no 10, 2039-2059 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

In this article, we investigate the effect of spillover (i.e., causality in variance) on the reliability of Granger causality test based on ordinary least square estimates. We studied eight different versions of the test both, with and without Whites heteroskedasticity consistent covariance matrix (HCCME). The properties of the tests are investigated by means of a Monte Carlo experiment where 21 different data generating processes (DGP) are used and a number of factors that might affect the test are varied. The result shows that the best choice to test for Granger causality under the presence of spillover is the Lagrange Multiplier test with HCCME.
