''The tests for the level moment conditions: GMM estimation in a linear dynamic panel data model''
( 2012, Vol. 32 No.1 )
This paper compares the power of alternative tests for the level moment conditions in GMM estimation of a linear dynamic panel data model. The test statistic calculated conventionally can take on a negative value in finite samples even though it cannot be asymptotically. A straightforward modification makes the test statistic nonnegative. Monte Carlo simulations show that the test can gain power from the modification.
