Cointegration Test Including Multiple Breaks Using GAUSS

In this tutorial on Cointegration Test Including Multiple Breaks Using GAUSS, we will show usng GUASS how to estimate cointegration tests with multiple breaks. Abdulnasser Hatemi-J has written an excellent paper titled: Tests for cointegration with two unknown regime shifts with an application to financial market integration which describes the methodology of Cointegration Test Including Multiple Breaks and we have used his written code available here. The abstract of the paper is quoted here:

It is widely agreed in empirical studies that allowing for potential structural change in economic processes is an important issue. In existing literature, tests for cointegration between time series data allow for one regime shift. This paper extends three residual-based test statistics for cointegration to the cases that take into account two possible regime shifts. The timing of each shift is unknown a priori and it is determined endogenously. The distributions of the tests are non-standard. We generate new critical values via simulation methods. The size and power properties of these test statistics are evaluated through Monte Carlo simulations, which show the tests have small size distortions and very good power properties. The test methods introduced in this paper are applied to determine whether the financial markets in the US and the UK are integrated.

Cointegration Test Including Multiple Breaks Using GAUSS can be replicated using the following video tutorial or simply follow the steps:

Tests for Autocorrelated Errors

In ordinary least square regression model, we specify the equation as
y = b0 + b1 x1 + b2 x2 + b3 x3 + b4 x4 + ut
and we can test the assumption of autocorrelation or we can test whether the disturbances are autocorrelated.
To test the autocorrelation, we can follow the steps below:
(i) Estimate the regression model above using ordinary least square approach/OLS:
sysuse auto, clear
gen t=_n
tsset t
reg price rep78 trunk length
. reg price rep78 trunk length

(ii)  Now calculate the residuals from the above regression:
predict errors, res
(iii)  Run another regression by inserting lagged residuals or the lag values of error terms, (errors) as predicted from above regression model into a regression model of the residuals as a dependent variable. Our regression model will be estimated through the following regression code in Stata: reg errors rep78 trunk length l.errors. We can consider this regression as auxiliary regression. The results from this auxiliary regression is given below
. reg errors rep78 trunk length l.errors

(iv) Using the estimated results from auxiliary regression above, note the the R-squared value and multiply it by the number of included observations:
scalar N=_result(1)
scalar R2=_result(7)
scalar NR2= N*R2
scalar list N  R2  NR2
N =         63
R2 =  .24325986
NR2 =  15.325371

(v)  Now, the null hypothesis of BP test is that there is no autocorrelation, we can use the standard Chi-Square distribution to find the tabulated values of the Chi-Square to check if the null hypothesis of no autocorrelation needs to be rejected. According to theory, the Chi-Square statistic calculated using the NRSquare approach above, the test statistic NR2 converges asymptotically where degrees of freedom for the test is s which the number of lags of the residuals included in the auxiliary regression and we have included 1 lagged value of errors/residuals so degrees of freedom in this case is 1. We can use Stata conventional functions for distribution to determine the tabulated values at 5% level of significance using the following code:
scalar chi151=invchi2tail(1, .05)
scalar list chi151
chi15 =  3.8414598
We got from the above tutorial in tests for autocorrelation, NR2 = 15.325371 > 3.84 = Chi-Square (1, 5%). As the calculated value of Chi2 is greater than tabulated values of Chi2, so we reject the null hypothesis of no autocorrelation on the disturbances.

Unit Root Tests, Publication Style Tables in Stata

There is commonly a question on many forums as to how can one test unit root of several variables and export the results of all these tests into a single file in Word or Excel sheet. To demonstrate in this tutorials, we will use Unit Root Tests, Publication Style Tables in Stata.
To help these querries, I have written the following simplest do file which you can use after modifiying for the relevant places like file_paths and variables_names. The code will do the job to test the variable for unit root or stationarity and compile the results from all the individual tests into a single table and export it to your desired format like MS Word or MS Excel sheet for further use and modifications. The steps in this tutorial will help you extend this do file to include many other tests like summary statistics to be exported into the same files.

***Step 1. Load the data, I have used the example location folder and files. You can change the path to your desired detination of the file/folder where your data exists.
use "E:\Dropbox\data.dta", clear

***Step 2. Now create a temporary files using
tempname anees_uroot
tempfile unitroots

***Step 3. Then you need to write to the temporary files as to what should be the names of the headers of the table. Also you need to specify which file to use and what to add to the file as headers.
postfile `anees_uroot' str12 name dfuller_statistic dfuller_pvalue dfuller_lags perron_statistic pperron_rho pperron_pvalue pperron_lags using `unitroots'

***Step 4. Load the variables. You can add as many variables as you wish or that you would like to use in reports. Replace the var_i with your real variables here.
foreach var of varlist var_1 var_2 var_3 var_4 {

***Step 5. This section conducts the tests. I have added simple ADF and PP tests for unit root. Please note, you should make sure the tests stores the r() to be exported.
dfuller `var'
local dfuller_statistic = r(Zt)
dfuller `var'
local dfuller_pvalue = r(p)
dfuller `var'
local dfuller_lags = r(lags)
pperron `var'
local perron_statistic = r(Zt)
pperron `var'
local pperron_rho = r(Zrho)
pperron `var'
local pperron_pvalue = r(p)
pperron `var'
local pperron_lags = r(lags)

***Step 6. Write theresults into the temporary files and close the section code.
post `anees_uroot' ("`var'") (`dfuller_statistic') (`dfuller_pvalue') (`dfuller_lags') (`perron_statistic') (`pperron_rho') (`pperron_pvalue') (`pperron_lags')
}

***Step 7. Close the post file as started above. You can now see the produced results in a tabular format to be copied right from Stata output window or use the next line of code to export the stored results into Excel etc.
postclose `anees_uroot'
clear
use `unitroots'

***Step 8. Export the results to Excel and keep the the stored names for tests_values as variables headers. The first column named; Name will contain variable names.
export excel using "E:\Dropbox\Stata Unit Root Tests.xls", firstrow(variables) replace
***Step 9 Optional. Use the list command in Stata to see the results produced by above tutorial.
list

The full code should look like the following.
This tutorial was written for a online course in Time Series Econometrics. I have edited just the names of the variables from the output and codes. You can book your aneconomist.com and get your Stata code as neat and clean as it should be possible.

Econometric Models Selection

In this simple outline on the issue of commonly raised douts on how to select an economic model, I would like to sum the issue in this 300 words article. Econometric Models Selection is one key problem for all. The model selection is based on the type of data and type of variables. Here, we mention an order following which helps an econometric model strategy development for us. We assume to use Panel data to develop econometric model selection strategy. Initially, to determine the right set of models, the nature of data structure for the panel data follows like this: A. Check data structure. 1. if N>T, then follows B series of steps. 2. If T>N, then follow the steps in C series.

If we assume the panel data has N sufficiently greater than T, then simple panel data or instrumental/GMM models for panel data can be achieved using the following order. This helps in Econometric Models selection looking into the key steps of the econometric analysis of the given panel data.

For Case 1, follow these steps.
B1. The first stepOLS
B2. RE/FE
B3. Hausman
B4. Assumptions of RE or FE from B3.
B5. Endogeneity Tests
B6. Instrumental Regression
B7. GMM if seens dynamics/autocorrelation in B4.

If the data at hands is such that T is sufficiently larger than N, the panel time series structure will be evidenced and hence our econometric models selection strategy will follow the following procedures. The unit roots and cointegration is for panel time series data which are also sometimes considered as longer time panel data or longer panel data. In such cases, the time series properties in estimators are heavily observed and hence the steps to select an econometric models selection strategy will include these.
For Case 2, follow these steps
C1. Unit Root
C2. Cointegration
C3. VECM
