property IVResults.basmann : InvalidTestStatistic | WaldTestStatistic

Basmann’s test of overidentifying restrictions


Object containing test statistic, p-value, distribution and null

Return type:



Requires more instruments than endogenous variables

Tests is a small-sample version of Sargan’s test that has the same distribution.

\[s (n - n_{instr}) / (n - s) \sim \chi^2_{v}\]

where \(n_{instr}\) is the number of instruments, \(n_{exog}\) is the number of exogenous regressors and \(n_{endog}\) is the number of endogenous regressors. The degree of freedom is the difference between the number of instruments and the number of endogenous regressors.

\[v = n_{instr} - n_{exog}\]
