Adaptive Estimation of Heteroscedastic Money Demand Model of Pakistan

Muhammad Aslam, G. R. Pasha

Abstract


For the problem of estimation of Money demand model of Pakistan, money supply (M1) shows heteroscedasticity of the unknown form. For estimation of such model we compare two adaptive estimators with ordinary least squares estimator and show the attractive performance of the adaptive estimators, namely, nonparametric kernel estimator and nearest neighbour regression estimator. These comparisons are made on the basis standard errors of the estimated coefficients, standard error of regression, Akaike Information Criteria (AIC) value, and the Durban-Watson statistic for autocorrelation. We further show that nearest neighbour regression estimator performs better when comparing with the other nonparametric kernel estimator.
