QLL: Stata module to implement Elliott-Müller efficient test for general persistent time variation in regression coefficients
Christopher F Baum
qll performs the qLL efficient test for general persistence in time variation in regression coefficients proposed by Elliott and Müller (Rev. Ec. Stud., 2006). The test contrasts a stable regression model y = X beta + Z gamma + epsilon from the unstable alternative y = X beta(t) + Z gamma + epsilon. This very general specification nests many of the 'structural break' and 'time varying parameter' models in the literature, allowing for almost any pattern of variation in the coefficients of the X variables, with good power and size even in a heteroskedastic context. Ben Jann's -moremata- package from this archive must be installed.
