In this paper, it will be shown that any conditional moment test of functional form of nonlinear regression models can be converted into a chi-square test that is consistent against all deviations from the null hypothesis that the model represents the conditional expectation of the dependent variable relative to the vector of regressors.

Integrated Conditional Moment Testing of Conditional Heteroskedasticity Models
In this paper we propose a consistent Integrated Conditional Moment (ICM) test of the functional form of a conditional heteroskedasticity model, for example a GARCH specification, which is
Integrated Conditional Moment testing of quantile regression models
Abstract. In this paper we propose a consistent test of the linearity of quantile regression models, similar to the Integrated Conditional Moment (ICM) test of Bierens (1982) and Bierens and
Consistent GMM Residuals-Based Tests of Functional Form
This paper presents a consistent Generalized Method of Moments (GMM) residuals-based test of functional form for time series models. By relating two moments we deliver a vector moment condition in
Consistent Tests of Conditional Moment Restrictions
We propose two classes of consistent tests in parametric econometric models defined through multiple conditional moment restrictions. The first type of tests relies on nonparametric estimation, while
A Conditional Goodness-of-Fit Test for Time Series
This paper proposes a uni ed approach for consistent testing of linear restrictions on the conditional distribution function of a time series. A wide variety of interesting hypotheses in economics
A Conditional Kolmogorov Test
This paper introduces a conditional Kolmogorov test of model specification for parametric models with covariates (regressors). The test is an extension of the Kolmogorov test of goodness-of-fit for
Consistent Conditional Moment Tests of Functional Form
We present asymptotic power-one tests of regression model functional form for heavy tailed time series. Under the null hypothesis of correct speci…cation the model errors must have a …nite mean, and
Nonparametric Bootstrap Specification Testing in Econometric Models
We consider three nonparametric tests for functional form, varying parameters, and omitted variables in regression models both of time series data and of cross-sectional data. The Þrst test is to


Consistent model specification tests
A consistent Hausman-type model specification test
A modification of White's (1981) version of Hausman's (1978) model specification test such that the test has asymptotic power 1 against any deviation from the null hypothesis that the model is correctly specified is proposed.
Tests of specification in econometrics
This survey of recent developments in testing for misspecification of econometric models reviews procedures based on a method due to Hausman. Particular attention is given to alternative forms of the
Armax model specification testing, with an application to unemployment in the Netherlands
Maximum Likelihood Estimation of Misspecified Models
This paper examines the consequences and detection of model misspecification when using maximum likelihood techniques for estimation and inference. The quasi-maximum likelihood estimator (QMLE)

In this paper, it will be shown that if we condition a k-variate rational-valued time series process on its entire past, it is possible to capture all relevant information on the past of the process
The Fourier Flexible Form
One way to interpret the recent work in flexible functional forms is to see it as the use of richer parametric families of models in an attempt to reduce these two sorts of statistical biases--estimator bias and excess rejection probability.
Consequences and Detection of Misspecified Nonlinear Regression Models
Abstract Under general conditions given here, the least squares estimator for the parameters of a misspecified nonlinear model converge strongly to the parameters of a (weighted) least squares
