ARDL model as a remedy for spurious regression: problems, performance and prospectus

It is concluded that it is the missing variable (lag values) that are the major cause of spurious regression therefore an alternative way to look at the problem of spurious regressions takes us back to theMissing variable which further leads to ARDL Model.

Revisiting Simpson's Paradox: a statistical misspecification perspective

The primary objective of this paper is to revisit Simpson's paradox using a statistical misspecification perspective. It is argued that the reversal of statistical associations is sometimes spurious,

Forecasting the US Unemployment Rate with Job Openings Index

Predicting the unemployment rate is one of the most important applications for economists and policymakers (Golan, 2002). In this thesis, the focus is on the seasonally adjusted U.S. national

Una prueba simple para regresiones espurias

It has been found that the t-statistic for testing the null of no relationship between two independent variables diverges asymptotically under a wide variety of nonstationary data generating

The Analysis of Nonstationary Time Series Using Regression, Correlation and Cointegration

This work analyzes some data on annual mean temperature and sea level, bylying the cointegrated vector autoregressive model, which explicitly takes into account the nonstationarity of the variables.

Cliometrics and Time Series Econometrics: Some Theory and Applications

The paper discusses a range of modern time series methods that have become popular in the past 20 years and considers their usefulness for cliometrics research both in theory and via a range of

Domain generalization, invariance and the Time Robust Forest

This work develops Time Robust Forests (TRF), a new algorithm for inducing decision trees with an inductive bias towards learning time-invariant rules, and shows that the approach can improve long-term generalization, thus offering an interesting alternative for dynamical classification problems.

Determination of Dynamic Brain Connectivity via Spectral Analysis

It is shown that FC is dynamic even when the brain structure and effective connectivity are fixed, and that the observed patterns of FC are dominated by relatively few eigenmodes, suggesting that for many purposes the intrinsic limitations of covariance-based FC instead favor the alternative of tracking eigenmode coefficients vs. time, which provide a compact representation that is directly related to biophysical brain dynamics.

Spurious Regressions and Panel IV Estimation: Revisiting the Causes of Conflict

Development and humanitarian agencies have rapidly embraced the concept of resilience since the 2008 global financial and food price crises. We report the results of a formal scoping review of the

Granger revisited: t values and the empirical OLS bias with stationary and non-stationary time series using Monte Carlo simulations

La realización de un análisis estadístico confiable se fundamenta en el reconocimiento de las características estadísticas de las series de tiempo en juego y de los supuestos probabilísticos
