Asymptotic properties of the maximum likelihood estimator of random effects models with serial correlation
() and Sune Karlsson
Abstract: This paper considers the large sample behavior of the
maximum likelihood estimator of random effects models with serial
correlation in the form of AR(1) for the idiosyncratic or time-specific
error component. Consistent estimation and asymptotic normality as N and/or
T grows large is established for a comprehensive specification which nests
these models as well as all commonly used random effects models. When only
N or T grows large only a subset of the parameters are consistent and
asymptotic normality is established for the consistent subsets.
