No 74:
Improving Fractional Integration Tests With Bootstrap Distributions

Michael K. Andersson () and Mikael P. Gredenhoff

Abstract: Asymptotic tests for fractional integration are usually badly sized in small samples, even for normally distributed processes. Furthermore, tests that are well-sized under normality may be severely distorted by non-normalities and ARCH errors. This paper demonstrates how the bootstrap can be implemented to correct for such size distortions.
