Gradient test

Share:

Description

gt.bpm can be used to test the hypothesis of absence of endogeneity, correlated model equations/errors or non-random sample selection in binary bivariate probit models.

Usage

1
gt.bpm(x)

Arguments

x

A fitted SemiParBIVProbit object as produced by SemiParBIVProbit().

Details

The gradient test was first proposed by Terrell (2002) and it is based on classic likelihood theory. See Marra et al. (in press) for full details.

Value

It returns a numeric p-value corresponding to the null hypothesis that the correlation, θ, is equal to 0.

WARNINGS

This test's implementation is only valid for bivariate binary probit models with normal errors.
