Description

Compute several statistical performance measures frequently used in the econometric literature to evaluate covariance/correlation matrix estimates. See, Laurent et al. (2012), Amendola et al. (2015), Becker et al. (2015) and Engle et al. (2016).

If measure="ALL" compute the Asymmetric loss function, Frobenius distance, Euclidean distance, Eigenvalue loss function, Mean Absolute Error, Mean Square Error, Stein loss function and Elw loss function.

Usage

1
StatPerMeas(S, H, measure , b)

Arguments

S

Proxy for the conditional covariance/correlation matrix

H

Estimate of the conditional covariance/correlation matrix.

measure

"Le": Euclidean distance, "MSE": Mean Square Error, "MAE": Mean Absolute Error, "Lf": Frobenius distance, "Ls": Stein loss function, "Asymm": Asymmetric loss functions, "Leig": Eigenvalue loss function, "Lelw": Elw loss function, "ALL": All Statistical Performance Measures.

b

Degree of homogeneity. By default b=3 (Used in the Frobenius distance)
