Calculates Durbin's h-statistic for autoregressive models.

1 | ```
durbinH(model, ylag1var)
``` |

`model` |
The model being assessed |

`ylag1var` |
The variable in the model that represents the lag of the y-term |

Using the Durbin-Watson (DW) test for autoregressive models is inappropriate because the DW test itself tests for first order autocorrelation. This doesn't apply to an ECM model, for which the DW test is still valid, but the durbinH function in included here in case an autoregressive model has been built. If Durbin's h-statistic is greater than 1.96, it is likely that autocorrelation exists.

##Not run
#Build a simple AR1 model to predict performance of the Wilshire 5000 Index
data(Wilshire)
Wilshire$Wilshire5000Lag1 <- c(NA, Wilshire$Wilshire5000[1:(nrow(Wilshire)-1)])
Wilshire <- Wilshire[complete.cases(Wilshire),]
AR1model <- lm(Wilshire5000 ~ Wilshire5000Lag1, data=Wilshire)
#Check Durbin's h-statistic on AR1model
durbinH(AR1model, "Wilshire5000Lag1")
#The h-statistic is 4.23, which means there is likely autocorrelation in the data.
