Score tests for zero covariances in recursive linear models for grouped or censored data.
Journal of Econometrics
291 - 305.
The score test statistic for testing whether an error covariance is zero is derived for a normal linear recursive model for fully observed, censored or grouped data. The test, which is obtained by regarding non-zero error covariances as arising from correlated random parameter variation, is shown to be closely related to the Information Matrix test. It turns out that the statistic, which is asymptotically N[0,1] under the null, examines the sample covariance of appropriately defined residuals. © 1985.
