Controlling the significance levels of prediction error tests for linear regression models

Leslie Godfrey and Chris Orme ()

Econometrics Journal, 2000, vol. 3, issue 1, 66-83

Abstract: This paper provides evidence on problems associated with using standard tests for predictive failure when the errors of a linear regression model are not normally distributed. The ability of a simple bootstrap procedure to give a useful degree of control over the significance levels is examined.
