Generalized Empirical Likelihood-Based Focused Information Criterion and Model Averaging

Naoya Sueishi

Econometrics, 2013, vol. 1, issue 2, 1-16

Abstract: This paper develops model selection and averaging methods for moment restriction models. We first propose a focused information criterion based on the generalized empirical likelihood estimator. We address the issue of selecting an optimal model, rather than a correct model, for estimating a specific parameter of interest. Then, this study investigates a generalized empirical likelihood-based model averaging estimator that minimizes the asymptotic mean squared error. A simulation study suggests that our averaging estimator can be a useful alternative to existing post-selection estimators.
