Extending the Hausman Test to Check for the presence of Outliers

Catherine Dehon (), Marjorie Gassner and Vincenzo Verardi

Working Papers ECARES from ULB -- Universite Libre de Bruxelles

Abstract: In this paper, we follow the same logic as in Hausman (1978) to create a testing procedure that checks for the presence of outliers by comparing a regression estimator that is robust to outliers (S-estimator), with another that is more e¢ cient but a¤ected by them. Some simulations are presented to illustrate the good behavior of the test for both its size and its power.
