Exponent of Cross-sectional Dependence: Estimation and Inference

No 6318, IZA Discussion Papers from Institute of Labor Economics (IZA)

Abstract: An important issue in the analysis of cross-sectional dependence which has received renewed interest in the past few years is the need for a better understanding of the extent and nature of such cross dependencies. In this paper we focus on measures of cross-sectional dependence and how such measures are related to the behaviour of the aggregates defined as cross-sectional averages. We endeavour to determine the rate at which the cross-sectional weighted average of a set of variables appropriately demeaned, tends to zero. One parameterisation sets this to be O(N^2?-2), for 1/2
