In this paper, we modify the multivariate nonlinear causality test to be panel nonlinear causality test and we recommend academics and practitioners to carry out cross linear and nonlinear causality tests in their study.Thereafter, we apply the tests we proposed and other existing related tests to examine the causal relationship between Economic Policy Uncertainty (EPU) and real housing returns in China and India using monthly data from January 1998 to December 2014. While both panellinear and nonlinear Granger causality tests suggest the existence of only linear and nonlinear unidirectional causality relationships from EPU shocks to real housing returns in both China and India, and bivariate linear Granger causality test suggest the existence of only linear unidirectional causality relationship from EPU shocks to real housing returns only in China, nonlinear bivariate Granger causality test conclude that the existence of nonlinear bidirectional causality relationships between EPU shocks and real housing returns in both China and India and cross bivariate linear and nonlinear Granger causality tests discover that there is only a linear causality relationship from Indian EPU shocks to Chinese housing returns. The results confirm the relevance of EPU data to better understand and predict the future behaviour of housing market returns in these countries.
