Abstract: We provide additional simulation results and theoretical derivations. Section I provides the simulation results for the performance of the alternative selection criteria for estimating the number of local factors. Section II provides the proofs for Lemmas in Section 4.1.1. Section III describes the detailed estimation algorithms of alternative approaches for selecting the number of global factors. Section IV presents the additional empirical results, showing that the popular systematic risk factors, smb and hml, proposed by Fama and French (1993), do not explain the within and the between correlations. Section V investigates the nite sample performance of the existing model selection criteria that ignore the multilevel structure and demonstrate that the existing selection criteria will produce unreliable inference in nite samples.
