1 1 MODELS WITH A LAGGED DEPENDENT VARIABLE A widely-used solution to the problem of including dynamics in a model while mitigating the problem of multicollinearity is to employ an autoregressive distributed lag model, often written ADL(p, q). ADL(p, q)

2 2 The ‘autoregressive’ part of the name refers to the fact that lagged values of the dependent variable are included on the right side as explanatory variables. MODELS WITH A LAGGED DEPENDENT VARIABLE ADL(p, q) ADL = autoregressive distributed lag 'autoregressive' because Y t depends on previous values of Y.

3 3 p is the maximum number of lags of the dependent variable used in this way. q is the maximum lag of the X variable, or variables if there are several. MODELS WITH A LAGGED DEPENDENT VARIABLE ADL(p, q) ADL = autoregressive distributed lag 'autoregressive' because Y t depends on previous values of Y. p = maximum number of lags of the dependent variable q = maximum number of lags of the X variable(s)

4 4 The ADL model is particularly appealing when the dependent variable exhibits a high degree of dependence because then, as a matter of common sense, its value in one observation is likely to be influenced by its value in the previous one. MODELS WITH A LAGGED DEPENDENT VARIABLE ADL(p, q) ADL = autoregressive distributed lag 'autoregressive' because Y t depends on previous values of Y. p = maximum number of lags of the dependent variable q = maximum number of lags of the X variable(s)

5 5 It is econometrically attractive because it can accommodate a broad range of dynamic patterns with relatively few lag terms and parameters. (It is parsimonious, to use the technical term.) MODELS WITH A LAGGED DEPENDENT VARIABLE ADL(p, q) ADL = autoregressive distributed lag 'autoregressive' because Y t depends on previous values of Y. p = maximum number of lags of the dependent variable q = maximum number of lags of the X variable(s)

6 6 This is likely to reduce (but obviously, not eliminate) the problem of multicollinearity. MODELS WITH A LAGGED DEPENDENT VARIABLE ADL(p, q) ADL = autoregressive distributed lag 'autoregressive' because Y t depends on previous values of Y. p = maximum number of lags of the dependent variable q = maximum number of lags of the X variable(s)

7 7 We will start with the simplest model of all, the ADL(1,0) model where the only lagged variable is the lagged dependent variable. MODELS WITH A LAGGED DEPENDENT VARIABLE ADL(1, 0) ADL = autoregressive distributed lag 'autoregressive' because Y t depends on previous values of Y. p = 1 in this specification q = 0

8 8 Given the continuity of many time series processes, Y t–1, the value of a time series at time t – 1, is often the most important determinant of its value Y t at time t. and it makes sense to include it explicitly in the model as an explanatory variable. MODELS WITH A LAGGED DEPENDENT VARIABLE ADL = autoregressive distributed lag 'autoregressive' because Y t depends on previous values of Y. p = 1 in this specification q = 0 ADL(1, 0)

9 9 We will begin by investigating the dynamics implicit in the model graphically. We will suppose, for convenience, that  2 is positive and that X increases with time, and we will neglect the effect of the disturbance term. MODELS WITH A LAGGED DEPENDENT VARIABLE  1  +  3 Y t+3 XtXt X t+1 X t+3 X t+4 X Y X t+2  1  +  3 Y t+2  1  +  3 Y t+1  1  +  3 Y t  1  +  3 Y t–1 short-run relationship at time t

10 10 We shall suppose throughout this section that │  3 │ < 1. This is a stability condition for the process. We will discuss the consequences of violations of this condition in Chapter 13. We will in fact assume 0 <  3 < 1 because Y t and Y t–1 are typically positively correlated. MODELS WITH A LAGGED DEPENDENT VARIABLE  1  +  3 Y t+3 XtXt X t+1 X t+3 X t+4 X Y X t+2  1  +  3 Y t+2  1  +  3 Y t+1  1  +  3 Y t  1  +  3 Y t–1 short-run relationship at time t

11 11 At time t, Y t is given by the equation at the top. It is represented by the point corresponding to X t on the lowest of the five lines in the figure. Y t–1 has already been determined at time t, so the term  3 Y t–1 is fixed. MODELS WITH A LAGGED DEPENDENT VARIABLE  1  +  3 Y t+3 XtXt X t+1 X t+3 X t+4 X Y X t+2  1  +  3 Y t+2  1  +  3 Y t+1  1  +  3 Y t  1  +  3 Y t–1 short-run relationship at time t

12 12 The equation thus may be viewed as giving the short-run relationship between Y t and X t for period t. (  1 +  3 Y t–1 ) is effectively the intercept and  2, the slope coefficient, gives the short- run effect of X on Y. MODELS WITH A LAGGED DEPENDENT VARIABLE  1  +  3 Y t+3 XtXt X t+1 X t+3 X t+4 X Y X t+2  1  +  3 Y t+2  1  +  3 Y t+1  1  +  3 Y t  1  +  3 Y t–1 short-run relationship at time t

13 13 When we come to time t + 1, Y t+1 is given by the second equation and the effective intercept is now (  1 +  3 Y t ). Since X is increasing, Y is increasing, so the intercept is larger than that for Y t and the short-run relationship has shifted upwards. The slope is unchanged,  2. MODELS WITH A LAGGED DEPENDENT VARIABLE  1  +  3 Y t+3 XtXt X t+1 X t+3 X t+4 X Y X t+2  1  +  3 Y t+2  1  +  3 Y t+1  1  +  3 Y t  1  +  3 Y t–1 short-run relationship at time t

14 14 Thus two factors are responsible for the growth of Y over time: the direct effect of the increase in X, and the gradual upward shift of the short-run relationship. The figure shows the outcomes for time t as far as time t + 4. MODELS WITH A LAGGED DEPENDENT VARIABLE  1  +  3 Y t+3 XtXt X t+1 X t+3 X t+4 X Y X t+2  1  +  3 Y t+2  1  +  3 Y t+1  1  +  3 Y t  1  +  3 Y t–1 short-run relationship at time t

15 15 You can see that the actual relationship between Y and X, traced out by the markers representing the observations, is steeper than the short-run relationship for each time period. MODELS WITH A LAGGED DEPENDENT VARIABLE  1  +  3 Y t+3 XtXt X t+1 X t+3 X t+4 X Y X t+2  1  +  3 Y t+2  1  +  3 Y t+1  1  +  3 Y t  1  +  3 Y t–1 short-run relationship at time t

16 16 We will determine the long-run relationship between Y and X by performing a comparative statics analysis described in the previous slideshow. MODELS WITH A LAGGED DEPENDENT VARIABLE  1  +  3 Y t+3 XtXt X t+1 X t+3 X t+4 X Y X t+2  1  +  3 Y t+2  1  +  3 Y t+1  1  +  3 Y t  1  +  3 Y t–1 short-run relationship at time t

17 17 Denoting equilibrium Y and X by Y and X, Y t = Y t–1 = Y and X t = X in equilibrium. Hence, ignoring the transient effect of the disturbance term, the equilibrium relationship is as shown above.  1  +  3 Y t+3 XtXt X t+1 X t+3 X t+4 X Y X t+2  1  +  3 Y t+2  1  +  3 Y t+1  1  +  3 Y t  1  +  3 Y t–1 short-run relationship at time t MODELS WITH A LAGGED DEPENDENT VARIABLE

18 18 Re-arranging, one has the equilibrium value of Y in terms of the equilibrium value of X. The factor  2 / (1 –  3 ) gives the effect of a one-unit change in equilibrium X on equilibrium Y. We will describe this as the long-run effect. MODELS WITH A LAGGED DEPENDENT VARIABLE long-run effect of X on Y

19 19 In the present context, with 0 <  3 < 1, it will be greater than  2 because 1 –  3 will also lie between 0 and 1. MODELS WITH A LAGGED DEPENDENT VARIABLE long-run effect of X on Y if

20 20 Another way of exploring the dynamics is to look at the implicit relationship between Y t and current and lagged values of X. If the relationship is true for time period t, it is also true for time period t – 1. MODELS WITH A LAGGED DEPENDENT VARIABLE

21 21 We substitute for Y t–1 in the first equation. MODELS WITH A LAGGED DEPENDENT VARIABLE

22 22 Continuing to lag and substitute, one obtains the equation shown. MODELS WITH A LAGGED DEPENDENT VARIABLE

23 23 Hence Y t can be viewed as a linear combination of current and lagged values of X with a lag distribution that consists of geometrically declining weights:  2,  2  3,  2  3 2,... MODELS WITH A LAGGED DEPENDENT VARIABLE

24 24 We have thus found a way of allowing lagged values of X to influence Y without introducing them into the model explicitly and giving rise to multicollinearity. MODELS WITH A LAGGED DEPENDENT VARIABLE

25 25 One should, however, note that this particular pattern of weights, known as a Koyck lag distribution, embodies the assumption that more recent values of X have more influence than older ones, and that the rate of decline in the weights is constant. MODELS WITH A LAGGED DEPENDENT VARIABLE Koyck lag distribution: geometrically declining weights

26 26 We will see in due course that we can relax both of these constraints. MODELS WITH A LAGGED DEPENDENT VARIABLE

27 27 From the last equation it can be seen that, at time t, with X t–1, X t–2, etc already determined, the only influence of X on Y is via X t. For this reason, again, we describe  2 as the short-run effect. MODELS WITH A LAGGED DEPENDENT VARIABLE short-run effect of X on Y

28 28 This representation of the model also yields the same long-run effect, as before. The proof is left as an exercise. MODELS WITH A LAGGED DEPENDENT VARIABLE
