MODELS WITH A LAGGED DEPENDENT VARIABLE
ADL(p, q) 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). 1

MODELS WITH A LAGGED DEPENDENT VARIABLE
ADL(p, q) ADL = autoregressive distributed lag 'autoregressive' because Yt depends on previous values of Y. 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. 2

MODELS WITH A LAGGED DEPENDENT VARIABLE
ADL(p, q) ADL = autoregressive distributed lag 'autoregressive' because Yt 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) 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. 3

MODELS WITH A LAGGED DEPENDENT VARIABLE
ADL(p, q) ADL = autoregressive distributed lag 'autoregressive' because Yt 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) 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. 4

MODELS WITH A LAGGED DEPENDENT VARIABLE
ADL(p, q) ADL = autoregressive distributed lag 'autoregressive' because Yt 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) 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.) 5

MODELS WITH A LAGGED DEPENDENT VARIABLE
ADL(p, q) ADL = autoregressive distributed lag 'autoregressive' because Yt 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) This is likely to reduce (but obviously, not eliminate) the problem of multicollinearity. 6

MODELS WITH A LAGGED DEPENDENT VARIABLE
ADL(1, 0) ADL = autoregressive distributed lag 'autoregressive' because Yt depends on previous values of Y. p = 1 in this specification q = 0 We will start with the simplest model of all, the ADL(1,0) model where the only lagged variable is the lagged dependent variable. 7

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

b1 + b3Yt+3 Xt Xt+1 Xt+3 Xt+4 X Y Xt+2 b1 + b3Yt+2 b1 + b3Yt+1 b1 + b3Yt b1 + b3Yt–1 short-run relationship at time t We will begin by investigating the dynamics implicit in the model graphically. We will suppose, for convenience, that b2 is positive and that X increases with time, and we will neglect the effect of the disturbance term. 9

MODELS WITH A LAGGED DEPENDENT VARIABLE
b1 + b3Yt+3 Xt Xt+1 Xt+3 Xt+4 X Y Xt+2 b1 + b3Yt+2 b1 + b3Yt+1 b1 + b3Yt b1 + b3Yt–1 short-run relationship at time t We shall suppose throughout this section that │b3│ < 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 < b3 < 1 because Yt and Yt–1 are typically positively correlated. 10

MODELS WITH A LAGGED DEPENDENT VARIABLE
b1 + b3Yt+3 Xt Xt+1 Xt+3 Xt+4 X Y Xt+2 b1 + b3Yt+2 b1 + b3Yt+1 b1 + b3Yt b1 + b3Yt–1 short-run relationship at time t At time t, Yt is given by the equation at the top. It is represented by the point corresponding to Xt on the lowest of the five lines in the figure. Yt–1 has already been determined at time t, so the term b3Yt–1 is fixed. 11

b1 + b3Yt+3 Xt Xt+1 Xt+3 Xt+4 X Y Xt+2 b1 + b3Yt+2 b1 + b3Yt+1 b1 + b3Yt b1 + b3Yt–1 short-run relationship at time t The equation thus may be viewed as giving the short-run relationship between Yt and Xt for period t. (b1 + b3Yt–1) is effectively the intercept and b2, the slope coefficient, gives the short-run effect of X on Y. 12

MODELS WITH A LAGGED DEPENDENT VARIABLE
b1 + b3Yt+3 Xt Xt+1 Xt+3 Xt+4 X Y Xt+2 b1 + b3Yt+2 b1 + b3Yt+1 b1 + b3Yt b1 + b3Yt–1 short-run relationship at time t When we come to time t + 1, Yt+1 is given by the second equation and the effective intercept is now (b1 + b3Yt). Since X is increasing, Y is increasing, so the intercept is larger than that for Yt and the short-run relationship has shifted upwards. The slope is unchanged, b2. 13

MODELS WITH A LAGGED DEPENDENT VARIABLE
b1 + b3Yt+3 Xt Xt+1 Xt+3 Xt+4 X Y Xt+2 b1 + b3Yt+2 b1 + b3Yt+1 b1 + b3Yt b1 + b3Yt–1 short-run relationship at time t 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. 14

b1 + b3Yt+3 Xt Xt+1 Xt+3 Xt+4 X Y Xt+2 b1 + b3Yt+2 b1 + b3Yt+1 b1 + b3Yt b1 + b3Yt–1 short-run relationship at time t 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. 15

MODELS WITH A LAGGED DEPENDENT VARIABLE
b1 + b3Yt+3 Xt Xt+1 Xt+3 Xt+4 X Y Xt+2 b1 + b3Yt+2 b1 + b3Yt+1 b1 + b3Yt b1 + b3Yt–1 short-run relationship at time t We will determine the long-run relationship between Y and X by performing a comparative statics analysis described in the previous slideshow. 16

b1 + b3Yt+3 Xt Xt+1 Xt+3 Xt+4 X Y Xt+2 b1 + b3Yt+2 b1 + b3Yt+1 b1 + b3Yt b1 + b3Yt–1 short-run relationship at time t Denoting equilibrium Y and X by Y and X, Yt = Yt–1 = Y and Xt = X in equilibrium. Hence, ignoring the transient effect of the disturbance term, the equilibrium relationship is as shown above. 17

MODELS WITH A LAGGED DEPENDENT VARIABLE
long-run effect of X on Y Re-arranging, one has the equilibrium value of Y in terms of the equilibrium value of X. The factor b2 / (1 – b3) gives the effect of a one-unit change in equilibrium X on equilibrium Y. We will describe this as the long-run effect. 18

MODELS WITH A LAGGED DEPENDENT VARIABLE
long-run effect of X on Y if In the present context, with 0 < b3 < 1, it will be greater than b2 because 1 – b3 will also lie between 0 and 1. 19

MODELS WITH A LAGGED DEPENDENT VARIABLE
Another way of exploring the dynamics is to look at the implicit relationship between Yt 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. 20

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

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

MODELS WITH A LAGGED DEPENDENT VARIABLE
Hence Yt can be viewed as a linear combination of current and lagged values of X with a lag distribution that consists of geometrically declining weights: b2, b2b3, b2b32, ... 23

MODELS WITH A LAGGED DEPENDENT VARIABLE
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. 24

MODELS WITH A LAGGED DEPENDENT VARIABLE
Koyck lag distribution: geometrically declining weights 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. 25

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

MODELS WITH A LAGGED DEPENDENT VARIABLE
short-run effect of X on Y From the last equation it can be seen that, at time t, with Xt–1, Xt–2, etc already determined, the only influence of X on Y is via Xt. For this reason, again, we describe b2 as the short-run effect. 27

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