st: estat abond when error is MA(1) |

Apologies for one error in my question! The sentence about the p-values should have read instead: "I should expect to see p-values for both the 1st and 2nd order of the -estat abond-test showing *siginifant* test stats, i.e. p-values *lower* than say 0.10." Sorry for the confusion! Below I am re-posting, this time with the corrected sentence: > Dear Statalist, > > I wanted to confirm if my my derivation and understanding > is correct: Suppose we assume that in a dynamic model the > idiosyncratic error is not iid, but rather MA(1). In that > case, the differenced error would be MA(2). So both the > first- and the second-order serial correlation of the > *differenced* error term would be non-zero, whereas the > third- and higher-order correlations would be zero.
