Dear Stata Users,

I am trying to implement a test for serial correlation in the
idiosyncratic errors in a fixed effects model.

I am following Wooldridge's (2002: 275) first test of this type.

I will follow his notation so that:

- u are the idiosyncratic errors of the FE model;
- ü are the time-demeaned errors
- û are the residuals of the time-demeaned variables regression

His description of the test is the following:

1) regress û on L1.û  for T and T-1 (the last two periods)

2)) use the regression coefficient of L1.û (beta) and its standard
error (sigma) to obtain a sample estimate of delta= Corr(ü, L1.ü)

3) test h0: delta= -1/(T-1), where the t-statistic is asymptotically normal.

I face two problems.

First, what is the algebraic expression relating Corr(ü, L1.ü) to beta
and sigma?

Second, how can I formulate it using the command testnl?

Thanks in advance for your help.
