Abstract

This paper proposes a straightforward, easy to implement approximate F-test which is useful for testing restrictions in multivariate regression models. We derive the asymptotics for our test statistic and investigate its finite sample properties through a series of Monte Carlo experiments. Both theory suggests and simulations confirm that our approach will result in strictly better inference than the leading alternative
