Quasi-maximum likelihood and the kernel block bootstrap for nonlinear dynamic models

Paulo Parente and Richard J. Smith
Cemmap Working Paper CWP60/19

This paper applies a novel bootstrap method, the kernel block bootstrap, to quasi-maximum likelihood estimation of dynamic models with stationary strong mixing data. The method rst kernel weights the components comprising the quasi-log likelihood function in an appropriate way and then samples the resultant transformed components using the standard \m out of n" bootstrap. We investigate the rst order asymptotic properties of the kernel block bootstrap method for quasi-maximum likelihood demonstrating, in particular, its consistency and the rst-order asymptotic validity of the bootstrap approximation to the distribution of the quasi-maximum likelihood estimator. A set of simulation experiments for the mean regression model illustrates the efficacy of the kernel block bootstrap for quasi-maximum likelihood estimation.
