Regression-based Hausman test

Calculates the regression-based Hausman test to be used to compare OLS to 2SLS estimates or 2SLS to 3SLS estimates. See e.g., Wooldridge2010;textualcSEM (pages 131 f.) for details.

Usage
testHausman(
 .object               = NULL,
 .eval_plan            = c("sequential", "multiprocess"),
 .handle_inadmissibles = c("drop", "ignore", "replace"),
 .R                    = 499,
 .resample_method      = c("bootstrap", "jackknife"),
 .seed                 = NULL
 )
Arguments
.object

An R object of class cSEMResults resulting from a call to csem().

.eval_plan

Character string. The evaluation plan to use. One of "sequential" or "multiprocess". In the latter case all available cores will be used. Defaults to "sequential".

.handle_inadmissibles

Character string. How should inadmissible results be treated? One of "drop", "ignore", or "replace". If "drop", all replications/resamples yielding an inadmissible result will be dropped (i.e. the number of results returned will potentially be less than .R). For "ignore" all results are returned even if all or some of the replications yielded inadmissible results (i.e. number of results returned is equal to .R). For "replace" resampling continues until there are exactly .R admissible solutions. Depending on the frequency of inadmissible solutions this may significantly increase computing time. Defaults to "drop".

.R

Integer. The number of bootstrap replications. Defaults to 499.

.resample_method

Character string. The resampling method to use. One of: "none", "bootstrap" or "jackknife". Defaults to "none".

.seed

Integer or NULL. The random seed to use. Defaults to NULL in which case an arbitrary seed is chosen. Note that the scope of the seed is limited to the body of the function it is used in. Hence, the global seed will not be altered!

Details

The function is somewhat experimental. Only use if you know what you are doing.

## Prepartion (values are from p. 15-16 of the paper)
Lambda <- t(kronecker(diag(6), c(0.7, 0.7, 0.7)))

## Create population indicator covariance matrix
Sigma <- t(Lambda) %*% Phi %*% Lambda
diag(Sigma) <- 1
dimnames(Sigma) <- list(paste0("x", rep(1:6, each = 3), 1:3),
                        paste0("x", rep(1:6, each = 3), 1:3))

## Generate data
dat <- MASS::mvrnorm(n = 500, mu = rep(0, 18), Sigma = Sigma, empirical = TRUE)
# empirical = TRUE to show that 2SLS is in fact able to recover the true population
# parameters.

## Model to estimate
model <- "
## Structural model (nonrecurisve)
eta5 ~ eta6 + eta1 + eta2
eta6 ~ eta5 + eta3 + eta4

## Measurement model
eta1 =~ x11 + x12 + x13

eta3 =~ x31 + x32 + x33
