LinearIVGMM.fititer(start, maxiter=2, start_invweights=None, weights_method='cov', wargs=(), optim_method='bfgs', optim_args=None)

iterative estimation with updating of optimal weighting matrix

stopping criteria are maxiter or change in parameter estimate less than self.epsilon_iter, with default 1e-6.

  • start (array) – starting value for parameters
  • maxiter (int) – maximum number of iterations
  • start_weights (array (nmoms, nmoms)) – initial weighting matrix; if None, then the identity matrix is used
  • weights_method ({'cov', ..}) – method to use to estimate the optimal weighting matrix, see calc_weightmatrix for details

  • params (array) – estimated parameters
  • weights (array) – optimal weighting matrix calculated with final parameter estimates
