statsmodels.sandbox.regression.gmm.NonlinearIVGMM.calc_weightmatrix¶

NonlinearIVGMM.calc_weightmatrix(moms, weights_method='cov', wargs=(), params=None)

calculate omega or the weighting matrix

Parameters
momsndarray

moment conditions (nobs x nmoms) for all observations evaluated at a parameter value

weights_methodstr ‘cov’

If method=’cov’ is cov then the matrix is calculated as simple covariance of the moment conditions. see fit method for available aoptions for the weight and covariance matrix

wargs

parameters that are required by some kernel methods to estimate the long-run covariance. Not used yet.

Returns
warray (nmoms, nmoms)

estimate for the weighting matrix or covariance of the moment condition

Notes

currently a constant cutoff window is used TODO: implement long-run cov estimators, kernel-based
