The effect of tapering on the semiparametric estimators for nonstationary long memory processes

In this paper, we study, by a Monte Carlo simulation, the effect of the order p of “Zhurbenko-Kolmogorov” taper on the asymptotic properties of semiparametric estimators. We show that p = [d + 1/2] + 1 gives the smallest variances and mean squared errors. These properties depend also on the truncation parameter m. Moreover, we study the impact of the short-memory components on the bias and variances of these estimators. We finally carry out an empirical application by using four monthly seasonally adjusted logarithm Consumer Price Index series.
