Establishing Equalities of OLSEs and BLUEs Under Seemingly Unrelated Regression Models
- 3 Downloads
Seemingly unrelated regression models (SURMs) are extensions of linear regression models which allow correlated errors between regression equations. The purpose of this article is to reconsider some fundamental problems on the performance and connection of ordinary least-squares estimators (OLSEs) and the best linear unbiased estimators (BLUEs) of parametric functions under an SURM. Motivated by a variety of known results and facts on the equivalence of OLSEs and BLUEs under general linear models, this article collects a list of necessary and sufficient conditions for OLSEs to be BLUEs under an SURM and presents a variety of statistical interpretations on the equivalence of OLSEs and BLUEs under the SURM.
