A Note on an Iterative Least Squares Estimation Method for ARMA and VARMA Models
University of London - Queen Mary College - Department of Economics
U of London Queen Mary Economics Working Paper No. 467
In this note we suggest a new iterative least squares method for estimating scalar and vector ARMA models. A Monte Carlo study shows that the method has better small sample properties than existing least squares methods and compares favourably with maximum likelihood estimation as well.
