Abstract:

Statistical procedures for testing the mean of a first-order autoregressive model are evaluated. Two types of test statistic are considered. One involves estimating the autocorrelation and using that estimate to transform the data. The second type of test statistic is of the form Tw, where w is a function of the estimated autocorrection and T square root of n x the mean of Ys. The usual estimation of the autocorrelation is used initially and compared to a revised estimator which provides less biased estimates. Each procedure is evaluated according to its performance on a set of simulated data. Author
