The Instrumental Variable (IV) Method of Time-Series Analysis

The recursive IV method of estimation has been discussed in Chapter 4 in relation to the estimation of parameters in structural models with errors-invariables. In the recursive IV algorithm (IV) it is required that we generate a vector of instrumental variables \(\underline {\hat X} _K\) at each recursive step. If this is possible, then it is easy to see why the IV modification is effective in removing the asymptotic bias from the estimates.
