On the Relationship between Estimate and Its t Value
ABSTRACT
It is generally believed that the signs of the estimated coefficient and its t value should be the same. This paper, however, shows that there may be an inconsistency in the signs of the estimated coefficient and its t value when we use the group mean dynamic OLS estimator developed by Pedroni (2001).
