Econometrica. 1994;62:1383–1414]: the sup-likelihood ratio (LR) statistic; a weighted average of the exponential of LR-statistics and a weighted average of LR-statistics, are studied. Critical values for the statistics with time trend regressors, obtained via simulation, are found to vary considerably, depending on conditions on the error terms. The performance of the bootstrap in approximating p-values of the distributions is assessed in a simulation study. A sample approximation to asymptotic analytical expressions extending those of Kim and Siegmund [The likelihood ratio test for a change-point in simple linear regression. Biometrika. 1989;76:409–423] in the case of the sup-LR test is also assessed. The approximations and bootstrap are applied to the Quandt data [The estimation of a parameter of a linear regression system obeying two separate regimes. J Amer Statist Assoc. 1958;53:873–880] and real data concerning a change-point in oxygen uptake during incremental exercise testing and the bootstrap gives reasonable results.||Funding Details:||Science Foundation Ireland||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Taylor and Francis||Journal:||Journal of Statistical Computation and Simulation||Volume:||86||Issue:||7||Start page:||1430||End page:||1449||Copyright (published version):||2015 Taylor and Francis||Keywords:||Change-point; Regression; Likelihood ratio test; Lagrange multiplier test; Sup-F test; Time trend regressor; Correlated errors; Heteroskedastic errors; Simulation; Bootstrap||DOI:||10.1080/00949655.2015.1069826||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed||This item is made available under a Creative Commons License:||https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/3.0/ie/|
