Markov chain approximation in bootstrapping autoregressions


Anatolyev, Stanislav and Andrey Vasnev (2002) "Markov chain approximation in bootstrapping autoregressions", Economics Bulletin, Vol. 3, No. 19, pp. 1–8


We propose a bootstrap algorithm for autoregressions based on the approximation of the data generating process by a finite state discrete Markov chain. We discover a close connection of the proposed algorithm with existing bootstrap resampling schemes, run a small Monte−Carlo experiment, and give an illustrative example.
