Our method of empirical analysis combines three approaches: first, a generalized autoregressive conditional heteroskedastic (GARCH) estimation of inflation variance variable, ||sigma~.sup.2~; second, an error-correction model of money demand; and third, estimation of time-varying coefficients of the error-correction model with Kalman filtering.

This method requires having regressors that are uncorrected with the product of the heteroskedastic errors, which has been shown to be a feature of many models, including measurement error and omitted factor models (Baum etal.
[13] conducted the study about the influence of vehicle, occupant, driver, and environmental characteristics on accident injuries involved with heavy-duty trucks, and the conclusion was obtained by using the heteroskedastic ordered probit models, which showed that the likelihood of severe accident is estimated to rise with the more vehicles involved in accident.
Thus, the OLS estimator would be biased and inconsistent if the error is heteroskedastic and its variance depends on one or more of the explanatory variables.
