Long-memory parameter estimation using log-periodogram regression relies largely on the frequency bandwidth and the order of estimation. Literature shows that a data-dependent plug-in method for the bandwidth significantly increases the MSE’s. In a long memory time series with mild short range effect, a simple approach to determine the bandwidth size is suggested based on the spectral analysis. Monte Carlo simulation results and empirical applications show that the proposed bandwidth selection performs satisfactorily.
