Many Econometric models which included time series data have multicollinearity problem. Partial least square regression (PLS) is one of the popular multivariate regression methods in a a wide range of fields.The reason of that PLS have been designed to confront the situation that many correlated predictor variables and few samples situation. Growth rate is determined endogenously in endogenous growth models. In this study different algoritms (like Kernel, NIPALS, etc) of PLS are applied to an endogenous growth model starting with works of Romer (1986) and Lucas (1988). We study on real data for Turkey to illustrate the econometric applications and interpretations of various PLS algoritms using R programming. (C) 2012 Published by Elsevier Ltd.
