I want to apply the U-MIDAS method which is basically Least Square regression to a cross sectioned time series. Do I need to seasonally decompose my X and Y and should I test for unit root? Some of the papers I read do that and some don't so I do not know what to do? The whole method is odd, but this is what is done by all researchers.
