In this paper, we apply the model selection approach based on likelihood ratio (LR) tests developed in Vuong (1986) to the problem of choosing between two normal linear regression models which are non-nested. We explicitly derive the procedure when the competing linear models are both misspecified. Some simplifications arise when the models are contained in a larger correctly specified linear regression model, or when one computing linear model is correctly specified.
