Joint detection of structural change and nonstationarity in autoregressions
Pitarakis, J. (2011) Joint detection of structural change and nonstationarity in autoregressions. Munchen, GE, Munich Personal RePEc Archive, 13pp. (MPRA Paper, 29189).
In this paper we develop a test of the joint null hypothesis of parameter stability and a unit root within an ADF style autoregressive specification whose entire parameter structure is potentially subject to a structural break at an unknown time period. The maintained underlying null model is a linear autoregression with a unit root, stationary regressors and a constant term. As a byproduct of our distribution theory we also obtain the limiting behaviour of a related Wald statistic designed to test solely the null of parameter stability in an environment with a unit root. These distributions are free of nuisance parameters and easily tabulated. The finite sample properties of our tests are subsequently assessed through a series of simulations.
