Re: st: Re: panel unit root tests
Thanks for the prompt response. I was not really sure
what the "lags" option meant when used with levinlin.
My understanding of the unit root test is that it
boils down to a test on the AR parameter(s) in a
dynamic model. The simplest such model would be: y =
By_i(t-1). Since "lags(0)" is a valid option, I was
not sure that "lags(2)" would give me what I wanted.
That is, my presumption was that "lags(0)" would test
the AR parameter for a first-order autoregressive
