Greetings,

I would like to employ the Phillips Perron test using the Stata command pperron on a time series of finance data. The output for this test, given on page 184 of Stata's time series manual, includes two test statistics: Z(rho) and Z(t). My main question is whether one test should be preferred over the other, and under what condition? A second question is whether the rho in the output corresponds to the alpha in the original article by Phillips and Perron (1988). 

Any insights would be greatly appreciated.

Nolan
