Thank you again. If I do decide to go with the -dfgls- command, could you please help me interpret the results? i.e. is the time-series stationary? . dfgls lCPI DF-GLS for lCPI Number of obs = 284 Maxlag = 15 chosen by Schwert criterion DF-GLS tau 1% Critical 5% Critical 10% Critical [lags] Test Statistic Value Value Value ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ 15 -0.614 -3.480 -2.815 -2.535 14 -0.659 -3.480 -2.823 -2.542 13 -0.787 -3.480 -2.830 -2.549 12 -1.235 -3.480 -2.838 -2.555 11 -0.351 -3.480 -2.845 -2.562 10 -0.285 -3.480 -2.851 -2.568 9 -0.223 -3.480 -2.858 -2.574 8 -0.327 -3.480 -2.865 -2.580 7 -0.381 -3.480 -2.871 -2.586 6 -0.457 -3.480 -2.877 -2.591 5 -0.254 -3.480 -2.883 -2.596 4 -0.164 -3.480 -2.888 -2.601 3 -0.084 -3.480 -2.894 -2.606 2 -0.233 -3.480 -2.899 -2.611 1 -0.206 -3.480 -2.903 -2.615 Opt Lag (Ng-Perron seq t) = 13 with RMSE .0030169 Min SC = -11.32856 at lag 13 with RMSE .0030169 Min MAIC = -11.51094 at lag 14 with RMSE .003008 Kind Regards Ihtesham ---------------------------------------- > Date: Thu, 27 Aug 2009 16:31:36 +0100 > Subject: Re: st: Appropriate lags for Augmented Dickey-Fuller Test > From: tirthankar.chakravarty@gmail.com > To: statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu > > -pperron- does not use lags to correct for serial correlation in the > Dickey-Fuller regressions and instead uses a Newey-West type robust > variance-covariance matrix to calulate the standard errors.
