Dear stata users,
I'm trying to estimate an autoregressive process AR(p).
Following the literature: 
-I checked if the series is stationary or not running the augmented
Dickey-Fuller test (as I expected, the series results stationary);
-I computed the optimal number of lag using DFgls test.
In your opinion, is this procedure correct?
Do I have to use other tests for unit-roots (Dickey-Fuller test, KPSS test,
.... or is the augmented Dickey-Fuller test fine to this end?
Do I have to use other methods for computing the optimal number of lag, as,
for instance, the command /varsoc/, or is the /dfgls/ command ok?
Thanks for answering and sharing my problem!
