Phillips-Perron Test for Unit Roots

Computes the Phillips-Perron test for the null hypothesis that x has a unit root against a stationary alternative.

Usage
PP.test(x, lshort = TRUE)
Arguments
x

a numeric vector or univariate time series.

lshort

a logical indicating whether the short or long version of the truncation lag parameter is used.

Details

The general regression equation which incorporates a constant and a linear trend is used and the corrected t-statistic for a first order autoregressive coefficient equals one is computed. To estimate sigma^2 the Newey-West estimator is used. If lshort is TRUE, then the truncation lag parameter is set to trunc(4*(n/100)^0.25), otherwise trunc(12*(n/100)^0.25) is used. The p-values are interpolated from Table 4.2, page 103 of Banerjee et al (1993).

Missing values are not handled.

Value

A list with class "htest" containing the following components:

statistic

parameter

the truncation lag parameter.

p.value

the p-value of the test.

method

a character string indicating what type of test was performed.

data.name

a character string giving the name of the data.
