Size Properties of Cointegration Tests in Misspecified Systems
2004 (English)In: Applied Economics Letters, Vol. 11, no 15, 919-924 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
The small sample size properties of three frequently used cointegration tests when a system has been misspecified are investigated. Specifically, the misspecification consists of one relevant variable being omitted from a system with one cointegrating vector. A Monte Carlo study shows that the Johansen (1991) trace test, adjusted by a simple finite sample correction, has the most robust behaviour when lag length in the test equations is chosen according to traditional information criteria.
