Are Real GDP Levels Nonstationary? Evidence from Panel Data Tests
AbstractEver since the seminal paper of, researchers have focused on the potential nonstationarity of important macroeconomic variables, and unit root tests are now a standard procedure in empirical analyses. While there are many findings of unit roots in macroeconomic variables using the popular augmentedtest, this test has low power against near-unit-root alternatives. Recently, panel data procedures have been proposed as an avenue to increased power. This paper applies panel unit root tests to international real GDP and real GDP per capita data. The results overwhelmingly indicate that international real GDP and real GDP per capita levels are nonstationary.
