In this study, unit root tests, co-integration tests and long term co-efficient tests are researched with panel data of current account balance and GDP for OECD countries. In this research cross section dependence study is measured with LM tests and in conclusion. First generation unit root tests Levin-Lin and Chu(LLC), Breitung, Im-Peseran and Shin (IPS), Fisher ADF, Fisher PP and Hadri estimators are used with second generation unit root tests SURADF (Seemingly Unrelated Regression Augmented Dickey-Fuller), CADF (Cross-Sectionally Augmented Dickey-Fuller) and CIPS estimators. To measure co-integration, Pedroni, Kao, Johansen-Fisher and Westerlund co-integration tests are used. For forecast of long term co-efficent PMGE (Pooled Mean Group Estimation) and MGE (Mean Group Estimation) are used which are the estimators of DOLS. As a consequence of the econometric applications, co-integration relationship between economic growth and current account balance and long term statistically significant co-efficients which change between -0,2 and -0,4 are reached.
