Panel Unit-Root Tests of OECD Stochastic Convergence
This paper uses three panel unit-root tests and finds that real per capita GDP for OECD countries and a European subsample converge stochastically for the period 1948-87 but not for the entire sample of 1900-87. For the postwar period, the differential in income gaps or speed of adjustment is eliminated at an annual rate of 4-8% for OECD economies, and 6-9% for European economies.
