Empirical Analysis of the Money Demand Function in Sub-Saharan Africa

This paper empirically analyzed the money demand function in the Sub-Saharan African region using a nonstationary panel data analysis. We conducted the analysis on 35 countries based on annual data from 1980 to 2005. The empirical results revealed that there exists a cointegrating relationship of the money demand function in the Sub-Saharan African region. In other words, there is a close relationship between the money supply and the real economy over the long term, and monitoring money supply promises to play an important role in stabilizing the level of prices in this region.
