Abstract

This paper provides tables of critical values for some popular tests of cointegration and unit roots. Although these tables are necessarily based oncomputer simulations, they are much more accurate than those previously available. The results of the simulation experiments are summarized by meansof response surface regressions in which critical values depend on thesample size. From these regressions, asymptotic critical values can be readoff directly, and critical values for any finite sample size can easily becomputed with a hand calculator. Added in 2010 version: A new appendixcontains additional results that are more accurate and cover more cases thanthe ones in the original paper.
