Finitesample distribution of a recursively meanadjusted panel data unit root test
(2007) In Journal of Statistical Computation and Simulation 77(4). p.293303 Abstract
 In this paper, we investigate the finitesample distribution of the recursively meanadjusted panel data unit root test of Shin et al. [Shin, D. W., Kang, S. and Oh, M.S., 2004, Recursive mean adjustment for panel unit root tests. Economics Letters, 84, 433439.]. More precisely, we provide response surface parameters that can be used to calculate smallsample critical values for the test. Furthermore, we supply standardizing moments that can be used to calculate a test statistic that has an asymptotic standard normal distribution. The asymptotic standard normal distribution, which follows when the crosssectional dimension increases, enables easy calculation of critical values and pvalues.

 In this paper, we investigate the finitesample distribution of the recursively meanadjusted panel data unit root test of Shin et al. [Shin, D. W., Kang, S. and Oh, M.S., 2004, Recursive mean adjustment for panel unit root tests. Economics Letters, 84, 433439.]. More precisely, we provide response surface parameters that can be used to calculate smallsample critical values for the test. Furthermore, we supply standardizing moments that can be used to calculate a test statistic that has an asymptotic standard normal distribution. The asymptotic standard normal distribution, which follows when the crosssectional dimension increases, enables easy calculation of critical values and pvalues. Hence, it is of interest to study how large the crosssectional dimension has to be in order for the normal approximation to be valid for inference. By performing a Monte Carlo simulation, we find that the normal approximation works well, at conventional significance levels, even when the crosssectional dimension is as small as 2. We also supply critical values and moments for the panel unit root test that can be used when the baseline model is augmented to account for serially correlated disturbances. Finally, we investigate the finitesample size and power properties of the test and find that the test performs well even when disturbances display serial correlation. (Less)
