Abstract: Kejriwal and Perron (2010, KP) provided a comprehensive treatment for the problem of testing multiple structural changes in cointegrated regression models. A variety of models were considered depending on whether all regression coefficients are allowed to change (pure structural change) or a subset of the coefficients is held Öxed (partial structural change). In this note, we Örst show that the limit distributions of the test statistics in the latter case are not invariant to changes in the coe¢ cients not being tested; in fact, they diverge as the sample size increases. To address this issue, we propose a simple two step procedure to test for partial parameter stability. The Örst entails the application of a joint test of stability for all coe¢ cients as in KP. Upon a rejection, the second conducts a stability test on the subset of coe¢ cients of interest while allowing the other coe¢ cients to change at the estimated breakpoints. Its limit distribution is standard chi-square. The relevant asymptotic theory is provided along with simulations that illustrates the usefulness of the procedure in finite samples.
