On GLS-detrending for deterministic seasonality testing

Working Papers from Gaidar Institute for Economic Policy

Abstract: In this paper we propose tests based on GLS-detrending for testing the null hypothesis of deterministic seasonality. Unlike existing tests for deterministic seasonality, our tests do not suffer from asymptotic size distortions under near integration. We also investigate the behavior of the proposed tests when the initial condition is not asymptotically negligible.
