# Co-integration and error correction: representation, estimation and testing

@article{Engle1987CointegrationAE, title={Co-integration and error correction: representation, estimation and testing}, author={Robert F. Engle and Clive William John Granger}, journal={Econometrica}, year={1987}, volume={55}, pages={251-276} }

The relationship between cointegration and error correction models, first suggested by Granger, is here extended and used to develop estimation procedures, tests, and empirical examples. A vector of time series is said to be cointegrated with cointegrating vector a if each element is stationary only after differencing while linear combinations a8xt are themselves stationary. A representation theorem connects the moving average , autoregressive, and error correction representations for…

Examining impulse response functions in cointegrated systems

- Economics
- 1997

A system of reduced forms with cointegrated variables may be estimated in two ways: as a vector autoregression in levels, or as a vector error correction model. The latter is a restricted version of…

The Power of Cointegration Tests

- Economics
- 1992

A cointegration test statistic based upon estimation of an error-correction model can be approximately normally distributed when no cointegration is present. By contrast, the equivalent Dickey-Fuller…

In this paper we propose an alternative characterization of the central notion of cointegration, exploiting the relationship between the autocorrelation and the crosscorrelation functions of the…

Residuals-based Tests for Cointegration: An Analytical Comparison

- Mathematics

The Mathematical Structure of Error Correction Models.

- Computer Science
- 1985

A general error Correction model is defined, that encompasses the usual error correction model as well as the integral correction model by allowing a finite number of error correction terms which correspond to linear combinations of the vector process that are integrated of different order.
