# Estimation and Hypothesis Testing of Cointegration Vectors in Gaussian Vector Autoregressive Models

@article{Johansen1991EstimationAH, title={Estimation and Hypothesis Testing of Cointegration Vectors in Gaussian Vector Autoregressive Models}, author={S{\o}ren Johansen}, journal={Econometrica}, year={1991}, volume={59}, pages={1551-1580} }

This paper contains the likelihood analysis of vector autoregressive models allowing for cointegration. The author derives the likelihood ratio test for cointegrating rank and finds it asymptotic distribution. He shows that the maximum likelihood estimator of the cointegrating relations can be found by reduced rank regression and derives the likelihood ratio test of structural hypotheses about these relations. The author shows that the asymptotic distribution of the maximum likelihood estimator…
