A note on the irrelevance of unit root tests and cointegration tests

Summary

We show that, in practice, the standard unit root tests, cointegration tests, and similar tests are unreliable. This conclusion is more generally applicable to other related regression-based tests. In particular, these tests attempt to solve a problem by creating another problem.

Keywords: unit root test, Dicky–Fuller test, ADF test, cointegration test, non-stationarity
