    • A note on spurious regressions between stationary series 

      Su, Jen-Je (Applied Economics Letters, 2008)
      This article examines if the convergent t-test suggested by Sun (2004) is able to solve spurious regressions with stationary series. In brief, we find that the convergent t-test does provide better control over size compared ...

    • A note on the size of the KPSS unit root test 

      Su, Jen-Je; Amsler, Christine; Schmidt, Peter (Economics Letters, 2012)
      The KPSS unit root test with lags is asymptotically valid and the fixed-b asymptotic distribution predicts its critical values well. A small positive number of lags improves the size of the test, without much loss in power.
