Distribution of the Durbin–Watson Statistic in Near Integrated Processes


This paper analyzes the Durbin–Watson (DW) statistic for near-integrated processes. Using the Fredholm approach the limiting characteristic function of DW is derived, in particular focusing on the effect of a “large initial condition” growing with the sample size. Random and deterministic initial conditions are distinguished. We document the asymptotic local power of DW when testing for integration.
