Suppose we have the following model: Xt = β Xt −1 + εt Then corr (Xt , Xt +s ) = β s So we can plot the sample autocorrelation function given by ρ(s) = ˆ ¯ ¯ (Xt − X )(Xt +s − X ) ¯ (Xt − X )2 ¯ (Xt +s − X )2 If the |β | < 1 then this quantity approximates the true autocorrelation function. 23 / 52 Introduction Stationary Processes Nonstationary Processes Spurious Regressions Testing for Nonstationarity Cointegration Autocorrelation function ADF Autocorrelation function The autocorrelation function is a useful graphical tool for detecting nonstationarity.
