The fit of model is indicated by the adjusted R 2 ¼ 0.9 and the p -value of F -test is smaller than 1 percent, which is quite good for the revaluation period. The statistically significant EC indicates the existence of cointegration between the real exchange rate g t -value 200507-200806 (revaluation period) 8.9 * 6.5 200507-200906 (after the first revaluation period) 86 * 3.8 Notes: e i ; t ¼ u þ g un i ; t þ 1 i ; t ; Significant at: * 1 percent level; e is real exchange rate, Chinese Yuan per US dollar; un is unemployment rate of China, u is constant term and is not estimated in cointegration equation Table V.

The significantly positive coefficients of D un ( 2 2), D un ( 2 3), D un ( 2 4), D un ( 2 5), D un ( 2 6) and D un ( 2 8) support the notion that China would depreciate Yuan when the unemployment rate increases. The China Government may appreciate Yuan when the unemployment rate decreases. By examining the short-term impact in the period after the first Yuan revaluation using the VECM results (Table VII), we will notice that the fit of model, denoted by the adjusted R 2 , is 0.52 and the p -value of F -test is smaller than 1 percent, indicating a good fit. The lagged EC is significantly positive at a 10 percent level. All the coefficients of D un variables are approximately 0, which perhaps is because the real exchange rate fluctuated comparatively less from July 2008 to June 2009. The full period registers the smallest adjusted R 2 value (0.29), with D e ( 2 1) being the only term that significantly affects the dependent variable.
