1 | Equation (3) is a transformed version of the unit root test equation (random walk with drift), where $p$ is equal to ${b}_{1}$ + 1. $p$ is an auto-regressive coefficient. If it is unity (or close to unity), it means that a given series has a unit root. By way of contrast, if it is zero (or close to zero), it means that the process does not have a unit root process. |
