    V6-ARIMA-G976 ***Alert Note***

    Lag 0 seasonal Dickey-Fuller test statistics and p-values are incorrect

    Product: ETS
    Component: ARIMA
    Priority: ALERT

      The Dickey-Fuller seasonal unit root test statistics and p-values
      corresponding to the lag 0 autoregressive model are incorrect. These
      statistics are computed when the STATIONARITY=(ADF=(DLAG=s)) option of
      the IDENTIFY statement is specified, and when DLAG is set to at least

      To circumvent the problem, the %DFTEST macro may be used to compute
      the correct t-statistics and p-values. For example, a seasonal unit
      root test for monthly data (s=12) is computed using the following

         %dftest(work.a, y, ar=0, dlag=12, outstat=work.b)
