    SN-005098 ***Alert Note***

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

    Product: SAS/ETS
    Component: ARIMA procedure
    Priority: ALERT

      In PROC ARIMA, 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 two.

      To circumvent the problem, the %DFTEST macro can 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 syntax:

         %DFTEST(work.a, Y, ar=0, dlag=12, outstat=work.b)

      dickey fuller seasonal unit root lag ar 0 dlag incorrout incorrstat
      arima stationarity rho tau t probability %dftest test
      lag 0 seasonal dickey-fuller test statistics and p-values incorrect
