Abstract

This article examines the stationary properties of per capita electricity consumption in which the endogenously determined break points are incorporated in Turkey by using annual data over 1923-2008. We utilize a Lagrange multiplier unit root test that endogenously determines structural breaks in level and/or trend. Our empirical findings provide significant evidence that per capita electricity consumption is stationary.
