Is Per Capita Electricity Consumption Non-stationary? A Long-span Study for Turkey


ENERGY SOURCES PART B-ECONOMICS PLANNING AND POLICY, vol.9, no.2, pp.161-164, 2014 (SCI-Expanded) identifier identifier


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.
