This chapter reviews Bayesian studies of the unit root. It identifies three different categories of discrimination that have emerged in Bayesian unit-root literature, where stationarity is discriminated from non-stationarity in the first category, and a point-null hypothesis, ρ = 1, is compared with alternative hypotheses in the second and third. It is shown that the third category, which contains only Schotman and van Dijk (1991a, b, 1993), deals with the discrimination between difference stationarity and trend stationarity.

Keywords: Bayesian discrimination; unit root; trend stationarity; difference stationarity; non-stationarity
