The asymptotic distribution of the likelihood ratio test for cointegrating rank is given. The limit distribution depends on the model for the deterministic terms, and we give the different formulae that can be obtained for a constant and a linear term in the equation under various restrictions. The limit distribution is a multivariate version of the Dickey–Fuller test, which is tabulated by simulation.
