However, the critical values of this statistic will differ from those obtained for the simpler model and Rappoport and Reichlin (1989) present critical values, obtained by Monte Carlo simulation, for a sample size of T= 1 00. 45. They also find that the critical values are not biased towards rejecting the DS model if, as would naturally be the case in practice, the break points are selected after viewing the data. Further analysis of segmented trend models is provided by Perron ( 1989, 1 990), where detailed critical values are tabu­ lated for various types of structural change, by Christiano ( 1 992) and Zivot and Andrews ( 1992), where sequential techniques for determining the break points are examined, and by Campbell and Perron (1991), where a general testing framework is outlined.

Moreover, as our output example has shown, these methods can lead to markedly different decompositions into trend and cyclical components. While we would cer­ tainly not argue that these techniques are necessarily defective, it would obviously be desirable if alternatives existed and methods were available to statistically discriminate between different decompositions. This is partic­ ularly so given that the allocation of fluctuations to components, and the determination of whether such fluctuations have permanent or transitory effects, can be heavily dependent upon the decomposition chosen.
