Determinants of the Algerian Economy: Autoregressive Distributed Lag Approach

Zergoune Mohamed, Okba Abdellaoui, Nawal Ben Amara


The study examines the determinants of the Algerian economy for the period 1970-2016. We employ Autoregressive Distributed Lag cointegration approach proposed by Pesaran et al. (2001). Findings confirm that CPI, total imports and broad money are significant in explaining economic growth in Algeria both in short-run and long-run. These findings suggest economic diversification is required to maintain a steady economic growth in the country.
