Using two real exchange rate data sets, we implement a new form of unit root test. In particular, we use a panel unit root test to jointly test for a unit root in a group of OECD real exchange rates for the recent floating experience. In contrast to many other unit root tests using a similar data set, we are able to reject the null hypothesis of a unit root.
