We consider changes in the degree of persistence of a process when the degree
of persistence is characterized as the order of integration of a strongly dependent
process. To avoid the risk of incorrectly specifying the data generating process
we employ local Whittle estimates which uses only frequencies local to zero. The
limit distribution of the test statistic under the null is not standard but it is well
known in the literature. A Monte Carlo study shows that this inference procedure
performs well in finite samples. We demonstrate the practical utility of these
results with an empirical example, where we analyse the inflation rate in Germany
for the period 1986–2017.
