An algorithm for constructing locally unbiased two-sided critical regions for the Durbin-Watson test is presented. It can also be applied to other two-sided tests. Empirical calculations suggest that, at least for the Durbin-Watson test, the current practice of using equal-tailed critical values yields approximately locally unbiased critical regions.
