For a stationary ergodic process it is proved that the dependence coefficient associated with absolute regularity has a limit connected with a periodicity concept. Similar results can then be obtained for stronger dependence coefficients. The periodicity concept is studied separately and it is seen that the double tailσ-field can be trivial while the period is 2. The paper imbeds renewal theory in ergodic theory. The total variation metric is used.
