48 X 3 + 0. R 2 = r . the alternative hypothesis. In each of the following cases write down the restricted and unrestricted regression equations.8 . Remarks: 1-Write your answers with respect to the letters mentioned below. When ∧ the equation was re-estimated with three seasonal dummies added to the specification. the explained sum of squares rose to 114. a2 . What are the respective null hypothesis and how would you set the F-tests? a. Consider the model yt = β1 + β 2 x2t + β3 x3t + et .6 . a3 ) . A four-variable regression using quarterly data from 1958 to 1976 inclusive gave an estimated equation: Y = 2. c.104 X 2 − 3. (Hint: Use of the definition of Total Sum of Squares might be helpful) 4. σ = s . where household earnings are represented by EARN. Test the equality of intercepts allowing for different slopes for males and females. b.20 + 0. 2-If you need to do complicated calculations just describe the steps you will go through. c) Predict a value y0 for the dependent variable given the explanatory variable values x0 ' = (a1 .48 . You have 20 observations and after estimating the model you get the following results. 3. and the residual sum of squares was 18. State the null hypothesis. cov(b) = σ ( X ' X ) −1 = ⎢c c c ⎥ . run the test and comment on your conclusion. ⎡ b1 ⎤ ⎡ c1 c2 c3 ⎤ ^ ^ 2 ^ 2 ⎢b ⎥ .2. FEMALE is a gender dummy and EDUC is years of education. Suppose that you are given the following regression equation EARN = α + α F FEMALE + β EDUC + γ ( FEMALE ⋅ EDUC ) + ε . You have 594 observations. 2 . Test the equality of intercepts given the same slopes for males and females. H1 : β 2 ≠ β3 b) Test the hypotheses that H o : β1 = β 2 = β 3 = 1 . Test the equality of slopes and intercepts for males and females. 3-For the hypothesis testing include all required information to run the tests.34 X 4 The explained sum of squares was 109. b = ⎢ 2⎥ 1 1 ⎢ 4 5 6⎥ ⎢ b3 ⎥ ⎢c7 c8 c9 ⎥ ⎣ ⎦ ⎣ ⎦ a) Test the hypothesis that H o : β 2 = β3 .
