Unformatted text preview: Regression Analysis Harry Tsang Department of Economics University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign April 11, 2008 Linear Regression: We Explain The Variation In Y, dependent variable, By Using Explanatory Variables X, independent variable I Simple Linear Regression - One Independent Variable X Y = + 1 X 1 + I Multiple Linear Regression - More Than One Independent Variable X Y = + 1 X 1 + 2 X 2 + ... + k X k + We Break The Total Variability In Y Into Two Different Components, SSR and SSE I SST (Sum of Squares Total): Total Amount of Variation, deg. of freedom = n - 1 SST = n X i ( y i- y ) 2 I SSR (Sum of Squares Regression): Total Amount of Variation Explained By Model, deg. of freedom = k (# of Independent Variables) SSR = n X i ( y i- y ) 2 I SSE (Sum of Squares Error): Total Amount of Variation Unexplained By Model, deg. of freedom = n - k - 1 SSE = n X i ( y i- y i ) 2 How Good Is Our Model At Explaining the Variability In Y? I Coefficient of Determination, R 2 ,: What proportion of the variation in y is explained by our model? R 2 = SSR SST = 1- SSE SST I F-test For Overall Model Validity, d.f. = k, n-k-1 H : 1 = 2 = ... = k = 0 H 1 : At least one is not equal to zero F = MSR MSE = SSR k SSE n- k- 1 I t-test For Significance Of Slope Coefficient, i , d.f. = n - k -1 H : i = 0 , H 1 : i 6 = 0 , H 1 : i < , H 1 : i > t = b i- i s b i Multiple Linear Regression Y = + 1 X 1 + 2 X 2 + ... + k X k + I Standard Error of The Estimate s = r SSE n- k- 1 I Standard Error of The Slope Coefficient: s b i = Given in Excel output I Adjusted R 2 Adj R 2 = 1- SSE n- k- 1 SST n- 1 = 1- SSE SST n...
