4.1 OLS and Goodness of Fit Reviewing from Chapter 3, we have our model: Y i = b 1 + b 2 X i + є i Where: b 1 and b 2 are unknown (non-random) coefficients X values are non-random The error term, є i , is random with E(є i )=0; no expected error Var(є i )=σ 2 ; constant variance Cov(є i , є j )=0; no covariance between errors
4.1 OLS and Goodness of Fit Aside from our model, we have a data set containing: N observations of X and Y Actual X and Y values Our data combines with our model and assumptions to estimate our coefficients: i N i i N i i i X b Y b X X Y Y X X b 2 1 1 2 1 2 ˆ ˆ ) ( ) )( ( ˆ - = - - - = = =

4.1 Predicted and Error Using our estimated coefficients and ACTUAL X values, we obtain ESTIMATED or PREDICTED Y values: Using these predicted values, we can estimate error or the residual: i i X b b Y 2 1 ˆ ˆ ˆ + = i i i Y Y e ˆ ˆ - =
4.1.1 Deriving OLS OLS is obtained by minimizing the sum of the square errors. This is done using the partial derivative < = - - - = < = - - - = - - = = 2 0 ) ˆ ( 2 ˆ 1 0 ˆ 2 ˆ ˆ : min 2 1 2 2 2 1 1 2 2 1 1 2 ˆ , ˆ 2 1 i i i i i i i i i i N i i b b X X b b Y b e X b b Y b e X b b Y e where e N N N N N N N

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
