Chapter 3 Classical Linear Model (CLM) 3.1 Introduction To Come. 3.2 Assumptions 1. Dataset is a sequence of IID observations: {( Y t , X t ) R k + 1 t = 1 , 2 , ,n } ; 2. For some unknown β * , E ( Y t X t ) = X t β * , where X t = X t 1 X t 2 X tk , and β = β 1 β 2 β k ; 3. n t = 1 ( X t X t ) is invertible; 4. U t X t N ( 0 , σ 2 * ) , where U t = Y t - E ( Y t X t ) . 3.3 OLS estimator • Definition of OLS estimator: ̂ β n = arg min β Q n ( β ) , 25
where Q n ( β ) = n - 1 n t = 1 U t ( β ) 2 and U t ( β ) = Y t - X t β . ̂ σ 2 n = ( n - k ) - 1 k t = 1 U t ( ̂ β n ) 2 = n ( n - k ) - 1 Q n ( ̂ β n ) • Derivation of the OLS estimator: First-order conditions for arg min β Q n ( β ) = arg min β 1 n n t = 1 ( Y t - X t β ) 2 : [ β 1 ] - 1 n n t = 1 2 ( Y t - X t β ) X t 1 = 0 [ β 2 ] - 1 n n t = 1 2 ( Y t - X t β ) X t 2 = 0 [ β k ] - 1 n n t = 1 2 ( Y t - X t β ) X tk = 0 matrix form: n t = 1 ( Y t - X t β ) X t = 0 n t = 1 ( Y t X t - X t X t β ) = 0 n t = 1 Y t X t = n t = 1 ( X t X t ) β = n t = 1 X t X t β . derivation of the OLS estimator: ̂ β n = n t = 1 X t X t - 1 n t = 1 X t Y t by assumption 3, there exists the inverse of the matrix. 26

• Another derivation of the OLS estimator: X = X 1 X 2 X n = X 11 X 12 X 1 k X 21 X 22 X 2 k X n 1 X n 2 X nk ; and Y = Y 1 Y 2 Y n . Then, X Y = X 11 X 21 X n 1 X 12 X 22 X n 2 X 1 k X 2 k X nk Y 1 Y 2 Y n = n t = 1 X t 1 Y t n t = 1 X t 2 Y t n t = 1 X tk Y t = n t = 1 X t Y t and X X = [ X 1 X 2 X n ] X 1 X 2 X n = X 1 X 1 + X 2 X 2 + + X n X n = n t = 1 X t X t . This implies that ̂ β n = n t = 1 X t X t - 1 n t = 1 X t Y t = ( X X ) - 1 X Y . 3.4 Properties of OLS estimator 1. Conditionally unbiased estimator: E [ ̂ β n X ] = β * and E σ 2 n X ] = σ 2 * . This also implies that they are unconditionally unbiased. That is, E [ ̂ β n ] = β * and E σ 2 n ] = σ 2 * . 2. Conditionally normally distributed estimator: ̂ β n ̂ U X N β * 0 2 * ( X X ) - 1 0 0 M , where ̂ U = ̂ U 1 ̂ U 2 ̂ U n = Y 1 - X 1 ̂ β n Y 2 - X 2 ̂ β n Y n - X n ̂ β n , 27
and M = I - X ( X X ) - 1 X . 3. OLS estimator is a linear estimator. Definition (Linear Estimator) When an estimator is written as a linear function of dependent variable Y , it is called a linear estimator. 4. OLS estimator is the best (or most efficient) estimator. Definition (More Efficient Scalar Estimator) Suppose that θ * is to be estimated and that there are 2 estimators: ̂ θ n and ̃ θ n such that E [ ̂ θ n ] = θ * and E [ ̃ θ n ] = θ * . We say that one estimator, say ̂ θ n , is more efficient than another estimator ̃ θ n if var ( ̂ θ n ) var ( ̃ θ n ) . Definition (Most Efficient Scalar Estimator) If an unbiased estimator has the smallest variance than any other unbiased estimator, then we say that the estimator is the most efficient estimator.

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.

Dana University of Pennsylvania ‘17, Course Hero Intern

• 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.
