This makes sense because firms have fixed costs which are independent of output. Given a 1% increase in labor input, we expect a 0 . 3% increase in output. Given a 1% increase in capital, we expect output to increase by 0 . 34% increase in ouput. Lastly, we expect a 1% increase in material inputs to increase output by 0 . 34%. (h) The regression has 2000- 1951 + 1 = 50 observations and it follows that there are 50- k- 1 = 46 degrees of freedom. The .95 critical value for 401 = 46 degrees of freedom....
