Economic Statistics – Class Notes – 4/17/09 c.) Autocorrelation – A situation in which error terms are linearly related to one another * There is a relationship between the error terms; they are supposed to be totally random If there is a relationship between the error terms, there might be way to find the relationship between the dependent variables Autocorrelation – usually associated with time series data. Time series data – data collected over time Cross-sectional data problem with cross-sectional data heteroscedasticity 1.) Effect OLS (ordinary least squares) estimators of are still unbiased, but NO LONGER EFFICIENT. o What does “ordinary

Unformatted text preview: ” mean again???? 2.) Detection Graphical Techniques Two ways to detect: a. Positive autocorrelation – We plot the error terms for periods “t” and “t – 1” Two ways to look at positive autocorrelation: NO AUTOCORRELATION – A RANDOM PATTERN b. The Durbin Watson (hypothesis) Test for 1 st Order Autocorrelation • With first order autocorrelation, error terms in period “t” are related to error terms in period “t – 1.” Epsilon(t) used to be the error, but NOW it is related to Epsilon(t-1), so we need another variable to represent the error u(t) For Monday: Look at MC (multicollinearity) autocorrelation...
