ECON 3200 Introduction to Econometrics Problem set 2 (due date: February 13, 2009) Problem 1. (Wooldridge 3.8) Suppose that average worker productivity at avgprod ) depends on two factors, average hours of training ( avgtrain ) and average worker ability ( avgabil ): avgprod = & 0 + 1 avgtrain + 2 avgabil + u: ability, so that avgtrain and avgabil are negatively correlated, what is the likely bias in e 1 obtained from the simple regression of avgprod on avgtrain ? Problem 2. (Wooldridge 3.10) Suppose that you are interested in estimating the ceteris paribus relationship between y and x 1 .
