3 Detecting multicollinearity (1) Check correlation coeff between independent variables (2) Large std. errors for estimators t-tests would lead to conclusion of insignificance (3) Estimates may be sensitive to addition or removal of a few observations or variables Heteroscedasticity - non-constant variance, that is, Var( ε i ) = σ 2 i - with incorrect or varying standard errors, confidence intervals and hypothesis tests are invalid. ( see Fig. 11.1 and 11.2) Eg. Y = β 1 + β 2 X+ ε where Y = household expenditure on food X = household income
