 Ka-fu Wong © 2007 ECON1003: Analysis of Economic Data 2 Joint, conditional and marginal probability, when there  are two random variables. Let (X,Y) be two random variables with a joint probability of P(X,Y).   From the joint probability, we can compute  the marginal probability P X (X) and P Y (Y).  P X (X=k) = ∑ Y  P   (X=k,Y); P Y (Y=k) = ∑ X  P   (X,Y=k) the conditional probability P x|y (X) and P y|x (Y). P X|Y=k (X) = P(X,Y=k)/ P Y (Y=k) ; P Y|X=k (Y) = P(X=k,Y)/ P X (X=k)  Unconditional expectation E(Y) E(Y) =∑ Y  ∑ X  Y*P   (X,Y) Conditional expectations: E(Y|X) and E(X|Y)  E(Y|X) = ∑ Y  Y*P Y|X (Y) E(X|Y) = ∑ X  X*P X|Y (X)
