5.1 Interval Estimation 5.1.1 The Theory A standardized normal random variable is obtained from b 2 by subtracting its mean and dividing by its standard deviation: 2 2 2 ~ (0,1) var( ) b Z N b = (5.1.1) The standardized random variable Z is normally distributed with mean 0 and variance 1.

5.5.1a The Chi-Square Distribution Chi-square random variables arise when standard normal, N (0,1), random variables are squared. If Z 1 , Z 2 , ..., Z m denote m independent N (0,1) random variables, then 2 2 2 2 1 2 ( ) ~ m m V Z Z Z = + + + χ K (5.1.2) The notation 2 ( ) ~ m V χ is read as: the random variable V has a chi-square distribution with m degrees of freedom .

2 ( ) 2 ( ) [ ] var[ ] var 2 m m E V E m V m = χ = = χ = (5.1.3) V must be nonnegative, v 0 the distribution has a long tail, or is skewed , to the right. As the degrees of freedom m gets larger the distribution becomes more symmetric and “bell-shaped.” As m gets large the chi-square distribution converges to, and essentially becomes, a normal distribution.

5.5.1b The Probability Distribution of 2 ˆ σ The random error term e t has a normal distribution, 2 ~ (0, ) t e N σ . Standardize the random variable by dividing by its standard deviation so that / ~ (0,1) t e N σ . 2 2 (1) ( / ) ~ t e σ χ . If all the random errors are independent then 2 2 2 2 2 1 2 ( ) ~ t T T t e e e e = + + + χ σ σ σ σ L (5.1.4) Slide 5.6 Undergraduate Econometrics, 2 nd Edition –Chapter 5
2 2 2 2 ˆ ˆ ( 2) t t e T V - σ = = σ σ (5.1.5) V does not have a 2 ( ) T χ distribution because the least squares residuals are not independent random variables. All T residuals 1 2 ˆ t t t e y b b x = - - depend on the least squares estimators b 1 and b 2 . It can be shown that only T - 2 of the least squares residuals are independent in the simple linear regression model.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

Dana University of Pennsylvania ‘17, Course Hero Intern

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
