1 Key Answers for Exercise 2: Q1: (1) Do not agree (DNA). When important regressors are omitted, OLS estimator becomes inconsistent. (2) DNA. As long as WIC hold and T is large, OLS is consistent and asymptotically normal. (3) DNA. Dropping regressors may cause omitted-variables biases. (4) DNA. We can estimate the OLS covariance matrix using the Newey-West method. With this covariance matrix and OLS estimator of β , we can do test any hypothesis about . (5) DNA. We can use R 2 for model comparison only if the models to be compared use the same dependent variable. Q2: ˆ var( ) 1. Q3: (1) i) Use (B) to test for heteroskedasticity: Koenker’s test = T R 2 = 30 > 3.84 = c from χ 2 (1) at 95%. ii) Use GLS for random coefficient models (See the class notes for detailed estimation procedure). (2) Use (C): LM-type test = T R 2 = 5 > 3.84 = c from 2 (1). (3) Do the Prais-Winston GLS: Using (D), we can obtain ˆ = 0.4. Using this value, do the Prais-Winston transformation. Then, estimate the transformed equation by OLS.

    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.

    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.
