Unformatted text preview: 1 Econometrics Lecture #10: Further Issues in Dummy Variables Outline Combining F-tests and dummy interactions: the Chow Test Dummies for time periods Difference-in-differences Did the Mariel Boatlift lower the wages of Miamis workers? Maybe briefly: Dummy Dependent Variable 2 Chow Test Special case of F-test Chow test asks if separate models should be estimated for different groups? Ex: men & women Recall from last time: represents the intercept from the excluded group men 1 is how much different the intercept is for women then men, So 1 0 says women have a different intercept i i i i i u female yrsed yrsed female wg + + + + = 3 2 1 ) ln( Chow Test Recall from last time: 2 represents the slope for the excluded group the returns to education for men 3 is how much different the slope is for women then men, So 3 0 says women have a different slope Therefore the hypothesis that women & men have the same wage-education relationship can be tested with H : 1 = 3 = 0 An F-test! i i i i i u female yrsed yrsed female wg + + + + = 3 2 1 ) ln( Chow Test Example 1. Estimate fully interacted model = all variables interacted w/female R 2 unrestricted Equivalent to estimating separate m/f models 1. Estimate pooled model R 2 restricted 1.
