(ii) Estimate the regression. (iii) Estimate the standard error of ˆ β 2 and test the hypothesis that β 2 is zero. (iv) Test the same hypothesis by running the restricted regression and exam- ining the difference in the residual sum of squares. Exercise 2 Suppose you estimated the following regression: ˆ Y = 10 + 2 X + 3 D where Y is earnings, X is education in years and D is the dummy variable which is zero for females and one for males.
