STAT 100B HW 5 Due Friday 5pm Problem 1: For the simplest regression model y i = βx i + ± i , i = 1 ,...,n , suppose x i are fixed, and E[ ± i ] = 0, Var[ ± i ] = σ 2 , and ± i are independent. Consider the estimator ˆ β = n i =1 w i y i / n i =1 w i x i , where w i may depends on x i , but not on y i . (1) Find E[ ˆ β ] and Var[ ˆ β ]. (2) Show that Var[ ˆ β ] is minimized when w i x i . Calculate the minimum. Problem 2: For the simple regression y i = β 0 + β 1 x i + ± i , i = 1 ,...,n , define the sample variance of ( x i ,i = 1 ,...,n ) as V x = n i =1 ˜ x 2 i /n , define the sample variance of ( y i ,i = 1 ,...,n ) as V y = n i =1 ˜ y 2 i /n , and define the sample covariance between ( x i ,y i ,i = 1 ,...,n ) as C xy = n i =1 ˜ x i ˜ y i /n , where ˜ x i = x i - ¯ x , and ˜ y i = y i - ¯ y . Define the sample correlation as ρ xy = C xy / ( V x p V y ). (1) Show that
