STAT 100B HW 6 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 and Var( i ) = σ 2 . (1) Let ˆ β = i w i y i , where w i may depend on x i . Identify w i so that ˆ β is unbiased and achieves the minimal variance. (2) Let ˆ β = i w i y i / i w i x i . Show that ˆ β is unbiased. Identify w i so that ˆ β achieves the minimal variance. Problem 2: For the simplest regression model y i = βx i + i , i = 1 , ..., n , suppose x i are fixed, and i N (0 , σ 2 ) independently. Then what is the distribution of the least squares estimate

Unformatted text preview: ˆ β ? Problem 3: For the simple regression model y i = β + β 1 x i + ± i ,, i = 1 ,...,n , suppose x i are fixed, and ± i ∼ N (0 ,σ 2 ) independently. (1) What is the distribution of the least squares estimate ˆ β 1 ? (2) Suppose we want to test H : β 1 = 0 versus H 1 : β 1 6 = 0. If we set the type I error to be α , then what is the decision rule? (3) Give a non-technical discussion on the issue of overfitting. 1...

    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.
