The statistical properties of the least squares estimators E30 and {-31 may be easily described Recall that we have assumed that the error term 6 in the model Y = BO + le + e is a random variable with mean zero and variance 02. Since the values of): are fixed, Yis a random vari- able with mean uYL : [30 + BI): and variance 0'2. Therefore, the values of EU and [31 depend on the observed y’s; thus, the least squares estimators of the regression coefficients maybe viewed as random variables. We will investigate the bias and variance properties of the least n squares estimators B.) and B]. Consider first [31. Because 81 is a linear combination of the observations Y” we can use properties of expectation to show that the expected value of B] is 13(81): B] (11-15) Thus, BI ‘15 an unbiased estimator ofthe true slope [31. Now consider the variance of BI. Since we have assumed that V(eI-) = oz, it follows that V(Y,) : (:2. Because 8] is a linear combination of the observations Yi, the results in Section 5-5 can be applied to show that V<Bl) : g3 (11-16) For the intercept, we can show in a similar manner that A A 2 1 1-2 Elfin) : Bu and V(Bn) : a t * (11-17) Thus, S0 is an unbiased estimator of the intercept B”. The covariance of the random vari- ables 80 and B1 is not zero. It can be shown {see Exercise 11-92) that cov(f‘}0a 81) = —(T2)_C/SH. The estimate of (I2 could be used in Equations 11-16 and 1 1-17 to provide estimates of the variance of the slope and the intercept. We call the square roots of the resulting variance estimators the estimated standard errors of the slope and intercept, respectively. In simple linear regression the estimated standard error of the slope and the estimated standard error of the intercept are A 62 A l“ 1 3c? seam): and se(BO)= 02[R+E} 2 respectively, where c‘r is computed from Equation 11-13. ___ ___... . . iiiiiw ..__.____._.. . ., The Minitab computer output in Table 1 1-2 reports the estimated standard errors of the slope and intercept under the column heading “SE coeff.” 410 plasma and ccrebrospinal fluid lcptin measurements.
