2 (c) Interactions between two continuous variables Y i = 0 + 1 X 1 i + 2 X 2 i + u i X 1 , X 2 are continuous As specified, the effect of X 1 doesn’t depend on X 2 As specified, the effect of X 2 doesn’t depend on X 1 To allow the effect of X 1 to depend on X 2 , include the “interaction term” X 1 i X 2 i as a regressor: Y i = 0 + 1 X 1 i + 2 X 2 i + 3 ( X 1 i X 2 i ) + u i

3 Interpreting the coefficients: Y i = 0 + 1 X 1 i + 2 X 2 i + 3 ( X 1 i X 2 i ) + u i General rule: compare the various cases Y = 0 + 1 X 1 + 2 X 2 + 3 ( X 1 X 2 ) (b) Now change X 1 : Y + Y = 0 + 1 ( X 1 + X 1 ) + 2 X 2 + 3 [( X 1 + X 1 ) X 2 ] (a) subtract (a) – (b): Y = 1 X 1 + 3 X 2 X 1 or 1 Y X = 1 + 3 X 2 The effect of X 1 depends on X 2 (what we wanted) 3 = increment to the effect of X 1 from a unit change in X 2

4 Example : TestScore, STR, PctEL TestScore = 686.3 – 1.12 STR – 0.67 PctEL + .0012( STR PctEL ), (11.8) (0.59) (0.37) (0.019) The estimated effect of class size reduction is nonlinear because the size of the effect itself depends on PctEL : TestScore STR = –1.12 + .0012 PctEL PctEL TestScore STR 0 –1.12 20% –1.12+.0012 20 = –1.10

5 Example, ctd: hypothesis tests TestScore = 686.3 – 1.12 STR – 0.67 PctEL + .0012( STR PctEL ), (11.8) (0.59) (0.37) (0.019) Does population coefficient on STR PctEL = 0? t = .0012/.019 = .06 can’t reject null at 5% level Does population coefficient on STR = 0? t = –1.12/0.59 = –1.90 can’t reject null at 5% level Do the coefficients on both STR and STR PctEL = 0? F = 3.89 ( p -value = .021) reject null at 5% level( !! ) (Why? high but imperfect multicollinearity)
