Applied Econometrics 7. Estimating the Variance of the Least Squares Estimator
Context     The true variance of  b  is  σ 2 E [(X X) -1 ]     We  consider how to use the sample data to  estimate this matrix.  The ultimate objectives  are to form interval estimates for regression  slopes and to test hypotheses about them.   Both require estimates of the variability of the  distribution.  We then examine a factor which  affects how "large" this variance is,  multicollinearity.

###### "Before using Course Hero my grade was at 78%. By the end of the semester my grade was at 90%. I could not have done it without all the class material I found."
— Christopher R., University of Rhode Island '15, Course Hero Intern

### What students are saying

• 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.
