Econ 262 In-class Assignment on Heteroskedasticity 1. Run an OLS regression with Y as the dependent variable and X 1 and X 2 as the independent variables. SAVE THE RESIDUALS. Make a scatterplot of X 2 versus the residuals, with the residuals on the vertical axis. Does the residual analysis suggest heteroskedasticity? Observe the p-values. Do any of the p- values suggest heteroskedasticity? (Note: looking for a “cone shape” in the relationship between the residuals and X 2 ) 2. Perform a White test of heteroskedasticity. State the null and alternative hypotheses, the decision rule and inference. Recall: Step 1: run regression with Y as the dependent variable and X 1 and X 2 as independent variables and save the residuals (NOTE: ALREADY DONE IN QUESTION 1). Step 2: Create new dataset where var(e)=residual^2, X 1 , X 1 ^2, X 2 , X 2 ^2, and X 1 X 2 . Step 3: Run regression based on data in step 2 with var(e) as the dependent variable.

### 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.
