STA302/1001 week 2 1 Statistical Assumptions for SLR The assumptions for the simple linear regression model are: 1) The simple linear regression model of the form Y i = β 0 + β 1 X i + ε i where i = 1, …, n is appropriate. 2) E ( ε i )=0 2) Var( ε i ) = σ 2 3) ε i ’s are uncorrelated.

STA302/1001 week 2 2 Properties of Least Squares Estimates Estimate of β 0 and β 1 – functions of data that can be calculated numerically for a given data set. Estimator of β 0 and β 1 – functions of the underlying random variables. Recall: the least-square estimators are… Claim: The least squares estimators are unbiased estimators for β 0 and β 1 . Proof:
STA302/1001 week 2 3 Estimation of Error Term Variance σ 2 The variance σ 2 of the error terms ε i ’s needs to be estimated to obtain indication of the variability of the probability distribution of Y . Further, a variety of inferences concerning the regression function and the prediction of Y require an estimate of σ
