Multiple Regression Regression with many regressors Y i = β 0 + β 1 X 1 i + β 2 X 2 i + ... + β K X Ki + ε i . Help solving the omitted variable bias Can study the e/ects of many variables at the same time Can use the prediction power of many variables simultaneously .

Estimation of Multiple Regression We use the sample moment conditions: 1 n N i = 1 Y i ˆ β 0 ˆ β 1 X 1 i ... ˆ β Ki X Ki ± = 0 1 n N i = 1 Y i ˆ β 0 ˆ β 1 X 1 i ... ˆ β Ki X Ki ± X 1 i = 0 ... 1 n N i = 1 Y i ˆ β 0 ˆ β 1 X 1 i ... ˆ β Ki X Ki ± X Ki = 0. Explicit formula for each ˆ β j is complicated. . Lecture (6) Intro Metrics 09/21/2010 5 / 47

A Partialling-Out Form The complicated formula actually has a simple, intuitive form: ˆ β 1 = n i = 1 ˆ r i 1 Y i n i = 1 ˆ r 2 i 1 , where ˆ r i 1 are the OLS residuals from regressions of X 1 on the rest of the explanatory variables, i.e., X 2 , ..., X K . .

A Partialling-Out Form In fact, ˆ β 1 = n i = 1 ˆ r i 1 Y i n i = 1 ˆ r 2 i 1 = n i = 1 ˆ r i 1 ˆ r 1 ± Y i n i = 1 ˆ r i 1 ˆ r 1 ± ˆ r i 1 because ˆ r 1 = n 1 n i = 1 ˆ r i 1 = 0. (why?) Interpretation: ˆ β 1 equals the slope coe¢ cient from the simple regression of Y on ˆ r 1 . . Lecture (6) Intro Metrics 09/21/2010 7 / 47

A Partialling-Out Form The residuals ˆ r i 1 are part of X 1 i that is uncorrelated with X 2 i , ..., X Ki . The multiple regression slope coe¢ cient, ˆ β 1 , is the sample relationship between X 1 and Y after the other explanatory variables are "partialled out." .

Assumption MLR.1 (Linear in Parameters). The population model can be written as Y = β 0 + β 1 X 1 + ... + β K X K + U , where β 0 , β 1 , ..., β K are unknown parameters of interest and U is an error term (unobserved). . Lecture (6)
