Instructor : H.H. Kim Econometrics 3 - Confidence Interval and Standard Errors of estimated effects - Interpreting coefficients - A general approach to nonlinear model 1. Identify a possible nonlinear relationship 2. Specify a nonlinear function and estimate its parameter by OLS 3. Determine whether the nonlinear model improves upon a linear model. 4. Plot the estimated nonlinear regression function. 5. Estimate the effect on Y of a change in X. Nonlinear Functions of a Single Regressor - Two Approach of Nonlinear Function 1. Polynomials in X - The population regression function is approximated by a quadratic, cubic, or higher-degree polynomial 2. Logarithmic transformations - Y and/or X is transformed by taking its logarithm - This gives a percentages interpretation that makes sense in many applications
