–1– Econ 220B Final Exam Winter 2007 DIRECTIONS: No books or notes of any kind are allowed. Answer all questions on separate paper. 250 points are possible on this exam 1.) (115 points total) Consider the following regression model, y t = α + γ 0 z t + ε t for z t a ( q × 1) vector of explanatory variables. Let ε =( ε 1 , ε 2 , ..., ε T ) 0 and suppose that ε | z 1 , z 2 , ..., z T N ( 0 , σ 2 I T ) . a.) (20 points) Write down the formula that characterizes the OLS estimate of γ as a function of { y 1 , ..., y T , z 1 , ..., z T } . b.) (20 points) The OLS F test of the null hypothesis that γ = 0 canbewr ittenas F = ( SSR R U ) /m U / ( T k ) where R denotes the restricted sum of squared residuals and U denotes the unre- stricted sum of squared residuals. What are the values of m and k in this case? Explain exactly which regressions you would use to calculate R and U . c.) (20 points) What additional assumptions (if any) beyond those stated above would you need in order to conclude that F has an exact F ( n 1 ,n 2 ) distribution? What are the values of n 1 and n 2 ? d.) (20 points) The centered R 2 for a regression is de f ned by R 2 =1 P T t =1 e 2 t P T t =1 ( y t y ) 2 for y thesamp lemeano f y 1 ,..., y T and e t the OLS residual for observation t .C a l c u l a t e R 2 as a function of the F statistic in part (b).
