3. Multiple Regression Model: Estimation (Ch3) 3. Multiple Regression Model: Estimation • Lecture plan (largely parallel to Ch2) otivation and definitions Motivation and definitions – ZCM assumption stimation method: OLS – Estimation method: OLS – Mechanics of OLS nderlying assumptions of multiple regression model – Underlying assumptions of multiple regression model – Expected values and variances of OLS estimators mitted and irrelevant variables – Omitted and irrelevant variables – Gauss-Markov theorem ie_Slides03 R.

3. Multiple Regression Model: Estimation (Ch3) • Motivation – Example 1. (control observable factors) wage = β 0 + β 1 educ + error, where error represents (or contains) exper . exper is likely related to educ . • The ceteris paribus effect of educ on wage cannot be properly estimated in this model. Why? If exper is available, then we can “hold expr fixed” in wage = β 0 + β 1 educ + β 2 exper + u, where wage is explained by both educ and expr . β 1 and β 2 measure ceteris paribus effects, properly estimable if u is not “related” to educ and expr . ie_Slides03 R.

3. Multiple Regression Model: Estimation (Ch3) • Motivation – Example 2. (flexible functional form) wage = β 0 + β 1 age + β 2 age 2 +...+ u, where wage may increase initially and decrease eventually as age increases. – In general, regression models with multiple x ’s have the following merits. They • allow us to explicitly control for (hold fixed) many ctors that affect the dependent variable in order to factors that affect the dependent variable, in order to draw ceteris paribus conclusions; rovide better explanation of the dependent variable by provide better explanation of the dependent variable by accommodating flexible functional forms. ie_Slides03 R.

3. Multiple Regression Model: Estimation (Ch3) • Multiple regression model – Definition y = β 0 + β 1 x 1 +...+ β k x k + u , y : dependent variable (observable) x 1 , . .., x k : independent variables (observable) β 1 , . .., β k : slope parameters, “ partial effect ”, (to be estimated) β 0 : intercept parameter (to be estimated) u : error term or disturbance (unobservable) k : the number of independent variables he disturbance presents factors other than – The disturbance u represents factors other than x ’s . – With the intercept β 0 , the unconditional mean of u can lways be set to zero: always be set to zero: E ( u ) = 0 . ie_Slides03 R.

3. Multiple Regression Model: Estimation (Ch3) • Zero conditional mean assumption – The zero-conditional-mean (ZCM) assumption is E ( u | x 1 , . .., x k ) = 0, for the multiple regression model.
