2 Regression Model (review) Y = ! 0 + 1 x + e μ Y x = 0 + 1 x , a straight line the model for the mean of Y at given values of x Y = dependent variable x = independent variable 0 = y-intercept 1 = slope of line e = error normally distributed with mean = 0 and Var e ( ) = e 2 The errors are assumed to be independent of each other.
3 Sampling Distribution of b 0 , b 1 b 0 , b 1 are the least squares estimates of ! 0, 1 The “sampling distribution” of b 0 , b 1 is the probability distribution of these estimated values over repeated samples y 1 ,.., y n from the ideal linear regression model with fixed values of 0, 1 and e 2 and x 1 ,.., x n . b 0 and b 1 have normal distributions, with nice formulas for their expectation and variance. (See later pages.) These important facts can be mathematically proved. This is done in more advanced courses. The appendix of these notes describes a Monte-Carlo demonstration to illustrate these facts.

4 Sampling Distribution (Details) Sampling distribution of b 0 is normal with E b 0 ( ) = ! 0 Var b 0 ( ) = e 2 1 n + x 2 n " 1 ( ) s x 2 # \$ % ' ( where s x 2 ! 1 n ! 1 x i ! x ( ) 2 i " Sampling distribution of b 1 is normal with E b 1 ( ) = 1 Var b 1 ( ) = e 2 n " 1 ( ) s x 2
Hence: If we knew ! e 2 we could produce a confidence interval for 1 as b 1 ± z 2 " e 2 n # 1 ( ) s x 2 , where z 2 comes from the normal tables. Here, the term e 2 n " 1 ( ) s x 2 is the standard deviation of b . So we must first estimate e 2 .
