Unformatted text preview: able xj has no partial e¤ect on the dVar y . The hypothesis Ho : βj = 0 all j 1 is an “extreme” exclusion restriction since we test the overall signi…cance of the regression: if we fail to reject Ho then there is no evidence that any of the eVars help explain y (STATA outputs this test by default when we use the command regress) Melissa Tartari (Yale) Econometrics 36 / 41 Testing General Hypothesis: Remarks II For examples of applications of the command test look at the STATA tutorial within the tutorial for the command regress or type help test (also check out the very convenient command testparm).

Suppose we want to test the joint hypothesis Ho involving q exclusion restrictions (on q slope coe¢ cients); Melissa Tartari (Yale) Econometrics 38 / 41 Testing General Hypothesis: The F Test Here we provide an intuitive overview of the F test.

Melissa Tartari (Yale) Econometrics 38 / 41 Testing General Hypothesis: The F Test Here we provide an intuitive overview of the F test. Suppose we want to test the joint hypothesis Ho involving q exclusion restrictions (on q slope coe¢ cients); What would you start looking at? The sum of squared residuals SSR would seem to provide a convenient basis for testing such hypothesis in the sense that how much SSR increases when we exclude the q explanatory variables tells us something about the truth in Ho . We know that SSR increases when we leave out x 0 s from the model so what really matters is whether such increase is large enough relative to the SSR in the model with all of the variables to warrant rejecting Ho . Melissa Tartari (Yale) Econometrics 38 / 41 Testing General Hypothesis: The F Test The F statistics presented above does exactly this: it combines such information in such a way that the we know its distribution under Ho ! Indeed, we can rewrite it as follow: F= (SSRr SSRu ) /q SSRu /n K 1 (4.37) where: Melissa Tartari (Yale) Econometrics 39 / 41 Testing General Hypothesis: The F Test The F statistics presented above does exactly this: it combines such information in such a way that the we know its distribution under Ho !
