Melissa Tartari (Yale) Econometrics 74 / 93 Failure of SLR.2: An Example (Q.2.b) Let us comment on our …ndings: C.1: µA = 0 implies µA = µB = 0 - given the normalization - thus, C.1 means that ZCMA holds whenever the distribution of U is the same across the two subpop.s: mean ability/drive is the same among 2yr college students and 4yr college students. As long as the two groups are not di¤erent in terms of their unobservables they can be di¤erent in terms of their observables (pA 6= pB is allowed) and there can be over/under sampling without either situation causing a bias in the OLS estimator of β1 .
