b logs y = b0 + b1x 2 + u becomes log(y ) = log(b0 ) + log(b1 ) + b2 ⋅ log(x ) + log(u ) @ b0 + b1 log(x ) + u .
2 2 Since Var (u | x ) = E (u 2 | x ) - éêëE (u | x )ùúû and E (u | x ) = 0 , we have that s 2 = E (u 2 | x ) = E (u 2 ) = Var (u ) . Therefore s 2 is also the unconditional variance, also called the error variance.
An alternative to making this distributional assumption is to consider the asymptotic case (i.e. assuming that the
sample size, n, is very large). Then, we would be in the regime where the central limit theorem holds. In this case, the
limiting distributions are all normal, with a certain means and variances. We will cover this setting separately in a
separate lecture, if there is time.
3 There is a non-zero covariance between the slope and intercept estimators:
Cov(b0, b1 ) = s 2 (-x )
