d. The probability that a female who paid a $400 fare survived is 142% 2 page 3
e. No, this does not make sense because we cannot have probabilities greater than 1. A
probit model would restrict the predicted probability to somethin g between 0 and 1 for
any values of the right hand side variables.

c. We know that the formula for the reported variance is

therefore, the denominator is unchanged. What about ? For Data set 1
the residuals are

a. is equal to 16 . Thus the reported standard error for ̂ is √ . d. The tstat is just the ratio of the coefficient and the standard error so the t stat for
the same as the t stat for .

Therefore, ̂ is consistent.
b. This is just the standard OLS estimator, but our “Y” variable is now “X” and our RHS
variable is “Z”:

c. Similarly,

reduced form equation). Write down the OLS estimator ̂ .
As above, the OLS estimator for is:
