ˆ 2.101 2.101 t . Since, 1 0.025 ˆ tt , we reject the null hypothesis and conclude that 1 is statistically significant from zero at 0.05 level of significance. Example 2 Suppose that we have the ten pairs of observations on X (price) and Y (quantity supplied) shown in table below. Obs. Y (Quantity) X (Price) 1 69 9 2 76 12 3 52 6 4 56 10 5 57 9 6 77 10 7 58 7 8 55 8 9 67 12 10 53 6 11 72 11 12 64 8 Using the formulas for intercept and slope terms, we got the following estimated supply function: ˆ 33.75 3.25 YX 

One Sided (or One Tailed) t Test The most common use of the one-sided t -test is to determine whether a regression coefficient has the sign or value range predicted by economic theory. Possible one sided hypotheses around zero are: 01 1 :0 A H H and 1 A H H

ECON 301 - Introduction to Econometrics I April, 2012 METU - Department of Economics Instructor: Dr. Ozan ERUYGUR e-mail: [email protected] Lecture Notes 16 Possible one-sided hypotheses based on hypothesized values other than zero are: * 0 1 1 * 11 : : A H H  and * 0 1 1 * : : A H H a. Steps of One-Sided Individual Test Step 1. 00 : i H versus 0 : i A H Step 2. Construct the t-statistic ˆ ˆ ˆ () i i i t se , where ˆ i is the estimate and ˆ i se is its standard error 5 . If 0 0 , this t-value reduces to the ratio of regression coefficient to its standard error. Under 0 H , it has a t -distribution with T-k-1 degrees of freedom, where T is total number of observations, k is the number of slope terms and 1 is for the intercept term in the regression. Step 3. Look up in the t -table the entry corresponding to T-k-1 degrees of freedom and find the critical point * 1 Tk t  such that the area to the right of it is equal to the level of significance .
