The hypothesis implies that logG = β1 + logY – logPg + β4 logPNC + ... Strategy: Regress logG – logY + logPg on the other variables and Compare the sums of squares With two restrictions imposed Residuals Sum of squares = .0286877 Fit R-squared = .9979006 Unrestricted Residuals Sum of squares = .0085531 Fit R-squared = .9960515 F = ((.0286877 - .0085531)/2) / (.0085531/(36-9)) = 31.779951 The critical F for 95% with 2,27 degrees of freedom is 3.354. The hypothesis is rejected. &#152;&#152;&#152;&#152;™™ ™ 31/50 Part 8: Hypothesis Testing Basing the Test on R2 After building the restrictions into the model and computing restricted and unrestricted regressions: Based on R2s, F = ((.9960515 - .997096)/2)/((1-.9960515)/(36-9)) = -3.571166 (!) What's wrong? The unrestricted model used LHS = logG. The restricted one used logG-logY. The calculation is safe using the sums of squared residuals. &#152;&#152;&#152;&#152;™™ ™ 32/50 Part 8: Hypothesis Testing Wald Distance Measure Testing more generally about a single parameter....
