Part 8: Hypothesis Testing Wald Distance Measure Testing more generally about a single parameter. Sample estimate is bk Hypothesized value is βk How far is βk from bk? If too far, the hypothesis is inconsistent with the sample evidence. Measure distance in standard error units t = (bk - βk)/Estimated vk. If t is “large” (larger than critical value), reject the hypothesis. ™    33/50

Part 8: Hypothesis Testing Test Statistics Forming test statistics: For distance measures use Wald type of distance measure, W = m [Est.Var( m )]-1 m An important relationship between t and F For a single restriction, m = r’b - q . The variance is r ’(Var[ b ]) r The distance measure is m / standard error of m . ™    35/50

Part 8: Hypothesis Testing Robust Tests p The Wald test generally will (when properly constructed) be more robust to failures of the narrow model assumptions than the t or F p Reason: Based on “robust” variance estimators and asymptotic results that hold in a wide range of circumstances. p Analysis: Later in the course – after developing asymptotics. ™    39/50
Part 8: Hypothesis Testing Particular Cases Some particular cases: One coefficient equals a particular value: F = [(b - value) / Standard error of b ]2 = square of familiar t ratio.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
