I will now introduce a random component that affects the lnwage. I will introduce u = random error, which is defined as u = invnormal(uniform()) The function invnormal(uniform()) returns normally distributed random numbers with a mean of 0 and a standard deviation of 1. gen u = invnormal(uniform()) Note: since I am generating a random variable, what I observe in class will be different than what I record on this handout. Note that u does not appear to be correlated with education or lnwage: lnwageeducation u 4.70517 1 .1952169 4.80517 2 -1.23091 4.90517 3 1.953314 5.00517 4 -.7849584 5.10517 5 -.6400359 5.20517 6 -.9740305 5.30517 7 .7082468 5.40517 8 -.3281993 5.50517 9 -.3066868 5.60517 10 1.85042 5.70517 11 .2078537 5.80517 12 .8249497 5.90517 13 -1.335853 6.00517 14 .9023688 6.10517 15 -.6263756 6.20517 16 -.1184899 6.30517 17 -1.121178 6.40517 18 -.7535513 6.50517 19 -1.787513

    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.
