Hey I have this final i am working on.Any help is appreciated.

Final Exam ECO321 Summer 2016 1. The following estma±ed equaton was ob±ained by OLS regression using quar±erly da±a for 1958 ±o 1976 inclusive: Y± = 2.20 + 0.104X1± − 3.48X2± + 0.34X3±. (3.4) (0.005) (2.2) (0.15) S±andard errors are in paren±heses. The explained sum of squares is 80 and ±he residual sum of squares 40. a. Tes± ±he hypo±hesis ±ha± ±he coefficien± on X2± equals −4. b. when ±hree seasonal dummy variables are added and ±he equaton re-estma±ed, ±he explained sum of squares rose ±o 90. De²ne ±he seasonal dummy variables and wri±e down ±he regression equaton (using β’s for coefficien±s). Tes± ±he null hypo±hesis of no seasonali±y. 2. Explain CLT and LLN in de±ails. 3. Wha± is ±he di³eren± be±ween in±erpre±aton of coefficien± in SLRM and MLRM? How does i± rela±e ±o omi´ed variable bias? How abou± a linear versus nonlinear multple regression model coefficien±s? (Quadratc). Wha± is ±he role of con±rols? 4. How do you choose be±ween log-linear model and log-log model? How abou± linear log-linear? And how abou± linear-log and log-log? Why? How do you in±erpre± coefficien±s of a A) log-linear B) log-log and C) linear-log model? 5. The following equaton represen±s a regression model for ±he number of children in a family: Children = β0 + β1mo±herseduc + β2fa±herseduc + β3familyincome + u, Where children is ±he number of children, mo±herseduc and fa±herseduc are ±he years of educaton of ±he mo±her and fa±her respectvely and familyincome is ±he income of ±he family. We expec± β1 < 0, β2 < 0 and β3 < 0. a. Wha± is ±he e³ec± of omiµng family income from ±he regression model on β1 andβ2 if each paren±’s educaton is positvely correla±ed wi±h family income? b. Wri±e ±he null hypo±hesis, res±ric±ed regression, ±es± s±atstc and degrees of freedom for a ±es± of ±he hypo±hesis ±ha± ±he e³ec± of mo±her’s educaton equals ±he e³ec± of fa±her’s educaton. 6. The S±a±a ²le airlinecos±s.d±a con±ains da±a on indexes of variable cos±s (variablecos±), ou±pu± (sea±miles) and prices of labor (pricelabor), ma±erials (pricema±erials) and fuel (pricefuel) for 23 airlines (name) for a maximum period of 13 years (years) from 1971-1986. The da±ase± con±ains 268 observa±ions. If ±he producton func±ion is Cobb-Douglas, one can show ±ha± ±he variable cos± func±ion is of ±he form log c = α + β y log y + β L log P L + β M log P M + B F log P F Where c deno±es variable cos±, y deno±es ou±pu± and Pj deno±es ±he price of inpu± j. a) Es±ima±e ±he Cobb-Douglas cos± func±ion. In±erpre± your coefficien±s (discuss ±he sign, signi²cance and magni±ude of each slope coefficien±). b) Wri±e down ±he null hypo±hesis corresponding ±o ±he s±a±emen± ±ha± inpu± prices have no e³ec± on cos±s. Tes± ±his hypo±hesis using an appropria±e res±ric±ed regression.

Final Exam ECO321 Summer 2016 c) Write down the null hypothesis corresponding to the statement that the efect o± labor prices is equal to the efect o± ±uel prices. Test this hypothesis using an appropriate restricted regression. d) The returns to scale o± the associated production ±unc²on is 1/βy. Estimate the Cobb- Douglas cost ±unc²on. Test the appropriate hypothesis to determine whether this production ±unc²on displays increasing, decreasing or constant returns to scale. Note that increasing, decreasing and constant returns to scale are associated with 1/βy > 1, 1 /βy < 1 and 1/βy =1 respec²vely. e) O±ten we assume that the cost ±unction is a quadratic ±unc²on, log c = α + β y log y + β yy ( logy ) 2 + β L log P L + β M log P M + B F log P F Can you reject the hypothesis that the cost ±unction is linear? What is the shape o± the estimated quadra²c ±unc²on?
