Q1 a) In the simple OLS regression estimation it is not possible that all actual independent Yi values lie above the estimated regression line. This is because OLS minimizes SUM ê2 , the residual , ê, is the difference between the actual Yi and the predicted Yi and has zero mean. In other words, OLS calculates the slope coefficient so that the difference between the predicted Yi and actual Yi is minimized.
The OLS estimates of the βs: Are unbiased – the βs are centred around the true population values of βs Have minimum variance – the distribution of the β estimates around the true βs are as tight as possible Are consistent – as the sample size(n) approaches infinity, the estimated βs …show more content…
We can then look at the TStatistics to see how individual variable can explain the dependent variable, by doing a Ttest comparing it with the Critical value T. By doing a 10%,5% or 1% test.
We could also look at the model as a whole by looking at the FStatistics and doing a Ftest.
With Eviews regression we can simply look at the PValues to see at which level of confidence we can reject the Hypothesis, From the above 3models, it seems that R2 is highest in model 3, and the adjusted R2 is also the highest in the model which tells us that the independent variable are better in explaining the dependent variable. Model 3 is a better regression model. Income per person is a better independent variable rather than income and population as a variable. Again this goes in line with economic theory, as income per person increases it would result increase

However, by analysing the P – value for both models, the FF three factor model has a higher likelihood to have omitted variable, which contradicts the econometric phenomena that Fama and French suggested (1996). From the raw data, the models are derived from a time series and the sample is taken in the same equity market, it is reasonable to suspect the data implant the inefficiency of serial correlation…
