Statistical agencies publish macroeconomic indicators, various companies provide financial data, and some market research firms are willing to give one a look at their data sources (although usually with a time lag of a couple of years). ” one can opt for analyzing quarterly observed macroeconomic data. However, if one can also analyze a panel of 4,000 households who document their 49 A Concise Introduction to Econometrics purchases and the associated prices during a few years, one might get more precise answers.
T is usually used for time series data. Assuming a normal distribution, the question gets answered with a “yes,” with confidence 95 per cent if βˆ 2 is not within the interval [−2seβˆ , +2seβˆ ] – or, put 2 2 otherwise, if zero is not included in the interval [βˆ 2 − 2seβˆ 2 , βˆ 2 + 2seβˆ ]. In that case, one says that βˆ 2 is significant at the 2 5 per cent level, where again the 5 per cent combines with the value of 2. Obviously, if one favored the so-called “efficient market hypothesis,” which roughly says that stock returns cannot be forecast anyhow, one might zoom in on a statement of confidence that βˆ 2 is zero.
Hence, it is perhaps better to say that yi − β 1 − β 2 xi is conditionally normal distributed, where β 1 and β 2 are unknown parameters. 3) by that is, the unconditional mean µ gets replaced by the conditional mean β 1 + β 2 xi . For a sample of store sales, together with their store sizes, one can now try to estimate β 1 and 21 A Concise Introduction to Econometrics β 2 , as well as σ 2 . Of course, this econometric model contains only one variable yi and one variable xi , and one can think of many other variables relevant to sales.
