Sample text

The regression output for the four constructed data sets is identical (to two decimal places) in every respect. 1 it is obvious that a straight-line regression model is appropriate only for Data Set 1, since it is the only data set for which E(Y | X = x ) = b 0 + b1 x and Var(Y | X = x ) = s 2 seem reasonable assumptions. On the other hand, the data in Data Set 2 seem to have a curved rather than a straight-line relationship. The third data set has an extreme outlier that should be investigated.

9803. 39). Finally, the company should adopt the new method if a reduction of time of this size is of practical significance. 7 Derivations of Results In this section, we shall derive some results given earlier about the least squares estimates of the slope and the intercept as well as results about confidence intervals and prediction intervals. Throughout this section we shall make the following assumptions: 1. , E(Y | X = xi ) = b 0 + b1 xi 2. ,en are independent of each other 3. ,en have a common variance s2 4.

En are independent of each other 3. ,en have a common variance s2 4. The errors are normally distributed with a mean of 0 and variance s2(especially when the sample size is small), that is, e | X ~N (0, s 2 ) 34 2 Simple Linear Regression In addition, since the regression model is conditional on X we can assume that the values of the predictor variable, x1, x2, …, xn are known fixed constants. 5) that the least squares estimate of b1 is given by n x −x . 8). 6) let’s consider ⎡ n ⎤ E(bˆ1 | X ) = E ⎢ ∑ ci yi | X = xi ⎥ ⎣ i =1 ⎦ n = ∑ ci E [yi | X = xi ] i =1 n = ∑ ci (b 0 + b1 xi ) i =1 n n i =1 i =1 = b 0 ∑ ci + b1 ∑ ci xi n ⎧x − x⎫ ⎧ xi − x ⎫ = b0 ∑ ⎨ i ⎬ + b1 ∑ ⎨ ⎬xi SXX ⎭ i =1 ⎩ i =1 ⎩ SXX ⎭ = b1 n n since ∑ (x i i =1 n n i =1 i =1 − x ) = 0 and ∑ ( xi − x ) xi = ∑ xi2 − nx 2 = SXX .
