For each parameter we estimate within our model, there will be an associated error term. Each error term is treated within the model estimation process as a random component or random variable over decision makers. In treating the error components of our model as random variables, it is common practice to examine the distribution of the error terms, particularly in terms of their variances and covariances. These are most often shown in the form of a variance–covariance matrix. For the above example, there will exist four variance terms, each linked to an error component of our four attributes.
13. 12g) For example, if k = 6 and j = 2, var(6X 1 + 2X 2 ) = 36 var(X 1 ) + 4 var(X 2 ) The expected value and variance represent the two most commonly used statistics to describe a univariate distribution. When we move to the multivariate case, however, it is common to use other statistical descriptors of the data. Two of the more common multivariate statistics reported are the covariance and correlation. We discuss both of these now. 3 Covariance The covariance is a statistical measure representative of the degree to which two random variables vary together.
Now consider the rolling of two dice. The sum of the values of the two dice must lie between two and twelve; however, the probability that a particular value will be observed is not necessarily equal to the probability of any of the other values being observed. Why? 2. 2, we show all possible outcomes that may be observed in the rolling of our two dice. Only one combination of circumstance will result in the sum of our two dice equalling two. That is, we will only ever observe the sum of our two dice equalling two if the face values of both of our dice happen to equal one.
