LINEAR REGRESSION MODELS W4315
HOMEWORK 2 ANSWERS February 15, 2010

Instructor: Frank Wood 1. (20 points) In the ﬁle ”problem1.txt”(accessible on professor’s website), there are 500 pairs of data, where the ﬁrst column is X and the second column is Y. The regression model is Y = β0 + β1 X + a. Draw 20 pairs of data randomly from this population of size 500. Use MATLAB to run a regression model speciﬁed as above and keep record of the estimations of both β0 and β1 . Do this 200 times. Thus you will have 200 estimates of β0 and β1 . For each parameter, plot a histogram of the estimations. b. The above 500 data are actually generated by the model Y = 3 + 1.5X + , where ∼ N (0, 22 ). What is the exact distribution of the estimates of β0 and β1 ? c. Superimpose the curve of the estimates’ density functions from part b. onto the two histograms respectively. Is the histogram a close approximation of the curve? Answer: First, read the data into Matlab. pr1=textread(’problem1.txt’); V1=pr1(1:250,1); V2=pr1(1:250,2); T1=pr1(251:500,1); T2=pr1(251:500,2); X=[V1;V2]; Y=[T1;T2]; Randomly draw 20 pairs of (X,Y) from the original data set, calculate the coeﬃcients b0 and b1 and repeat the process for 200 times b0=zeros(200,1); b1=zeros(200,1); i=0 for i=1:200 indx=randsample(500,20); x=X(indx); 1

y=Y(indx); avg x = mean(x); avg y = mean(y); sxx = sum((x − avg x).2 ); sxy = sum((x − avg x). ∗ (y − avg y)); b1(i) = sxy/sxx; b0(i) = avg y − b1(i) ∗ avg x; end; Draw histograms of the coeﬃcients b0 and b1 hist(b0) hist(b1)

i b. As we have known, b1 = i i(Xi −X)2 = i (Xii −X)2i = i Ki Yi whereKi = Xi −X¯ 2 ¯ ¯ i i i (Xi −X) So, b1 is a linear combination of Yi . Since Yi has a normal distribution, b1 also follows a normal distribution. E(b1 ) = i Ki E(Yi ) = i Ki (β0 + β1 Xi ) = i Ki β0 + ( i Ki Xi )β1 ¯ i (Xi −X) =0 ¯ i Ki = (Xi −X)2 i i i i i i i =1 ¯ 2 = ¯ 2 i Ki X i = i (Xi −X) i (Xi −X) E(b1 ) = 0 + 1 ∗...

...LinearRegression deals with the numerical measures to express the relationship between two variables. Relationships between variables can either be strong or weak or even direct or inverse. A few examples may be the amount McDonald’s spends on advertising per month and the amount of total sales in a month. Additionally the amount of study time one puts toward this statistics in comparison to the grades they receive may be analyzed using the...

Whitner Autoplex located in Raytown, Missouri, is one of the AutoUSA dealerships. Whitner Autoplex includes Pontiac, GMC, and Buick franchises as well as a BMW store. Using data found on the AutoUSA website, Team D will use LinearRegression Analysis to determine whether the purchase price of a vehicle purchased from Whitner Autoplex increases as the age of the consumer purchasing the vehicle...

...considers the relationship between two variables in two ways: (1) by using regression analysis and (2) by computing the correlation coefficient. By using the regressionmodel, we can evaluate the magnitude of change in one variable due to a certain change in another variable. For example, an economist can estimate the amount of change in food expenditure due to a certain change in the income of a household by using the regression...
