Topics include review of statistics; F and chi-squared distributions ; review of simple linear regression model; multiple linear regression model; hypothesis testing, forecasting, diagnostics with regression models (including heteroskedasticity, serial correlation and model specification). Examples drawn from economics, finance, accounting, marketing and management.
Intended learning outcomes
- Apply the least-squares method of estimation to the context of the simple linear regression model.
- Apply the principles of the least-squares method of estimation and inference to the multiple linear regression model.
- Apply EViews to estimate, test hypotheses and forecast in the context of the linear regression model.
- Explain various problems that arise from applying the linear regression model to data, including multicollinearity, specification errors, heteroskedasticity, nonstationarity and autocorrelation.
