1. In addition to the OLS estimates, identical to those presented before, we now also know something about the accuracy of the estimates, as reflected in the reported standard errors. 11. Combined with the normal distribution, this allows us to make statements about β2 . For example, we can test the hypothesis that β2 = 0. If this is the case, the wage differential between males and females in our sample is nonzero only by chance. 5 discusses how to test hypotheses regarding β. 4 Goodness-of-fit Having estimated a particular linear model, a natural question that comes up is: how well does the estimated regression line fit the observations?

Using this, the R 2 can be rewritten as R2 = 1 − 2 1/(N − 1) N Vˆ {ei } i=1 ei =1− . 41) shows how the sample variance of yi can be decomposed into the sum of the sample variances of two orthogonal components: the predictor yˆi and the residual ei . The R 2 thus indicates which proportion of the sample variation in yi is explained by the model. 42) are equivalent. Moreover, in this case it can be shown that 0 ≤ R 2 ≤ 1. Only if all ei = 0 it holds that R 2 = 1, while the R 2 is zero if the model does not explain anything in addition to the sample mean of yi .

16 The non-singularity of xx requires that, asymptotically, there is no multicollinearity. The requirement that the limit is finite is a ‘regularity’ condition, which will be satisfied in most empirical applications. A sufficient condition is that the x-variables are independent drawings from the same distribution with a finite variance. Violations typically occur in time series contexts where one or more of the x-variables may be trended. We shall return to this issue in Chapters 8 and 9. 17 Unless indicated otherwise, lim and plim refer to the (probability) limit for the sample size N going to infinity (N → ∞).
