1 Discussion Section 4 ECON 139/ Summer Term II 1. Let s use the CollegeDistance.csv data again. (a) An education advocacy group argues that, on average, a person s educational attainment would increase by approximately 0.15 years in distance to the nearest college decreased by 20 miles. Run a regression of years of completed education (ED) on distance to the nearest college (Dist). Is the advocacy group s claim consistent with the estimated regression? Explain. Solution: the regression model: ED = β 0 + β 1 dist + u the predicted change in ED when dist changes by dist: ED = β 1 dist the argument we want to test: 0.15 = β 1 ( 2) (Note: dist in 10 miles) the null hypothesis: H 0 : β 1 = use "D:\econ139\collegedistance.dta", clear. reg ed dist, robust F( 1, 3794) = R-squared = Root MSE = dist _cons test dist= ( 1) dist = F( 1, 3794) = 0.01 Prob > F = We cannot reject H 0. The advocacy group s claim is consistent with the estimated regression.

2 (b) Other factors also affect how much college a person completes. Does controlling for these other factors change the estimated effect of distance on college years completed? For example, run a regression of ED on Dist, F emale, Black, Hispanic, Bytest, DadColl, M omcoll, Ownhome,Cue80, Stwmf g80, T uition and IncomeHi. Solution:. reg ed dist female black hispanic bytest dadcoll momcoll ownhome cue80 stwmfg80 tuition incomehi, robust F( 12, 3783) = R-squared = Root MSE = dist female black hispanic bytest dadcoll momcoll ownhome cue stwmfg tuition incomehi _cons (c) It has been argued that, controlling for other factors, blacks and Hispanics complete more college than whites. Is this consistent with the regressions that you constructed in part (b)? Page 2

3 Solution:. test black hispanic ( 1) black = 0 ( 2) hispanic = 0 F( 2, 3783) = test black= hispanic ( 1) black - hispanic = 0 F( 1, 3783) = 0.02 Prob > F = The coefficients on blacks and Hispanics are individually significant and jointly significant. They are also positve, so blacks and Hispanics complete more college than whites, holding other factors constant. We can also test if these effects are equal. We cannot reject the null hypothesis that the two coefficients are equal. (d) Test whether β tuition = β ownhome = 0. Solution:. test tuition ownhome ( 1) tuition = 0 ( 2) ownhome = 0 F( 2, 3783) = 4.42 Prob > F = We can reject the null at 5% significance level, but cannot reject the null at 1% significance level. (e) If Dist increases from 20 miles to 30 miles, how are years of education expected to change? If Dist increases from 60 to 70 miles, how are years of education expected to change? Page 3

4 Solution: Since the model is linear in Dist, the marginal effect of Dist on ED is constant, If Dist increases from 20 miles to 30 miles, ED is expected to decrease by If Dist increases from 60 miles to 70 miles, ED is expected to decrease by (f) Run a regression of ED on Dist, Dist 2, F emale, Black, Hispanic, Bytest, DadColl, M omcoll, Ownhome,Cue80, Stwmf g80, T uition and IncomeHi. If Dist increases from 20 miles to 30 miles, how are years of education expected to change? If Dist increases from 60 to 70 miles, how are years of education expected to change? Solution:. gen dist2=dist^2. reg ed dist dist2 female black hispanic bytest dadcoll momcoll ownhome cue80 stwmfg80 tuition incomehi, robust F( 13, 3782) = R-squared = Root MSE = dist dist female black hispanic bytest dadcoll momcoll ownhome cue stwmfg tuition Page 4

5 incomehi _cons dis -.081* *3^2-(-.081* *2^2) dis -.081* *7^2-(-.081* *6^2) (g) Do you prefer the regression that is linear in Dist or the one that is quadratic in Dist? (h) Consider a Hispanic female with T uition = \$950, Bytest = 58, Incomehi = 0, Ownhome = 0, DadColl = 1, MomColl = 1, Cue80 = 7.1, and Stwmfg80 = \$ Plot the regression relation between Dist and ED for Dist in the range of 0 to 100 miles. Describe the similarities and differences between the estimated regression functions. Would your answer change if you plotted the regression function for a white male with the same characteristics? Solution: Generate one more observation:. edit - preserve - set obs replace female = 1 in replace black = 0 in replace hispanic = 1 in replace bytest = 58 in replace dadcoll = 1 in replace momcoll = 1 in replace ownhome = 0 in replace cue80 = 7.1 in replace stwmfg80 = in replace dist = 0 in replace dist2 = 0 in replace tuition =.950 in replace incomehi = 0 in 3797 Then, predict the value for the new observation when Dist = 0.. reg ed dist female black hispanic bytest dadcoll momcoll Page 5

(i) Add the interaction term DadColl M omcoll to the regression. What does the coefficient on the interaction term measure? Page 7

8 Solution:. gen dadmom= dadcoll* momcoll. reg ed dist dist2 female black hispanic bytest dadcoll dadmom momcoll ownhome cue80 stwmfg80 tuition incomehi, robust F( 14, 3781) = R-squared = Root MSE = dist dist female black hispanic bytest dadcoll dadmom momcoll ownhome cue stwmfg tuition incomehi _cons (j) Is there any evidence that the effect of Dist on ED depends on the family s income? Solution:. gen incdist= incomehi*dist Page 8

12 where Φ ( ) denotes the standard normal cdf, if β 0 = 0 then P (favwin = 1 spread) = Φ (β 1 spread) and, in particular, P (favwin = 1 spread = 0) = Φ (0) =.5. This is the analog of testing whether the intercept is.5 in the LPM. The t-statistic for testing H 0 : β 0 = 0 is only about.102, so we do not reject H 0. (e) Use the probit model to estimate the probability that the favored team wins when spread = 10. Compare this with the LPM estimate from part c). Solution: When spread = 10 the predicted response probability from the estimated probit model is Φ ( (10)) = Φ (.9144) =.820 This is somewhat above the estimate for the LPM. (f) Repeat only part e) using a logit model. Solution: The logit results are. logit favwin spread Iteration 0: log likelihood = Iteration 1: log likelihood = Iteration 2: log likelihood = Iteration 3: log likelihood = Iteration 4: log likelihood = Iteration 5: log likelihood = Logit estimates Number of obs = 553 LR chi2(1) = Prob > chi2 = Log likelihood = Pseudo R2 = favwin Coef.
