1 Inference in Regression Analysis Dr. Frank Wood
2 Inference in the Normal Error Regression Model Y i = β 0 + β 1 X i + ɛ i Y i value of the response variable in the i th trial β 0 and β 1 are parameters X i is a known constant, the value of the predictor variable in the i th trial ɛ i iid N(0, σ 2 ) i = 1,..., n
3 Inference concerning β 1 Tests concerning β 1 (the slope) are often of interest, particularly H 0 : β 1 = 0 H a : β1 0 the null hypothesis model Y i = β 0 + (0)X i + ɛ i implies that there is no relationship between Y and X. Note the means of all the Y i s are equal at all levels of X i.
4 Quick Review : Hypothesis Testing Elements of a statistical test Null hypothesis, H 0 Alternative hypothesis, Ha Test statistic Rejection region
5 Quick Review : Hypothesis Testing  Errors Errors A type I error is made if H 0 is rejected when H 0 is true. The probability of a type I error is denoted by α. The value of α is called the level of the test. A type II error is made if H0 is accepted when H a is true. The probability of a type II error is denoted by β.
6 Pvalue The pvalue, or attained significance level, is the smallest level of significance α for which the observed data indicate that the null hypothesis should be rejected.
7 Null Hypothesis If the null hypothesis is that β 1 = 0 then b 1 should fall in the range around zero. The further it is from 0 the less likely the null hypothesis is to hold.
8 Alternative Hypothesis : Least Squares Fit If we find that our estimated value of b 1 deviates from 0 then we have to determine whether or not that deviation would be surprising given the model and the sampling distribution of the estimator. If it is sufficiently (where we define what sufficient is by a confidence level) different then we reject the null hypothesis.
9 Testing This Hypothesis Only have a finite sample Different finite set of samples (from the same population / source) will (almost always) produce different point estimates of β 0 and β 1 (b 0, b 1 ) given the same estimation procedure Key point: b 0 and b 1 are random variables whose sampling distributions can be statistically characterized Hypothesis tests about β 0 and β 1 can be constructed using these distributions. The same techniques for deriving the sampling distribution of b = [b 0, b 1 ] are used in multiple regression.
10 Sampling Dist. Of b 1 The point estimator for b 1 is b 1 = (Xi X )(Y i Ȳ ) (Xi X ) 2 The sampling distribution for b 1 is the distribution of b 1 that arises from the variability of b 1 when the predictor variables X i are held fixed and the errors are repeatedly sampled Note that the sampling distribution we derive for b 1 will be highly dependent on our modeling assumptions.
11 Sampling Dist. Of b 1 In Normal Regr. Model For a normal error regression model the sampling distribution of b 1 is normal, with mean and variance given by E{b 1 } = β 1 σ 2 {b 1 } = σ 2 (Xi X ) 2 To show this we need to go through a number of algebraic steps.
12 (Xi X )(Y i Ȳ ) = (X i X )Y i First step To show we observe (Xi X )(Y i Ȳ ) = (X i X )Y i (X i X )Ȳ = (X i X )Y i Ȳ (X i X ) = (X i X )Y i Ȳ (X i ) + Ȳ n = (X i X )Y i Xi This will be useful because the sampling distribution of the estimators will be expressed in terms of the distribution of the Y i s which are assumed to be equal to the regression function plus a random error term. n
13 b 1 as convex combination of Y i s b 1 can be expressed as a linear combination of the Y i s b 1 = (Xi X )(Y i Ȳ ) (Xi X ) 2 = (Xi X )Y i (Xi X ) 2 from previous slide = k i Y i where k i = (X i X ) (Xi X ) 2 Now the estimator is simply a convex combination of the Y i s which makes computing its analytic sampling distribution simple.
14 Properties of the k i s It can be shown (using simple algebraic operations) that ki = 0 ki X i = 1 k 2 i = 1 (Xi X ) 2 (possible homework). We will use these properties to prove various properties of the sampling distributions of b 1 and b 0.
15 Normality of b 1 s Sampling Distribution Reminder: useful fact: A linear combination of independent normal random variables is normally distributed More formally: when Y1,..., Y n are independent normal random variables, the linear combination a 1 Y 1 + a 2 Y a n Y n is normally distributed, with mean ai E{Y i } and variance ai 2 σ 2 {Y i }
16 Normality of b 1 s Sampling Distribution Since b 1 is a linear combination of the Y i s and each Y i = β 1 X i + β 0 + e i is (conditioned on X i, β 1, and β 0 ) an independent normal random variable, then then distribution of b 1 under sampling of the errors is normal as well b 1 = k i Y i, k i = (X i X ) (Xi X ) 2 From previous slide E{b 1 } = k i E{Y i }, σ 2 {b 1 } = ki 2 σ 2 {Y i } This means b 1 N(E{b 1 }, σ 2 {b 1 }). To use this we must know E{b 1 } and σ 2 {b 1 }.
17 b 1 is an unbiased estimator This can be seen using two of the properties E{b 1 } = E{ k i Y i } = k i E{Y i } = k i (β 0 + β 1 X i ) = β 0 ki + β 1 ki X i = β 0 (0) + β 1 (1) = β 1 So now we know the mean of the sampling distribution of b 1 and conveniently (importantly) it s centered on the true value of the unknown quantity β 1 (the slope of the linear relationship).
18 Variance of b 1 Since the Y i are independent random variables with variance σ 2 and the k i s are constants we get σ 2 {b 1 } = σ 2 { k i Y i } = k 2 i σ 2 {Y i } = ki 2 σ 2 = σ 2 ki 2 = σ 2 1 (Xi X ) 2 and now we know the variance of the sampling distribution of b 1. This means that we can write b 1 N(β 1, σ 2 (Xi X ) 2 ) How does this behave as a function of σ 2 and the spread of the X i s? Is this intuitive? Note: this assumes that we know σ 2. Can we?
19 Estimated variance of b 1 When we don t know σ 2 then one thing that we can do is to replace it with the MSE estimate of the same Let where s 2 = MSE = SSE n 2 SSE = e 2 i and e i = Y i Ŷi plugging in we get σ 2 {b 1 } = s 2 {b 1 } = σ 2 (Xi X ) 2 s 2 (Xi X ) 2
20 Recap We now have an expression for the sampling distribution of b 1 when σ 2 is known b 1 N (β 1, σ 2 (Xi X ) 2 ) (1) When σ 2 is unknown we have an unbiased point estimator of σ 2 s 2 s 2 {b 1 } = (Xi X ) 2 As n (i.e. the number of observations grows large) s 2 {b 1 } σ 2 {b 1 } and we can use Eqn. 1. Questions When is n big enough? What if n isn t big enough?
21 Sampling Distribution of (b 1 β 1 )/s{b 1 }? b 1 is normally distributed so (b 1 β 1 )/( σ 2 {b 1 }) is a standard normal variable. Why? We don t know σ 2 {b 1 } because we don t know σ 2 so it must be estimated from data. We have already denoted it s estimate s 2 {b 1 } If using the estimate s 2 {b 1 } we will show that b 1 β 1 s{b 1 } t(n 2) where s{b 1 } = s 2 {b 1 }
22 Where does this come from? For now we need to rely upon the following theorem: Cochran s Theorem For the normal error regression model and is independent of b 0 and b 1 SSE (Yi Ŷ i ) 2 σ 2 = σ 2 χ 2 (n 2) Intuitively this follows the standard result for the sum of squared normal random variables Here there are two linear constraints imposed by the regression parameter estimation that each reduce the number of degrees of freedom by one. We will revisit this subject soon.
23 Another useful fact : Studentt distribution A definition: Let z and χ 2 (ν) be independent random variables (standard normal and χ 2 respectively). The following random variable is defined to be a tdistributed random variable: t(ν) = z χ 2 (ν) ν This version of the t distribution has one parameter, the degrees of freedom ν
24 Distribution of the studentized statistic b 1 β 1 s{b 1 } Is a socalled studentized statistic. t(n 2) To derive the distribution of this statistic, first we do the following rewrite b 1 β 1 s{b 1 } = where b 1 β 1 σ{b 1 } s{b 1 } σ{b 1 } s{b 1 } σ{b 1 } = s 2 {b 1 } σ 2 {b 1 }
25 Studentized statistic cont. And note the following s 2 {b 1 } σ 2 {b 1 } = MSE P (Xi X ) 2 σ 2 P (Xi X ) 2 = MSE σ 2 = SSE σ 2 (n 2) where we know (by the given simple version of Cochran s theorem) that the distribution of the last term is χ 2 and indep. of b 1 and b 0 SSE σ 2 (n 2) χ2 (n 2) n 2
26 Studentized statistic final But by the given definition of the t distribution we have our result b 1 β 1 s{b 1 } t(n 2) because putting everything together we can see that b 1 β 1 s{b 1 } z χ 2 (n 2) n 2
27 Confidence Intervals and Hypothesis Tests Now that we know the sampling distribution of b 1 (t with n2 degrees of freedom) we can construct confidence intervals and hypothesis tests easily Things to think about What does the tdistribution look like? Why is the estimator distributed according to a tdistribution rather than a normal distribution? When performing tests why does this matter? When is it safe to cheat and use a normal approximation?
