3 Another look at the Variance of the Slope Estimator σ 2ˆβ 1 = 1 n var[(x i µ X )u i ] [var(x i )] 2 What makes this term small? (Figure 4.5) 1. Large n: As the sample size grows, precision of the sample mean grows. 2. Low variance of u i : randomness (other factors) are small relative to deterministic factors 3. High variance of X i : easier to discern the effect of X on Y
4 Hypothesis Testing about Regression Coefficients Why? Regression coefficients are important information for forming policy, e.g., we want to know how test score will respond to classroom size. Estimates of the regression coefficients would vary because of variation in the composition of the random sample. Thought experiment: suppose we randomly sampled 100 California school districts instead of all 420.
5 Hypothesis Testing about Regression Coefficients Here are the estimated coefficients for different samples of the data: ˆβ 1 ˆβ0 Full Sometimes the estimates based on samples of 100 districts are above the full sample (best) estimate, sometimes below.
6 Remarks Because the best estimate will use the entire sample, n, we do not have the opportunity to take different samples and see how the estimated coefficients vary. The formula for σ 2ˆβ means that we do not need to take 1 different samples. We can estimate how they would vary, if we took them, using a formula based on one sample. We need an estimator of σ 2ˆβ1, based on the data, which we will call the sample variance of ˆβ 1, ˆσ 2ˆβ1 = 1 n 1 n 2 n i=1 (X i X ) 2 û 2 i [ 1 n n i=1 (X i X ) 2] 2 The square root of this term is called the sample standard deviation of ˆβ 1, or the standard error of the estimator or SE(ˆβ 1 ).

8 Steps of Hypothesis Testing 1. Form the null hypothesis and the alternative hypothesis 2. Compute the sample parameter 3. Compute the standard error of the sample parameter 4. Compute the tstatistic t = estimator hypothesized value standard error of the estimator 5. Compute the pvalue and evalute the null hypothesis In large samples, t is normally distributed; use 2Φ( t ) to compute the pvalue for a twosided test (and 1 Φ( t ) to compute the pvalue for a onesided test).
9 Hypothesis Testing: Application to test scores Note that example differs from the book Form the null hypothesis and the alternative hypothesis The nullhypothesized value β STR,0 is 3.5 points per student. H 0 : β STR = 3.5 H 1 : β STR 3.5 Compute the sample parameter ˆβ STR = 2.28 Compute the standard error of the sample parameter SE( ˆβ STR ) = 0.52
10 Hypothesis Testing: Application to test scores Compute the tstatistic H 0 : β STR = 3.5 H 1 : β STR 3.5 t = ˆβ STR β STR,0 SE( ˆβ STR ) = 2.28 ( 3.5) 0.52 = 2.35 Compute the pvalue and evalute the null hypothesis pvalue = 2Φ( 2.35) = We can reject the null hypothesis that the schoolsize effect is as large as 3.5 points per student.
11 Confidence Intervals for a Regression Coefficient 95percent Confidence Interval set of values for a parameter that cannot be rejected using a twosided hypothesis test because the pvalue exceeds 5 percent for all of these values; or the interval that as a 95percent probability of including the true (but unknowable) value of β. The cpercent confidence interval is constructed: ˆβ ± z c SE( ˆβ) where z c is the critical value of the zscore for twosided cpercent confidence.
12 Confidence Intervals for a Regression Coefficient The 95percent confidence interval is constructed: ˆβ ± 1.96 SE( ˆβ) For example, the true value of β STR is 95percent likely to fall between the lower bound, = 3.30 and the upper bound, = 1.26 (1) or 3.30 < β STR < 1.26 with 95percent confidence. Note that with the 95percent confidence interval, we can immediately reject the null hypothesis β STR = 0.
13 Confidence Intervals for a Prediction The true value of β STR is 95percent likely to be no larger than 3.30 and no smaller than Recall that the effect on the expectation of Y (TestScore) of a change x is β x. The effect on the expectation of Y (TestScore) of a change x is 95percent likely to be no larger than 3.30 x and no smaller than 1.26 x. The formula for the lower bound is and for the upper bound is ( ˆβ SE( ˆβ 1 )) x ( ˆβ SE( ˆβ 1 )) x
14 The CI for the Effect on the Predicted Mean Suppose x = 2 students per classroom ( ˆβ 1 ± 1.96SE( ˆβ 1 )) x ( ) 2 = ( ) 2 = If every district in California were to reduce classroom size by 2 students, the average test score would increase by between 2.52 and 6.60 points with 95percent confidence. Beware application to the individual classroom!
