Introductory Econometrics

This chapter discusses how to accurately estimate the values of β and α from b and a. Regression produces an estimate of the standard deviation of εi. This, in turn, serves as the basis for estimates of the standard deviations of b and a. With these, we can construct confidence intervals for β and α and test hypotheses about their values.

Keywords:   regression analysis, estimation, standard deviation, confidence intervals, hypothesis tests
