Describe in Detail
Discuss the practical consequences of autocorrelation. Show that
Explanation
Practical consequences of autocorrelation:

OLS estimators are still unbiased and consistent.

The variance of the estimators are underestimated. In the presence of autocorrelation , but Thus, variance of may be either over estimated or under estimated depending upon the nature of the correlation.

Prediction will be inefficient: The pr…

Appeared in Year: 2013
Describe in Detail
Discuss Engel’s curve. Explain the Engel’s curve for constant price of a demand functionwhere is national income and p is price.
Explanation
Engel’s curve: The graphic representation of the basic relationship between household income and its expenditure on a particular item of consumption is known as Engel’s curve. The Engel curves shows the effect of a change in income on the expenditure for each good at fixed prices. If price change, the result will be shift in each of the Engel cur…

Discuss simple aggregate method of Index number. Why is weighted average of price relative index preferred over simple aggregate method? Show that weighted average of price relative index number is same as that of Paasche’s index number.
Explanation
Simple aggregate method of Index number:
This method consists of expressing aggregate of prices in any year as a percentage of their aggregate i^{th} the base year. The price index, under this method is computed by the formula
Where
= Price index of the current year with reference to the base year
= Total of the prices of the current year

Describe in Detail
Obtain the correlogram for the series with, provided, , and successive values of are independent.
Explanation
It is given that
And hence
Substituting the value in we get,
Where 𝛈s are independent.
Multiplying both sides of the above equation by , taking expectations and dividing by , we get for a long series,
