Describe in Detail

Define multicollinearity. What are the causes of multicollinearity? How will you detect the same and solve it?

Explanation

Multicollinearity: Implies predictors that are correlated with other predictors in the model. Here two or more predictor variables in a multiple regression model are highly correlated and implies that one can be linearly predicted from the others with a substantial degree of accuracy.

Causes of multicollinearity:

  • Inaccurate use of dummy… (306 more words) …

Discuss second order autoregressive series. For this series, obtain complementary function (CF) only.

Explanation

Second order autoregressive series:

Sometimes, the values of a time series data are highly correlated with the values that precede and succeed them. i. e. , The value of a time series at any time “t” may depend upon its own value at times t-1, t-2, …, t-k, the relationship… (308 more words) …

Describe in Detail

If U=cxαyβ is an individual’s utility function of two goods, show that the demand for the goods is x=αα+βμpx and y=βα+βμpy

Where px and px are the fixed price and µ be the individual fixed income.

Explanation

For consumer’s equilibrium, we have

1px.ux=1py.uy

U=cxαyβ and hence, we get

1px.cαxα1yβ=1py… (182 more words) …

Describe in Detail

Discuss the effect of imperfect multicollinearity on tests and errors. Consider a model

y=β0+β1X1+β2X2+(ee̅) with

X1=X2=0 and X2=θX1+V with

x12=x22=1 , X1X2=θ , V=0

and X1V=0

Do you think multicollinearity is present in the model? If yes, give reasons. Further show that as

θ increases, V(β^i) also increases.

Explanation

Effect of imperfect multicollinearity on tests and errors:

  1. OLS estimators will be BLUE, but they have large variances and covariances. this makes the estimation difficult.

  2. The confidence intervals will be wider. and hence, we may not reject the ’zero null hypothesis i. e. , We may conclude that B’s are… (522 more words) …
