If we assume the difference between college and high school is four years, the college graduate sleeps about 45 minutes less per week, other things equal. The other slope parameters have a similar interpretation. More download links: Another is marital status and whether the person has children. On the other, family incomes are also higher negatively correlated. Log In Sign Up.

Therefore, if we change study, we must change at least one of the other categories so that the sum is still This holds for every observation, ii From part i , we can write, say, study as a perfect linear function of the other so MLR.

If we are holding sleep and work fixed but increasing study by one hour, then we must be reducing leisure by one hour. The other slope parameters have a similar interpretation. Further, the assumption, MLR.

Only if there is a perfect linear relationship among two or more explanatory variables is MLR. However, it does not allow us to distinguish homes where each room is large from homes where each room is small. We can use Table 3. As usual, we must plug in the true model for yi: Given the definition of szx, this is what we wanted to show. The standard error is smaller than the simple regression equation because one more explanatory variable is included in the second regression. The SSR falls from The degrees of freedom also falls by one, which affects the standard error.

Therefore, the standard error for the coefficient of years in the multiple regression is smaller than its simple regression. On the other, family incomes are also higher negatively correlated.

The effect of cigarette smoking is slightly smaller when faminc is added to the regression, but the difference is not great.

This is due to the fact that cigs and faminc are not very correlated, and the coefficient on faminc is practically small. Here, profits are measured in millions, so if profits increases by about only 3.

However, remember that we are holding sales and market value fixed. This means that one more year as CEO increases predicted salary by about 1. As we know, this causes no bias in the OLS estimators, although it can cause their variances to be large. Given the fairly substantial correlation between market value and firm profits, it is not too surprising that the latter adds nothing to explaining CEO salaries.

Also, profits is a short term measure of how the firm is doing, while mktval is based on past, current, and expected future profitability. Notice that the R-squared from the above regression is below that in 3. The signs of the estimated slopes imply that more spending increases the pass rate holding lnchprg fixed and a higher poverty rate proxied well by lnchprg decreases the pass rate holding spending fixed. These are what we expect. This makes sense, especially in in Michigan, where school funding was essentially determined by local property tax collections.

Intuitively, failing to account for the poverty rate leads to an overestimate of the effect of spending. The R-squared is now about. Therefore, the variables giftlast and propresp help to explain significantly more variation in gifts in the sample although still just over eight percent. The simple regression estimate is 2. Remember, the simple regression estimate holds no other factors fixed.

The simple regression estimate is 2. Remember, the simple regression estimate holds no other factors fixed. Such an propresp, which means a 10 percentage point increase. Then, gift is estimated to be Instead, consider a. A negative relationship makes some sense, as people might follow a large donation with a smaller one.

The percentage of children not in the married-couples families has a negative impact on percentage of satisfactory level of 4th grade math. The effect of single parenthood seem small.

If, say, pctsgle increases by.

The coefficient of pctsgle has negatively increased from This means that, as the percentage of children not in married couples increases, the percentage of satisfactory level of 4th grade math decreases. This is the expected relationship because as the median income increases, the eligibility of the free lunch decreases.

By comparing the three variables, it is very clear that the variable free has the highest VIF. No, this knowledge does not affect the model to study the causal effect of single parenthood on math performance. More download links:
