71) This guarantees that the parametrization employed is irrelevant for consistency. For example, if s 2 is a consistent estimator for σ 2 , then s is a consistent estimator for σ . Note that this result does not hold for unbiasedness, as E{s}2 = E{s 2 } (see Appendix B). 16 The non-singularity of xx requires that, asymptotically, there is no multicollinearity. The requirement that the limit is finite is a ‘regularity’ condition, which will be satisfied in most empirical applications. A sufficient condition is that the x-variables are independent drawings from the same distribution with a finite variance.

The estimate is a vector of numbers. The most widely used estimator in econometrics is the ordinary least squares (OLS) estimator. 1 applied to the available sample. The OLS estimator for β is thus given by −1 N N b= xi xi i=1 xi yi . 25), combined with a sampling scheme, b is now a vector of random variables. Our interest lies in the true unknown parameter vector β, and b is considered an approximation to it. While a given sample only produces a single estimate, we evaluate the quality of it through the properties of the underlying estimator.

E. under βk = βk0 , as before) and we reject the null hypothesis if tk is too large (note that large values for bk lead to large values for tk ). Large negative values for tk are compatible with the null hypothesis and do not lead to its rejection. Thus for this one-sided test, the critical value is determined from P {tk > tN−K;α } = α. 64. Regression packages typically report the following t-value, tk = bk , se(bk ) sometimes referred to as the t-ratio, which is the point estimate divided by its standard error.
