CLRM Assumptions

  1. E[\epsilon]=0 holds whenever there is an intercept, it means the error term is zero, on average.
  2. No perfect multicollinearity and all Xs must exhibit some variation (MLR)
    • *No perfect linear relationship between the Xs
    • *The higher the variation in independent variables, the lower the variance of estimators. To increase variation, increase the sample size.
  3. E[\epsilon| X_1, X_2, ..., X_k]=0 Conditional independence assumption
    • E[\epsilon| X_1, X_2, ..., X_k]=E[\epsilon] =0
    • If this holds, there is no selection effect. (observed effect = causal effect)
  4. Cov(\epsilon_i, \epsilon_j | X_1, ..., X_k) =0 Zero serial correlation in the errors
  5. V(\epsilon | X_1, ... ,X_k) = \sigma^2  homoskedasticity, or constant conditional variance of the residual term
  6. \epsilon | X_1, ... , X_k ~ N (0, \sigma^2)  errors are normally distributed with a mean zero and constant variance.

Question A

Suppose one is interested in measuring the impact  of participation  in  preschool  between ages 0 and 3 (Pi a dummy variable which takes value 1 if an individual ever participated in preschool between the ages of O and 3, and which takes value O otherwise) on mathematics test scores measured at age 12 (Mi). Therefore, one could think of running the following regression:

  1. In a given dataset where we observe M and P for a cross section of individuals, should we expect P and u to be uncorrelated?  Explain your answer.  Should we expect  the  OLS estimate of β to be unbiased? Explain. [6 points]
  2. What is the  expression  of the  estimator for βif you use the  procedure  you  described  in part 2 of this question. Is it unbiased? If yes, show why. If not, show the  expression  for  the  [6 points]
  3. Suppose now that compliance with the lottery was perfect, which means that every child offered a place accepted it, and none of the children rejected in the public sector ever enrolled in preschool. Would you be able to get an unbiased estimate of β estimating the model in part 1 of this question? Why, or why not? [5 points]
