## CLRM Assumptions

1. 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. Conditional independence assumption
• • If this holds, there is no selection effect. (observed effect = causal effect)
4. Zero serial correlation in the errors
5. homoskedasticity, or constant conditional variance of the residual term
6. errors are normally distributed with a mean zero and constant variance.
