Week 4 Practice Problem #1

Team

Below is a problem that you may see on the Final Exam or the Quiz:

Which of the following violates the assumptions of regression analysis?

· The error term does not have the normal distribution.

· The error term has a constant variance.

· The error term is uncorrelated with an explanatory variable.

· The error term has a zero mean.

I chose the 1st option because there are 4 assumptions of Regression Analysis and the 1st option does not align to the 4 assumptions:

1. There is a linear relationship between the Independent and the Dependent Variable

2. There is a statistical indepedendence of errors

3. Homoscedasticity of the errors which means there is a constant variance

4. The Error does follow the Normal Distribution

What does the term Homoscedasticity mean?

Week 4 Practice Problem #2

Team

Below is a problem that you may see on the Final Exam or on the Quiz

In the sample regression equation what is ?

· The value of y when x = 0

· The y-intercept

· The predicted value of y, given a specific x value

· The slope of the equation

Why would I have chosen the 3rd option? What is the relationship between X (the Independent Variable) and Y (the Dependent Variable)?

Week 4 Practice Problem #3

Team

Below is a problem that you may see on the Final or on the Quiz

What type of relationship is indicated in the scatterplot?

· A positive linear or curvilinear relationship

· A negative linear relationship

· No relationship

· A negative curvilinear relationship

I picked the 1st option, because a positive relationship is illustrated on a Scatter Plot when the data points move from the bottom left to the upper right. What would a Negative Relationship look like if it was illustrated?

Week 4 Practice Problem #4

Team

Below is a problem that you may see on the Final or on the Quiz:

Serial correlation is typically observed in:

· sparse data

· cross-sectional data

· time series data

· outliers

Why would I have selected Time Series Data?
