The income and price elasticities seem plausible.

============================================================ Dependent Variable: LGHOUS Method: Least Squares Sample: 1959 2003 Included observations: 45 ============================================================ Variable Coefficient Std. Error t-Statistic Prob. ============================================================ C 0.005625 0.167903 0.033501 0.9734 LGDPI 1.031918 0.006649 155.1976 0.0000 LGPRHOUS -0.483421 0.041780 -11.57056 0.0000 ============================================================ R-squared 0.998583 Mean dependent var 6.359334 Adjusted R-squared 0.998515 S.D. dependent var 0.437527 S.E. of regression 0.016859 Akaike info criter-5.263574 Sum squared resid 0.011937 Schwarz criterion -5.143130 Log likelihood 121.4304 F-statistic 14797.05 Durbin-Watson stat 0.633113 Prob(F-statistic) 0.000000 ============================================================ 3 HOUSING DYNAMICS However, the Breusch–Godfrey and Durbin–Watson statistics both indicate autocorrelation at a high significance level. Breusch–Godfrey statistic: 20.02 critical value of 2 (1), 0.1%, is 10.83

4 HOUSING DYNAMICS The residuals exhibit a classic pattern of strong positive autocorrelation.

5 HOUSING DYNAMICS The actual and fitted values of the dependent variable and the series for income and price have been added to the diagram. The price series was very flat and so had little influence on the fitted values. It will be ignored in the discussion that follows.

6 HOUSING DYNAMICS There was a very large negative residual in 1973. We will enlarge this part of the diagram and take a closer look.

7 HOUSING DYNAMICS In 1973, income (right scale) grew unusually rapidly. The fitted value of housing expenditure (left scale, with actual value) accordingly rose above its trend.

8 HOUSING DYNAMICS This boom was stopped in its tracks by the first oil shock. Income actually declined in 1974, the only fall in the entire sample period.

9 HOUSING DYNAMICS As a consequence, the fitted value of housing expenditure would also have fallen in 1974. In actual fact it rose a little because the real price of housing fell relatively sharply in 1974.

10 HOUSING DYNAMICS However, the actual value of housing maintained its previous trend in those two years, responding not at all to the short-run variations in the growth of income. This accounts for the gap that opened up in 1973, and the large negative residual in that year.

11 HOUSING DYNAMICS There was a similar large negative residual in 1984. We will enlarge this part of the diagram.

12 HOUSING DYNAMICS Income grew unusually rapidly in 1984. As a consequence, the fitted value of housing also grew rapidly. However the actual value of housing grew at much the same rate as previously. Hence the negative residual.

13 HOUSING DYNAMICS In the years immediately after 1984, income grew at a slower rate. Accordingly the fitted value of housing grew at a slower rate. But the actual value of housing grew at much the same rate as before, turning the negative residual in 1984 into a large positive one in 1987.

14 HOUSING DYNAMICS Finally, we shall take a closer look at the series of positive residuals from 1960 to 1965.

15 HOUSING DYNAMICS In the first part of this subperiod, income was growing relatively slowly. Towards the end, it started to accelerate. The fitted values followed suit.

16 HOUSING DYNAMICS However, the actual values maintained a constant trend. Because it was unresponsive to the variations in the growth rate of income, a gap opened up in the middle, giving rise to the positive residuals.

17 HOUSING DYNAMICS In this case, as in the previous two, the residuals are not being caused by autocorrelation. If that were the case, the actual values should be relatively volatile, compared with the trend of the fitted values.

18 HOUSING DYNAMICS What we see here is exactly the opposite. The actual values have a very stable trend, while the fitted values respond, as they must, to short-run variations in the growth of income. The pattern we see in the residuals is caused by the nonresponse of the actual values.

19 HOUSING DYNAMICS One way to model the inertia in the growth rate of the actual values is to add a lagged dependent variable to the regression model.

Here is the regression with the lagged dependent variable added to the model.

Of course, since we have a lagged dependent variable in the model, we should look at the h statistic instead.

It is 0.66, and so now we do not reject the null hypothesis of no autocorrelation at the 5% significance level (critical value 1.96). Strictly speaking, of course, the test is valid only in large samples.

Previous expenditure is clearly very important as well.

We have already seen the reason for this in the sequence that discussed the dynamics inherent in a partial adjustment model.
