The Multiple Regression Model
Idea: Examine the linear relationship between 1 dependent (Y) & 2 or more independent variables (Xi) Multiple Regression Model with k Independent Variables: Y-intercept Population slopes Random Error Statistics for Business and Economics, 6e © 2007 Pearson Education, Inc.

Multiple Regression Equation
The coefficients of the multiple regression model are estimated using sample data Multiple regression equation with k independent variables: Estimated (or predicted) value of y Estimated intercept Estimated slope coefficients In this chapter we will always use a computer to obtain the regression slope coefficients and other regression summary measures.

Multiple Regression Equation
(continued) Two variable model y Slope for variable x1 x2 Slope for variable x2 x1 Statistics for Business and Economics, 6e © 2007 Pearson Education, Inc.

Standard Multiple Regression Assumptions
The values xi and the error terms εi are independent The error terms are random variables with mean 0 and a constant variance, 2. (The constant variance property is called homoscedasticity) Statistics for Business and Economics, 6e © 2007 Pearson Education, Inc.

Standard Multiple Regression Assumptions
(continued) The random error terms, εi , are not correlated with one another, so that It is not possible to find a set of numbers, c0, c1, , ck, such that (This is the property of no linear relation for the Xj’s) Statistics for Business and Economics, 6e © 2007 Pearson Education, Inc.

Example: 2 Independent Variables
A distributor of frozen desert pies wants to evaluate factors thought to influence demand Dependent variable: Pie sales (units per week) Independent variables: Price (in \$) Advertising (\$100’s) Data are collected for 15 weeks Statistics for Business and Economics, 6e © 2007 Pearson Education, Inc.

Pie Sales Example Sales = b0 + b1 (Price) + b2 (Advertising)
Week Pie Sales Price (\$) Advertising (\$100s) 1 350 5.50 3.3 2 460 7.50 3 8.00 3.0 4 430 4.5 5 6.80 6 380 4.0 7 4.50 8 470 6.40 3.7 9 450 7.00 3.5 10 490 5.00 11 340 7.20 12 300 7.90 3.2 13 440 5.90 14 15 2.7 Multiple regression equation: Sales = b0 + b1 (Price) + b2 (Advertising) Statistics for Business and Economics, 6e © 2007 Pearson Education, Inc.

The Multiple Regression Equation
where Sales is in number of pies per week Price is in \$ Advertising is in \$100’s. b1 = : sales will decrease, on average, by pies per week for each \$1 increase in selling price, net of the effects of changes due to advertising b2 = : sales will increase, on average, by pies per week for each \$100 increase in advertising, net of the effects of changes due to price Statistics for Business and Economics, 6e © 2007 Pearson Education, Inc.

Coefficient of Determination, R2
Reports the proportion of total variation in y explained by all x variables taken together This is the ratio of the explained variability to total sample variability Statistics for Business and Economics, 6e © 2007 Pearson Education, Inc.

Estimation of Error Variance
Consider the population regression model The unbiased estimate of the variance of the errors is where The square root of the variance, se , is called the standard error of the estimate Statistics for Business and Economics, 6e © 2007 Pearson Education, Inc.

Adjusted Coefficient of Determination,
R2 never decreases when a new X variable is added to the model, even if the new variable is not an important predictor variable This can be a disadvantage when comparing models What is the net effect of adding a new variable? We lose a degree of freedom when a new X variable is added Did the new X variable add enough explanatory power to offset the loss of one degree of freedom? Statistics for Business and Economics, 6e © 2007 Pearson Education, Inc.

Adjusted Coefficient of Determination,
(continued) Used to correct for the fact that adding non-relevant independent variables will still reduce the error sum of squares (where n = sample size, K = number of independent variables) Adjusted R2 provides a better comparison between multiple regression models with different numbers of independent variables Penalize excessive use of unimportant independent variables Smaller than R2 Statistics for Business and Economics, 6e © 2007 Pearson Education, Inc.

Coefficient of Multiple Correlation
The coefficient of multiple correlation is the correlation between the predicted value and the observed value of the dependent variable Is the square root of the multiple coefficient of determination Used as another measure of the strength of the linear relationship between the dependent variable and the independent variables Comparable to the correlation between Y and X in simple regression Statistics for Business and Economics, 6e © 2007 Pearson Education, Inc.

Evaluating Individual Regression Coefficients
Use t-tests for individual coefficients Shows if a specific independent variable is conditionally important Hypotheses: H0: βj = 0 (no linear relationship) H1: βj ≠ 0 (linear relationship does exist between xj and y) Statistics for Business and Economics, 6e © 2007 Pearson Education, Inc.

Example: Form a 95% confidence interval for the effect of changes in price (x1) on pie sales: ± (2.1788)(10.832) So the interval is < β1 < Statistics for Business and Economics, 6e © 2007 Pearson Education, Inc.

Test on All Coefficients
F-Test for Overall Significance of the Model Shows if there is a linear relationship between all of the X variables considered together and Y Use F test statistic Hypotheses: H0: β1 = β2 = … = βk = 0 (no linear relationship) H1: at least one βi ≠ 0 (at least one independent variable affects Y) Statistics for Business and Economics, 6e © 2007 Pearson Education, Inc.

Tests on a Subset of Regression Coefficients
Consider a multiple regression model involving variables xj and zj , and the null hypothesis that the z variable coefficients are all zero: Statistics for Business and Economics, 6e © 2007 Pearson Education, Inc.

Tests on a Subset of Regression Coefficients
(continued) Goal: compare the error sum of squares for the complete model with the error sum of squares for the restricted model First run a regression for the complete model and obtain SSE Next run a restricted regression that excludes the z variables (the number of variables excluded is r) and obtain the restricted error sum of squares SSE(r) Compute the F statistic and apply the decision rule for a significance level  Statistics for Business and Economics, 6e © 2007 Pearson Education, Inc.

Prediction Given a population regression model
then given a new observation of a data point (x1,n+1, x 2,n+1, , x K,n+1) the best linear unbiased forecast of yn+1 is It is risky to forecast for new X values outside the range of the data used to estimate the model coefficients, because we do not have data to support that the linear model extends beyond the observed range. ^ Statistics for Business and Economics, 6e © 2007 Pearson Education, Inc.

Using The Equation to Make Predictions
Predict sales for a week in which the selling price is \$5.50 and advertising is \$350: Note that Advertising is in \$100’s, so \$350 means that X2 = 3.5 Predicted sales is pies Statistics for Business and Economics, 6e © 2007 Pearson Education, Inc.

Nonlinear Regression Models
The relationship between the dependent variable and an independent variable may not be linear Can review the scatter diagram to check for non-linear relationships Example: Quadratic model The second independent variable is the square of the first variable Statistics for Business and Economics, 6e © 2007 Pearson Education, Inc.

Model form: where: β0 = Y intercept β1 = regression coefficient for linear effect of X on Y β2 = regression coefficient for quadratic effect on Y εi = random error in Y for observation i Statistics for Business and Economics, 6e © 2007 Pearson Education, Inc.

Linear vs. Nonlinear Fit
Y Y X X X X residuals residuals Linear fit does not give random residuals Nonlinear fit gives random residuals Statistics for Business and Economics, 6e © 2007 Pearson Education, Inc.

Quadratic models may be considered when the scatter diagram takes on one of the following shapes: Y Y Y Y X1 X1 X1 X1 β1 < 0 β1 > 0 β1 < 0 β1 > 0 β2 > 0 β2 > 0 β2 < 0 β2 < 0 β1 = the coefficient of the linear term β2 = the coefficient of the squared term Statistics for Business and Economics, 6e © 2007 Pearson Education, Inc.

Testing for Significance: Quadratic Effect
Testing the Quadratic Effect Compare the linear regression estimate with quadratic regression estimate Hypotheses (The quadratic term does not improve the model) (The quadratic term improves the model) H0: β2 = 0 H1: β2  0 Statistics for Business and Economics, 6e © 2007 Pearson Education, Inc.

Testing for Significance: Quadratic Effect
(continued) Testing the Quadratic Effect Hypotheses (The quadratic term does not improve the model) (The quadratic term improves the model) The test statistic is H0: β2 = 0 H1: β2  0 where: b2 = squared term slope coefficient β2 = hypothesized slope (zero) Sb = standard error of the slope 2 Statistics for Business and Economics, 6e © 2007 Pearson Education, Inc.

Testing for Significance: Quadratic Effect
(continued) Testing the Quadratic Effect Compare R2 from simple regression to R2 from the quadratic model If R2 from the quadratic model is larger than R2 from the simple model, then the quadratic model is a better model Statistics for Business and Economics, 6e © 2007 Pearson Education, Inc.

The Log Transformation
The Multiplicative Model: Original multiplicative model Transformed multiplicative model Statistics for Business and Economics, 6e © 2007 Pearson Education, Inc.

Interpretation of coefficients
For the multiplicative model: When both dependent and independent variables are logged: The coefficient of the independent variable Xk can be interpreted as a 1 percent change in Xk leads to an estimated bk percentage change in the average value of Y bk is the elasticity of Y with respect to a change in Xk Statistics for Business and Economics, 6e © 2007 Pearson Education, Inc.

Dummy Variables A dummy variable is a categorical independent variable with two levels: yes or no, on or off, male or female recorded as 0 or 1 Regression intercepts are different if the variable is significant Assumes equal slopes for other variables If more than two levels, the number of dummy variables needed is (number of levels - 1) Statistics for Business and Economics, 6e © 2007 Pearson Education, Inc.

Dummy Variable Example
Let: y = Pie Sales x1 = Price x2 = Holiday (X2 = 1 if a holiday occurred during the week) (X2 = 0 if there was no holiday that week) Statistics for Business and Economics, 6e © 2007 Pearson Education, Inc.

Dummy Variable Example
(continued) Holiday No Holiday Different intercept Same slope y (sales) If H0: β2 = 0 is rejected, then “Holiday” has a significant effect on pie sales b0 + b2 Holiday (x2 = 1) b0 No Holiday (x2 = 0) x1 (Price) Statistics for Business and Economics, 6e © 2007 Pearson Education, Inc.

Interpreting the Dummy Variable Coefficient
Example: Sales: number of pies sold per week Price: pie price in \$ Holiday: 1 If a holiday occurred during the week 0 If no holiday occurred b2 = 15: on average, sales were 15 pies greater in weeks with a holiday than in weeks without a holiday, given the same price Statistics for Business and Economics, 6e © 2007 Pearson Education, Inc.

Interaction Between Explanatory Variables
Hypothesizes interaction between pairs of x variables Response to one x variable may vary at different levels of another x variable Contains two-way cross product terms Statistics for Business and Economics, 6e © 2007 Pearson Education, Inc.

Effect of Interaction Given:
Without interaction term, effect of X1 on Y is measured by β1 With interaction term, effect of X1 on Y is measured by β1 + β3 X2 Effect changes as X2 changes Statistics for Business and Economics, 6e © 2007 Pearson Education, Inc.

Slopes are different if the effect of x1 on y depends on x2 value
Interaction Example Suppose x2 is a dummy variable and the estimated regression equation is y 12 x2 = 1: y = 1 + 2x1 + 3(1) + 4x1(1) = 4 + 6x1 ^ 8 4 x2 = 0: y = 1 + 2x1 + 3(0) + 4x1(0) = 1 + 2x1 ^ x1 0.5 1 1.5 Slopes are different if the effect of x1 on y depends on x2 value Statistics for Business and Economics, 6e © 2007 Pearson Education, Inc.

Significance of Interaction Term
The coefficient b3 is an estimate of the difference in the coefficient of x1 when x2 = 1 compared to when x2 = 0 The t statistic for b3 can be used to test the hypothesis If we reject the null hypothesis we conclude that there is a difference in the slope coefficient for the two subgroups Statistics for Business and Economics, 6e © 2007 Pearson Education, Inc.

Multiple Regression Assumptions
Errors (residuals) from the regression model: ei = (yi – yi) < Assumptions: The errors are normally distributed Errors have a constant variance The model errors are independent Statistics for Business and Economics, 6e © 2007 Pearson Education, Inc.

Analysis of Residuals in Multiple Regression
These residual plots are used in multiple regression: Residuals vs. yi Residuals vs. x1i Residuals vs. x2i Residuals vs. time (if time series data) < Use the residual plots to check for violations of regression assumptions Statistics for Business and Economics, 6e © 2007 Pearson Education, Inc.
