violations of gm assumptions
Violations of GM Assumptions

Assumption Violation

Wrong functional form

Omit Relevant Variable (Include Irrelevant Var)

Errors in Variables

Sample selection bias, Simultaneity bias

“well-specified model” (1) & (5)

constant, nonzero mean due to systematically +/- measurement error in Y

can only assess theoretically

zero conditional mean of errors (2)

Homoskedastic errors (3)

Heteroskedastic errors

No serial correlation in errors (4)

There exists serial correlation in errors

detection the durbin watson test
Detection: The Durbin-Watson Test
  • Provides a way to test H0:  = 0
  • It is a test for the presence of first-order serial correlation
  • The alternative hypothesis can be
    •   0
    •  > 0: positive serial correlation
      • Most likely alternative in economics
    •  < 0: negative serial correlation
  • DW Test statistic is d
detection the durbin watson test1
Detection: The Durbin-Watson Test
  • To test for positive serial correlation with the Durbin-Watson statistic, under the null we expect d to be near 2
    • The smaller d, the more likely the alternative hypothesis

The sampling distribution

of d depends on the values of the explanatory variables. Since every problem has a different set of explanatory variables, Durbin and Watson derived upper and lower limits

for the critical value of the test.

detection the durbin watson test2
Detection: The Durbin-Watson Test
  • Durbin and Watson derived upper and lower limits such that d1d* du
  • They developed the following decision rule
detection the durbin watson test3
Detection: The Durbin-Watson Test
  • To test for negative serial correlation the decision rule is
  • Can use a two-tailed test if there is no strong prior belief about whether there is positive or negative serial correlation—the decision rule is
serial correlation

Serial Correlation

serial correlation example

Serial Correlation Example

What is the effect of the price of oil on the number of wells drilled in the U.S.?

serial correlation example2

Serial Correlation Example

Analyze residual plots … but be careful …

serial correlation example3

Serial Correlation Example

Remember what serial correlation is …

  • This plot only “works” if obs number is in same order as the unit of time
serial correlation example4

Serial Correlation Example

Same graph when plot versus “year”

  • Graphical evidence of serial correlation
serial correlation example5

Serial Correlation Example

Calculate DW test statistic

Compare to critical value at chosen sig level

dlower or dupper for 1 X-var & n = 62 not in table

dlower for 1 X-var & n = 60 is 1.55, dupper = 1.62

  • Since .192 < 1.55, reject H0:  = 0 in favor of H1:  > 0 at α=5%
