Question

In testing the assumption that the successive error terms are uncorrelated, we check the Durbin-Watson test statistic. Which one of the following statements is correct?

a. If successive error terms are uncorrelated, the test statistic will be close to 2

b. If successive error terms are negatively correlated, the test statistic will be close to -1

c. If successive error terms are positively correlated, the test statistic will be close to 4

d. If successive error terms are uncorrelated, the test statistic will be close to zero

e. none of the other answers are correct

Answer #1

the correct answer is option
**(a) If successive error terms are uncorrelated,
the test statistic will be close to 2**

**Explanation:** We
know that the Durbin-Watson test statistic can be used to measure
the presence of multicollinearity or whether successive error terms
are uncorrelated. It is defined as

D-W= . and we make a decision on the basis of the following criteria as below:

- If 1.5
*≤*DW*≤*2.5 then there is no autocorrelation. - If 0
*<*DW*<*1.5 then there is positive autocorrelation. - If 2.5
*<*DW*<*4 then there is a negative autocorrelation.

Thus, from the above statement is clear that if successive error terms are uncorrelated i.e no multicollinearity then the value of DW i.e. test statistic will be close to 2.

1) Which is NOT a fundamental assumption of OLS (Ordinary Least
Squares)?

error term are uncorrelated with each other.
c) No independent variable is a
perfect linear function of any other explanatory variables.
d) The error term has
homoscedasticity.
e) All independent variables will be uncorrelated
with the error term.

1. Which of the following statements are true of One-way
ANOVA test?
a. It is a robust test (with sufficiently large samples and
relatively equal groups) even when the sample data are
statistically significantly different from normal distribution.
b. All of the other statements are correct.
c. It involves a dependent variable measured on a continuous
scale.
d. It involves an independent variable measured on a categorical
scale with 2+ groups/categories.
e.It compares the mean/average scores of the 2+ groups...

A high-risk group of 814 male volunteers was included in a
major clinical trial for testing a new vaccine for type B
hepatitis. The vaccine was given to 367 persons randomly selected
from the group, and the others were injected with a neutral
substance (placebo). 16 of the vaccinated people and 37 of the
nonvaccinated ones later got the disease.
We wish to test the hypothesis that the probability of getting type
B hepatitis is different (higher or lower) for...

T F 1. A p-value of .008 in hypothesis testing means there is
only a .8% chance we could get such sample statistics from the
population if the null hypothesis is as stated. Such an event is
considered unlikely and we would reject the null hypothesis.
T F 2. As a general rule in hypothesis testing, it is always
safer to set up your alternate hypothesis with a greater-than or
less-than orientation.
_____3. If the level of significance is .02...

1) When we fit a model to data, which is typically larger?
a) Test Error b) Training Error
2) What are reasons why test error could be LESS than training
error? (Pick all that applies)
a) By chance, the test set has easier cases than the training
set.
b) The model is highly complex, so training error systematically
overestimates test error
c) The model is not very complex, so training error
systematically overestimates test error

Suppose we have a left-tailed hypothesis test about µ conducted
at α = 0.10. If the sample size is n = 7, what is the correct
rejection region?
Group of answer choices
t > 1.440
z > 1.28
z < -1.28
t < -1.440

Danny was recently hired by Mr. Peanut to demonstrate (at α =
0.05) that less than 50% of Mr. Peanuts’ Mixed Nuts are peanuts.
Danny randomly sampled 120 mixed nuts and found that 42...

Our friend the waffle-man is back and wants to do more
hypothesis tests for proportions, but this time for four waffle
recipes. He randomly selected 250 waffle consumers and found that
100 (40%) of the 250 preferred Waffle No. 2. He conducted a
hypothesis test with
H0:p=0.25H0:p=0.25, Ha:p>0.25Ha:p>0.25.
Notice the proportion under the null distribution is p_0 = 0.25.
The test statistic for this problem is 5.47. You can verify for
yourself that the probability of observing this test statistic...

FOR QUESTIONS 83 TO 90 USE THE FOLLOWING DIRECTION: A researcher
theorizes that first-born children of African-American families are
more intelligent than other African-American children. A sample of
50 first-born children of African-American families is found to
have an average IQ of 105, while based on other studies we can
assume that IQ of other African-American children is 100 on average
and has standard deviation of 15.
What is the population of interest in this study?
A. All African-American families...

(1) A Chi-squared test is typically used to test for any of the
following except which of the following?
(A) If a mathematical model accurately predicts our observed
frequencies of data values.
(B) If a mathematical model accurately predicts the total number
of observed data values.
(C) If a mathematical model accurately predicts the pattern of
our observed data values.
(D) Whether two factors present in a population are independent
of one another.
