...?**Econometrics** Regression Model Question A The other hypothesis to be investigated by this regression was weather the level of education of women had an impact on their level of availability or participation in the work place. This was to be monitored using the coefficient educ. The availability and increase of other sources of income for the family was also considered to find out weather the same affected their level of commitment at work. This was done using the variable nwifeinc. The estimated coefficients had the signs as expected and were of **statistical** significance, this was demonstrated clearly buy the patterns displayed by the respective graphs of the variable coefficients. It therefore...

...?Starbuck’s Foreign Direct Investment Expansion through Licensing Format Starbucks was founded in 1971 as a small coffee store in Seattle’s Pike Place market. By 1992, when it went public, it had become a national phenomenon and was expanding at a break-neck pace (Pride, Hughes & Kapoor, 2009). Patterson et al. (2010) write that the **two** main reason Starbucks was able to become an international phenomenon are: Firstly, unlike any other coffee brand Starbucks was able to Americanize the European coffee-drinking tradition. Secondly, Starbucks did not just sell coffee, they sold an experience (2010, p. 41) Starbucks has laid significant emphasis on consistency of product, atmosphere and services across their stores globally....

.... According Krasner (34), exposing children with learning impairments to a second language simultaneously with the primary language lowers the quantity of vocabulary that the children can learn within a certain period of time. For instance, if a ‘normal’ toddler’s cognitive ability can withstand learning of an estimated 20 new vocabularies in a month, when he or she is introduced to **two** languages at the same time their learning capacity might reduce by half. A child with learning disability, depending on the gravity of the condition would learn fewer words than what a ‘normal’ child can do (Woodcock and Vialle 27). Apart from fewer input and understanding of new words, children learning second language may experience...

...in the dependent variable are explained by changes in the independent variables. Including an insignificant variable as one of the independent variables may minimize the effects of the actual variable causing the variation in the independent variable. Like in the example above, if truly age is not a determinant of income as stated in equation 1, then including it like in equations 2 and 3 will minimize the actual effects of education on income.

...characteristics specific to each stratum.
3. Sampling error occurs when the researcher tries to conclude about the population characteristics after studying the significance of the outcomes on carrying out the tests on the samples from the population.
**4**. A reliability check is that which finds out if the results so obtained from conducting a study on a sample drawn from a population remains the same when a within-sample test is conducted. On the other hand, validity tests are meant to find out if the topic or subject of research has really been adhered to while gathering information to carry on with the research work.

.... This is demonstrated in table 23 below.
Just like the above case the lag length was selected using the Ng and Perron method. The most appropriate model that should be employed is the one where no intercept and trend are included since the models do not exhibit unit root.
Question one (d)
From the above results it is evident that the unit root does not exist when intercept and trend are not included in the model whether the first difference is obtained or not. This means that the original data is **statistically** significant and hence should be employed in economic analysis.
Question **two** (a)
The stationary transformation of the log consumption and log GDP are as demonstrated in figure 3 and...

...CORRELATION DOES NOT IMPLY CAUSATION To every scientist, “correlation does not imply causation.” In fact, it is possible that **two** variables can show the same tendency of quantitative variability despite the fact that there exists no logical and natural relationship between them. On the other side, **two** variables may trend together as a result of same confounding conditions that cause change in both of them. However, the misguided assumption of causality is the greatest source of error that can occur during the interpretation of results of correlation analysis. The following article can be used to describe a situation where author incorrectly infers causation from correlation.

...work Finance and Accounting **Econometrics** Question Model2 (Model 2) read = 419.7 – 18.6 * noroom – 50.0 * noeng + 29.4 * fiction
N = 11984, R2 = 0.204
(1.7) (2.6) (3.1) (0.6)
Interpretation of the coefficient for noroom
Because noroom is one of the continuous variables, its coefficient is represented by -18.6 which is a constant. If the value of noroom increases, the model value reduces
Hypothesis test
In order to test for the hypothesis, we use t test as follows
t = (1.7-2.6)/(3.1/SQRT(18.6)) =
The t score is less than 0.5 at the 5% significance level (Dougherty, 2008). This confirms the null hypothesis, that the parameter is -20 against the alternative hypothesis that the parameter is greater than -20.
Question 2
