In particular, in a multiple linear regression model with p parameters the denominator should be n − p in order to construct an unbiased estimator of the error variance σ 2 . Detailed discussion can be found in later chapters. The unbiasness of estimator s2 for the simple linear regression can be shown in the following derivations. yi − yˆi = yi − b0 − b1 xi = yi − (¯ y − b1 x ¯) − b1 xi = (yi − y¯) − b1 (xi − x ¯) It follows that n n (yi − yˆi ) = n (yi − y¯) − b1 i=1 i=1 (xi − x ¯) = 0. i=1 Note that (yi − yˆi )xi = [(yi − y¯) − b1 (xi − x ¯)]xi , hence we have n n (yi − yˆi )xi = i=1 n = [(yi − y¯) − b1 (xi − x ¯)]xi i=1 [(yi − y¯) − b1 (xi − x ¯)](xi − x ¯) i=1 n = n (xi − x ¯)2 (yi − y¯)(xi − x ¯) − b1 i=1 i=1 Sxy Sxx = 0 Sxx To show that s2 is an unbiased estimate of the error variance, first we note that = n(Sxy − b1 Sxx ) = n Sxy − (yi − yˆi )2 = [(yi − y¯) − b1 (xi − x ¯)]2 , therefore, n n (yi − yˆi )2 = i=1 n [(yi − y¯) − b1 (xi − x ¯)]2 i=1 n 2 = (yi − y¯) − 2b1 i=1 n n (xi − x ¯)(yi − y¯i ) + i=1 (yi − y¯)2 − 2nb1 Sxy + nb21 Sxx = i=1 n (yi − y¯)2 − 2n = i=1 n (yi − y¯)2 − n = i=1 2 Sxy Sxy Sxy + n 2 Sxx Sxx Sxx 2 Sxy Sxx b21 (xi − x ¯)2 i=1 April 29, 2009 11:50 World Scientific Book - 9in x 6in Regression˙master Simple Linear Regression 17 Since (yi − y¯)2 = [β1 (xi − x ¯) + (εi − ε¯)]2 and (yi − y¯)2 = β12 (xi − x ¯)2 + (εi − ε¯)2 + 2β1 (xi − x ¯)(εi − ε¯), therefore, E(yi − y¯)2 = β12 (xi − x ¯)2 + E(εi − ε¯)2 = β12 (xi − x ¯ )2 + n−1 2 σ , n and n n E(yi − y¯)2 = nβ12 Sxx + i=1 i=1 n−1 2 σ = nβ12 Sxx + (n − 1)σ 2 .

Multiple regression allows researchers to examine the effect of more than one independent variables on response at the same time.

A confidence interval of interest can be used to evaluate the accuracy of a single future value of y at a chosen value of regressor x. Confidence interval estimator for a future value of y provides confidence interval for an estimated value y at x with a desirable confidence level 1 − α. It is of interest to compare the above two different kinds of confidence interval. The second kind has larger confidence interval which reflects the less accuracy resulting from the estimation of a single future value of y rather than the mean value computed for the first kind confidence interval.
