ECONOMETRICS
1.1: INTRODUCTION
Econometrics is the field of economics that concerns itself
with the application of mathematical statistics and the tools of
statistical inference to the empirical measurement of relationships
postulated by economic theory.
the quantitative measurement and analysis of actual economic and
business phenomena. Econometrics is a fascinating set of
techniques that allows the measurements and analysis of economic
trends.
Econometrics, the result of a certain outlook on the role of
economics, consists of the application of mathematical statistics to
economic data to lend empirical support to the models constructed
by mathematical economics and to obtain numerical results.
Econometrics may be defined as the quantitative analysis of actual
economic phenomena based on the concurrent development of
theory and observation, related by appropriate methods of
inference.
Econometrics may be defined as the social science in which
the tools of economic theory, mathematics and statistical inference
are applied to the analysis of economic phenomena. Econometrics
is concerned with the empirical determination of economic laws.
Frisch (1933) and his society responded to an
unprecedented accumulation of statistical information. They saw a
need to establish a body of principles that could organize what

οƒ˜ ANALYSIS: Econometrics aims primarily at the verification
of economic theories. In this case we say that the purpose of
the research is analysis that is obtaining empirical evidence to
test the explanatory power of economic theories.
1.4: TYPES OF ECONOMETRICS
Econometrics may be divided into two broad categories:
οƒ˜ THEORETICAL ECONOMETRICS
Theoretical econometrics is concerned with the development of
appropriate methods for measuring economic relationship specified
by econometric models. Since the economic data or observations
of real life and not derived from controlled experiments, so
econometrics methods have been developed for such non
experimental data.
οƒ˜ APPLIED ECONOMETRICS
In applied econometrics we use the tools of theoretical
econometrics to study some special field of economics and business,
such as the production function, investment function, demand and
supply function, etc.
Applied econometric methods will be used for estimation of
important quantities, analysis of economic outcomes, markets or
individual behavior, testing theories, and for forecasting. The last of
these is an art and science in itself, and the subject of a vast library of
sources.
1.5: METHODOLOGY OF ECONOMETRICS
Traditional econometric methodology has the following main
points:
1. Statement of theory or hypothesis.

7.
8.
Specification of the mathematical model of the theory.
Specification of the statistical or econometric model.
Obtaining the data.
Estimation of the parameters of the econometric model.
Hypothesis testing.
Forecasting or prediction.
Using the model for control or policy purpose.
1. Statement of Theory or Hypothesis
Keynes stated, the fundamental psychological law is men
(women) are disposed as a rule and on average, to increase their
consumption as their income but not as much as the increase in
their income.
2. Specification of the Mathematical Model
Although Keynes postulated a positive relationship
between consumption and income, a mathematical economist
might suggest the following form of consumption function:
X
0< <1
Where:
3. Specification of the Econometric Model of Consumption
The inexact relationship between economic variables, the
econometrician would modify the deterministic consumption
function as follows:
+ X+u
known as the disturbance, error term or random
(stochastic) variable.
4. Obtaining Data
To estimate the econometric model that is to obtain the
, we need data. e.g

5. Estimation of the Econometric Model
Regression analysis technique to obtain the estimates of the
model. Thus
6. Hypothesis Testing
Assuming that the fitted model is a reasonably good
approximation of reality, we have to develop suitable criteria to
find out whether the estimates obtained in accord with the
expectations of the theory that is being tested.
7. Forecasting or Prediction
If the chosen model does not refute the hypothesis or theory
under consideration, we may use it to predict the future value of
the dependent, or forecast variable Y on the basis of known or
expected future value of the explanatory or predictor variable X.
8. Use of the Model for Control or Policy Purposes
An estimated model may be used for control, or policy
purposes. By appropriate fiscal and monetary policy mix, the
government can manipulate the control variable X to produce the
desired level of the target variable Y.

SIMPLE LINEAR REGRESSION
2.1: THE NATURE OF REGRESSION ANALYSIS
2.1.1: HISTORICAL ORIGIN OF THE TERM REGRESSION
The term regression was introduced by Francis Galton.
Galton found that there was a tendency for tall parents to have tall
children and for short parents to have short children, the average
height of children born of parents of a given height tended to move
e average height in the population as a
whole.
2.1.2: THE MODERN INTERPRETATION OF REGRESSION
Regression analysis is concerned with the study of
dependence of one variable on one or more other variable variables
with a view to estimating the mean value of the former in terms of
the known or fixed values of the latter.

2.2: DATA
Collection of information or facts and figures is called data.
2.2.1: TYPES OF DATA
There are three types of data.
ο‚· Time Series Data: A time series is a set of observations on the
values that a variable takes at different times. Such data may be
collected at regular time intervals, such as daily, weekly, monthly,
quarterly and yearly.
ο‚· Cross-Section Data: Cross-Section data are data on one or more
variables collected at the same point in time, such as the census of
population conducted by the Census Bureau every 10 years.
ο‚· Pooled Data: In pooled, or combined, data are elements of both
time series and cross-section data.
 Panel, Longitudinal, or Micro panel Data: This is a
special type of pooled data in which the same crosssectional unit is surveyed over time.
2.3: METHOD OF ORDINARY LEAST SQUARES
The method of ordinary least squares is the sum of squares of
observed

2. X Value are Fix in Repeated Sampling
Values taken by the regression X are considered fixed in
repeated samples. More technically, X is assumed to be
nonstochastic.
3. Zero Mean Value of Disturbance Term π’Š
Given the value of X, the mean or expected value of random
disturbance term is zero. Technically the conditional mean value
of is zero. That is
E[ ⁄ ]=0
4. Homoscedasticity or Equal Variances of π‘Όπ’Š
Given the value of X, the variance
is the same for all

8. Variability in X Values
The X values in a given sample must not all be the same.
Technically variance of X must be a finite positive number.
9. The Regression Model is Correctly Specified
Alternatively, there is no specification bias error in the
model used in empirical analysis.
10. There is No Perfect Multicollinearity
There is no perfect linear relationship among the
explanatory variables.
2.6: PROPERTIES OF LEAST SQUARES ESTIMATORS
2.6.1: SMALL SAMPLE PROPERTIES OF THE LEAST SQUARES ESTIMATORS
I. Unbiasedness: An estimator is said to be unbiased if the
expected value is equal to the true population parameter.
II. Least Variance: An estimate is best when it has the smallest
variance as compared with any other estimate obtained from other
econometric methods.

parameter b, if the asymptotic mean of Μ‚ is equal to be b.
That is
[Μ‚ ]
Consistency: An estimator Μ‚ is a consistent estimator of the
true population parameter b, if it satisfies two conditions:
(a) Μ‚ Must be asymptotically unbiased.
That is
[Μ‚ ]
(b) The variance of Μ‚ must approach zero as n tends to
infinity. That is
[Μ‚ ]
III.
2.6*
Asymptotic Efficiency: An estimator Μ‚ is an
asymptotically efficient estimator of the true population
parameter b, if
(a) Μ‚ is consistent.
Μ‚ has a smaller asymptotic variance as compared with any
other consistent estimator.
GAUSS MARKOV THEOREM
STATEMENT:
Least squares theory was put forth by Gauss in 1809 and
minimum variance approach to the estimators of
was proposed
by Markov in 1900. Since determining of minimum variance linear
unbiased estimator involves both the concepts, the theorem is
known as Gauss-Markov theorem. It can be stated as follows:
Let
be n independent variables with mean
and variance. The minimum variance linear unbiased estimators of
the regression coefficients are (j=1,2,..,k).
Under the terms and conditions imposed above, the
minimum variance linear unbiased estimators of the regression
coefficients are identically the same as the least square estimators.
18
Advanced Econometrics
The combination of the above two statements is known as
Gauss-Markov theorem. i.e. the least square estimators of
and
are best, linear, unbiased estimators (BLUE).

DUMMY VARIABLES
Econometric models are very flexible as they allow for the
use of both qualitative and quantitative explanatory variables. For
the quantitative response variable each independent variable can
either a quantitative variable or a qualitative variable, whose levels
represent qualities and can only be categorized. Examples of
qualitative variables may be male and female, black and white etc.
But for a qualitative variable, a numerical scale does not exist. We
must assign a set of levels to qualitative variable to account for the
effect that the variable may have on the response, then we use
dummy variables.
A dummy variable is a variable which we construct to
describe the development or variation of the variable under
5.1: NATURE OF DUMMY VARIABLES
In regression analysis dependent variable is
affected not only by quantitative variables but also by qualitative
variables. For example income, output, height, temperature etc, can
be quantified on some well define scales. Similarly religion,
nationality, strikes, earthquakes, sex etc, are qualitative in nature.
These all variables affect on dependent variable. In
order to study these variables, we quantified the qualitative
varia
are called dummy variables. Dummy variables are also called
Indicator, Binary, Categorical variables.

5.2: DUMMY VARIABLE TRAP
If an indicator variable has k categories, that is k-1 dummy
variables, otherwise the situation of perfect multicollinearity arises
and the researcher will fall into the dummy variable trap.
We consider a model
Where
62
Advanced Econometrics
This model is an example of dummy variable trap. There is a
rule of introducing a dummy variable. If a qualitative variable have
introduce only (m ) variable (dummy). If this
rule is not followed we say that there is trap of dummy variable.
EXAMPLES:
οƒ˜ Sex has two categories F and M that is m = 2. If we introduce
m
dummy variable, we follow the rule of
introducing dummy variables. If we introduce 2 dummy
variables then we say there is dummy variable trap.
οƒ˜ Suppose there are three categories of color as white, black and
red. Then m = 3. If we not introduce m
dummy variables, then there will be dummy variable trap.
5.3: USES OF DUMMY VARIABLES
a) Dummy variables used as alternate for qualitative factors.
b) The dummy variables can be used to deseasonalize the time
series.
c) Dummy variables are used in spline function.
d) Interaction effects can be measured by using dummy
variables.
e) Dummy variables are used for determining the change of
regression coefficient.
f) Dummy variables are used as categorical regressors.

AUTO-REGRESSIVE AND DISTRIBUTED-LAG
MODEL
6.1: DISTRIBUTED-LAG MODEL
In regression analysis involving time-series data, If the
regression model includes not only the current but the lagged (past)
lag-model. That is,
Represent a distributed lag-model.
6.2: AUTO-REGRESSIVE MODEL
If the model includes one or more lagged values of
the dependent variable among its explanatory variables, it is called
an auto-regressive model. That is,
Represent an auto-regressive model. Auto-regressive models
are also known as dynamic models. Auto-regressive and
distributed-lag models are used extensively in econometric
analysis.
6.3: LAG
In economics the dependence of a variable Y
(dependent variable) on other variables (explanatory variable) is
rarely instantaneous (happen immediately). Very often Y responds
to X with a laps of time, such a laps of time is called a lag.
65
Advanced Econometrics
6.4: REASONS SOURCES OF LAGS
There are three main reasons of lags.
1. Psychological Reasons: Due to the force of habit people do
not change their consumption habits immediately following a
price decrease or an income increase. For example those who
become instant millionaires by winning lotteries may not
change their life styles. Given reasonable time, they may learn
to live with their newly acquired fortune.
2. Technological Reason: Technological reason is the major
source of lags. In the field of economics if the drop in price is
expected to be temporary firms may not substitute labor,
especially if they expected that after the temporary drop, the
price of capital may increase beyond the previous levels. For
example, since the introduction of electronic pocket calculators
dramatically decrease as a result consumers for the calculators
may hesitate to buy until they have time to look into the
features and prices of all the competing brands. Moreover they
may hesitate to buy in the expectation of further decrease in
price.
3. Institutional Reason: These reasons also contribute to lags.
For example, those who have placed funds in long term saving
accounts for fixed durations such as 1 year, 3 year or 7 year are
may be such that higher yields are available elsewhere.
Similarly, employers often given their employees a choice
among several health insurance plans, but one a choice is made
on employee may not switch to another plan for at least one
year.
66
Advanced Econometrics
6.5: TYPES OF DISTRIBUTED LAG MODEL
There are two types of distributed lag model:
1. Infinite Distributed Lag Model
In case of infinite distributed lag model we do not
specify the length of the lag. It means that how for back
into the past we want to go: e.g
2. Finite Distributed Lag Model
In case of finite distributed lag model we specify the
length of lag: e.g
6.6: ESTIMATION OF DISRIBUTED LAG MODEL
We use the following methods for estimation of
distributed lag model.
1) Ad Hoc Estimation Method.
2) Koyck Estimation Method.
3) Almon Approach Method.
1) Ad Hoc Estimation Method
This is the approach taken by Alt and Tinbergen.
They suggest estimating,
One may proceed sequentially under this method, first we
regress
then regress
and
and so on. This
sequential procedure stops when the regressive coefficients of
the lagged variables start becoming statistically insignificant and
67
Advanced Econometrics
or the coefficients of at least one of the variables. Changes sign
from positive to negative or vice versa.
2) Koyck Approach
This method is used in case of finite distributed lag model.
Under this method we assume that
are all of the same sign.
Koyck assume they decline geometrically as follows:
.
.
.
.
.
.
decay of the distributed lag where 1
is known as the speed of
adjustment. As the distributed lag model is:
From eq. (A) we substitute
we get
...eq. (C)
Lagging one period, we get
Subtracting eq. (D) from eq. (C), we get

Advanced Econometrics
It is also regressive model, so we can apply OLS method to
model (E) and get
,
,
using them we can fined
In a sense of multicollinearity is resolved by replacing
By a single variable
. But note the
following features of Koyck transformation.
οƒ˜ Koyck model is transformend into auto regressive model from
distributed lag model.
οƒ˜ It gives biased and inconsistent estimator.
οƒ˜
οƒ˜
3) Almon Approach to Distributed Lag Models
If
coefficients do not decline geometrically, They
increase at first and then decrease it is assumed that
follow a
cyclical pattern. In this situation we apply Almon approach.
To illustrate Almon technique, we use the finite distributed
lag model.
This may be written as:

MULTICOLLINEARITY
7.1: Collinearity
In a multiple regression model with two independent
variables, if there is linear relationship between independent
variables, we say that there is collinearity.
7.2: Multicollinearity
If there are more than two independent variables and they
are linearly related, this linear relationship is called
multicollinearity.
Multicollinearity
arises
from
the
presence
of
interdependence among the regressors in a multivariable equation
system. The departure of orthognality in the set of regressors in a
measure of multicollinearity. It means the existence of a perfect or
exact linear relationship among some or all explanatory variables.
When the explanatory variables are perfectly correlated, the
method of least squares breaks down.
7.3: Sources of Multicollinearity
οƒ˜ The data collection method employed for example,
sampling over a limited range of the values taken by the
regressors in the population.
οƒ˜ Constraints on the model or in the population being
sampled. In the regression of electricity consumption (Y)
on income ( ) and house size ( ) there is a physical
constraints in the population in that families with higher
income generally larger homes than families with lower
income.
οƒ˜ Model specification: For example adding polynomial
terms to a regression model, especially when the range of
the variable is small.
71
Advanced Econometrics
οƒ˜ An Over determined Model: This happens when the
model has more explanatory variables than the number of
observations. This could happen in medical research,
where there may be a small number of patients about
whom information is collected on a large number of
variables.
οƒ˜ An additional reason for multicollinearity, especially in
time series data may be that the regressors included in the
model share a common trend, that is they all increase or
decrease over time. Thus in the regression of consumption
expenditure on income, wealth and population, the
regressors income, wealth and population may all be
growing over time at more or less the same rate leading to
collinearity among these variables.
7.4: TYPES OF MULTICOLLINEARITY
There are two types of multicollinearity.
οƒ˜ Perfect Multicollinearity
Relates to the situation where explanatory variables are
perfectly linearly related with each other. Simply when
correlation between two explanatory variables is exactly one i.e.
). This situation is called perfect multicollinearity.
οƒ˜ Imperfect Multicollinearity
If the correlation coefficient between two explanatory
variables is not equal to one but close to one approximately 0.9,
it is called high multicollinearity. If
approximately 0.5,
it is called moderate and if
it is called low
multicollinearity. Both are troublesome because it cannot be
easily detected.

7.6: CONSEQUENCES OF MULTICOLLINEARITY
1) The estimate of the coefficient of statistical unbiased,
even multicollinearity is strong. The sample property
of unbiased of the estimate does not require that the
estimate seriously imprecise.
2) If the intercorrelation between the explanatory is
perfect. Then the estimates of the coefficient are
indeterminate.

A statistical test for multicollinearity has been developed by

2. High Pair Wise Correlation among Regressors
Multicollinearity exists if the pair wise or zero order
coefficients between the two regressors are very high.
3.
Eigen Value and Condition Number
A condition number K is defined as
If K is between 100 and 1000, There is moderate to
strong multicollinearity and if exceeds 1000 there is severe
multicollinearity.
The condition index defined as
√
If
is the condition effect lie between 10 and 30 then
there is moderate to strong multicollinearity and if it exceed
30 there is severe multicollinearity.
4. Tolerance and Variance Inflation Factor
As
the coefficient of determination in the regression
of regressors
on the remaining regressor in the model
increases towards that is as the collinearity with the other

is high the F-test in most cases will reject the
hypothesis that the partial correlation coefficients are
simultaneously equal to zero, but the individual t-test will
show that non are very few of the partial slope of coefficients
are statistically different from zero. This is the symptom of
multicollinearity.
6. Some Other Multivariate Methods
Like Principal Component Analysis (PCA), Factor
Analysis (FA) and Ridge Regression can also be used for
detection of multicollinearity.
7.8. REMEDIAL MEASURES OF MULTICOLLINEARITY
i. A Prior Information
Suppose we consider the model
Where Y = Consumption,
Income and wealth variable tends to be highly collinear.
Suppose
that is the rate of change of
consumption with respect to wealth one tended the
corresponding rate with respect to income. We can then run
the regression

Advanced Econometrics
Where
Once we obtain
we can estimate

from the
ii. Combining Cross-sectional and Time Series Data
A variant of the extraneous are a priori information
technique is the combination of cross-sectional and time
series data known as pooling the data. The combination of
cross-sectional and time series data may be a situation of
reduction of multicollinearity.
iii. Dropping a Variable or Variables
When faced with severe multicollinearity one of the
simplest things to do is to drop one of the collinear variables.
In dropping a variable
from the model we may be
committing a specification bias or specification error.
iv. Transformation of Variables
One way of minimizing this dependence is to proceed as
follows:
If the above
we have
is arbitrary, therefore
is known as first difference form.
83
Advanced Econometrics
The first difference regression model often reduces the
severity of multicollinearity.
v. Additional or New Data
Since multicollinearity is a sample feature, it is possible
that in another sample involving the same variables.
Multicollinearity may not be as serious as in the first sample.
Sometimes simply increasing the size of slope may reduce the
multicollinearity problem.
vi. Other Methods
Multivariate statistical technique such as factor analysis
and principal components or other techniques such as ridge
regression are often implied to solve the problem of
multicollinearity.

HETEROSCEDASTICITY
8.1. NATURE OF HETEROSCEDASTICITY
One of the important assumptions of the classical linear
regression model is that the variance of each disturbance term is
equal to . This is the assumption of homoscedasticity.
[ ]
Symbolically,
If this assumption of the homoscedasticity is fail that is:
[ ]
[
]
may all
be different.
DIFFERENCE BETWEEN HOMOSCEDASTICITY AND
HETEROSCEDASTICITY
Homoscedasticity is the situation in which the probability
distributions of the disturbance term remain same overall
is the same for all values of the explanatory variables.
Heteroscedasticity is the situation in which the probability
distributions of the disturbance term does not remain the same over
each
is not the same for all the values of the explanatory
variables.
8.1.1. Reasons of Heteroscedasticity
i. Error Learning Model
86
Advanced Econometrics
As people learn their error of behavior become smaller
over time. In this case
is expected to decrease, e.g. as the
number of hours of typing practice increases. The average
number of typing errors as well as their variances decreases.
ii. Data Collection Technique
Another reason of heteroscedasticity is the collection of
data techniques. Improvement of data collection techniques
is likely to decrease.
iii. Variance in Cross-Section and Time Series Data
In cross-sectional data the variance is greater than as
compared to the time series data variance. Because in crosssectional data, one usually deals with numbers of population
at a given point in time.
iv. Due to Specification Error
The heteroscedasticity problem is also arises from
specification errors, due to that error the variance tends to
variate.

8.3: CONSEQUENCES OF HETEROSCEDASTICITY
1) The OLS estimators in the presence of heteroscedasticity
are still linear, unbiased and consistent.
2) In the presence of heteroscedasticity the OLS estimators
are not BLUE, that is they have not minimum variance in the
class of unbiased estimators.
3) In the presence of heteroscedasticity the confidence
interval of OLS estimators are wider.

difference is that Glejser suggests as many as six functional

AUTOCORRELATION
9.1: INTRODUCTION
Autocorrelation refer to a case in which the error term in
one time period is correlated with the error term in any other time
ordered in time as in case of time series data or space as in case of
crossOne of the assumptions of linear regression model is
that there is zero correlation between error terms. That is
(
)
If the above assumption is not satisfied than there is
autocorrelation, that is if the value of in any particular period is
correlated with its own preceding value or values. Therefore it is
known as the autocorrelation or serial correlation. That
is (
)
. Autocorrelation is a special case of correlation.
Autocorrelation is referring to the relationship not between two
different variables but between the successive values of the same
variable.
Autocorrelation:
Lag correlation of a given series with itself is called
autocorrelation, thus correlation between two time series such as
is called autocorrelation.
Serial Correlation:
Lag correlation between two different series is called
serial correlation, thus correlation between two different series
such as
is called serial correlation.
97
Advanced Econometrics
9.2. REASONS OF AUTOCORRELATION
There are several reasons which become the cause of
autocorrelation.
1) Omitting Explanatory Variables:
Most of the economic variables are generally tend
to be auto correlated. If an auto correlated variable has been
excluded from the set of explanatory variables, its influence
be auto correlated.
2) Miss Specification of the Mathematical Model:
If we have adopted a mathematical form which
differs from the true form of the relationship, the
show serial correlation.
3) Specification Bias:
Autocorrelation also arises due to specification bias,
arises from true variables excluded from model and wrong
use of functional form.
4) Lags:
Regression models using lagged values in time
series data occur relatively often in economics, business
and some fields of engineering. If we neglect the lagged
term from the autoregressive model, the resulting error
term will reflect a systematic pattern and therefore
autocorrelation will be present.
5) Data Manipulation:
For empirical analysis, the raw data are often
manipulated. Manipulation introduces smoothness into the
raw data by dampening the fluctuations. This manipulation
98
Advanced Econometrics
leads to a systematic pattern and therefore, autocorrelation
will be there.

Following are the consequences of OLS method in
the presences of autocorrelation.
1. The least square estimator is unbiased even when the
residuals are correlated.
2. With autocorrelation values of the disturbance term
the OLS variance of the parameter are likely to be
larger than those of other econometric models, so they
do not have the minimum variance that is BLUE.
3. If the values of are auto correlated the prediction
based on ordinary least square estimates will be
inefficient in the sense that they will have larger
variances as compared to others.

SIMULTANEOUS EQUATION MODELS
10.1: INTRODUCTION
There are two types of Simultaneous Equation Models
1. Simultaneous Equation Models
2. Recursion Equation Models
1. Simultaneous Equation Models
When the independent variable in one equation is also an
independent variable in some other equation we call it
simultaneous equations system or model. The variable entering a
simultaneous equation models are two types:
i .Endogenous variable
ii. Exogenous variable
i. Endogenous variable
The variable whose values are determined within the model
is called Endogenous variable
ii. Exogenous variable
The variable whose values are determined outside the
model is called exogenous variable. These variables are treated as
nonstochastic.
2. Recursion Equation Models
In this model one dependent variable may be a function of
other dependent variable but other dependent variable might not be
the function variable.
105
Advanced Econometrics
10.2: SYSTEM OF SIMULTANEOUS EQUATION
between Y and X by using single equation.
We must use a multi-equation model which we include
separate equations in which m Y and X, would appear as an
endogenous variable although that might appear as explanatory
variable in other equation of the model.
10.3: Simultaneous Equation Bias
It refers to the overestimation or underestimations of the
structural parameters obtain from the applications the OLS to the
structural equations. This bias result because these endogenous
variables of the system which are also explanatory variables or
correlated with the error term.
Structural Equations and Parameters
Structural equations describe the structure of an economy
or behaviors are some economic agents such as consumer or
producer. There is only on structural equation for each of the
endogenous variable of the system.
The coefficients of the structural equations are called
structural parameters and express the direct effect of each
explanatory variable on the dependent variable.
Reduced Form Equations
These are equations obtained by solving the system of
structural equations so as to express each endogenous variable as a
106
Advanced Econometrics
function of only the exogenous variables of the function. Since the
endogenous variable of the system are uncorrelated with error
term, so OLS gives consistent reduced form parameters estimate.
These measure the total direct and indirect effect of a change in the
exogenous variables on the endogenous variables and may be used
to obtain consistence structural parameter.
Example:
Considering Keynesian model of consumption and income
function:
Here
and
are endogenous variables and

Models
The most common methods are:
1)
2)
3)
4)
5)
6)
Direct Least Square (DLS)
Indirect Least Square (ILS)
Two stage least square (2SLS)
Three stage least square(3SLS)
Instrumental variable method(IV)
Least variance ratio method(LVR)
1. Direct Least Square Method (DLS)
In this method, we estimate the structural parameter by
applying OLS directly to the structural equation. This method does
not require complete knowledge of the structural system. In this
system, we express all the endogenous variables as a function of all
predetermined variables of the system and we apply ordinary least
square non restriction. Because it does not take into account any
information on the structural parameters.
2. Indirect Least Square Method (ILS)
There is definite relationship between the reduced form
coefficients and the structural parameters it is thus possible first to
obtain estimates of the structural parameters by any econometric
108
Advanced Econometrics
technique and then substitute. These estimates into the system of
parameters relationship to obtain
Advantages of ILS
1)
2) Structural changes occur continuously over time.
3) Extraneous information is same structural parameters may
become available from other studies.
Disadvantages of ILS
1) It does not give the standard error of the estimate of the
structural parameters.
2) It cannot be used to calculate unique and consistent structural
parameter estimates from the reduced form coefficients from
the over identify equations of a simultaneous equation models.
Assumption of ILS method

3. The Method of Two Stage Least Square (2SLS)
This method was discovered by Theil and Basmann. It is a
method of estimating consistent structural parameter for the exact
or over identified equations of a simultaneous equation system. For
exactly identified equation Two Stages Least Squares gives the
same result as of ILS. Two Stages Least Squares estimation
involves the application of OLS in two stages.
Stage 1:
In the first stage each endogenous variable is regressed on
all the predetermined variable of the system. At this stage we get
the new reduced form equation.
Stage11:
In the second stage predicted values rather than the actual
values of endogenous are used to estimate the structural equation of
the model. That is, we obtain the estimates Μ‚ . From stage first and
replacing Μ‚ in the original equation by the estimated Μ‚ and then
apply OLS to the equation thus transformed.
The predicted values of the endogenous variable are uncorrected
with the error term which will give us two stages least square
parameters estimates.
113
Advanced Econometrics
Advantages of 2SLS with respect to ILS
1) 2SLS can be used to get consistent structural parameter
estimates for the over identified as well as exactly identified
equation in a system of simultaneous equation.
2) 2SLS gives the standard error of the estimate structural
parameter directly while ILS does not provide it.
3) 2SLS is very useful. It is the simplest and one of the best and
most common of all the simultaneous equation estimates.
Properties of 2SLS estimator
1) The 2SLS gives the biased estimator for small sample.
2) For large sample 2SLS estimates are unbiased that is biased
will be zero as n
3) A 2SLS estimate gives the asymptotically efficient estimator.
4) 2SLS estimates are consistent.
Question: Find out the 2SLS estimate and show that in case of exactly
identified 2SLS is same as ILS.

4. Three Stage Least Square Method (3SLS)
3SLS is a system method. It is applied to all the equations
at the same time and gives estimates of all the parameters
simultaneous. This method is logical extension of two stages least
square method. Under this method we apply OLS method in three
successive stages. It uses more information than single equation
technique.
The first two stages of 3SLS are same as 2SLS. We deal
with the reduced form of all the equation of the system. 3SLS is
the application of GLS (Generalized Least Squares). It means that
we apply OLS method to a set of transformed equations in which
the transformation is obtained from reduced form residuals of the
previous stage.
5. Method of Instrumental Variable (IV)
The instrumental variable method is a single equation
method being applied to one equation of system at a time. It has
been developed as a solution of the simultaneous equation bias and
is appropriate for over identified model.
The instrumental variable method attains the reduction of
appropriate exogenous variable (as instrument). The estimates
obtains from this method is consistent for large sample and biased
for small sample.
Procedure of IV Method
Step I:
An instrumental variable is an exogenous variable located
somewhere in a system of simultaneous equation which satisfies
the following condition:
118
Advanced Econometrics
1) It must strongly correlated
2) It must truly exogenous
3) If more than one instrumental variable is to be used in the same
structural equation they must be least correlated.
Step II:
Multiplying the structural equation through by the each of
instrument variable form the equation we obtain the estimator of
the structural parameter
Properties of IV
1) For small sample estimator of structural parameter are baised.
2) For large sample the estimates of structural parameter are
consistent.
3) The estimates are not asymptotically efficient.
Assumption of IV method
1) Exogenous variable used as instrumental variable.
2)
of OLS.
3) The exogenous variable must not be multicollinear.
4) The structural function must be identified.

IDENTIFICATION
11.1 INTRODUCTION
By identification, we mean whether numerical estimates of
the parameters of the structural equation can be obtained from the
estimated reduced form equations.
If this can be done, we say that the particular equation is
identified. If it is not possible then we say that the equation under
consideration is unidentified or under identified.
In econometric theory there are two possible equations of
identification.
1) Equation under identified
2) Equation identified
1) Equation Under Identified
If the numerical estimates of the parameters of structural
equation cannot be obtain from the estimated reduced form coefficient then we say that the equation under consideration is
unidentified or under identified.
An equation is under identified if its statistical shape is not
unique if it is impossible to estimate all the parameters of an
equation with any econometric technique then equation is
under identified.
A system is called under identified when one or more
equations are under identified.
Example: Consider the following demand and supply model
with equilibrium condition.

Four structural parameters are
from
structural equations of 1 and 2.We have two reduced form
0
1 from the reduced form equations a & b.
122
Advanced Econometrics
These reduced form equations contain all four structural
parameters. So there is no way in which the four structural
unknown parameters can be estimated from only two reduced form
coefficients. So the system of equation is unidentified or under
identified.
2) Equation Identified
If numerical estimates of the parameters of a structural
equation can be obtained from the estimated reduced form
coefficients then we say that equation is identified
If an equation has a unique statistical solution we may say
that equation is identified.
Identification is a problem of model formulation and
identified equation may be exactly (just) identified or over
identified.
a. Exact (Just) Identification
An identified equation is said to be exactly identified if
unique numerical values of the structural parameters can be
obtained.
Example: Consider the following demand and supply model with
equilibrium condition.
Solution:
123
Advanced Econometrics
(
Put eq (*) in
*
We
+
have
six structural parameters that are
and six reduced form coefficients that are
here we obtain unique solution of structural
parameters. So the system of equation is exactly identified.
b. Over Identification
An equation is said to be over identified if more than one
numerical value can be obtained for some of the parameters of the
structural equations.
Example: Consider the following demand and supply model with
equilibrium condition.
124
Advanced Econometrics
Solution:

We

have
seven structural parameters that are
but there are eight reduced form
coefficients that are
The number of
equation are greater than the number of unknown parameters as a
result we may get more than one numerical value for some of the
parameters of the structural equations. So the system of equation is
over identified.

11.2 RULES FOR IDENTIFICATION
Identification may be established either by examination of the
specification of the structural model or by the examination of the
reduced form of the model.
1) Examination of Structural Model
It is simpler and more useful method for identification.
2) Examination of Reduced form Determinant
This approach for finding the identification is
comparatively confusing and difficult to compute because we
first find the reduced form of the structural models and study
the determinants.
11.3 CONDITIONS OF IDENTIFICATION
There are two conditions which must be fulfilling for an
equation to be identified.
1) The Order Condition of the Identification
This condition is based on a counting rule of the variables
included and excluded from the particular equation. It is a
necessary but not sufficient condition for the identification of an
equation.
Definition:
variables (endogenous and exogenous) excluded from it must be
equal to or greater than the number of endogenous variables in the
model less one
ο‚·
ο‚·
If
If
The equation is just or exact identified.
It is over identified.
126
Advanced Econometrics
Where M = number of endogenous variables in the model or
system.
m= number of endogenous variables in a given equation.
K = number of pre-determined or exogenous variables in the
model or system.
k = number of predetermined or exogenous variables in a given
equation.
Example: Consider the following demand and supply function.
Apply order condition.
Solution:
Q and P are endogenous variables. I is exogenous
variable. Apply order condition.
K=1 , M=2
For eq (1).
k=1 , m=2
So demand function is unidentified.
For eq (2).
k=0 , m=2
So supply function is just identified.
127
Advanced Econometrics
Example: Consider the following demand and supply function.
Apply order condition.
Solution:
Q and P are endogenous variables. I, R,
variables. Apply order condition.
are exogenous
K=3 , M=2
For eq (1).
k=2 , m=2
So demand function is exact identified.
For eq (2).
k=1 , m=2
So supply function is over identified.
2) The Rank Condition for Identification
The order condition is necessary but not sufficient
condition for identification. Sometime the order condition is
satisfied but it happens that an equation is not identified.
128
Advanced Econometrics
Therefore we required another condition for identification
is the rank condition which is sufficient condition for
identification.
Rank Condition
The rank condition states that in a system of G equations,
particular equation is identified if and only if (iff) it is possible to
construct at least one none zero determinants of order (G-1) from
the coefficient of variables excluded from that particular equation
but contained in the other equation of the model.
Procedure of Rank Condition
a) Write down the equations in tabular form.
b) Strike out (exclude) the coefficient of the row in which
the equation under consideration appears.
c) Also strike out the columns corresponding to those
coefficients in step (b) which are none zero.
d) The entries left in the table will give only the coefficient
of variables included in the system but not in the equation
under consideration.
Example: Given the following equations:
Apply rank condition to all the equations.
