ECONOMETRICS Exam, Summer 2010 1. The linear model of weekly expenditure (euro/household) depending on the weekly income i = 24.

.45 + 0.51x i . If the income increases with 15 euro/week what is the (euro/household) is: y amount of change in the weekly expenditure level for a household? 2. Write the correct title of the following chart:: ............................................................................., in Romania between 1991-1999

Knowing that the linear model is: yi=1,2258xi comment the significance of the regression coefficient. 3. A determination coefficient of 0,945 shows that: a) a proportion of 94,5% from all factors influence on y variable variation is explained by the model. b) a proportion of 94,5% from all factors influence on y variable variation is unexplained by the model c) the weight of significant factors influence on y variable variation is 94,5% d) the weight of explanatory variables influence on y variable variation is 94,5% e) the model is valid. 4. About the simple correlation coefficient, r, between the x and y variables, from the simple regression i = 32,5 6,4 xi , it can be said that: model: y a) -1 < r < 0 and the model is not well chosen, b) -1 < r < 0 and the model is well chosen, c) r > 1 and the model is valid, d) -1 < r < 0, it shows an inverse correlation between x and y variables. e) 0 < r < 1, it shows that the model is globally significant, f) -1 < r < 0, it shows that the model is not globally significant, g) 0 < r < 1, it shows a direct correlation between x and y variables. 5. The Scatter Plot of the x and y variables, having a powerful, linear and direct correlation, looks like::
