This post is part of the series on the omitted variable bias and provides a simulation exercise that illustrates how omitting a relevant variable from your regression model biases the coefficients. The R code will be provided at the end. Continue reading Omitted Variable Bias: An Example

# The Problem of Mulitcollinearity

Multicollinearity or collinearity refers to a situation where two or more variables of a regression model are highly correlated. Because of the high correlation, it is difficult to disentangle the pure effect of one single explanatory variables on the dependent variable . From a mathematical point of view, multicollinearity only becomes an issue when we face perfect multicollinearity. That is, when we have identical variables in our regression model.

# Linear Regression in STATA

In STATA one can estimate a linear regression using the command ` regress`

. In this post I will present how to use the STATA function `regress`

to run OLS on the following model

# Omitted Variable Bias

The omitted variable bias is a common and serious problem in regression analysis. Generally, the problem arises if one does not consider all relevant variables in a regression. In this case, one violates the third assumption of the assumption of the classical linear regression model. The following blog posts explain the omitted variable bias and demonstrate its consequences.

# Omitted Variable Bias: What can we do about it?

To deal with an omitted variables bias is not easy. However, one can try several things.

First, one can try, Continue reading Omitted Variable Bias: What can we do about it?

# Linear Regression

A linear regression is a special case of the classical linear regression models that describes the relationship between **two** variables by fitting a linear equation to observed data. Thereby, one variable is considered to be the explanatory (or independent) variable, and the other variable is considered to be the dependent variable. For instance, an econometrician might want to relate weight to their calorie consumption using a linear regression model.
