For linear regression model: Yt=β0+β1X1 +......+βkXk,t+Ut
Xt is a set of independent variables; Yt is the dependent variable. βt are unknown population coefficients; Ut is a disturbance term which captures the error between X and Y.
The estimation of the model is: Yt=b0+b1X1,t +......+bkXk,t +et
Bk is the sample estimate of βk; et is the residual.
Here Bk is estimated by minimizing the sum of squared errors, and referred to as ...
