Some time past decade, there was a pattern in the direction of the worldwide “harmonization” of migration statistics, principally encouraged via overseas our bodies and firms that require comparative info. This quantity presents an available account of the heritage of migration size in Europe and analyzes the present conceptualizations of migration and data-gathering systems throughout twelve ecu international locations.

For RSS to be a minimum with respect to b0 and b1 we require n ∂ RSS = −2∑ (yi − b0 − b1 xi ) = 0 ∂ b0 i =1 and n ∂ RSS = −2∑ xi ( yi − b0 − b1 xi ) = 0 ∂ b1 i =1 Rearranging terms in these last two equations gives n ∑y i i =1 n = b0 n + b1 ∑ xi i =1 and n ∑x y i i i =1 n n i =1 i =1 = b0 ∑ xi + b1 ∑ xi2 . These last two equations are called the normal equations. 1 Introduction and Least Squares Estimates 19 and the slope n ∑x y i i bˆ 1 = i =1 n ∑x 2 i i =1 n − nxy = − nx 2 ∑ (x i − x )( yi − y ) i =1 n ∑ (x i = − x) 2 SXY .
En are independent and normally distributed with mean 0 and variance s2, it can be shown that F has an F distribution with 1 and n – 2 degrees of freedom when H0 is true, that is, F= SSreg / 1 ~ F1,n – 2 when H0 is true RSS /(n − 2) Form of test: reject H0 at level a if F > Fa ,1, n − 2 (which can be obtained from table of the F distribution). However, all statistical packages report the corresponding p-value. 30 2 Simple Linear Regression The usual way of setting out this test is to use an Analysis of variance table Source of variation Degrees of freedom (df) Sum of squares (SS) Mean square (MS) Regression 1 SSreg SSreg/1 Residual Total n–2 n–1 RSS SST RSS/(n – 2) F F= SSreg / 1 RSS /(n − 2) Notes: ˆ −0 ~ tn − 2 1.
0001. A 100(1 – a )% confidence interval for b0, the intercept of the regression line, is given by (bˆ 0 − t (a / 2, n – 2) se(bˆ 0 ), bˆ 0 + t (a /2 , n – 2)se(bˆ 0 )) where t(a / 2,n – 2) is the 100(1–a / 2)th quantile of the t-distribution with n – 2 degrees of freedom. 1009. 3 Confidence Intervals for the Population Regression Line In this section we consider the problem of finding a confidence interval for the unknown population regression line at a given value of X, which we shall denote by x*.
