9) we shall use the fact that E(bˆ 0 | X ) = E( y | X ) − E(bˆ1 | X ) x The first piece of the last equation is E( y | X ) = = 1 n ∑ E( yi | X = xi ) n i =1 1 n ∑ E(b0 + b1 xi + ei ) n i =1 1 n ∑ xi n i =1 = b 0 + b1 x = b 0 + b1 The second piece of that equation is E(bˆ1 | X ) x = b1 x . 10) let’s consider Var(bˆ 0 | X ) = Var( y − bˆ1 x | X ) = Var( y | X ) + x 2 Var(bˆ1 | X ) − 2 xCov( y , bˆ1 | X ) The first term is given by Var( y | X ) = Var( 1 n ns 2 s 2 | = ) = = . 11) follows from the fact that under assumption (4), Yi | X (and hence y¯ ) are normally distributed as is bˆ1 | X .

The statistics part of the project involves fitting regression models to large data sets. Together they have written and submitted a manuscript to an entomology journal. 8 Exercises 43 associated individual 95% confidence intervals for the regression function at each x value, as well as the observed data.

Determine which (if any) of the data points have x-values that have an unusually large effect on the estimated regression model (such points are called leverage points). Determine which (if any) of the data points are outliers, that is, points which do not follow the pattern set by the bulk of the data, when one takes into account the given model. If leverage points exist, determine whether each is a bad leverage point. If a bad leverage point exists we shall assess its influence on the fitted model.
