REGESSION DIAGNOSTICS IN STATA
This course presents and discusses assumptions regarding the Ordinary least-squares (OLS) regression. In particular, the course shows how to test for each assumption using STATA and what to do when an assumption is not met. The course is organized into three modules. Module 1 discusses assumptions regarding the error term, for instance homoskedasticity and normal distribution. Module 2 focuses on model specification and shows how to avoid wrong modelling. For instance, it discusses how to test whether the relationship between Y and X is linear or nonlinear. It also covers multicollinearity and omitted variable. Module 3 covers influential observations (outliers). The fact that an observation is too small or too large does not necessarily mean it is an outlier. In this module you will get to know to test for influential observations. Finally, the course summarizes how to test for all relevant assumptions with one command. Useful references for regression diagnostics are provided at end of the course. In each module there is an exercise to test your understanding of the topics covered.
