Estimate the regression equation π = π½ + π½ π + π½ π2 + π½ π3 + π via ordinary least squares (2 marks). Interpret all regression coefficients and assess their statistical significance using a T-test (4 marks). Discuss the explanatory power of the model using the R-squared and the F-test (2 marks). Briefly explain the implications of documented relationships or lack thereof for theory and practice in context of relevant academic sources (4 marks).

Section B: Diagnostic Tests (800 words, 24 marks)

Discuss the assumptions you used when performing an ordinary least squares regression (4 marks). Formally test for any THREE (3) different assumption violations using appropriate statistical procedures, justifying and critically evaluating these using relevant literature (15 marks). Briefly discuss the implications of the results for model validity (5 marks). In this section, you can address concepts such as, for example, autocorrelation, heteroskedasticity, multicollinearity, endogeneity, heterogeneity, or omitted variable bias.

Section C: Robustness Checks (800 words, 24 marks)

Perform ONE (1) robustness check of your choice for your model. Present the procedure using necessary equations, tables, and figures, and referencing appropriate academic sources (15 marks). Discuss the relevance of the robustness test employed in relation to model and diagnostic test results (5 marks). Compare the coefficients qualitatively and quantitatively to those obtained from ordinary least squares (4 marks). In this section, you can address concepts such as, for example, subsample estimations, structural shifts, robust standard errors, weighted least squares, autoregressive models, GARCH, quantile regression, ridge regression, or LASSO.
