2.1 Testing on functional form of regression model In this section, we will use Eview10 to conduct the OLS on the lin-lin model, semi-log model (lin-log & log-lin model), and log-log model in order to determine the best linear unbiased estimator (BLUE) regression However, due to non-positive numbers in the ros figures in the excel file, we are unable to run the log(ros) on the "ceosal1" data set In order to determine the most suitable form of the model, we consider R-squared as the conditions because R-Ssquared represents “goodness of fit” of the model, which means how well the data fit the model The decision rule is the higher R2 of the model, the more preferable model In addition, through running four models, we will obtain R-squared (R2) and covariance(CV) of each model and then choose the optimal model with highest R-squared and lowest CV as follows: a Lin-lin model:

Log-log model Obtaining =0.2623, CV= 0.0705

From Eview tables we can see that with the highest R2 means that the highest percentage change in salary is explained by sales, roe, ros jointly, and lowest CV means the most preferred model, we find out the log-log model is the optimal one

The equation is: Log(salary)= B1+ B2*log(sales)+ B3*log(roe)+ B4*ros +u

2.2 Testing the overall significance on all coefficients We have the equation of log-log model:

Log(salary)= 81+ B2*log(sales)+ B3*log(roe)+ B4*ros + u In hypothesis testing, we use significance level of 10%

The number of observations is n = 209 We use the F-test to test the overall significance of all coefficients This test aims to check the effect of all independent variables

H1: 82z0 or B3z0 or B40 ° Compute: F-statistic = 24.2969, = 0.2623 ° Obtain: = 2.08 Compare: F-statistic > => Reject HO Conclusion: Hence, there is enough statistical evidence to conclude that at least one of coefficients is different from zero.
