1. Demonstrate your understanding of the consumption function’s role in macroeconomic
theory. 2. Demonstrate your ability to perform data (regression) analysis in either Excel. 3. Demonstrate your ability to interpret regression results. 4. Demonstrate your ability to tie empirical results to macroeconomic theory. Specific Steps:
1. Download consumption function dataset (Dataset-CF.xls) and notes on variables in the
dataset from BlackBoard.
2. Review data set notes on variable in the consumption function dataset to familiarize
yourself with the variables from the Notes – CF Dataset.PDF. 3. Open dataset in Excel.
4. Review (if necessary) the theoretical relationship between variables in the consumption
function dataset. 5. Develop a priori hypothesis regarding the coefficients for the individual betas for the
Factors to consider when performing assignment: 1. Interest rate (What type of interest rate is this?) 2. Units of variables used in the regression. Deliverables: 1. A brief description of the consumption function, and its significance to the study of
economics. 2. E-mail your expected (a priori) theoretical relationship for the variables (betas) you will
use in your regressions. 3. Output of regression analysis (either in or Excel). 4. Interpretation of results, with a discussion of how well your results related to the testable
hypothesis (a priori assumptions) you developed.

INTERPRETING REGRESSION OUTPUT
Coefficient of
Determination (R2):
A number between 0.0 and 1.0
that expresses the amount of
variance in one variable that is
explained by one or more other
variables.
Determination (R2):
In mutiple regression the
regression.

Standard Error of
Regression:
The standard error of the
regression is the estimate
of the accuracy of the

F Statistic:
The F stat provides a numeric
value that descibes the statistical
significance of the regression
results for all variables.
Significance F:
Provides the degree of certainty
(confidence level) associated with the F
Statistic. (The smaller the number the
more significant the F stat.)
Signifcance F:
In exponential form we can
see that the significance F is a
very small number bu not
quite zero.

Wealth = real wealth in billions of chained 1996 dollars
Interest = nominal annual yield on 3-month Treasury securities – inflation rate
(measured by the annual % change in annual chained price index)
Notes:
The nominal real wealth variable was created using data from the Federal Reserve Board’s
measure of end-of-year net worth for households and nonprofits in the flow of funds accounts.
The price index used to convert this nominal wealth variable to a real wealth variable was the
average of the chained price index from the 4th quarter of the current year and the 1st quarter of
the subsequent year.
