If i=j, -1. if i

In the context of an OLS-framework, the coefficient of determination R2 has at least three useful interpretations (Dhrymes, 1986, p. 1579): (i) there is a direct analogue to the F-statistic for a test that all coefficients of the explanatory variables are zer0 4 ), (ii) it measures the reduction of the variability of the variable caused by the exogenous variables, and (iii) dependent it is the squared correlation coefficient between predicted and actual values of the endogenous variable. These are attractive features, though R2 has been critized for the purpose of selecting regressors (see Amemiya, 1980).

In doing so, one can calculate bias (B) and normalized bias (NS) as (3) B = OE/(OE + UE); NB = NOE/(NOE + NUE) with the interval [0, 1]. 5 means no bias. If B or NB is reasonably greater (smaller! 5, one detects overestimation (underestimation) of categories. Alternatively one may use (4) 0 = OE - UE; ON = NOE - NUE . For all measures, test statistics are easily available. This is examined using 0 and ON. To derive a valuable test statistic for Ho: 0 = ° and Ho: ON = 0, one needs the asymptotic variance of both measures.
