constant and the logarithm of labor and capital produce

parameter estimates of a Cobb-Douglas production function.

RNis the j

diagonal element

of the inverse matrix. The resulting F-Statistic is:

O 2

1,T-K jS j jS

F ( ) Est.Var( )

which is the square of the t-statistic with (T-K) degrees of

freedom.

The 5% critical value is 4.26 . We therefore reject the null

hypothesis.

! The hypothesis of constant returns to scale is equivalent to the

null hypothesis that the sum of labor and capital coefficients

equals 1.

! From the above results, we have:

0.6030 + 0.3757 - 1

F 0.1157

(0.01586 + 0.00728 + 2(-0.00961)

This is substantially less than the critical F-value of 4.26 .

We would not reject the null hypothesis. That is, the data are

consistent with the hypothesis of constant returns to scale.

translog model which can be represented by the following:

! This model differs from the Cobb-Douglas model in that it

relaxes the assumption of unitary elasticity of substitution.

Note the Cobb-Douglas model is obtained by the restriction:

! The F-statistic for the hypothesis of a Cobb-Douglas model

can be obtained using the general F-statistic we reviewed in

class when we have multiple linear restrictions on the

parameters using the formula:

The critical value from the F table is 3.07, so we could not reject

the hypothesis of a Cobb-Douglas model.

! Note the coefficient on lnK is now negative. This does not mean

that the estimated output elasticity with respect to capital has

the wrong sign.
