  • Tapetum-Lucidum said “Your data points aren’t iid because you are using the cumulative count. This biases your OLS estimate towards older data because the model has to account for it multiple times. on 2019-10-05
  • Tapetum-Lucidum said “To obtain unbiased OLS estimates, take avg of the years’ differences and use this as your slope. Then use the first year’s amount as the intercept. on 2019-10-05
  • Tapetum-Lucidum said “This gives you the OLS estimate as a function of years since 2009. And it is an unbiased esimate, whereas without taking first differences, it’s not. on 2019-10-05
