Kukla Degiskenlerin T Istatistigi ile Aykiri Gozlemler Tespit Edilemez
AbstractIn the current literature, in order to be able to detect a single observation as an outlier observation, this observation is represented by a dummy variable and the dummy variable is checked for statistical significance. For an observation to be an outlier observation, the thesis of significant t-statistics of dummy variable is used. This paper proves using a theoretic proof for simple regression model that this thesis is wrong and refutes this thesis using a counterexample. The example derived for this paper illustrates that an outlier observation detected by robust regression methods cannot be detected by the t-statistics of dummy variable. In addition, the effect of adding a dummy variable to regression on important regression statistics is investigated.
