Oh No! I Got the Wrong Sign! What Should I Do?

  • Peter E. Kennedy

Abstract

Getting a "wrong" sign in empirical work is a common phenomenon. Remarkably, econometrics textbooks provide very little information to practitioners on how this problem can arise. The author exposits a long list of ways in which a wrong sign can occur and how it might be corrected.
