An Ode to the OLS Regression
An Ordinary Least Squares Estimator
Cuts through the noise to estimate the population data
It does this using its two friends Beta hat
These sample counterparts act as stand ins for the true population coefficients
And if they are useful, they will produce an R squared that is more than sufficient!

Haiku by Lily Levin ‘23
We should embrace change.
Your growth diverges from B’s;
that’s why you’re unique.

Metrics and Meter
After time spent researching and time spent pondering,
Our dataset stood clean, free of any error,
A testament to our intellectual wandering,
A beacon against ignorance, that statistical terror.
Through Stata, we learned and began our procession,
The strength to topple untrue fact,
Our tool, the linear regression,
And a commitment to truth as our pact.
