Abstract

Abstract Within the context of the linear regression model, the variable of interest may be termed the focus variable while those that can be deleted from the regression may be termed doubtful variables. In this note we derive the necessary condition for a sign reversal in the coefficient of the focus variable when the doubtful variables appear in any arbitrary linear combination.
