    Endogenous variable




    Hi,

    can someone please explain in a simple way what does it mean "variable is correlated with the error term"?

    Thanks.

    What part is giving you trouble? Do you know what it means for two variables to be correlated? Do you know what "the error term" is?
    I don't have emotions and sometimes that makes me very sad.

    Re: Endogenous variable

    I know what is correlation of two variables and error term (=observed-predicted value).

    It confuses me the part how a variable is/can be correlated with error term and what does it mean? Does it mean that a variable contributes more to the error value?

    It can be an issue in Time Series Analysis, say with autoregressive correlation. Search out some picture of what it can look like, that may help.
