I'm going through Multiple Choice Questions of Basic Econometrics by Gujarati. There is a question which states that:

It is a simple two-variable regression: Any regression equation written in its deviation form would not pass through the origin. This statement is: Always false (according to the book)

Can someone explain why?

  • $\begingroup$ Could you tell us what Gujarati means by "written in its deviation form"? $\endgroup$ – whuber Oct 10 '18 at 14:42
  • $\begingroup$ @whuber I don't know what he means by that. I assume it means deviation from the mean. $\endgroup$ – user218970 Oct 10 '18 at 14:48
