Multiple Regression Analysis

For this case we are going to look at housing starts again, but this time we are going to add another variable to the equation. The historical values below give interest rates, lumber prices (dollars per board-foot) and number of starts. We will compute a multiple regression equation using these variables, with starts as the D

Regression Analysis

For this case, we will examine some hypothetical data concerning interest rates and the number of housing starts per month. A new "housing start" is counted when a contractor begins construction of a new private house. Create a scatterplot with interest rates on the X-axis and the number of housing starts on the Y-axis. (Fo
