I have to construct a paper with this criteria: as preparation for the final research paper, formulate a theory about the correlation between measurable independent variables (causes) and one measurable dependent variable (the effect). Be sure to have at least two independent variables for proposed research paper.
How do I begin to formulate this? I have an idea about a regression model of the auto industry but how do I determine what the dependent and independent variables are?
Okay. Here's the thing about regression and dependent and independent variables. In general you are always told that just because there seems to be a significant relationship between two (or more) variables, you should be very, very careful about claiming that it is a cause-and-effect relationship. But sometimes it seems obvious that there IS a cause-and-effect relationship. Consider the effects of the number of calories that you consume in a day and the number of minutes of exercise that you engage in on a daily basis on your weight. I think that most people would agree that there is a cause-and-effect relationship between the ...
The auto industry for research project examples are examined in the solution.
