# Bivariate Data

Below are bivariate data giving birthrate and life expectancy information for each of twelve countries. For each of the countries, both the number of births per one thousand people in the population and the female life expectancy (in years) are given. Also given are the products of the birthrates and female life expectancies for each of the twelve countries. (These products, written in the column labelled " ," may aid in calculations.)

Temperature, x Female life expectancy, y xy

per 1000 pop.)

46.0 58.0 2668

18.7 72.0 1346.4

51.1 60.2 3076.22

34.8 67.5 2349

23.3 73.7 1717.21
