Hypothesis Test on Correlation and Regression Analysis

Palmdale Permits Population
2003 946 127,585
2004 1366 131,295
2005 1536 134,570
2006 1190 141,012
Total Permits:

Ho: p=0: The amount of permits is dependent upon population.
H1: p is not equal to 0: The amount of permits is not dependent upon population.

Independent Variable: Population (x)
Dependent Variable: Permits (y)

Please perform a hypothesis test using a .05 significance level on the following information. Next please perform a regression analysis as well as providing a scattered diagram.

Solution Summary

The solution tests whether the correlation between population and permits is significant at a level of 0.05.
