Linear Regression Analysis:Develop a wage question,Formulate

See attached data file.

Using numerical data from the data set attached, develop one research question and formulate a hypothesis which can be tested with linear regression analysis.

Complete and describe the results of the linear regression analysis on the collected data. Be sure to include the following:

i. Use the hypothesis statement below:

The hypothesis would be that the effect of education on wages is greater than the effect of work experience (greater positive slope), or that the correlation between wages and education is greater than the correlation between wages and work experience (less variance).

ii. Perform a regression hypothesis test on the data.

iii. Interpret the results of your regression hypothesis test.

Be sure to include your raw data tables and the results of your computations, using both graphical and tabular methods of displaying data and results.
