F test of a multiple regression model
To help schedule staffing and equipment needs, a large hospital uses a multiple regression model to predict its 'bed census' , the number of beds occupied at the end of each day. Using hospital records from the most recent days, a total of independent variables are used to find the estimated regression model. Let denote the coefficients of the variables in this model. A computer printout indicates that the error sum of squares (SSE) associated with the model is and the corresponding regression sum of squares (SSR) is . Using a significance level of , can you conclude that at least one of the independent variables in the model provides useful (i.e., statistically significant) information for predicting daily bed census?
Perform a one-tailed test. Then fill in the table below.
Carry your intermediate computations to at least three decimal places and round your answers as specified in the table.
