### Test for regression

In a multiple regression equation k = 5 and n = 20, the MSE value is 5.10, and SS total = 519.68. At the 0.05 significance level, can we conclude that any of the regression coefficients are not equal to 0?

When you run a regression in statistical software, and it gives you the results, please explain to me what the following fields mean: Prob > F [In particular, how small/large does this have to be to be statistically significant?] Root MSE P>|t| [Should the number be smaller than .05 to be significant at 5%?]

The goal is to test the functional dependence (prediction) of FVC on elderly subjects based on their height. To test the regression assumption that there is a linear relationship between height and FVC and that the residuals in FVC are normally distributed and have equal variance along the linear relationship with height, we

Q: Answer the following questions related to linear regression. Estimate the model that predicts wins from (grand mean centered) runs scored and (grand mean centered) runs allowed. {Note: Grand mean centering was used to aid in the interpretation of the intercept.} (a) What is the predicted model? (b) Do the coefficients

1. The following information should be used in conjunction with questions 1 to 6. Dave's Diners, a chain of cafes, is planning to open another one. Dave (the owner) believes that the size of the student population at nearby university campuses is related to sales revenue in the cafes. Dave and his management team collect data f

6.1 The goal of this study is to determine the strength and direction of the age, height, and weight variables in correlation with the FVC measure in the population. There were 31 variables measured on 800 elderly subjects. Variables include selected demographics (age, gender, race); selected anthropometrics (height, wais

Read the short article below concerning lumber prices (attachment). How would like I compute the multiple regression formula using the interest rates, lumber prices, and number of housing starts provided below. Once you have computed your multiple regression formula answer the following questions. What is the regressio

Your company builds roads, bridges, schools and other multi-million dollar public construction projects. Competitive bids are made for the contracts to undertake these projects. For each project there are three costs: a) the best estimate of what the project will cost your company to complete, made before a bid is submitted; b

Gallop Marketing has been gathering data on people's television viewing habits in smaller metropolitan areas. Radhika Nanda, an analyst at Gallop, is trying to predict the number of households that tune in to a given television station at any time during a given calendar week. She has gathered data for 25 different stations/bro

Post-hoc fallacy is that condition where regression shows a high degree of correlation (R square is high), but there is no real cause-effect relationship between the independent and dependent variables. For example, when the rooster crows each morning, the sun pops up every time (even if we can't see it). R square would be 1.00

How would I compute a simple regression formula using the interest rates and number of housing starts provided below. Also, once I have computed the regression formula, how would answer the following questions??? What is the regression formula that you computed? What would the approximate number of housing star

Regression analysis problems using SAS output. See attached file for full problem description. Three observations on a variable Y were obtained at each of 7 different X values. These 21 Y values are assumed to be mutually independent. A simple regression was run where Y was regressed on X. See graphs I and II, page A (atta

I have never used SAS before, but I need to answer some multiple regression problems using SAS output. Please see the attached files. Please label the variable used in answering the question so I can understand what is done. For a sample of people, three measurements are taken on each person (skin, thigh, arm) in an at

A large school district is reevaluating its teachers' salaries. They have decided to use regression analysis to predict mean teacher salaries at each elementary school. The researcher uses years of experience to predict salary. The raw data is given in th table below. The resulting equation was: Salary

Wageweb conducts surveys of salary data and presents summaries on its website. Based on salary data as of October 1, 2002, Wageweb reported the average annual salary for sales vice presidents was $142,111, with an average annual bonus of $15,432. Assume the following data are a sample of the annual salary and bonus for 10 vice

Problem #5 Outside Magazine Outside Magazine tested 10 different models of day hikers and backpacking boots. The following data show the upper support and price for each model tested. Upper support was measured using a rating from 1 to 5, with a rating of 1 denoting average upper support and rating of 5 denoting excellent upper

The attached problem has three parameters and gives sum-of-squared deviation data. I can't find anything like this in a textbook. I need some help in determining how to solve it. See attached file for full problem description.
