1 CHAPTER 10 REGRESSION AND CORRELATION SIMPLE LINEAR REGRESSION: TWO VARIABLES (SECTIONS OF UNDERSTANDABLE STATISTICS) Chapter 10 of Understandable Statistics introduces linear regression. The formula for the correlation coefficient r is given in Section Formulas to find the equation of the least squares line, y = a + bx are given in Section This section also contains the formula for the coefficient of determination r. The equation for the standard error of estimate as well as the procedure to find a confidence interval for the predicted value of y are given in Section The menu selection Stat Regression Regression gives the equation of the least-squares line, the value of the standard error of estimate (s = standard error of estimate), the value of the coefficient of determination 2 r (R sq), as well as several other values such as R sq adjusted (an unbiased estimate of the population r 2 ). For simple regression with a response variable and one explanatory variable, we can get the value of the Pearson product moment correlation coefficient r by simply taking the square root of R sq. The standard deviation, t-ratio and P values of the coefficients are also given. The P value is useful for testing the coefficients to see that the population coefficient is not zero (see Section 10.4 of Understandable Statistics for a discussion about testing the coefficients). For the time being we will not use these values. Depending on the amount of output requested (controlled by the options selected under the [Results] button) you will also see an analysis of variance chart, as well as a table of x and y values with the fitted values y and residuals ( y y r ). We will not use the analysis of variance chart in our introduction to regression. p However, in more advanced treatments of regression, you will find it useful. To find the equation of the least-squares line and the value of the correlation coefficient, use the menu options Stat Regression Regression Dialog Box Responses Response: Enter the column number C# of the column containing the responses (that is Y values). Predictor: Enter the column number C# of the column containing the explanatory variables (that is, X values). [Graphs]: Do not click on at this time. [Results]: Click on and select the second option, Regression equation, etc. [Options]: We will click on this option when we wish to do predictions for new variables. [Storage]: Click on and select the fits and residual options if you wish. To graph the scatter plot and show the least-squares line on the graph, use the menu options Stat Regression Fitted Line Plot Dialog Box Responses Response: List the column number C# of the column containing the Y values. Predictor: List the column number C# of the column containing the X values. Type of Regression model: Select Linear

2 Part III: MINITAB Guide 255 [Options]: Click on and select Display Prediction Interval for a specified confidence level of prediction band. Do not use if you do not want the prediction band. [Storage]: This button gives you the same storage options as found under regression. To find the value of the correlation coefficient directly and to find its corresponding P value, use the menu selection Stat Basic Statistics Correlation Example Dialog Box Responses Variables: List the column number C# of the column containing the X variable and the column number C# of the column containing the Y variable. Select Display P- values option. Merchandise loss due to shoplifting, damage, and other causes is called shrinkage. Shrinkage is a major concern to retailers. The managers of H.R. Merchandise think there is a relationship between shrinkage and number of clerks on duty. To explore this relationship, a random sample of 7 weeks was selected. During each week the staffing level of sales clerks was kept constant and the dollar value (in hundreds of dollars) of the shrinkage was recorded. X Y (in hundreds) Store the value of X in C1 and name C1 as X. Sore the values of Y in C2 and name C2 as Y. Use menu choices to give descriptive statistics regarding the values of X and Y. Use commands to draw an (X, Y) scatter plot and then to find the equation of the regression line. Find the value of the correlation coefficient, and test to see if it is significant. (a) First we will use Stat Basic Statistics Display Descriptive Statistics and each of the columns X and Y. Note that we select both C1 and C2 in the variables box.

3 256 Technology Guide Understandable Statistics, 8th Edition (b) Next we will use Stat Regression Fitted Line Plot to graph the scatter plot and show the leastsquares line on the graph. We will not use prediction bands. Notice that the equation of the regression line is given on the figure, as well as the value of r 2. (c) However, to find out more information about the linear regression model, we use the menu selection Stat Regression Regression. Enter C2 for Response and C1 for Predictor.

4 Part III: MINITAB Guide 257 The results follow. Notice that the regression equation is given as y = x The value of the standard error of estimate S e is given as S = We have the value of r 2, R-square = 92.8%. Find the value of r by taking the square root. It is or 96.3%. (d) Next, let s use the prediction option to find the shrinkage when 14 clerks are available. Use Stat Regression Regression. Your previous selections should still be listed. Now press [Options]. Enter 14 in the prediction window.

5 258 Technology Guide Understandable Statistics, 8th Edition The results follow.

6 Part III: MINITAB Guide 259 The predicted value of the shrinkage when 14 clerks are on duty is hundred dollars, or \$1005. A 95% prediction interval goes from 3.33 hundred dollars to hundred dollars that is, from \$333 to \$1677. (e) Graph a prediction band for predicted values. Now we use Stat Regression Fitted Line Plot with the [Option] Display Prediction Interval selected. (f) Find the correlation coefficient and test it against the hypothesis that there is no correlation. We use the menu options Stat Basic Statistics Correlation.

7 260 Technology Guide Understandable Statistics, 8th Edition The results are Notice r = and the P value is so small as to be 0. We reject the null hypothesis and conclude that there is a linear correlation between the number of clerks on duty and the amount of shrinkage. LAB ACTIVITIES FOR SIMPLE LINEAR REGRESSION: TWO VARIABLES 1. Open or retrieve the worksheet Slr01.mtp from the CD-ROM. This worksheet contains the following data, with the list price in column C1 and the best price in the column C2. The best price is the best price negotiated by a team from the magazine. List Price versus Best Price for a New GMC Pickup Truck In the following data pairs (X, Y) X = List Price (in \$1000) for a GMC Pickup Truck Y = Best Price (in \$1000) for a GMC Pickup Truck SOURCE: CONSUMERS DIGEST, FEBRUARY 1994 (12.4, 11.2) (14.3, 12.5) (14.5, 12.7) (14.9, 13.1) (16.1, 14.1) (16.9, 14.8) (16.5, 14.4) (15.4, 13.4) (17.0, 14.9) (17.9, 15.6) (18.8, 16.4) (20.3, 17.7) (22.4, 19.6) (19.4, 16.9) (15.5, 14.0)

8 Part III: MINITAB Guide 261 (16.7, 14.6) (17.3, 15.1) (18.4, 16.1) (19.2, 16.8) (17.4, 15.2) (19.5, 17.0) (19.7, 17.2) (21.2, (18.6) (a) Use MINITAB to find the least-squares regression line using the best price as the response variable and list price as the explanatory variable. (b) Use MINITAB to draw a scatter plot of the data. (c) What is the value of the standard error of estimate? (d) What is the value of the coefficient of determination r 2? of the correlation coefficient r? (e) Use the least-squares model to predict the best price for a truck with a list price of \$20,000. Note: Enter this value as 20 since X is assumed to be in thousands of dollars. Find a 95% confidence interval for the prediction. 2. Other MINITAB worksheets appropriate to use for simple linear regression are Cricket Chirps Versus Temperature: Slr02.mtp Source: The Song of Insects by Dr. G.W. Pierce, Harvard College Press The chirps per second for the striped grouped cricket are stored in C1; the corresponding temperature in degrees Fahrenheit is stored in C2. Diameter of Sand Granules Versus Slope on a Beach: Slr03.mtp; source Physical Geography by A.M. King, Oxford press The median diameter (mm) of granules of sand in stored in C1; the corresponding gradient of beach slope in degrees is stored in C2. National Unemployment Rate Male Versus Female: Slr04.mtp Source: Statistical Abstract of the United States The national unemployment rate for adult males is stored in C1; the corresponding unemployment rate for adult females for the same period of time is stored in C2. The data in these worksheets are described in the Appendix of this Guide. Select these worksheets and repeat parts (a) (d) of problem 1, using C1 as the explanatory variable and C2 as the response variable. 3. A psychologist interested in job stress is studying the possible correlation between interruptions and job stress. A clerical worker who is expected to type, answer the phone, and do reception work has many interruptions. A store manager who has to help out in various departments as customers make demands also has interruptions. An accountant who is given tasks to accomplish each day and who is not expected to interact with other colleagues or customers except during specified meeting times has few interruptions. The psychologist rated a group of jobs for interruption level. The results follow, with X being interruption level of the job on a scale of 1 to 20, with 20 having the most interruptions, and Y the stress level on a scale of 1 to 50, with 50 the most stressed. Person X Y (a) Enter the X values into C1 and the Y values into C2. Use the menu selections Stat Basic Statistics Display Descriptive Statistics on the two columns. What is the mean of the Y-values? Of the X-values? What are the respective standard deviations? (b) Make a scatter plot of the data using the Stat Regression Fitted Line menu selection. From the diagram do you expect a positive or negative correlation?

10 Part III: MINITAB Guide 263 X 4 = Total dollar amount spent advertising ski sale in Denver newspapers Data for the past eight years is shown below (in thousands of dollars): Year X X X X (a) Enter the data in C1 C4. Name C1 = X1, C2 = X2, C3 = X3, C4 = X4. Use Stat Basic Statistics Display Description Statistics to study the data. (b) Next use Stat Basic Statistics Correlation menu option to see the correlation between each pair of columns of data.

11 264 Technology Guide Understandable Statistics, 8th Edition (c) Finally, we use Stat Regression Regression. Use X1 as the response variable with 3 predictors X2, X3, X4. Use the [Options] button and select Prediction values 21, 11, 8 so that you can see the predicted value of X1 for X2 = 21, X3 = 11, and X4 = 8. For this regression model, note the leastsquares equation, the standard error of estimate, and the coefficient of multiple determination R sq. Look at the P values of the coefficients. Remember we are testing the null hypothesis H 0: β 1 = 0. against the alternate hypothesis H1: β1 0. A P value less than α is evidence to reject H 0.

12 Part III: MINITAB Guide 265 Note that we will not use the results of the Analysis of Variance. LAB ACTIVITIES FOR MULTIPLE REGRESSION Use the Section 10.4 problems 3 6. Each of these problems has MINITAB worksheets stored on the CD-ROM.
