The question being posed in this experiment is to understand whether or not pollution has an impact on the mortality rate. Taking data from 60 cities (n=60) where the responsive variable Y = mortality rate per population of 100,000, whose variables include Education, Percent of the population that is nonwhite, percent of population that is deemed poor, the precipitation, the amount sulfur dioxide, and amount of nitrogen dioxide.
Data:
60 Standard Metropolitan Statistical Area (SMSA) in the United States, obtained for the years 1959-1961. [Source: GC McDonald and JS Ayers, “Some applications of the ‘Chernoff Faces’: a technique for graphically representing multivariate data”, in Graphical Representation of Multivariate Data, Academic Press, 1978.
Taking the data, we can construct a matrix plot of the data in order to take a visible look at whether a correlation seems to exist or not prior to calculations.

Data Distribution:

Scatter Plot Matrix
As one can observe there seems to be a cluster of data situated on what appears to be a correlation of relationship between Y=Mortality rate and X= potential variables influencing Y.
From this we construct a correlation matrix in order to see a relationship in matrix form.

    Statistics is the science pertaining to the collection and analysis of data. It is the refinement of the ambiguous, the distilling of truth from the crudest of resources. For this reason, it is necessary to discern the simplest path from Point A to Point B, disregarding any unnecessary data that may lie in the path. This, however, is easier in theory than in practice, and statisticians have developed various techniques to help differentiate between causation, a variable directly related to phenomena, and association, a variable who 's changes occur concurrently with the phenomena, and could be causal or non-causal.…

    According to the data I’ve received, there are 6578 observations. The data base is composed by 13 columns and 506 rows. All the explanatory variables are continuous as well as the dependent variable and there are no categorical variables. My goal is to build a regression model to predict the average of Y or particular Y by a given X. 1. Do the regression assumptions such as Constant Variance, Normality and Independence and the correct functional hold for the model? By performing residual analysis, I can test the model. 2. Is there any relationship between the explanatory variables? I do multicollinearity test to test this condition. 3. I want to find out the confidence interval and prediction interval for the average Y and particular Y value. 4. In order to check the usefulness of the model and the relationship between X and Y, I consider several variables: i. Multiple Coefficient of Determination R2 and Radj2) ii. DWT iii. F Ratio iv. VIF value v. P Probability value.…

    Correlational analysis involves the 2-dimensional angle of the extent of correlation between the elements. This tool of analysis ascertains the interconnectedness of the elements in study and if there is, determines the extent of the link (Field, 2009). Pearson’s correlations and linear regressions are utilised to determine the interconnectedness amongst the elements. The collated data are separated by each element and linear regression analysis is undertaken to ascertain the extent of interconnectedness (Christensen,…
