Question description


Week 4 - Assignment

Data Analysis: Correlation and Regression

Review the instructions for your Final Paper in Week Five of the course. 
For this week’s assignment, utilize the following
Excel data, which contains B.M.I., F.B.S., gender, and clinic
information for a group of children ages 10-14, to complete items four and five
of your Final Paper.   

 

  • Correlate F.B.S. with B.M.I.  What correlation
         coefficient will you use?  Why?  Report the correlation
         coefficient and explain whether this is a statistically significant
         correlation.  Explain what it means for two variables to have a
         statistically significant correlation.  The steps for running a
         correlation in Excel are described in Section 8.4 of your course text.
          
  • Run a simple linear regression predicting F.B.S. from
         B.M.I.  Report your results.  Does F.B.S. increase or decrease
         with B.M.I.?  What components of the output do you read and interpret
         to answer this question?  Write the regression equation and include
         it in your paper.  The steps for running a linear regression in Excel
         are described in Section 9.3 of your course text.
