Multiple regression is an effective technique to identify a relationship between one dependent variable and multiple independent variables. It is hypothesized the property crime rates per thousand inhabitants is dependent on multiple factors such as per capita income, school dropout percentage, population density, percentage of people living in urban area and so on. In order to establish a certain relationship between the variables, multiple regression was used. While crimes is the dependent variable, other variables such as state, per capita income, dropouts, average precipitation, public aid recipients, population density, unemployment, percentage of people living in urban areas were considered as independent variable. Minitab was used to perform multiple regression analysis. It was found that only two variables had a significant relationship with the variable crime rates: dropouts and urban. It was found that as percentage of dropouts increased, the crime rate per thousand inhabitants also increased. It is also evident from the data set that urban areas are having higher crime rates as compared to rural areas. Other variables included in the study did not have much impact on the dependent variable. The first column of the table below shows the regression coefficient of all the independent variables. The second column contains the standard error of the regression coefficient. The standard error of all the variables is the distance of the standard value from its true value. ...

Multiple Regression
We use a State-wide data set that includes a record of property crimes rates (CRIMES) as well as a record on per capita income (PINCOME), school dropout rates (DROPOUT), precipitation amounts (PRECIP), percentage of public aid recipients (PUBAID), population density (DENSITY), public aid for families with kids in terms of dollars received (KIDS), percentage of unemployed workers (UNEMPLOY), percentage of population living in urban areas. The methodology that we use is that of multiple regression analysis to obtain the magnitude and signs of the coefficients and t and F-tests obtain whether the…

Despite the fact that there are numerous factors affecting the housing market, this paper will focus mainly on these four factors since they are the greatest determinants of the housing market. The comparison between real house prices and unemployment rates is rather an interesting one. The 1970s and 1980s national housing bubbles showed the true relationship between unemployment and house prices. The data from the housing bubbles indicated that real house prices declined until the rate of unemployment was at peak. Following the late 1980s housing bubbles, the Caser-Shiller index was of the…

Statistics 401 Mod 5 Case - Multiple Regression Analysis
In the normal regression analysis, we usually use regression to establish the relationship between a variable and another variable. In such a case, it is establish whether or not the changes in one of the variables affect the other variable. The one which is affected is the dependent variable because it depends on the changes of the other so as to have its changed value. The one which is being depended upon to change is the independent variable because it changes on its own. This is for instance in the case where harvest from a corn field is being tested to establish whether or not it has a…

Multiple Regression
Simple regression analysis is used to establish the relationship between one variable and the other. One set of the variables is the dependent variable and the other set is the independent variable. The independent variable changes and in turn affects the dependent variable. Simple regression is used to establish whether or not indeed the independent variable determines the change that takes place in the dependent variable. It is also used to establish the way in which the two variables are related, such that on having one of the variables, it is possible to predict its corresponding value…
