Chap 12-3

Correlation Analysis
Correlation analysis is used to measure
strength of the association (linear relationship)
between two variables
Correlation is only concerned with strength of the
relationship
No causal effect is implied with correlation
Correlation was first presented in Chapter 3

## Statistics for Business and Economics, 6e 2007 Pearson Education, Inc.

Chap 12-4

Correlation Analysis
The population correlation coefficient is
denoted (the Greek letter rho)
The sample correlation coefficient is

sxy

sx sy
where

s xy

## Hypothesis Test for Correlation

To test the null hypothesis of no linear
association,

H0 : 0

## the test statistic follows the Students t

distribution with (n 2 ) degrees of freedom:

Introduction to
Regression Analysis
Regression analysis is used to:
Predict the value of a dependent variable based on
the value of at least one independent variable
Explain the impact of changes in an independent
variable on the dependent variable
Dependent variable: the variable we wish to explain
(also called the endogenous variable)

## Independent variable: the variable used to explain

the dependent variable
(also called the exogenous variable)

Chap 12-8

## Linear Regression Model

The relationship between X and Y is
described by a linear function
Changes in Y are assumed to be caused by
changes in X

## Linear regression population equation model

Yi 0 1xi i
Where 0 and 1 are the population model
coefficients and is a random error term.

## Least Squares Estimators

b0 and b1 are obtained by finding the values
of b0 and b1 that minimize the sum of the
squared differences between y and y :

## min SSE min ei2

min (y i y i )2
min [y i (b0 b1xi )]2

## Finding the Least Squares

Equation
The coefficients b0 and b1 , and other
regression results in this chapter, will be
found using a computer

Statistical routines are built into Excel

Chap 12-15

## Linear Regression Model

Assumptions
The true relationship form is linear (Y is a linear function
of X, plus random error)
The error terms, i are independent of the x values
The error terms are random variables with mean 0 and
constant variance, 2
(the constant variance property is called homoscedasticity)

E[ i ] 0 and E[ i ] 2

## The random error terms, i, are not correlated with one

another, so that
E[ i j ] 0
Statistics for Business and Economics, 6e 2007 Pearson Education, Inc.

for all i j
Chap 12-16

Interpretation of the
Slope and the Intercept
b0 is the estimated average value of y
when the value of x is zero (if x = 0 is
in the range of observed x values)

## b1 is the estimated change in the

average value of y as a result of a
one-unit change in x

A real estate agent wishes to examine the
relationship between the selling price of a home

Interpretation of the
Intercept, b0
house price 98.24833 0.10977 (square feet)
b0 is the estimated average value of Y when the
value of X is zero (if X = 0 is in the range of
observed X values)
Here, no houses had 0 square feet, so b0 = 98.24833
just indicates that, for houses within the range of
sizes observed, \$98,248.33 is the portion of the
house price not explained by square feet

Chap 12-25

Interpretation of the
Slope Coefficient, b1
house price 98.24833 0.10977 (square feet)

## b1 measures the estimated change in the

average value of Y as a result of a oneunit change in X
Here, b1 = .10977 tells us that the average value of a
house increases by .10977(\$1000) = \$109.77, on
average, for each additional one square foot of size

When using a regression model for prediction,
only predict within the relevant range of data

## Estimating Mean Values and

Predicting Individual Values
Goal: Form intervals around y to express
uncertainty about the value of y for a given xi
Confidence
Interval for
the expected
value of y,
given xi

y = b0+b1xi

Prediction Interval
for an single
observed y, given xi

## Confidence Interval for

the Average Y, Given X
Confidence interval estimate for the
expected value of y given a particular xi
Confidence interval for E(Yn1 | Xn1 ) :
y n1 t n2,/2 se

1 (x n1 x)2

2
n (x i x)

(xn1 x)2

## so the size of interval varies according to the distance

xn+1 is from the mean, x

## Prediction Interval for

an Individual Y, Given X
Confidence interval estimate for an actual
observed value of y given a particular xi
Confidenceinterval for y n1 :
