Problem Statement
The owner of Pizza Corner, Bangalore would like to build a regression model consisting of six well defined explanatory variables to predict the sales of pizzas. The six variables are: X1 X2 X3 X4 X5 X6 : : : : : : Number of delivery boys Cost (in Rupees) of advertisements (000s) Number of outlets Varieties of pizzas Competitors activities index Number of existing customers (000s)

Sales data of past fifteen months and the above listed variables is given below: SALES DATA FOR PIZZA Month 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 Sales 81 23 18 8 16 4 29 22 15 6 45 11 20 60 5 X1 15 10 7 2 4 1 4 7 5 3 13 2 5 12 1 X2 20 12 11 6 10 5 14 12 10 5 17 9 12 18 5 X3 35 10 14 9 11 6 15 16 18 8 20 10 15 30 6 X4 17 13 14 13 12 12 15 16 15 13 14 12 12 15 12 X5 4 4 3 3 4 5 2 3 4 2 2 3 3 4 5 X6 70 43 31 10 17 8 39 40 30 16 30 20 25 50 20

a. Predictors: (Constant), X6, X5, X4, X1, X3, X2 b. Dependent Variable: Sales R is the correlation between the observed and predicted values of dependent variable.

R-Square 95.3 % of variation is explained by model. This is the proportion of variance in the dependent variable (Sales) which can be explained by the independent variables (X6, X5, X4, X1, X3, and X2). This is an overall measure of the strength of association and does not reflect the extent to which any particular independent variable is associated with the dependent variable.

Adjusted R-square 91.8 % of variation in sales is explained by model- adjusted for number of independent variables and sample size.

Std. Error of the Estimate - This is also referred to as the root mean squared error. It is the standard deviation of the error term and the square root of the Mean Square for the Residuals in the ANOVA table

Sum of Squares - These are the Sum of Squares associated with the three sources of variance, Total, Regression and Residual. The Total variance is partitioned into the variance which can be explained by the independent variables (Regression) and the variance which is not explained by the independent variables (Residual). df - These are the degrees of freedom associated with the sources of variance. The total variance has 14 (N-1) degrees of freedom. The Regression degrees of freedom correspond to the number of coefficients estimated minus 1. Including the intercept, there are 7 coefficients, so the model has 7-1=6 degrees of freedom. The Error degrees of freedom are the DF total minus the DF model, 14 - 6 =8. Mean Square - These are the Mean Squares, the Sum of Squares divided by their respective DF.

F and Sig. - This is the F-statistic the p-value associated with it. The F-statistic is the Mean Square (Regression) divided by the Mean Square (Residual): 1068.144/39.192 = 27.254. The p-value is compared to some alpha level in testing the null hypothesis that all of the model coefficients are 0. H0: 1 = 2= 3=4= 5= 6=0 H1: Not all j are 0 In this model we reject H0 and can conclude that not all j are 0 as p-value is 0 Sales depends significantly upon some predictors.

Controlling other variables constant, if Number of delivery boys is increased by 1 then Sales will increase by 0.919 Controlling other variables constant, if cost (in rupees) of ads (000s) is increased by 1 then Sales will increase by 0.699 Controlling other variables constant, if Number of outlets is increased by 1 then Sales will increase by 1.620 Controlling other variables constant, if varieties of pizza is increased by 1 then Sales will decrease by 1.978 Controlling other variables constant, if Competitors activities index is increased by 1 then Sales will increase by 0.067 Controlling other variables constant, if Number of existing customers (000s) is increased by 1 then Sales will increase by 0.242

Std. Error: These are the standard errors associated with the coefficients. Beta - These are the standardized coefficients. By standardizing the variables before running the regression, you have put all of the variables on the same scale, and you can compare the magnitude of the coefficients to see which one has more of an effect. We can interpret these coefficients in same way as we did B values. Here B for constant is 0. Look for the regression coefficient having the highest magnitude. Corresponding regressor contributes the most.

T and Sig. - These are the t-statistics and their associated 2-tailed p-values used in testing whether a given coefficient is significantly different from zero. Using an alpha of 0.05: o The coefficient for X1 (0.919) is not significantly related to dependent variable because its pvalue is 0.342, which is greater than 0.05. The coefficient for X2 (0.699) is not significantly related to dependent variable because its pvalue is 0.606, which is greater than 0.05. The coefficient for X3 (1.620) is significantly related to dependent variable because its p-value is 0.031, which is less than 0.05. 6

The coefficient for X4 (-1.978) is not significantly related to dependent variable because its pvalue is 0.417, which is greater than 0.05. The coefficient for X5 (0.067) is not significantly related to dependent variable because its pvalue is 0.977, which is greater than 0.05. The coefficient for X6 (0.242) is not significantly related to dependent variable because its pvalue is 0.442, which is greater than 0.05.

Tolerance - The tolerance of a variable is defined as 1 minus the squared multiple correlation of this variable with all other independent variables in the regression equation. Therefore, the smaller the tolerance of a variable, the more redundant is its contribution to the regression (i.e., it is redundant with the contribution of other independent variables). Small value of Tolerance indicates multicollinearity. VIF it is equal to 1/Tolerance. High value (more than 10) of VIF indicates multicollinearity. Collinearity Diagnosticsa Variance Proportions

1. Check for Multicollinearity


Multicollinearity is a statistical phenomenon in which two or more predictor variables in a multiple regression model are highly correlated. In this situation the coefficient estimates may change erratically in response to small changes in the model or the data. Multicollinearity does not reduce the predictive power or reliability of the model as a whole, at least within the sample data themselves; it only affects calculations regarding individual predictors. That is, a multiple regression model with correlated predictors can indicate how well the entire bundle of predictors predicts the outcome variable, but it may not give valid results about any individual predictor, or about which predictors are redundant with respect to others. The primary concern is that as the degree of multicollinearity increases, the regression model estimates of the coefficients become unstable and the standard errors for the coefficients can get wildly inflated.

VIF Test: Since VIF value of Variable X2 is greater than 10 (13.733) in Coefficients table there is presence of collinearity

Eigen Value Test: Very small Eigen value (.001) of 7th dimension and very high value of its corresponding Condition index (74.026) in Collinearity Diagnostics table indicates presence of collinearity.

Pearson Correlation: Correlations Sales Pearson Sales Correlation X1 X2 X3 X4 X5 X6 1.000 .902 .934 .953 .725 -.040 .880 1.000 .905 .845 .672 -.103 .841 1.000 .904 .702 -.189 .867 1.000 .794 -.036 .856 1.000 -.178 .819 1.000 .006 1.000 X1 X2 X3 X4 X5 X6

If the absolute value of Pearson correlation is greater than 0.9, collinearity is very likely to exist. Values in Bold indicate multicollinearity.

Statistical Test From the above correlations table we can see that Pearson correlation between (X1, Sales) is .902, (X2, Sales) is .934 Corresponding P-value of X1 and X2 are .342 and .606 resp. Considering 10 % level of significance these high p values does not suggest rejection of H0: j =0. So via T-test we conclude that X1 and X2 are not significantly related to dependent variable. So there is presence of collinearity as Pearson correlations and T-test present contradictory information.

Method Stepwise (Criteria: Probability-of-F-to-enter <= .050, Probability-of-F-toremove >= .100). Stepwise (Criteria: Probability-of-F-to-enter <= .050, Probability-of-F-toremove >= .100).

X3

X1

a. Dependent Variable: Sales Here we can see in first iteration X3 is entered because it has highest r value correlation with Sales (Check from correlation table)

10

Variables are only added or removed if the Sig F Change value is significant. For this SPSS performs regression between Y and (X3,X1), Y and (X3,X2) and so on till Y and (X3,X6) It calculates then F (1,n-3)= (SSR(X3,XI)-SSR(X3))/MSSE(X3,XI) for all (X3,XI) combinations It then includes XI which has maximum F ratio o This value can be obtained from the table of Excluded Variables. It shows the Partial Correlation between each candidate for entry and the dependent variable. o Partial correlation is a measure of the relationship of the dependent variable to an independent variable, where the variance explained by previously entered independent variables has been removed from both. o From the Excluded Variables table we can see X1 has maximum partial correlation .594 and minimum p-value .025. So X1 is next variable to be entered subjected to whether resulting model with Sales as dependent variable and (X1, X3) as independent variable improve R

The process of adding more variables stops when all of the available variables have been included or when it is not possible to make a statistically significant improvement in R using any of the variables not yet included.

T stat and Sig for Model 2 o The coefficient for X1 (1.640) is significantly related to dependent variable because its p-value is 0.025, which is less than 0.05. o The coefficient for X3 (1.753) is significantly related to dependent variable because its p-value is 0.000, which is less than 0.05.

B Values for Model 2 o Controlling other variables constant, if Number of delivery boys is increased by 1 then Sales will increase by 0.1.640 o Controlling other variables constant, if Number of outlets is increased by 1 then Sales will increase by 1.753

Since VIF value of Variable X1 and X3 is less than 10 (3.498) in Coefficients table we can safely say there is no multicollinearity. Other parameters are explained in section 3

Predictors in the Model: (Constant), X3, X1 T test and Sig o Model 1 X1 and X2 are eligible to enter after iteration 1 as both have p-value less than .05. But X1 has higher partial correlation so it enters in second iteration. X4, X5, and X6 have high p-value > .05 so H0: j =0 is not rejected. So Sales is not significantly dependent on X4, X5, and X6. o Model 2

15

X2, X4, X5, and X6 have high p-value > .05 so H0: j =0 is not rejected. So Sales is not significantly dependent on X2, X4, X5, and X6.

So final model has only significant dependence on X3 and X1
