Simple linear regression model, y 5 a 1 bx 1 e

This model assumes that there is a line with slope b and

y intercept a, called the population regression line, such

that an observation deviates from the line by a random

amount e. The random deviation is assumed to have a

normal distribution with mean zero and standard deviation s, and random deviations for different observations

are assumed to be independent of one another.

Chapter 13 Simple Linear Regression and Correlation: Inferential Methods

Chapter Review Exercises 13.56 - 13.70

13.56 The effects of grazing animals on grasslands have

been the focus of numerous investigations by ecologists.

One such study, reported in “The Ecology of Plants,

Large Mammalian Herbivores, and Drought in Yellowstone National Park” (Ecology [1992]: 2043–2058),

proposed using the simple linear regression model to relate y 5 green biomass concentration (g/cm 3) to x 5

elapsed time since snowmelt (days).

a. The estimated regression equation was given as y^ 5

106.3 2 .640x. What is the estimate of average

change in biomass concentration associated with a

1-day increase in elapsed time?

b. What value of biomass concentration would you

predict when elapsed time is 40 days?

c. The sample size was n 5 58, and the reported value

of the coefficient of determination was .470. Does

this suggest that there is a useful linear relationship

between the two variables? Carry out an appropriate

test.

13.57 A random sample of n 5 347 students was selected, and each one was asked to complete several questionnaires, from which a Coping Humor Scale value x

and a Depression Scale value y were determined (“Depression and Sense of Humor,” (Psychological Reports

[1994]: 1473–1474). The resulting value of the sample correlation coefficient was 2.18.

a. The investigators reported that P-value , .05. Do

you agree?

b. Is the sign of r consistent with your intuition? Explain.

(Higher scale values correspond to more developed

sense of humor and greater extent of depression.)

c. Would the simple linear regression model give accurate predictions? Why or why not?

13.58 Example 13.4 gave data on x 5 treadmill run

time to exhaustion and y 5 20-km ski time for a sample

of 11 biathletes. Use the accompanying Minitab output

a. Carry out a test at significance level .01 to decide

whether the simple linear regression model is useful.

b. Estimate the average change in ski time associated

with a 1-minute increase in treadmill time, and do

so in a way that conveys information about the precision of estimation.

c. Minitab reported that sa1b1102 5 .689. Predict ski

time for a single biathlete whose treadmill time is 10

minutes, and do so in a way that conveys information about the precision of prediction.

d. Minitab also reported that sa1b1112 5 1.029. Why is

x

this larger than sa1b1102?

13.59 A sample of n 5 61 penguin burrows was selected, and values of both y 5 trail length (m) and x 5

soil hardness (force required to penetrate the substrate to

a depth of 12 cm with a certain gauge, in kg) were determined for each one (“Effects of Substrate on the Distribution of Magellanic Penguin Burrows,” The Auk

[1991]: 923–933). The equation of the least-squares line

was y^ 5 11.607 2 1.4187x, and r 2 5 .386.

a. Does the relationship between soil hardness and trail

length appear to be linear, with shorter trails associated with harder soil (as the article asserted)? Carry

out an appropriate test of hypotheses.

b. Using se 5 2.35, x 5 4.5, and g 1x 2 x 2 2 5 250,

predict trail length when soil hardness is 6.0 in a way

that conveys information about the reliability and

precision of the prediction.

c. Would you use the simple linear regression model to

predict trail length when hardness is 10.0? Explain

The article “Photocharge Effects in Dye Sensitized Ag[Br,I] Emulsions at Millisecond Range Exposures” (Photographic Science and Engineering [1981]:

How much of the observed variation in peak photovoltage can be explained by the model relationship?

Predict peak photovoltage when percent absorption

is 19.1, and compute the value of the corresponding

residual.

The authors claimed that there is a useful linear relationship between the two variables. Do you agree?

Carry out a formal test.

Give an estimate of the average change in peak photovoltage associated with a 1 percentage point increase in

light absorption. Your estimate should convey information about the precision of estimation.

Give an estimate of mean peak photovoltage when

percentage of light absorption is 20, and do so in a

way that conveys information about precision.

Reduced visual performance with increasing

age has been a much-studied phenomenon in recent

years. This decline is due partly to changes in optical

properties of the eye itself and partly to neural degeneration throughout the visual system. As one aspect of this

problem, the article “Morphometry of Nerve Fiber

Bundle Pores in the Optic Nerve Head of the Human”

(Experimental Eye Research [1988]: 559–568) presented the accompanying data on x 5 age and y 5 percentage of the cribriform area of the lamina scleralis occupied by pores.

believed that the average decrease in percentage area

associated with a 1-year age increase was .5%. Do the

data contradict this prior belief? State and test the appropriate hypotheses using a .10 significance level.

b. Estimate true average percentage area covered by

pores for all 50-year-olds in the population in a way

that conveys information about the precision of

Occasionally an investigator may wish to compute a confidence interval for a, the y intercept of the

true regression line, or test hypotheses about a. The estimated y intercept is simply the height of the estimated

line when x 5 0, since a 1 b(0) 5 a. This implies that

sa the estimated standard deviation of the statistic a, results from substituting x* 5 0 in the formula for sa1bx*.

The desired confidence interval is then

a. The article “Comparison of Winter-Nocturnal Geo-

stationary Satellite Infrared-Surface Temperature

with Shelter-Height Temperature in Florida” (Remote Sensing of the Environment [1983]: 313–327)

used the simple linear regression model to relate surface temperature as measured by a satellite (y) to actual air temperature (x) as determined from a thermocouple placed on a traversing vehicle. Selected data are

given (read from a scatterplot in the article).

result indicate that a 5 0 is plausible? Explain.

In some studies, an investigator has n (x, y)

pairs sampled from one population and m (x, y) pairs

from a second population. Let b and br denote the

slopes of the first and second population lines, respectively, and let b and bЈ denote the estimated slopes calculated from the first and second samples, respectively. The

investigator may then wish to test the null hypothesis

H0: b 2 br 5 0 (that is, b 5 br) against an appropriate

alternative hypothesis. Suppose that s 2, the variance

about the population line, is the same for both populations. Then this common variance can be estimated by

For each of these data sets, the values of the summary

quantities x, y, g 1x 2 x 2 2, and g 1x 2 x 2 1 y 2 y 2 are

identical, so all quantities computed from these will be

identical for the four sets: the estimated regression line,

SSResid, se, r 2, and so on. The summary quantities provide no way of distinguishing among the four data sets.

Based on a scatterplot for each set, comment on the

appropriateness or inappropriateness of fitting the simple

linear regression model in each case.

CR13.1 The article “You Will Be Tested on This” (The

Chronicle of Higher Education, June 8, 2007) describes

an experiment to investigate the effect of quizzes on student learning. The goal of the experiment was to determine if students who take daily quizzes have better endof-semester retention than students who attend the same

lectures and complete the same homework assignments

but who do not take the daily quizzes. Describe how you

would design such an experiment using the 400 students

enrolled in an introductory psychology course as

subjects.

CR13.2 The paper “Pistachio Nut Consumption and

Serum Lipid Levels” (Journal of the American College

of Nutrition [2007]: 141–148) describes a study to determine if eating pistachio nuts can have an effect on blood

cholesterol levels in people with high cholesterol. Fifteen

subjects followed their regular diet for 4 weeks and then

followed a diet in which 15% of the daily caloric intake

was from pistachio nuts for 4 weeks. Total blood cholesterol was measured for each subject at the end of each of

the 2 four-week periods, resulting in two samples (one

for the regular diet and one for the pistachio diet).

a. Are the two samples independent or paired?

Explain.

b. The mean difference in total cholesterol (regular

diet—pistachio diet) was 11 mg/dL. The standard

deviation of the differences was 24 mg/dL. Assume

that it is reasonable to regard the 15 study participants as representative of adults with high cholesterol and that total cholesterol differences are approximately normally distributed. Do the data

support the claim that eating the pistachio diet for

4 weeks is effective in reducing total cholesterol

level? Test the relevant hypotheses using a 5 .01.

CR13.4 The article “Odds Are, It’s Wrong” (Science

News, March 27, 2010) poses the following scenario:

Suppose that a test for steroid use among baseball

players is 95% accurate—that is, it correctly identifies actual steroid users 95% of the time, and misidentifies non-users as users 5 percent of the

time. . . . Now suppose, based on previous testing,

that experts have established that about 5 percent

of professional baseball players use steroids.

Answer the following questions for this scenario.

a. If 400 professional baseball players are selected at

random, how many would you expect to be steroid

users and how many would you expect to be

non-users?

b. How many of the steroid users would you expect to

test positive for steroid use?

c. How many of the players who do not use steroids

would you expect to test positive for steroid use (a

false positive)?

d. Use your answers to Parts (b) and (c) to estimate the

proportion of those who test positive for steroid use

who actually do use steroids.

e. Write a few sentences explaining why, in this scenario, the proportion of those who test positive for

steroid use who actually use steroids is not .95.

CR13.5 The press release “Luxury or Necessity? The

Public Makes a U-Turn” (Pew Research Center, April

23, 2009) summarizes results from a survey of a nationally representative sample of n 5 1003 adult Americans.

a. One question in the survey asked participants if they

think of a landline phone as a necessity or as a luxury

that they could do without. Sixty-eight percent said

they thought a landline phone was a necessity. Estimate the proportion of adult Americans who view a

landline phone as a necessity using a 95% confidence interval.

b. In the same survey, 52% said they viewed a television set as a necessity. Is there convincing evidence

that a majority of adult Americans view a television

set as a necessity? Test the relevant hypotheses using

a 5 .05.

c. The press release also described a survey conducted in

the 2003 sample regarded a microwave oven as a necessity, whereas only 47% of the 2009 sample said

they thought a microwave oven was a necessity. Assume that the sample size for the 2003 survey was also

1003. Is there convincing evidence that the proportion of adult Americans who regard a microwave oven

CR13.7 The following quote describing 18- to 29-yearolds is from the article “Study: Millennial Generation

More Educated, Less Employed” (USA Today, February

23, 2010): “38% have a tattoo (and half of those with

tattoos have two to five; 18% have six or more).” These

percentages were based on a representative sample of 830

Americans age 18 to 29, but for purposes of this exercise,

suppose that they hold for the population of all Americans in this age group. Define the random variable x 5

number of tattoos for a randomly selected American age

18 to 29. Find the following probabilities:

a. P 1x 5 02

b. P 1x 5 12

c. P 12 # x # 52

d. P 1x . 52

CR13.8 To raise revenues, many airlines now charge

fees to check luggage. Suppose that the number of

checked bags was recorded for each person in a random

sample of 100 airline passengers selected before fees were

imposed and also for each person in a random sample of

100 airline passengers selected after fees were imposed,

resulting in the accompanying data. Do the data provide

convincing evidence that the proportions in each of the

number of checked bags categories is not the same before

and after fees were imposed? Test the appropriate hypotheses using a significance level of .05.

CR13.10 Many people take ginkgo supplements advertised to improve memory. Are these over-the-counter

supplements effective? In a study reported in the paper

“Ginkgo for Memory Enhancement” (Journal of the

American Medical Association [2002]: 835–840),

elderly adults were assigned at random to either a treatment

group or a control group. The 104 participants who were

assigned to the treatment group took 40 mg of ginkgo

three times a day for 6 weeks. The 115 participants assigned to the control group took a placebo pill three times

a day for 6 weeks. At the end of 6 weeks, the Wechsler

Memory Scale (a test of short-term memory) was administered. Higher scores indicate better memory function.

Summary values are given in the following table.

Credit Cards in 2004” (Nellie Mae, May 2005) included

information collected from individuals in a random sample

of undergraduate students in the United States. Students

were classified according to region of residence and whether

or not they have one or more credit cards, resulting in the

accompanying two-way table. Carry out a test to determine

if there is evidence that region of residence and having a

credit card are not independent. Use a 5 .05.

CR13.15 The discharge of industrial wastewater into

rivers affects water quality. To assess the effect of a particular power plant on water quality, 24 water specimens

were taken 16 km upstream and 4 km downstream of the

plant. Alkalinity (mg/L) was determined for each specimen, resulting in the summary quantities in the accompanying table. Do the data suggest that the true mean

alkalinity is higher downstream than upstream by more

than 50 mg/L? Use a .05 significance level.

CR 13.18 The authors of the paper “Inadequate Physician Knowledge of the Effects of Diet on Blood Lipids

and Lipoproteins” (Nutrition Journal [2003]: 19–26)

summarize the responses to a questionnaire on basic

knowledge of nutrition that was mailed to 6000 physicians selected at random from a list of physicians licensed

in the United States. Sixteen percent of those who received the questionnaire completed and returned it. The

authors report that 26 of 120 cardiologists and 222 of

419 internists did not know that carbohydrate was the

diet component most likely to raise triglycerides.

a. Estimate the difference between the proportion of

cardiologists and the proportion of internists who

did not know that carbohydrate was the diet component most likely to raise triglycerides using a 95%

confidence interval.

b. What potential source of bias might limit your ability to generalize the estimate from Part (a) to the

populations of all cardiologists and all internists?

CHAPTER

Multiple

Regression

Analysis

The general objective of regression analysis is to model the

relationship between a dependent variable y and one or

more independent (i.e., predictor or explanatory) variables.

The simple linear regression model y ϭ a ϩ bx ϩ e, discussed in Chapter 13, has been used successfully by many

investigators in a wide variety of disciplines to relate y to a

single predictor variable x. In many situations, the relationship between y and any single predictor variable is not

strong, but knowing the values of several independent variables may considerably reduce uncertainty about the associated y value. For example, some variation in house prices

in a large city can certainly be attributed to house size, but

knowledge of size by itself would not usually enable a bank

appraiser to accurately predict a home’s value. Price is also determined to some extent

by other variables, such as age, lot size, number of bedrooms and bathrooms, and

distance from schools.

In this chapter, we extend the regression methodology developed in the previous

chapter to multiple regression models, which include at least two predictor variables.
