Lecture 6. Regression with Dummy Variables Example . Again we consider the Albuquerque Home Prices. Now we shall add one more regressor, namely custom build or not, to our MLR model of prices vs. square footage and age. Information about a type of house is coded as 1 for custom build and 0 otherwise. > l<-lm(data$PRICE~data$SQFT+data$AGE+data$CUST) > summary(l) Call: lm(formula = 100 * data$PRICE ~ data$SQFT + data$AGE + data$CUST) Residuals: Min 1Q Median 3Q Max -56871.580 -9368.399 2.080 8506.354 63302.217 Coefficients: Estimate Std.

The obtained adjusted R 2 of 81% is also slightly higher than for the old MLR model with 79% for R 2 . The new MLR takes the form PRICE = 7248 . 077 + 63 . 914SQFT-428 . 913AGE + 14931CUST + . (6.1) Hence, we can expect to pay about $14,931 more for a custom build house. 1...
