Expenditures on the criminal justice system is an area of continually rising cost in the U.S. This question examines the relationship between the total number of police employed in an American state, and the total spending on the state’s criminal justice system (in millions of dollars US) for the 50 American states. The base 10 logarithm of each variable was taken before fitting the model. The variables are named logpol and logexp . Some output from SAS is given below. Seven of the numbers have been replaced by upper case letters.

A=1 B=48 C=5.393 D=0.2038 E=0.101 F=0.570 G=0.0245 2 Continued (b) (3 marks) Construct simultaneous 90% confidence intervals for the slope and intercept of the regression line. Use the Bonferroni method. Critical value: t 48; . 05 / 2 = 2 . 021 (approximating with 40 df) CI for slope: 1 . 216 ± 2 . 021(0 . 524) = ( . 142 , 2 . 275) CI for intercept: . 773 ± 2 . 021(1 . 356) = ( 1 . 967 , 3 . 513) (c) (4 marks) Carry out an hypothesis test to determine whether or not the data give evidence that the coefficient of logexp is greater than 1. H : β 1 ≤ 1 versus H a : β 1 > 1 Test statistic: t obs = 1 . 216 1 . 524 = . 412 pvalue: . 3 < p < . 4 The data give no evidence that the slope is greater than one. 3 Continued (d) (5 marks) The District of Columbia (not one of the 50 states but a separate region of the U.S.) spends 1,217,000,000 (1,217 million) dollars on its criminal justice system. Predict how many police officers it has. Construct a 99% interval for your value. Express your answer as a count of the number of police....
