© 2007 by Harvey A. Singer 8 A software firm collected data for a sample of 20 computer programmers. A suggestion was made that regression analysis could be used to determine if salary was related to the years of experience and the score on the firm’s programmer aptitude test. The years of experience, score on the aptitude test, and corresponding annual salary ($1000’s) for a sample of 20 programmers chosen at random is shown in the table on the next slide.
