R for Chapter 4 Running List of Functions Applied to the Data Set, data.class: > attach(data.class) > reg < - lm(weight ~ height) >summary(reg) ## Suppose we want to find three confidence intervals for the average weight at heights ## height = 60, 65 and 70 inches, respectively. Moreover, we want these intervals to simultaneously ## contain their means with a probability of at least .88. > predict(reg,newdata=data.frame(height=c(60,65,70)),se.fit=TRUE, interval="confidence", pred.var=TRUE,level=.96) ## Suppose now we want to predict the weight of three individuals at heights ## height = 60, 65 and 70 inches, respectively. Moreover, we want these three prediction intervals ## to simultaneously contain their weights with a probability of at least .88. > predict(reg,newdata=data.frame(height=c(60,65,70)),se.fit=TRUE, interval="predict", pred.var=TRUE,level=.96) ## We now seek to graph 95% confidence intervals and prediction intervals ## over the range of possible X values, forming bands around the fitted line. ## This is NOT a band that covers all possible X values simultaneously with probability .95
