Statistics 512: Problem Set No. 6 Due October 23, 2009 For the following 3 problems use the computer science data that we have been dis- cussing in class. You can get a copy of the data set csdata.dat from the class website. The variables are: id , a numerical identifier for each student; GPA , the grade point average after three semesters; HSM ; HSS ; HSE ; SATM ; SATV , which were all explained in class; and GENDER , coded as 1 for men and 2 for women. 1. In a data step, create a new variable GENDERW that has values 1 for women and 0 for men (use arithmetic on the original variable GENDER ). Run a regression to predict GPA using the explanatory variables HSM , HSS , HSE , SATM , SATV ,and GENDERW . (Do not include any interaction terms.) (a) Give the equation of the fitted regression line using all six explanatory variables. (b) Give the fitted regression line for women (use part a).
