Unformatted text preview: iction (Forecasting) Dummy Variables Confounding: Example Glucose levels above 125 mg/dL are diagnostic of diabetes, while levels in the range 100-125 mg/dL signal increased risk of progression to this serious and increasingly widespread condition. So it is of interest to determine exercise, a modifiable lifestyle factor, would help people reduce their glucose level and thus avoid diabetes. An observational study of women participants was conducted to see whether exercise might help to prevent progression to diabetes among women at risk. The data was sent to you by email this morning.

Fit a simple linear regression (SLR) of glucose on exercise and interpret the results. Note that analysis should exclude diabetic participants. Age, alcohol use and body mass index were also measured. Fit a multiple linear regression (MLR) of Glucose on exercise, age, alcohol use and BMI, and interpret the results. Compare the estimated regression coefficient of exercise in the SLR and and the partial regression coefficient of exercise in MLR.
