Assignment 1 "Making Decisions Based on Demand and Forecasting"

Domino’s Pizza is considering entering the marketplace in your community. Conduct research about the demographics of your community, for example the population size and average income per household, and other independent variables, such as price of pizza and price of soda, for this assignment.

1.Report the demographic and independent variables that are relevant to complete a demand analysis providing a rationale for the selection of the variables.
2.Using Excel or other calculation software, input the data you collected in criterion oneto calculate an estimated regression. Then, from the calculation provided, interpret the coefficient of determination indicating how it will influence your decision to open the pizza business. Explain any additional variables that may improve the coefficient of determination.
3.Test the statistical significance of the variables and the regression equation indicating how it will impact your decision to open the pizza business.
4.Forecast the demand for pizza in your community for the next four months in your community, using the regression equation including the assumptions that were used to create the demand. Justify the assumptions made related to the forecast.
5.Based on the forecasting demand, determine whether Dominos should establish a restaurant in your community. Provide a rational and support for the decision.
