Question

The Data

Data collected on n = 109 countries in 1995. Data collected on k

= 25 variables.

The variables

1.        Population Size (in 1000s)

2.        Density = Number of people/Sq kilometer

3.        Urban = percentage of population living in cities

4.        Religion

5.        lifeexpf = Average female life expectancy

6.        lifeexpm = Average male life expectancy

7.        literacy = % of population who read

8.        pop_inc = % increase in popn size (1995)

9.        babymort = Infant mortality (deaths per 1000)

10.    gdp_cap = Gross domestic product/capita

11.    Region = Region or economic group

12.    calories = Daily calorie intake.

13.    aids = Number of aids cases

14.    birth_rt = Birth rate per 1000 people

15.    death_rt = death rate per 1000 people

16.    aids_rt = Number of aids cases/100000 people

17.    log_gdp = log10(gdp_cap)

18.    log_aidsr = log10(aids_rt)

19.    b_to_d =birth to death ratio

20.    fertility = average number of children in family

21.    log_pop = log10(population)

22.    cropgrow = ??

23.    lit_male = % of males who can read

24.    lit_fema = % of females who can read

25.    Climate = predominant climate


Objective of assignment

1.        Explore the data using multiple Linear Regression

2.        Select one (or several) interesting dependent variables

3.        For each dependent variable, select a set of independent variables. Perform multiple linear regression.

4.     Interpret the results
