My Notes
A forensic psychologist tests the extent to which the age of a criminal (X) predicts the age of the victim (Y) for nonviolent crimes. The psychologist uses the case files to record the age of five criminals
and the age of the victim in those cases. The hypothetical data are listed in the following table.
Age of Criminal
Age of Victim
X
Y
32
25
24
