Listed below are annual data for various years. The data are weights (metric tons) of imported lemons and car
crash fatality rates per 100,000 population. Construct a scatterplot, find the value of the linear correlation coefficient r, and find the P-value using alphaα =0.05
Is there sufficient evidence to conclude that there is a linear correlation between lemon imports and crash fatality rates? Do the results suggest that imported lemons cause car fatalities?
The linear correlation coefficient r is
The test statistic t is
The P-value is
