Regression Analysis
This presentation on Regression Analysis will relate to a simple regression model. Initially, the regression model and the regression equation will be explored. As well, there will be a brief look into estimated regression equation. This case study that will be used involves a large Chinese Food restaurant chain.
Business Case
In this instance, the restaurant chain 's management wants to determine the best locations in which to expand their restaurant business. So far the most successful locations have been near college campuses. This opinion is based on the positive numbers that quarterly sales (y) reflect and the size of the student population (x). Management 's mindset is that over all, the restaurants that are …show more content…

The Regression Equation is Y = 60 + 5(X) for calculating what population results in what gross dollars in sales per restaurant. We will demonstrate the underlying math for this table in the following text with the sample data again broken down.
The coefficient of determination = .903 indicating a strong relationship between variables exists.

Table 1 gives some details on the variables employed in the analysis. 4.1 Multicollinearity The purpose of regression analysis, we define first: N: Number of observation n: Number of independent variable y: Sample of ‘N’ observations on one dependent…

They have bivariate data detailing the stand 's coffee sales (denoted by [pic], in dollars) and the maximum temperature (denoted by [pic], in degrees Fahrenheit) for each of [pic] randomly selected days during the past year. The leastsquares regression equation computed from their data is [pic].…

1447 Words  6 PagesREGRESSION ANALYSIS Correlation only indicates the degree and direction of relationship between two variables. It does not, necessarily connote a causeeffect relationship. Even when there are grounds to believe the causal relationship exits, correlation does not tell us which variable is the cause and which, the effect. For example, the demand for a commodity and its price will generally be found to be correlated, but the question whether demand depends on price or viceversa; will not be answered…

Regression Analysis for Demand Estimation
1065 Words  5 PagesDemand Estimation by Regression Method – Some Statistical Concepts for application ( All the formulae marked in red for remembering. The rest is for your concept) In case of demand estimation working with data on sales and prices for a period of say 10 years may lead to the problem of identification. In such a case the different variables that may have changed over time other than price, may have an impact on demand more rather than price. In order to void this problem of identification what…

Regression Analysis For A Dependence Method
753 Words  4 PagesRegarding the testing of the hypotheses of this research, regression analysis or structural equation modelling techniques is best suited for a dependence method (Hair et al., 2014). We employed regression analysis to specify the extent to which the independent variables predicted the dependent variable. The analysis conducted in this study was therefore intended to test the hypotheses of the study. The regression output provided some measures which allow assessment of the hypotheses. Following from…

The data would also major on salestoemployee ratio. The study is carried out using quantitative research methods with findings and conclusions made on the same. The results show that the corporation employs less staff to sell its products thereby reducing instead of increasing the retail employment. Introduction Regression analysis is used to…

Regression and Correlation Analysis

Generate a scatterplot for CREDIT BALANCE vs. SIZE, including the graph of the "best fit" line. Interpret. The scatter plot of Credit balance ($) versus Size show that the slope of the 'best fit' line is upward (positive); this indicates that Credit balance varies directly with Size. As Size increases, Credit Balance also increases vice versa. MINITAB OUTPUT: Regression Analysis:…
