Earnings and gender The data in the table show the average earnings of year-round full-time workers by gender for several different levels of educational attainment. Use linear regression to find the linear equation that is the best for these data, with x representing the earnings for males and y representing the earnings for females. Find and interpret the slope of the linear regression line. If you made a similar linear model with data from 1965, how do you think its slope would compare with the slope found in part (b)? Explain.
