Least Squares Regression Fitting a Line to Bivariate Data

3
Linear Relationships Avg. occupants per car n 1980: 6/car n 1990: 3/car n 2000: 1.5/car n By the year 2010 every fourth car will have nobody in it! Food for Thought n Kind of mathematical relationship between year and avg. no. of occupants per car? n Why might relation- ship break down by 2010?

4
Basic Terminology n Scatterplots, correlation: interested in association between 2 variables (assign x and y arbitrarily) n Least squares regression: does one quantitative variable explain or cause changes in another variable?

5
Basic Terminology (cont.) n Explanatory variable: explains or causes changes in the other variable; the x variable. (independent variable) n Response variable: the y -variable; it responds to changes in the x - variable. (dependent variable)

6
Examples n Fertilizer (x ) corn yield (y ) n Advertising $ (x ) store income (y ) n Drug dose (x ) blood pressure (y ) n Daily temperature (x ) natural gas demand (y ) n change in min wage(x) unemployment rate (y)

7
Simplest Relationship n Simplest equation that describes the dependence of variable y on variable x y = b 0 + b 1 x n linear equation n graph is line with slope b 1 and y- intercept b 0

8
Graph y x0 b0b0 y=b 0 +b 1 x run rise Slope b=rise/run

9
Notation n (x 1, y 1 ), (x 2, y 2 ),..., (x n, y n ) n draw the line y= b 0 + b 1 x through the scatterplot, the point on the line corresponding to x i is

10
Observed y, Predicted y predicted y when x=2.7 yhat = a + bx = a + b*2.7 2.7

11
Scatterplot: Fuel Consumption vs Car Weight “Best” line?

12
Scatterplot with least squares prediction line

13
How do we draw the line? Residuals

14
Residuals: graphically

15
Criterion for choosing what line to draw: method of least squares n The method of least squares chooses the line that makes the sum of squares of the residuals as small as possible n This line has slope b 1 and intercept b 0 that minimizes

16
Least Squares Line y = b 0 + b 1 x: Slope b 1 and Intercept b 0

17
Example: Income vs Consumption Expenditure

18
Questions n Construct scatterplot; determine if linear model is appropriate. If so … n … find the least squares prediction line n Estimate consumption expenditure in a household with an income of (i) $6,000 (ii) $25,000. Comfortable with estimates? n Compute the residuals

26
The least squares line always goes through the point with coordinates (x, y) ( x, y ) = ( 9, 8 )

The Least Squares Line Always goes Through ( x, y ) (x, y ) = (2.9, 4.39)

36
Using the least squares line for prediction. Fuel consumption of 3,000 lb car? (x=3)

37
Be Careful! Fuel consumption of 500 lb car? (x =.5) x =.5 is outside the range of the x-data that we used to determine the least squares line

38
Avoid GIGO! Evaluating the least squares line 1. Create scatterplot. Approximately linear? 2. Calculate r 2, the square of the correlation coefficient 3. Examine residual plot

39
r 2 : The Variation Accounted For n The square of the correlation coefficient r gives important information about the usefulness of the least squares line

40
r 2 : important information for evaluating the usefulness of the least squares line The square of the correlation coefficient, r 2, is the fraction of the variation in y that is explained by the least squares regression of y on x. -1 ≤ r ≤ 1 implies 0 ≤ r 2 ≤ 1 The square of the correlation coefficient, r 2, is the fraction of the variation in y that is explained by the variation in x.

41
Example: car weight, fuel consumption n x=car weight, y=fuel consumption r 2 = (.9766) 2 .95 About 95% of the variation in fuel consumption (y) is explained by the linear relationship between car weight (x) and fuel consumption (y). n What else affects fuel consumption? –Driver, size of engine, tires, road, etc.

42
Example: SAT scores

SAT scores: calculations

44
SAT scores: result r 2 = (-.868) 2 =.7534 If 57% of NC seniors take the SAT, the predicted mean score is

45
Avoid GIGO! Evaluating the least squares line 1. Create scatterplot. Approximately linear? 2. Calculate r 2, the square of the correlation coefficient 3. Examine residual plot

46
Residuals n residual=observed y - predicted y = y - y n Properties of residuals 1.The residuals always sum to 0 (therefore the mean of the residuals is 0) 2.The least squares line always goes through the point (x, y)

47
Graphically residual = y - y y y i y i e i =y i - y i X x i

48
Residual Plot n Residuals help us determine if fitting a least squares line to the data makes sense n When a least squares line is appropriate, it should model the underlying relationship; nothing interesting should be left behind n We make a scatterplot of the residuals in the hope of finding… NOTHING!
