Next couple of lectures 4/22/14Logic of hypothesis testing with Correlations

Interpreting the Correlations and scatterplots

Simple and Multiple Regression

Using correlation for predictions

r versus r2

Regression uses the predictor variable (independent) to make predictions about the predicted variable (dependent)Coefficient of correlation is name for “r”Coefficient of determination is name for “r2”(remember it is always positive – no direction info)Standard error of the estimate is our measure of the variability of the dots around the regression line(average deviation of each data point from the regression line – like standard deviation)

Coefficient of regression will “b” for each variable (like slope)

Regression Example

Rory is an owner of a small software company and employs 10 sales staff. Rory send his staff all over the world consulting, selling and setting up his system. He wants to evaluate his staff in terms of who are the most (and least)productive sales people and also whether more sales calls actually result in more systems being sold. So, he simply measures the number of sales calls made by each sales person and how many systems they successfully sold.

Step 4: Is it a significant correlation?

Do more sales calls result in more sales made?

- Step 4: Is it a significant correlation?
- n = 10, df = 8
- alpha = .05
- Observed r is larger than critical r
- (0.71 > 0.632)
- therefore we reject the null hypothesis.
- Yes it is a significant correlation
- r (8) = 0.71; p < 0.05

Step 3: Calculate r

Step 4: Is it a significant correlation?

Residuals: Evaluating Staff

Step 1: Compare expected sales levels to actual sales levels

70-55.3=14.7

Difference between

expected Y’ and actual Y

is called “residual”

(it’s a deviation score)

Does the prediction line perfectly the predicted variable when using the predictor variable?

No, we are wrong sometimes…

How can we estimate how much “error” we have?

The green lines show how

much “error” there is in our

prediction line…how much

we are wrong in our predictions

Any

Residuals?

Perfect correlation = +1.00 or -1.00

Each variable perfectly

No variability in the scatterplot

The dots approximate a straight line

Residual scores

How do we find the average amount of error in our prediction

Ava is 14.7

Jacob is -23.7

Emily is -6.8

Madison is 7.9

The average amount by which actual scores

deviate on either side of the predicted score

Step 1: Find error for each value

(it’s a deviation score)

Step 2: Add up the residuals

These would be helpful to know by heart – please memorize

these formula

Regression Analysis – Least Squares Principle

When we calculate the regression line we try to:

- minimize distance between predicted Ys and actual (data) Y points (length of green lines)
- remember because of the negative and positive values cancelling each other out we have to square those distance (deviations)
- so we are trying to minimize the “sum of squares of the vertical distances between the actual Y values and the predicted Y values”

How well does the prediction line predict the predicted variable when using the predictor variable?What if we want to know the “average deviation score”? Finding the standard error of the estimate (line)

Standard error

of the estimate (line)

Standard error of the estimate:

- a measure of the average amount of predictive error

- the average amount that Y’ scores differ from Y scores

- a mean of the lengths of the green lines

- Slope doesn’t give “variability” info
- Intercept doesn’t give “variability info

- Correlation “r” does give “variability info

- Residuals do give “variability info

A note about curvilinear

relationships and patterns

of the residuals

How well does the prediction line predict the Ys from the Xs?

Residuals

- Shorter green lines suggest better prediction – smaller error

- Longer green lines suggest worse prediction – larger error

- Why are green lines vertical?
- Remember, we are predicting the variable on the Y axis
- So, error would be how we are wrong about Y (vertical)

Assumptions Underlying Linear Regression

- For each value of X, there is a group of Y values

- These Y values are normally distributed.
- The means of these normal distributions of Y values all lie on the straight line of regression.

- The standard deviations of these normal distributions are equal.

Which minimizes error better?

Is the regression line better than just guessing the mean of the Y variable?How much does the information about the relationship actually help?

How much better does the regression line predict the observed results?

r2

Wow!

What is r2?

r2 = The proportion of the total variance in one variable that is

predictable by its relationship with the other variable

Examples

If mother’s and daughter’s heights are

correlated with an r = .8, then what amount (proportion or percentage)

of variance of mother’s height is accounted for by daughter’s height?

.64 because (.8)2 = .64

What is r2?

r2 = The proportion of the total variance in one variable that is

predictable for its relationship with the other variable

Examples

If mother’s and daughter’s heights are

correlated with an r = .8, then what proportion of variance of mother’s height

is not accounted for by daughter’s height?

.36 because (1.0 - .64) = .36

or

36% because 100% - 64% = 36%

What is r2?

r2 = The proportion of the total variance in one variable that is

predictable for its relationship with the other variable

Examples

If ice cream sales and temperature are correlated with an

r = .5, then what amount (proportion or percentage) of variance of ice cream sales is accounted for by temperature?

.25 because (.5)2 = .25

What is r2?

r2 = The proportion of the total variance in one variable that is

predictable for its relationship with the other variable

Examples

If ice cream sales and temperature are correlated with an

r = .5, then what amount (proportion or percentage) of variance of ice cream sales is not accounted for by temperature?

.75 because (1.0 - .25) = .75

or

75% because 100% - 25% = 75%

Some useful terms

- Regression uses the predictor variable (independent) to make predictions about the predicted variable (dependent)
- Coefficient of correlation is name for “r”
- Coefficient of determination is name for “r2”(remember it is always positive – no direction info)
- Standard error of the estimate is our measure of the variability of the dots around the regression line(average deviation of each data point from the regression line – like standard deviation)

Writing Assignment - 5 Questions

1. What is regression used for?

- Include and example

Regressions are used to take advantage of relationships

between variables described in correlations. We choose a value

on the independent variable (on x axis) to predict values for

the dependent variable (on y axis).

Writing Assignment - 5 Questions

2. What is a residual? How would you find it?

Residuals are the difference between our predicted y (y’)

and the actual y data points. Once we choose a value on our

independent variable and predict a value for our dependent

variable, we look to see how close our prediction was. We

are measuring how “wrong” we were, or the amount of “error”

for that guess.
