Question 6:

A regression analysis is performed on a set of paired scores of annual income and years of schooling. The resulting regression equation is Y’=40000+2000(X). What is the predicted annual income for someone with 15 years of schooling?

$100,000

$42,000

$70,000

$60,000

In a regression analysis, the sum of squares for the predicted scores (SSY’) is 100 and the total sum of squares (SSY) is 300. What is the proportion of the variance in Y explained by X (r2)?

0.333

2.0

200

0.500
