MOD 5 SLP – ANOVA & Least Squares
For this assignment use regression to complete the assignment below:
Use information from the modular background readings as well as any good quality resource you can find. Please cite all sources and provide a reference list at the end of your paper.
The following items will be assessed in particular:
- Identify when the Least Squares method should be used.
- Describe ANOVA and identify when the ANOVA method should be used.
Take your data and arrange it in the order you collected it. Count the total number of observations you have, and label this number N. Then create another set of data starting from one and increasing by one until you reach N. For example, if you have 10 observations, then your new set of data would be (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10). This set of data is called a time series. Run a regression using your original set of data as your dependent variable, and your time series as an independent variable. Use the simple regression calculation page to calculate your regression. Write a paper reporting your results and any conclusions that can be reached with it.
