Describe in Detail

(i) Show that the arithmetic mean of (positive) regression coefficients is greater than the correlation coefficient.

(ii) What is the value of the product of geometric mean of variances and the geometric mean of regression coefficients?

Explanation

(i) The arithmetic mean of regression coefficients is 12(bYX+bXY) and the correlation coefficient is r.

12(bYX+bXY)>r

Describe in Detail

For a trivariate population, it is given that:

σ 1 =3, σ 2 =4, σ 3 =5, r 12 =0.7, r 13 =0.6, r 23 =0.4

Compute all partial and multiple correlation coefficients.

Explanation

Given that there are three variable X 1, X 2, X 3 for a trivariate population. The partial correlation coefficient is between any two variable eliminating the third variable. So, the parital correlation between X 1 and X 2 is

r12.3=r12r13… (343 more words) …

Describe in Detail

Define partial correlation coefficient r 12.3 between x 1 and x 2 eliminating from each the effect of x 3. Derive the expression for r 12.3 and comment on its usefulness in multivariate data analysis.

Explanation

Partial correlation coefficient defined as a association between any two variables out of a set of eliminating the other variable. Consider three variables X 1, X 2 and X 3. Now we want to find out the partial correlation coefficient r 12.3 between X 1 and X 2… (215 more words) …

Describe in Detail

The two regression lines between X and Y are 8X - 10Y + 66 = 0, 40X - 18Y = 214. The variance of X is 9. Find X, Y, σ Y and ρ.

Explanation

Given that

8X10Y+66=0

40X18Y214=0

We know that the mean value of the given series satisfies the regression line that is

8X10Y=66(1… (155 more words) …
