2. A Probabilistic Model
Simple Linear Regression
- Special Case of Linear Regression
- One Response Variable to One Explanatory Variable
General Setting
- We Denote Explanatory Variable as Xi’s and
Response Variable as Yi’s
- N Pairs of Observations {xi, yi}, i = 1 to n

3. Fitting the Simple Linear Regression Model
Therefore, the equation of fitted line is:
yˆ = 360.64 - 7.281x
Not enough!
3. Fitting the Simple Linear Regression Model
Check the goodness of fit of LS line
We define:
SST = SSR + SSE

Prove:

r =

53,418.73

r = - 0.953 = -0.976
where the sign of r follows from the sign of bˆ1 since 95.3% of
the variation in tread wear is accounted for by linear regression
on mileage, the relationship between the two is strongly linear
with a negative slope.
3. Fitting the Simple Linear Regression Model

6.1 Correlation Analysis
Why we need this?
Regression analysis is used to model the
relationship between two variables.
But when there is no such distinction and
both variables are random, correlation
analysis is used to study the strength of the
relationship.

So, if (X,Y) have a bivariate normal distribution, then the regression
model is true

Reject H0 iff

t0  tn2, / 2
Example
A researcher wants to determine if two test
instruments give similar results. The two test
instruments are administered to a sample of 15
students. The correlation coefficient between the
two sets of scores is found to be 0.7. Is this
correlation statistically significant at the .01 level?
H0 : ρ=0 ,
t0 
Ha : ρ≠0

3.534 = t0 > t13, .005 = 3.012
So, we reject H0

We can say

6.3 Approximate test when ρ≠0
Because that the exact distribution of R is
not very useful for making inference on ρ,
R.A Fisher showed that we can do the
following linear transformation, to let it be
approximate normal distribution.
That is,

8. Application
• Linear regression is widely used to
describe possible relationships between
variables. It ranks as one of the most
important tools in these disciplines.

Finance
Economics
Ecology/environmental science
8. Application
• Prediction, forecasting or deduction
 Linear regression can be used to fit a
predictive model to an observed data set
of Y and X values. After developing such a
model, if an additional value of X is then given
without its accompanying value of Y, the fitted
model can be used to make a prediction of the
value of Y.
8. Application
• Quantifying the strength of relationship
 Given a variable y and a number of
variables X1, ..., Xp that may be related to Y,
linear regression analysis can be applied to
assess which Xj may have no relationship
with Y at all, and to identify which subsets of
the Xj contain redundant information about Y.
8. Application
Example 1. Trend line
A trend line represents
a trend, the long-term
movement in time
series data after other
components have
been accounted
for. Trend lines are
sometimes used in
show changes in data
over time.

Example 2. Clinical drug trials
Regression analysis is
widely utilized in
healthcare. The graph
shows an example in which
we investigate the
relationship between
protein concentration and
absorbance employing
linear regression analysis.
