# Correlation and

Regression

17-2

Regression
Regression: It is to explain the variation in one variable
(dependent variable), based on the variation in one or
more other variables (called independent variable)
Ex: To explain the variations in sales of a product based
on advertising expenses, number of sales people,
number of sales offices. Correlation & Regression are
generally performed together.
Correlation: to measure the degree of association
between two sets of quantitative data. (EX: How the
advertising expenditure correlated with other
promotional expenditure). Correlation is usually
followed by regression analysis.

## The product moment correlation, r, summarizes

the strength of association between two metric
(interval or ratio scaled) variables, say X and Y.

## It is an index used to determine whether a linear or

straight-line relationship exists between X and Y.

## As it was originally proposed by Karl Pearson, it is

also known as the Pearson correlation coefficient.
It is also referred to as simple correlation, bivariate
correlation, or merely the correlation coefficient.

## Product Moment Correlation

## r varies between -1.0 and +1.0.

The correlation coefficient between two
variables will be the same regardless of their
underlying units of measurement.

17-13

Partial Correlation
A partial correlation coefficient measures the
association between two variables after controlling for,
or adjusting for, the effects of one or more additional
variables.

rx y (rx z )(ry z )

## Partial correlations have an order associated with them.

The order indicates how many variables are being

regression equation

dependent or criterion variable, X = independent
1 of the line,
or predictor

0 variable,
slope of the line, and ei is the error term
associated with the i th observation.

## Coefficient of determination. The strength of

association is measured by the coefficient of
determination, r 2. It varies between 0 and 1 and
signifies the proportion of the total variation in Y
that is accounted for by the variation in X.

## Estimated or predicted value. The estimated

or predicted value of Yi is i = a + b x, where i is
the predicted value of YYi, and a and b are Y
estimators of
0 and 1 , respectively.

17-15

## Statistics Associated with Bivariate

Regression Analysis

## Scattergram. A scatter diagram, or

scattergram, is a plot of the values of two
variables for all the cases or observations.

## Standard error of estimate. This statistic,

SEE, is the standard deviation of the actual Y
Y predicted
values from the
values.

## Standard error. The standard deviation of

b, SEb, is called the standard error.

17-16

## Statistics Associated with Bivariate

Regression Analysis

## Standardized regression coefficient. Also

termed the beta coefficient or beta weight, this
is the slope obtained by the regression of Y on X
when the data are standardized.

## Sum of squared errors. The distances of all

the points from the regression line are squared
and added together to arrive at the sum of
squared errors, which is a measure of total2 error,
e j
.

## t statistic. A t statistic with n - 2 degrees of

freedom can be used to test the null hypothesis
that no linear relationship exists between X and
Y, or H0: 1 = 0, where
t= b

SEb

17-17

## Bi-variate Regression Analysis Test for

Significance
The statistical significance of the linear relationship
between X and Y may be tested by examining the
hypotheses:
H0 : 1 = 0
H1 : 1 0
A t statistic with n - 2 degrees of freedom can be
used, where
b

t=
SEb

## SEb denotes the standard deviation of b and is

called
the standard error.

17-18

Multiple Regression
The general form of the multiple regression
model
is as follows:

Y = 0 + 1 X1 + 2 X2 + 3 X3+ . . . + k Xk + e

## which is estimated by the following equation:

= a + b 1 X 1 + b 2 X 2 + b 3X 3 + . . . + b kX k

## As before, the coefficient a represents the

intercept,
but the b's are now the partial regression
coefficients.

17-19

Regression

## Adjusted R2. R2, coefficient of multiple

determination, is adjusted for the number of independent
variables and the sample size to account for the
diminishing returns. After the first few variables, the
additional independent variables do not make much
contribution. R2 = R2 (( 1- R2 ) / n- k - 1 )
Coefficient of multiple determination. The strength
of association in multiple regression is measured by the
square of the multiple correlation coefficient, R2, which is
also called the coefficient of multiple determination.
F test. The F test is used to test the null hypothesis that
the coefficient of multiple determination in the
population, R2. This is equivalent to testing the null
hypothesis. The test statistic has an F distribution with k
and (n - k - 1) degrees of freedom.

17-20

Stepwise Regression
The purpose of stepwise regression is to select, from a large
number of predictor variables, a small subset of variables
that account for most of the variation in the dependent or
criterion variable. In this procedure, the predictor variables
enter or are removed from the regression equation one at a
time.

## Forward inclusion. Initially, there are no predictor

variables in the regression equation. Predictor variables are
entered one at a time, only if they meet certain criteria
specified in terms of F ratio. The order in which the variables
are included is based on the contribution to the explained
variance.

## Backward elimination. Initially, all the predictor variables

are included in the regression equation. Predictors are then
removed one at a time based on the F ratio for removal.

17-21

Multicollinearity

## Multicollinearity arises when intercorrelations

among the predictors are very high.
Multicollinearity can result in several problems,
including:
The partial regression coefficients may not be
estimated precisely. The standard errors are likely
to be high.
The magnitudes as well as the signs of the partial
regression coefficients may change from sample
to sample.
It becomes difficult to assess the relative
importance of the independent variables in
explaining the variation in the dependent variable.
Predictor variables may be incorrectly included or
removed in stepwise regression.
