Stat 512-2 Solutions to Homework #4 Dr. Simonsen Due Wednesday, September 21, 2005. 1.Consider the following SAS output giving 5 confidence intervals for the mean of Y. If you wanted to guarantee that the jointcoverage of the five confidence intervals was at least 95%, what level would you use when forming each interval, using the Bonferroni correction? Compute this adjusted confidence interval for X = 5. (Note that some observations have been omitted from the output.)

Thus we would construct 99% confidence intervals for each value of X. [Note to grader: They can either say 99% confidence level or α= 0.01 in answer to “what level”.] From the SAS output we see that dfE= n – 2 = 16, and { }ˆˆ1.0878,71.3691hhsYY==when Xh= 5. To obtain the 99% CI we use tc= t(1-α/2g, n-2) = t(0.995, 16) = 2.921. Thus the 99% CI for the mean when X = 5 is 71.3691 ±2.921×1.0878 = 71.3691 ±3.1775 = [68.1916, 74.5466]2.Based on the following small data set, construct the design matrix, X, its transpose X’, and the matrices X’X, (X’X)-1, X’Y, and b= (X’X)-1X’Y.

Statistics 512: Solution to Homework#6 For the following 3 problems use the computer science data that we have been dis-cussing in class. You can get a copy of the data set csdata.dat from the class website. The variables are: id , a numerical identiﬁer for each student; GPA , the grade point average after three semesters; HSM ; HSS ; HSE ; SATM ; SATV , which were all explained in class; and GENDER , coded as 1 for men and 2 for women. 1. In a data step, create a new variable GENDERW that has values 1 for women and 0 for men (use arithmetic on the original variable GENDER ). Run a regression to predict GPA using the explanatory variables HSM , HSS , HSE , SATM , SATV , and GENDERW . (Do not include any interaction terms.) Solution: The required SAS output is given below: Parameter Estimates Parameter Standard Variable DF Estimate Error t Value Pr > |t| Intercept 1 0.31101 0.40447 0.77 0.4428 genderw 1 0.03237 0.11148 0.29 0.7718 hsm 1 0.14423 0.03979 3.62 0.0004 hss 1 0.03827 0.03874 0.99 0.3244 hse 1 0.05103 0.04228 1.21 0.2287 satm 1 0.00100 0.00071725 1.40 0.1633 satv 1-0.00041086 0.00059323-0.69 0.4893 (a) Give the equation of the ﬁtted regression line using all six explanatory variables. Solution: The estimated regression equation is gpa = 0 . 31101 + 0 . 003237 genderw + 0 . 11423 hsm + 0 . 03827 hss +0 . 05103 hse + 0 . 001 satm-0. 00041086 satv (b) Give the ﬁtted regression line for women (use part a).
