Ozone The Environmental Protection Agency is examin- ing the relationship between the ozone level (in parts per million) and the population (in millions) of U.S. cities.
Part of the regression analysis is shown.
Dependent variable is: Ozone
R-squared =84.4%
s=5.454 with 162=14 df
Variable Coefficient SE(Coeff)
Intercept 18.892 2.395
Pop 6.650 1.910
a) We suspect that the greater the population of a city, the higher its ozone level. Is the relationship significant? Assuming the conditions for inference are satisfied, test an appropriate hypothesis and state your conclu- sion in context.
b) Do you think that the population of a city is a useful predictor of ozone level? Use the values of both R2 and s in your explanation.

a) The null and alternative hypotheses are,
H0:β1=0
That is, there is no linear relationship between population and ozone level.
H1:β10
That is, there is a linear relationship between population and ozone level.
Degrees of freedom:
The degrees of the freedom is,
n2=162=14
The formula for finding the test statistic is,
t=b1β1SE(b1)
Subsitute 6.650 for b1, for beta1 and 1.910 for SE(b1).
t=b1β1SE(b1)
6.65001.910
=3.48
Thus, the test statistic is 3.48.
Computation of P-value:
The P-value of t-distribution at 14 degrees of freedom can be obtained using the excel formula =T.DIST.2T(3.48,14)
. Thus, the P-value is 0.0037.
It means that there is association in the data is unlikely to occur by chance. Thus, we reject the null hypothesis.
Hence, there is sufficient evidence that there is a positive linear relationship between ozone level and population. Therefore the conclusion is, cities with larger populations tend to have higher ozone levels,
b) From output, it can be observed the R scored is 84.4% and s value is 5.454. Therefore, the population explains about 84% of the variability in ozone level and s is over 5 parts per million. Thus, the population is a good predictor of ozone level.
Yes, the population of a city is a useful predictor of ozone level.

True/False
True or False? A clinical trial is conducted to compare an experimental medication to placebo to reduce the symptoms of asthma. One hundred participants are enrolled in the study and randomized to receive either the experimental medication or placebo. The primary outcome is self-reported reduction of symptoms. Among 50 participants who receive the experimental medication, 30 report a reduction of symptoms as compared to 15 participants of 50 assigned to the placebo. The 95% CI for the relative risk of participants reporting a reduction of symptoms between the experimental and placebo groups is between 1.529 and 8.012.
