You can preview and download the dataset from this tab. The dataset is available in multiple file formats, compatible with most common software packages. You can also view and download the Codebook, which provides information on the structure, contents, and layout of the dataset.
This dataset is designed for teaching the test for heteroscedasticity following a linear regression analysis. The dataset is a subset of data derived from the 2015 Fuel Consumption Report from Natural Resources Canada. The example estimates a simple regression model of whether the size of an automobile’s engine predicts the highway fuel consumption of that automobile. After performing the regression, it shows how to examine the results for evidence of heteroscedasticity. The dataset file is accompanied by a teaching guide, a student guide, and a how-to guide for SPSS.
In this tab you will find guides on using this dataset. The Teaching Guide is designed for faculty who are teaching research methods and statistics, with suggestions on how to use the dataset in lab exercises, in homework assignments and as exam questions. The Student Guide introduces the method for students, and can be used in teaching to provide students with an introductory overview of the method or test. The How-to Guide shows how to perform the technique or test using data analysis software.
