Learn About Multiple Regression With Dummy Variables in SPSS With Data From the Canadian Fuel Consumption Report (2015)

By: The Odum Institute Published: 2015 | Product: SAGE Research Methods Datasets

This dataset is designed for teaching multiple regression with dummy variables. The dataset is a subset of data derived from the 2015 Fuel Consumption Report from Natural Resources Canada, and the example presents an analysis of whether the size of an automobile’s engine and whether that engine has 4, 6, or 8 cylinders predicts the CO2 emissions of that automobile. The dataset file is accompanied by a teaching guide, a student guide, and a how-to guide for SPSS.

Prerequisites: Multiple Regression
Data Type: Numeric
Software Guide: SPSS
