Explain when using linear regression is most appropriate

Competencies
In this project, you will demonstrate your mastery of the following competencies:
Apply statistical techniques to address research problems
Perform regression analysis to address an authentic problem
Overview
The purpose of this project is to have you complete all of the steps of a real-world linear regression research project starting with developing a research question, then completing a comprehensive statistical analysis, and ending with summarizing your research conclusions.
Scenario
You have been hired by the D. M. Pan National Real Estate Company to develop a model to predict housing prices for homes sold in 2019. The CEO of D. M. Pan wants to use this information to help their real estate agents better determine the use of square footage as a benchmark for listing prices on homes. Your task is to provide a report predicting the housing prices based square footage. To complete this task, use the provided real estate data set for all U.S. home sales as well as national descriptive statistics and graphs provided.
Directions
Using the Project One Template located in the What to Submit section, generate a report including your tables and graphs to determine if the square footage of a house is a good indicator for what the listing price should be. Reference the National Statistics and Graphs document for national comparisons and the Real Estate Data Spreadsheet spreadsheet (both found in the Supporting Materials section) for your statistical analysis.
Note: Present your data in a clearly labeled table and using clearly labeled graphs.
Specifically, include the following in your report:
Introduction
Describe the report: Give a brief description of the purpose of your report.Define the question your report is trying to answer.
Explain when using linear regression is most appropriate.When using linear regression, what would you expect the scatterplot to look like?
Explain the difference between predictor (x) and response (y) variables in a linear regression to justify the selection of variables.
Data Collection
Sampling the data: Select a random sample of 50 houses. Describe how you obtained your sample data (provide Excel formulas as appropriate).
Identify your predictor and response variables.
Scatterplot: Create a scatterplot of your predictor and response variables to ensure they are appropriate for developing a linear model.
Data Analysis
Histogram: Create a histogram for each of the two variables.
Summary statistics: For your two variables, create a table to show the mean, median, and standard deviation.
Interpret the graphs and statistics:Based on your graphs and sample statistics, interpret the center, spread, shape, and any unusual characteristic (outliers, gaps, etc.) for house sales and square footage.
Compare and contrast the center, shape, spread, and any unusual characteristic for your sample of house sales with the national population (under Supporting Materials, see the National Summary Statistics and Graphs House Listing Price by Region PDF). Determine whether your sample is representative of national housing market sales.
Develop Your Regression Model
Scatterplot: Provide a scatterplot of the variables with a line of best fit and regression equation.
Based on your scatterplot, explain if a regression model is appropriate.
Discuss associations: Based on the scatterplot, discuss the association (direction, strength, form) in the context of your model.Identify any possible outliers or influential points and discuss their effect on the correlation.
Discuss keeping or removing outlier data points and what impact your decision would have on your model.
Calculate r: Calculate the correlation coefficient (r).Explain how the r value you calculated supports what you noticed in your scatterplot.
Determine the Line of Best Fit. Clearly define your variables. Find and interpret the regression equation. Assess the strength of the model.
Regression equation: Write the regression equation (i.e., line of best fit) and clearly define your variables.
Interpret regression equation: Interpret the slope and intercept in context. For example, answer the questions: what does the slope represent in this situation? What does the intercept represent? Revisit the Scenario above.
Strength of the equation: Provide and interpret R-squared.Determine the strength of the linear regression equation you developed.
Use regression equation to make predictions: Use your regression equation to predict how much you should list your home for based on the assumed square footage of your home at 1500 square feet.
Conclusions
Summarize findings: In one paragraph, summarize your findings in clear and concise plain language for the CEO to understand. Summarize your results.Did you see the results you expected, or was anything different from your expectations or experiences?
What changes could support different results, or help to solve a different problem?
Provide at least one question that would be interesting for follow-up research.
You can use the following tutorial that is specifically about this assignment. Make sure to check the assignment prompt for specific numbers used for national statistics. The videos may use different national statistics. You should use the national statistics posted with this assignment.

Why then do corporations spend so much money on advertising?

Prompt: How many times have you gone out and bought something specifically because of a TV commercial or magazine ad? Assuming that the number you’ve come up with is relatively small (especially in comparison to the sheer number of ads you confront every day), why then do corporations spend so much money on advertising? It doesn’t seem very cost-effective if, given the massive amount of advertising you’ve seen in your life, it has had relatively little effect on the commodities that you buy.
Exactly how does advertising work, then, if it doesn’t merely determine each time what you buy? If advertising doesn’t control you, then what does it do? Is this an argument for the persistence of the free and independent ‘self’ over the culturally determined ‘subject’: The self refuses to be subject to advertising’s ploys? Or does advertising subject you by telling you that you’re a self: “Listen to your guy; not some actor,” “Travel your own road,” “Obey your thirst,” “Just do it!” (The Theory Toolbox, 43).
Directions: Each week, you will be asked to participate in a short discussion based on the textbook readings. There will be a prompt, but it also serves as an opportunity to ask questions of your classmates for clarity. Attempting to translate ideas and explain to others is the highest level of comprehension! Minimum requirements: 1 post of 150 words and at least 2 responses to classmates (75 words min each). Your original post must include at least one citation (with page number) from the text(s) that week or a specific summary of the text with a specific page number. Your response must go beyond the agreement/praise of your peer, but instead further the discussion and analysis of the materials.

Refer to the book that is noted. (The THEORY Toolbox) some of the reading has been attached

Discuss how your beliefs, assumptions, and/or values may have influenced how you analyzed your advertisements

Describe how groups and/or cultures are presented in ALL your advertisements.You are not examining settings, logos, taglines, mood/tone, or any other element of the ads. OBJECTIVELY describe the groups and/or cultures. What characteristics can you objectively observe using your senses?
In this step, do not make interpretations or judgements about the groups and/or cultures.
Describe the representation of stereotypes in all your advertisements.Your analysis is still limited to groups and cultures, but now examine your ads for the presence of stereotypes. You should refer to specific details in the ads that communicate a stereotype. If you do not believe stereotypes are present, you must explain why and provide examples from your ads to support your point.
Discuss how your beliefs, assumptions, and/or values may have influenced how you analyzed your advertisements.As you’ve learned, your subjective perceptions of the social world are influenced by your attitudes and biases. Check in with yourself. Did you make any assumptions about the groups and/or cultures in your ads? Did past experiences influence how you interpreted the presence or absence of stereotypes?
