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 acomprehensive 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 tohelp 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 squarefootage. To complete this task, use the provided real estate data set for all U.S. home sales as well as national descriiptive 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 forwhat the listing price should be. Reference the National Statistics and Graphs document for national comparisons and the

What changes could support different results, or help to solve a different problem?
c.
Provide at least one question that would be interesting for follow-up research.
