## 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 (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

1. Describe the report: Give a brief description of the purpose of your report.
2. Explain when using linear regression is most appropriate.
1. When using linear regression, what would you expect the scatterplot to look like?
3. Explain the difference between response and predictor variables in a linear regression to justify the selection of variables.

Data Collection

1. Sampling the data: Select a random sample of 50 houses.
1. Identify your response and predictor variables.
2. Scatterplot: Create a scatterplot of your response and predictor variables to ensure they are appropriate for developing a linear model.

Data Analysis

1. Histogram: For your two variables, create histograms.
2. Summary statistics: For your two variables, create a table to show the mean, median, and standard deviation.
3. Interpret the graphs and statistics:
1. Based on your graphs and sample statistics, interpret the center, spread, shape, and any unusual characteristic (outliers, gaps, etc.) for the two variables.
2. Compare and contrast the shape, center, spread, and any unusual characteristic for your sample of house sales with the national population. Is your sample representative of national housing market sales?

1. Scatterplot: Provide a graph of the scatterplot of the data with a line of best fit.
1. Explain if a regression model is appropriate to develop based on your scatterplot.
2. Discuss associations: Based on the scatterplot, discuss the association (direction, strength, form) in the context of your model.
1. Identify any possible outliers or influential points and discuss their effect on the correlation.
2. Discuss keeping or removing outlier data points and what impact your decision would have on your model.
3. Find r: Find the correlation coefficient (r).
1. 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.

1. Regression equation: Write the regression equation (i.e., line of best fit) and clearly define your variables.
2. Interpret regression equation: Interpret the slope and intercept in context.
3. Strength of the equation: Provide and interpret R-squared.
1. Determine the strength of the linear regression equation you developed.
4. Use regression equation to make predictions: Use your regression equation to predict how much you should list your home for based on the square footage of your home.

Conclusions

1. Summarize findings: In one paragraph, summarize your findings in clear and concise plain language for the CEO to understand. Summarize your results.
1. Did you see the results you expected, or was anything different from your expectations or experiences?
1. What changes could support different results, or help to solve a different problem?
2. Provide at least one question that would be interesting for follow-up research.

## What to Submit

To complete this project, you must submit the following:

Project One Template: Use this template to structure your report, and submit the finished version as a Word document.

## Cybersecurity 14 | Computer Science homework help

Create a one-page document of a personal disaster recovery procedure for your home computer. Be sure to include what needs to be protected and why. Also include information about where your data backups are stored and how they can be retrieved. Does your DRP show that what you are doing to protect your assets is sufficient? Should any changes be made?

Include in your plan, several good online backup services can help make data backup easy for the user. Use a search engine to search for online backup service reviews, and select three different services. Research these services and note their features. Create a table that lists each service and compare their features. Be sure to also include costs. Which would you recommend? Why?

Also consider, although not as full-featured as online backup services, several free synchronization storage tools allow users to back up data by synchronization: when you place a file in a designated folder, it is automatically stored to the remote site. Several of these sites offer free storage from 5 GB to unlimited space. Use a search engine to search for free cloud synch storage, and select three different services. Research these services and note their features. Create a table that lists each product and compare their features. Be sure to include storage space limits. How do they compare to online backup services? Which would you recommend? Why?

Write at least a one-page document of a DRP, include the use of online backup services (paid/free) and the table that list and compare the backup services.

## Discussion: Remaining Compassionate and Professional

As a social worker, you interact with individuals who are at various stages of change in their lives. This may become frustrating for you when clients are struggling to achieve their goals. Thus, it is important for you to develop strategies to process your experiences so that you can maintain your compassion and professionalism. As you consider the strategies you have developed to address these issues, also consider how you might help other social workers to develop such strategies. Perhaps you consulted with your supervisors when you had difficulty processing your emotions in particular situations. As you consider assuming a supervisory role, how might you apply your learning from those experiences to helping those whom you supervise?

For this Discussion, review the Levy case study in this week’s video. Consider how you, as a social worker, might address the challenge of remaining engaged with a client while not letting your emotions affect the interaction. Also, consider how you, as a supervisor, might discuss this topic with a social worker whom you supervise.

##### By Day 3

Post a strategy that you, as the social work supervisor in the Levy case study video, might use to debrief the social worker after the session described in the video.

Support your post with specific references to the resources. Be sure to provide full APA citations for your references.

Developing a Culture of Evidence-Based Practice

As the evidence-based practice skills grow, you may be called upon to share your expertise with others. Evidence-based practice is often conducted with unique outcomes in mind. The evidence-based practice practitioners who share their results can both add to the general body of knowledge and serve as an advocate for the application of Evidence-based practice. This discussion explores the strategies for disseminating EBP within my organization, community, or industry. To disseminate EBP within my organization, the two strategies that I would use are journal clubs and evidence based grand rounds within my clinic. These two strategies provide a smaller setting that will for increased probing and dialogue and provide for an opportunity for increased collaborative connections. This is a way to improve EBP discussions, build relationships, and the EBP in discussion even better (Gallagher-Ford et al., 2011).

To overcome these barriers, one would need the support of both the organization’s management and nurse leaders. This support is important in informing the staff about the importance of the EBP. In addition, specific research and research evidence can help support the EBP to capture the attention of the staff and make them adopt the EBP. Staff and organizational education are also important in supporting the EBP in place and ensuring its success (Melnyk & Fineout-Overholt, 2018).
