## Class Activity on Robbery Rates - see robbery.dat, robbery.csv, and robbery.R

• A criminologist studying the relationship between population density and robbery rate in medium-sized U.S. cities collected the data for a random sample of 16 cities. The data for X = population density of the city (number of people per unit area) and Y = the robbery rate last year (number of robberies per 100,000 people) can be found in robbery.dat.
• Obtain the estimated regression line. Plot the estimated regression line and the data. Does the simple linear regression model appear to provide a good fit?
• Obtain point estimates of the following:
• the difference in the mean robbery rate in cities that differ by one unit in population density
• the mean robbery rate last year in cities with population density X = 60
• the random error term for the 10th observation
• the variance of the error terms
