Please indicate whether the following statements are True, False, or Undetermined.
Statement |
True |
False |
Undetermined |
Two variables that are highly correlated are causally related. |
|||
Observed points closest to the regression line are given more weight than points far away (i.e., outliers). |
|||
The standard deviation is only useful as a measure of dispersion for normally distributed variables. |
|||
Two variables that have no observed correlation cannot be causally related. |
|||
When a survey sample has a potential bias (e.g., an opt-in sample hosted on a politically slanted website) that bias does not get smaller as the sample size increases. |
|||
A regression model with a R-square value closer to zero than 1 means the model explains a majority of the variance in the dependent variable |
