Calculate the Regression for Abortion Restrictions and Church Attendance

Question

This question requires you to download and analyze the dataset “abortion-laws.csv”. Consult the associated abortion-codebook.csv" for variable definitions.

(a) Estimate a regression model with the total number of abortion restrictions as the dependent variable, and church attendance as the covariate. Report the regression line and R2 and interpret the results.

(b) Estimate a regression model with the total number of abortion restrictions as the dependent variable, and church attendance, percent nonwhite residents, percent of residents that are females under age 18, percent of residents below the poverty line, and Democratic vote share in 2004 as covariates. Report the regression line and R2 and interpret the results.

(c) Estimate a regression model with the same covariates as above, but use “physician 1” as a dependent variable (the state requires abortions to be performed by a physician). Report the regression line and R2 and interpret the results. Comment in particular on the effect of the percent of nonwhite residents on the dependent variable. Note. Since the dependent variable is binary, effects of explanatory variables should be stated in terms of the probability that Y = 1, i.e., the probability that a state does require abortions to be performed by a physician.

Note: Please find the Excel sheets attached along with this document.

    Hello Allison,I love the 2nd image that you did! I also, had never heard of SumoPaint, is something that I will have to exolpre a bit! I understand completely the 52 (or so) youtube videos that you probably watched. Sometimes they have what you want, sometimes they don't! However, it is always satisfying when you are able to produce something that you have taught yourself. Great job!Debra 0 likes
