1. Y vs X
2. ln Y vs ln X
3. ln Y vs X
4. Y vs ln X.
b. Estimate a linear model for each of the pairs of variables in part a. Present the estimation results in the usual format, interpret the estimated slope coefficients and comment on the fitness of each of the models.
c. For each model, find the elasticity of Y with respect to X. [For some of these models, the elasticity is to be computed at mean values of Y and X.]
d. Based on all four regression results, which model would you choose. Justify your answer with comparisons of the fitness of the model using at least four different measures.
The question belongs to Statistics and it discusses about calculation of regression and plotting scatter plot and interpreting the results for the given data.
