# 1. Scatter Plots in R

#———————————————————————————

#Previously we’ve looked at various plots in R.

#Today we are going to learn how to do a scatter plot in R.

#^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^#

# Scatter Plot: plot(x=data$variable, y=data$variable)

#^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^#

#Let’s start by reading in the lab8a.txt file.

a=read.table(‘lab8a.txt’, header=T)

a #The data “a” contains variables named X and Y variables

#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#

#Exercise 1-1:

# A) Create a scatter plot for the variables in a.

# Put X on the x-axis and Y on the y-axis

# B) What does the scatter plot look like? Is it linear?

#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#

#A)

plot(y=a$Y, x=a$X)

#B)

#Looks kinda linear

#———————————————————————————

# 2. Linear Regression in R

#———————————————————————————

#R has a function that computes the regression

#of Y on X (Best fit line).

#Linear Regression is just the function of y=Mx + b,

#there is a slope and intercept.

#In Linear Regression, we re-write this function as y=?x + a

#??????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????#

#Thought Question 1: In the equation of y=?x + a,

#which is the slope and which is the intercept term.

#??????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????#

#^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^#

# Linear Regression: lm(data$variable ~ data$variable)

# lm(outcome/dependent variable ~ predictor/independent variable/determinant)

#^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^#

#If we wanted to find the best fit line for our data

#we could use the linear regression function:

lm(a$Y~a$X)

#How can we interpret the values we get?

#Intercept = -0.3436 #When x is zero,

#the mean value of y is -0.3436

#Slope = 1.1153

#For a 1 unit increase in x, y increases by 1.1153 points

#??????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????#

#Thought Question 2: How would we interpret the slope if the

#coefficent had been negative? eg. -1.1153

#??????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????#

#———————————————————————————

# 3. Outliers in Regression

#———————————————————————————

#One of the concerns we should have about the data in the

# previous section is that there are outliers in the

#original data. Let’s trim the outliers to see

#how this affects our regression lines.

#I’ll re-plot the data

plot(y=a$Y, x=a$X)

#I’m also going to use a new command to identify

#the rows where outliers occur.

#^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^#

# Give Row info for plots: identify(data)

#^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^#

identify(a)

#On the plot, we can click on the outliers to figure out

#what row the outliers occur on

#Then they are row 20 and 8

#Now, we can close the plot we created

#and let’s go back and plot our data,

#but now by adding the regression line

#To add the regression line,

#I’ll store the results of the linear regression

#into an object called m1 (model1)

m1=lm(a$Y~a$X)

#We can then re-draw the plot

plot(y=a$Y, x=a$X)

#And use the abline() function to add the regression line

abline(m1)

# Now, in order to see the effects of the outliers

# I might like to see the regression lines from data

#where the outliers have been removed.

#I’ll create some other versions of the dataset “a”

#that does just that.

a8=a[-8,] #Does not contain row 8

a20=a[-20,] #Does not contain row 20

a8_20=a[c(-8,-20),] #Does not contain row 8 and 20

#I can then run the regressions on these limited datasets.

m2=lm(a8$Y~a8$X)

m3=lm(a20$Y~a20$X)

m4=lm(a8_20$Y~a8_20$X)

#And then plot all the regression lines on the plot.

plot(y=a$Y, x=a$X)

abline(m1, col=”black”)

abline(m2, col=”red”)

abline(m3, col=”green”)

abline(m4, col=”blue”)

#———————————————————————————

# 4. Hypothesis testing in Regression

#———————————————————————————

#In regression, or goal in general is to find out

#if two variables are related to each other

#This is indicated to us when two variables

#do not have a slope of 0.

#Then, in regression, our Null and Alternative Hypotheses are:

# H0: Beta_1 = 0

# HA: Beta_1 different from 0

#We can test the null hypothesis here by using

#the “summary()” command on our MODELS

#^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^#

# summary of results: summary(model)

#^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^#

#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#

#Example: If I wanted to know if our original model

#without removing outliers had slope of 0

#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#

summary(m1)

#We then compare the p-value to our alpha level

#A) If pval < alpha, then Reject the Null Hypothesis

#B) If pval > alpha, then Fail to Reject the Null Hypothesis

#I fail to reject the null hypothesis of Beta_1 = 0

#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#

#Exercise 4-1:

# Test the null hypothesis for the slopes in Models 2, 3, and 4.

# Do you reject or fail to reject for each model?

#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#

#A) If pval < alpha, then Reject the Null Hypothesis

#B) If pval > alpha, then Fail to Reject the Null Hypothesis

summary(m2) #Reject H0 p-value: 0.0141 compare to alpha=.05

summary(m3) #Fail to reject H0

summary(m4) #Reject H0

#———————————————————————————

# 5. Correlation and R-squared in R

#———————————————————————————

#We just learned how to do Linear regression in R

#using the lm() function.

#Linear regression told us how a 1 unit increase in X

#affects Y.

#Correlation coefficents (rho) are another way of

#representing how strong a linear relationship is.

#They range from -1 to 1, with values further away

#from zero representing a stronger association.

#Positive values indicate that as X increases,

#Y increases

#Negative values indicate that as X increases,

#Y decreases

#Below is the function for a correlation between

#two variables:

#^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^#

# Correlation: cor(data$variable1, data$variable2)

#^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^#

#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#

#Exercise 5-1:

# Use the correlation function to find the correlation

#between X and Y in our datset “a”

#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#

cor(a$X, a$Y)

#Because the correlation is positive we know that

# as X increases, Y increases.

#We also knew this before when we did linear regression

#and looked at the plots.

#The correlation coefficent is related to something

#from linear regression called R-squared.

#R-squared represents the proportion of variability

#in the outcome (Y) explained by the predictor (X).

#IF we think of our correlation coefficent as R,

#then R-squared will be:

cor(a$X, a$Y)^2

#This means that ~14.6% of the variability in Y

# is explained by the scores in X.

#Which is the same value reported in the linear regression

summary(m1)

# 6. Outliers Revisited

#———————————————————————————

#For this part, we will need the Rallfun-v23.txt source file

#Import the data from lab8b.txt into R in table form; save as object called b.

b=read.table(‘lab8b.txt’,header=TRUE)

b #Contains 26 values, X variable and Y variable

#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#

#Exercise 6-1:

# A) Create a scatter plot (X on x-axis, Y on y-axis)

# B) Based on the scatter should the correlation

# be positive or negative?

#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#

#A)

#B)

# Previously we visually identified outliers

# and used the identify() command to find their

# row numbers so we could eliminate them

# Instead, let’s use a more systematic approach

#using an outlier removal technique called

#the Mad-Median

#^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^#

# Identify Outliers using Mad-Median: out(data$variable)

#^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^#

# For example, I can identify the outliers in X by doing the following.

out(b$X)

# n.out tells me how many outliers their are

# out.id tells me the rows they occur on.

#I could then create a new version of b that does not contain outliers in X

brmX=b[c(-19,-25), ]

#And then find the correaltion for this version

cor(brmX$Y, brmX$X)

#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#

#Exercise 6-2:

# A) Create dataset brmY that is a new version of b but with outliers in Y removed (using Mad-Median)

# B) Create dataset brmXY that is a new version of b but with outliers in X OR Y removed (using Mad-Median).

# C) What is the correaltion coefficeint between X and Y for part A

# D) What is the correaltion coefficeint between X and Y for part B

#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#*#

#A)

out(b$Y)

brmY=b[c(-22,-26), ]

#B)

brmXY=b[c(-22,-26,-19,-25),]

#C)

cor(brmY$Y, brmY$X)

#D)

cor(brmXY$Y, brmXY$X)

#Now, if we look at all these correlation values

#removing these various outliers, what do we notice?

cor(b$Y, b$X)

cor(brmX$Y, brmX$X)

cor(brmY$Y, brmY$X)

cor(brmXY$Y, brmXY$X)

#And now what does our plot look like if we removed outliers in X or Y

plot(y=b$Y, x=b$X)

points(y=brmXY$Y, x=brmXY$X,col=”red”)

#Are there still outliers?

#??????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????#

#Thought Question 3: What does this tell us about

#our outlier detection technique?

#??????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????#
