Doing a Stats Project, Could Use Some Help


#1

If any of you have a minute and can help me out, I’m just looking for two points of data: your age and the current mileage on your primary vehicle.

Just need some numbers to crunch to see if there’s any correlation. Would be particularly helpful to get people under 25 and over 35, as the bulk of my data so far is within that age range.

Thanks!

43 50,800


#3

43, 148,760

Also, 7.5" if you need another data point.

Clearly you are a bot trying to mine personal informations for commercial purposes.


#5
  1. 65000 miles.
    Last month~ 43 and 196000 miles

Ask anybody who has been on the boards a few years. Not a bot, promise.

Worst. Bot. Ever.

Outliers FTW!

Interesting project, 0% chance you can pull any kind of meaningful correlation between the two, but whatevs…

The point of the project isn’t to pull a correlation, it’s to show we know how to go about showing there is or isn’t a correlation using the methods we’ve learned.

…and herein lies one of the problems with surveys

Not what you said in your OP bud! I’m starting to think something nefarious is afoot…

Cool, I guess I misread your OP.

LOL okay, please, come up with a scenario where knowing random peoples ages and car mileages somehow relates to some nefarious intent.

The project is “pick two variables and crunch the numbers to check for correlation”, not “try to prove a correlation between two variables”. My point was that the chance of there being a correlation doesn’t really matter, only that I can explain it using the correct methods.

Well “CappedAndPlanIt” you obviously have designed this analysis as a means to justify additional carbon taxes on older higher mileage drivers… Shame on you Mr. Gore.

DEFLECTION!! That’s exactly what someone with a nefarious plot WOULD say!

28 / 175k

If you wanted to go for a correlation you might ask for income and car miles, might be something to that. Although I’m not sure people would be honest about their income.
