# Example of Using SPSS to Generate a Simple Regression Analysis

## Given a desire of a Retail Chain management team to develop a strategy to

forecasting annual sales, the following data from a random sample of existing stores has
been gathered:

## STORE SQUARE FOOTAGE ANNUAL SALES (\$)

1 1726.00 3681.00
2 1642.00 3895.00
3 2816.00 6653.00
4 5555.00 9543.00
5 1292.00 3418.00
6 2208.00 5563.00
7 1313.00 3660.00
8 1102.00 2694.00
9 3151.00 5468.00
10 1516.00 2898.00
11 5161.00 10674.00
12 4567.00 7585.00
13 5841.00 11760.00
14 3008.00 4085.00

We can enter the data into SPSSPc by typing it directly into the data editor, or by cutting
and pasting:
Next, by clicking on ‘Variable View’, we can apply variable and value labels where
appropriate:

Assuming, for now, that if a relationship exists between the two variables, it is linear in
nature, we can generate a simple Scatterplot (or Scatter Diagram) for the data. This is
accomplished with the command sequence:
Which yields the following (editable) scatterplot:

So then Yi = 901.247 + 1.686X (noting that no direct interpretation of the Y
intercept at 0 Square Footage is possible, so
that the intercept represents the portion of
the annual sales varying due to factors other
than store size)

and where
SST = SSR (regression sum of squares) + SSE (error sum of squares)

and Y-Bar

and Y-Bar

## SSE = sum of the squared differences between each observed value of Y

and each predicted value for Y

## Standard Error of the Estimate = SYX = SQRT { SSE / n - 2} = 936.85

Testing the General Assumptions of Regression and Residual Analysis

## 1. Normality of Error - similar to the t-test and ANOVA, regression is robust to

departure from the normality of errors around the regression line. This assumption is
often tested by simply plotting the Standardized Residuals (each residual divided by
its standard error) on a histogram with a superimposed normal distribution, or on a
normalo probability plot. SPSS allows us to perform both functions automatically
(while, incidentally, saving the residual values in the original data file if this option is
toggled):

## Observed Cum Prob

Regression Standardized Residual

Of course, the assessment of normality by visually scanning the data leaves some
statisticians unsettled; so I usually add an appropriate test of normality conducted on the
data:

## Variable n A-D p-value

Stand._Resid. 14 0.348 0.503
2. Homoscedasticity - the assumption that the variability of data around the regression
line be constant for all values of X. In other words, error must be independent of
X. Generally, this assumption may be tested by plotting the X values against the
raw residuals for Y. In SPSS, this must be done by plotting a Scatterplot from the
saved variables:

Results in data automatically added to the data file:
Then, simply produce the requisite scatterplot as before:

2000

1000

0
Unstandardized Residual

-1000

-2000
1000 2000 3000 4000 5000 6000

## Notice how there is no 'fanning' pattern to the data, implying homoscedasticity.

Other authors, including those who wrote the SPSS routine, choose to plot the X values
against the Studentized Residuals (Standardized Residuals Adjusted for their distance
from the average X value) rather than the Unstandardized (raw) Residuals. SPSS will
generate this plot automatically (select this under the ‘Plots’ panel):

## Scatterplot of Studentized Residuals

## Square Footage of Store

Note the equivalence of results between the two plots. Statistically speaking, the X values
and Residuals may be inferred to be 0.00. We can infer this using the correlation utility in
SPSSPc, which tests the null hypothesis that the Pearson rho for the population is equal to
0.00:

Sig. (2-tailed) .959 .000 .
N 14 14 14
**. Correlation is significant at the 0.01 level (2-tailed).

It should be noted that the distribution of the data also suggest that an assumption of
linearity is also reasonable at this point.

## 3) Independence of the Errors - assumes that no autocorrelation is present. Generally,

evaluated by plotting the residuals in the order or sequence in which the original
data were collected. This approach, when meaningful, uses the Durbin-Watson
Statistic and associated Tables of Critical values. SPSS can generate this value
when requested as part of the Model Summary:

Inferences About the Model and Interval Estimates

## We can determine the presence of a significant relationship between X and Y by testing to

determine whether the observed slope is significantly greater than 0, the hypothesized
slope of the regression line if no relationship existed. This can be done with a t-test,
which divides the observed slope by the standard error of the slope (supplied by SPSS):

## or with an ANOVA model, which provides identical results:

noting that t2, as expected, equals F; and the p-values are therefore equal. Note that SPSS
also provides the confidence interval associated with the slope.

Finally, SPSS allows you to calculate and store both Confidence and Prediction Limits
for the observed data. After you generate the scatterplot, left double-click on the chart;
