# Basic Minitab Help - It's about Linear Regression

P

#### patoconalzheimer

Hey! I'm doing a homework assignment for beginning to use minitab and I'm confused with a problem. It's about linear regression. We are given this information: Lot size, Income, Owner (where the values in this column are binary, 0 for nonowner)

The question says: "Among nonowners, what is the percentage of households classified correctly?" So by this I assume the question asks which households that are nonowners were predicted to be nonowners.

Well I don't even know what data to select as what when doing the regression.

Any help is appreciated! Thanks!

It is unclear which variables are independent variables (IV) and which is the dependent variable (DV). I would guess that lot size and income are continuous IV and owner is a binary DV. Assuming that this is correct, this would not be linear regression, but binary logistic regression.

If owner is an independent variable, what is the DV?
