### Simple linear regression with Python

The Coursera course I am taking this week is dedicated to the Regression Modeling in Practice, Week2 -Basics of Linear Regression. I decided to use The GapMinder dataset and run linear regression models to assess the association between urbanicity and breast cancers rate. Urbanicity is 2008 urban population (% of total). Urban population refers to people living … More Simple linear regression with Python

### A look at GapMinder data

Data source: GapMinder data are comprised of global development indicators curated by the Gapminder Foundation. The foundation is a non-profit venture registered in Stockholm, Sweden, aiming at promoting sustainable global development and achievement of the United Nations Millennium Development Goals by increased use and understanding of statistics and other information about social, economic and environmental … More A look at GapMinder data

### Exploring Statistical Interactions with Python

In the previous post, I analyzed the correlation between 3 development indicators (income per person, life expectancy, policy score, and urban rate) and HIV rate. I found that there was a linear negative association between urban rate and HIV rate (Correlation coefficient = -0.276, p-value = 0.001). This time, I am interested in assessing the … More Exploring Statistical Interactions with Python

### Pearson Correlation with Python

This blog post is dedicated to what I learnt form the Coursera course on Data Analysis Tools: Pearson Correlation, provided by the Wesleyan University. The course addresses correlation analysis using a Python script. To try it by myself, I decided to assess the relationship between 3 development indicators (income per person, life expectancy, policy score, … More Pearson Correlation with Python

### Chi Square Test with Python

This time, I would like to run a Chi-square (χ2) test by coding with Python in Anaconda’s Scientific PYthon Development EnviRonment (Spyder). I am interested in assessing the association between income per person (2010 Gross Domestic Product per capita in constant 2000 US\$) and life expectancy (2011 life expectancy at birth (years). The average number … More Chi Square Test with Python

### Running ANOVA with Python

This time, I learnt how to perform an analysis of variance (ANOVA) with Python. To try it by myself, I decide to check whether 1) there is an association between CO2 emissions and urban rate, and 2) there is an association between income per person and policy score. I recoded the urban rate into a … More Running ANOVA with Python
