(a) Assume that it is possible to use the C statistic for model building. Use the C statistic,
to determine the best model using forward selection. Justify your selection at
each step.
[8 marks]
(b) Determine the best model overall based on the C statistic. Justify your answer.
[2 marks]
(c) Determine the best model overall based on R2 . Justify your answer.
[2 marks]
2. A regression model is estimated for the dependent variable, y, on x1 and x2 . The following
are all results from this estimation.

(a) By testing a suitable hypothesis, determine whether the model is a useful representation of the relationship between the dependent and the independent variables.
[3 marks]
(b) How useful would you say that the model is for predicting y?
[2 marks]
(c) Determine which, if any, of the assumptions of a Least Squares Regression are
[6 marks]
(d) Do the data appear to be affected by outliers? Justify your answer.
