A cancer specialist from the Los Angeles County General Hospital (LACGH) rated patient optimism in 20 to 40 year old patients with incurable cancer in 1970. In 1990, theresearcher examined hospital records to gather the following:
• SES (1-7)
• Age in 1970
• Optimism in 1970 (1-100)
• Longevity (years lived after the 1970 diagnosis)
Years Lived after Diagnosis is the Dependent Variable.
Use the others (age, optimism, and SES) as the independent variables.
You will also be analyzing multicollinearity in the model and interpreting the model. Be sure to describe which of the model building methods you use.
