The first two categories I will create are from the proportion white variable, which describes from zero to one the proportion … More Comparing Groups: Measuring Mixed Use Zoning Through Race and Neighborhood Type

The hypothesis is to examine if the temperature and the humidity can affect the level of CO. The CO is generated by fuel based combustion for … More Multi linear Regression Analysis among Local Sense Lab data set
