Using Statistics: Species of Tortoise on the Galapagos Islands

I'm continuing my R exercises and creating an initial estimation. I am looking at creating a linear model, calculating B hat, Gauss-Markov Theorem, and goodness of fit.


Data Set: Species of Tortoise on the Galapagos Islands

In this dataset, I am looking at species of tortoise on the Galapagos Islands. For this exercise, I am estimate a linear model formed by the dataset. The variables are as follows:

  • Species - the number of species of tortoise found on the island
  • Endemics - the number of endemic species
  • Area - the area of the island (km2)
  • Elevation - the highest elevation of the island (m)
  • Scruz - the distance from Santa Cruz Island (km)
  • Adjacent  - the area of the adjacent island (km2)

Data Set: New York City Home Listing Data on Airbnb

While there are outliers that I know are affecting the analysis, I also look at an initial ability to create a linear model within NYC Airbnb data.
