Name Lengths


Do people with long last names also tend to have long first names? In this assignment, you will analyze data to investigate this question, construct and analyze a linear regression model based on the relationship between the length of the first and last names in the dataset that you collected, and draw insights into the phenomenon within the limitations of the model. You will count the alphabet letters used to write the name of 100 individuals from this dataset   arabic_first_last_name _1_.csv

e  .

Part I: Exploratory Analysis

a) Download the arabic_first_last_name.csv file which contains Arabic first and last name columns.

b) Construct a dot plot of the last name lengths and comment on any interesting features of this plot.

c) Construct a dot plot of the first name lengths and comment on any interesting features. Describe how the distribution of first name lengths compares to that of last name lengths.

Part II: Regression Model

a) Construct a scatterplot of x and y.

b) Explain if this is the plot consistent with the theory that people with long last names tend to also have long first names?

c) What is the value of the correlation coefficient for this data set?

Part III: Reporting

a) Discuss if your first and last name are included in the context of the model.

b) Discuss the limitations of the data, the model, and the analysis.

c) Write a 100-200 words meaningful paragraph summarizing the findings from the analysis.

Once you have developed responses to the task prompts, you will organize them in a professional 3-5-page report, not including the title and reference pages, that summarizes your actions, calculations, and findings. You will upload a zipped file that includes your response and all supporting files.
