How big of a factor is age in determining adoption time? 
Question Type (circle one): Lookup Arithmetic Statistical 

all animals at the shelter name, age, and weeks 

lrplot(animalstable, "name", "age", "weeks") 

The slope is positive (0.789) and R=0.448, so there is a moderate, positive relationship
Is weight a bigger factor?


I performed a linear regression on a sample of animals at the shelter[dataset or subset] and found a moderate (R=.448), positiveweak / strong / moderate (R=…), positive / negative correlation between age[xaxis] and time to adoption[yaxis]. I would predict that a 1 year[xaxis units] increase in age[xaxis] is associated with a .789 week[slope, yunits] increaseincrease / decrease in time to adoption[yaxis].
