Title

OLS Regression Analysis for Property Crime in 2018 in AZ, CO, UT, NM by County Subdivision

Subject

This is a map of the residuals of an OLS regression as well as statistical results and a description. The regression is between property crime per 10,000 people and 5 explanatory variables: percent below poverty,
median income, percent with bachelor's degree above 25, percent Caucasian, and percent male between age 18-25

Description

This statistical analysis of the map shows a strong correlation between percent male between 18-25 and property crime, with a higher percent male leading to more property crime (p=.0001). Residual colors on the map show where the true data values are either higher or lower than the predicted values from the regression, Lighter coloring (like light orange) shows where predicted values were smaller than true data, and darker (red) shows where the values are larger. The Moran's I looks for clustering, and the other information describes the map and analysis.
