In Exercise 63 we examined the relationship between log(GDPPC) and HDI. The number of Internet users (per 1000 people) is also positively associated with economic progress in a country. Here’s a scatterplot of Internet users (subscribers per 1000 people) against HDI:
a) Internet Users is a count of subscribers (per 1000). What re-expression is often useful for counts? Examine the histogram of Internet Users and the histogram of Internet Users using the re- expression you suggested. Comment.
b) Use the re- expression in a) for the scatterplot against HDI. Comment.
c) Would you feel confident using this relationship to predict the number of Internet Users based on the HDI?
