The following example is from the book Introduction to Regression Modeling ( Abraham and Ledolter, 2006). The researchers were examining data on death penalty sentencing in Georgia. For each of 362 death penalty cases, the following information is provided: the outcome (death penalty, yes/ no), the race of the victim (white/ black), and the aggravation level of the crime. The lowest level (level 1) involved barroom brawls, liquor- induced arguments, and lovers' quarrels. The highest level (level 6) included the most vicious, cruel, cold- blooded, unprovoked crimes.
a. Compute the odds ratio for receiving the death penalty for each of the aggravation levels of the crime. b. Use a software package to fit the logistic regression model for the variables:
c. Is there an association between the severity of the crime and the probability of receiving the death penalty? d. Is the association between the severity of the crime and the probability of receiving the death penalty different for the two races? e. Compute the probability of receiving the death penalty for a crime of aggravation level 3 separately for a white and then for a black victim. Place 95% confidence intervals on the two probabilities.

I'm a Post graduate in Mechanical Engineering with specialization in Thermal. I had a chance to work with a world class organization like BARC for my Masters project. I have sound knowledge pertaining to Thermal sciences.
I have 3+ years of teaching experience in University as an Assistant Professor. Also,I have been working as a tutor and subject matter expert for 3+ years. Thus I have experience of teaching as well as providing textbook solutions in subject related to Math and Mechanical Engineering.
I always loved math more than any other subject throughout my student life. Now I would love to share my knowledge and passion for the subject with my friends who are willing to learn and grow.
