Alumni donations are an important source of revenue for colleges and universities

Alumni donations are an important source of revenue for colleges and universities. If admin- isffators could determine the factors that could lead to increases in the percentage of alumni who make a donation, they might be able to implement policies that could lead to increased revenues. Research shows that students who are more satisfied with their contact with teachers are more Likely to graduate. As a result, one might suspect that smaller class sizes and lower stu- dent/faculty ratios-might lead to a higher percentage of satisfied graduates, which in tum might lead to incieases in the percentage of alumni who make a donation. The following table shows

data for 4g national universities. The Graduation Rate column is the percentage of students who initially enrolled at the university and graduated. The % of Classes Under 20 column shows the p”r””rrug”, of classes offered with fewer than 20 students. The Student/Faculty Ratio column L the number of students enrolled divided by the total number of faculty’ Finally, the Alumni Giving Rate column is the percentage of alumni who made a donation to the universify’
Based on the data provided please complete the following:

1. Use methods of descriptive statistics to summarize the data.

2. Develop an estimated simple linear regression model that can be used to predict the alumni giving rate , given the graduation rate. Discuss your findings.

3. Develop an estimated multiple linear regression model that could be used to predict the alumni giving rate using the graduation rate , % of classes under 20 and student/ faculty ratio as independent variables . Discuss your findings

4.Based on the results in part 2 and 3 , do you believe another regression model maybe more appropriate ? Estimate this model and discuss your results
5. What conclusions and recommendations can you derive from your analysis?What universities are achieving a substantially higher alumni giving rate than would be expected ,given their graduation rate , % of classes under 20 , and student/faculty ratio ? What universities are achieving a substantially lower alumni giving rate than would be expected ,given their graduation rate , % of class under 20, and student/faculty ratio?What other independent variables could be included in the model ?

The vintage restaurant, on CaptivaIsland near Fort Myers

 

The vintage restaurant, on CaptivaIsland near Fort Myers, Florida, is owned and operated by Karen Payne. The restaurant just completed its third year of operation. During that time, Karen sought to establish a reputation for the restaurant as a high-quality dining establishment that specializes in fresh seafood. Through the efforts of Karen and her staff, her restaurant has become one of the best and fastest-growing restaurants on the island. To better plan for future growth of the restaurant, Karen needs to develop a system that will enable her to forecast food and beverage sales by month for up to one year in advance.
Table 15.17 shows the value of food and beverage sales ($1000s) for the first three years of operation. managerial report Perform an analysis of the sales data for the vintage restaurant.

Prepare a report for Karen that summarizes your findings, forecasts, and recommendations. Include the following: 1. a time series plot. Comment on the underlying pattern in the time series. 2. Using the dummy variable approach, forecast sales for January through December of the fourth year. Assume that January sales for the fourth year turn out to be $295,000. What was your forecast error? If this error is large, Karen may be puzzled about the difference between your forecast and the actual sales value. What can you do to resolve her uncertainty in the forecasting procedure?
