# Statistics: Analysis of Variance (ANOVA) – #74

Question: Height is frequently named as a good predictor variable for weight among people of the same age and gender. The following are the raw data and results of a regression analysis of the heights and weights of a sample of 14 males between the ages of 19 and 26 who participated in a study.

 HEIGHT (cm) WEIGHT (kgs) 185 83.9 180 99.0 173 63.8 168 71.3 175 65.3 183 79.6 184 70.3 174 69.2 164 56.4 169 66.2 205 88.7 161 59.7 177 64.6 174 78.8

What information do you look at in the output to determine whether there is a statistically significant relationship between height and weight in this sample?
