The Cost of Land
About Data Collection and Analysis Activities:
Our purpose for these activities is to give you "rich" data sets that will provide you with an opportunity to practice some of the things we've talked about. These are not "exercises" in the usual sense, in that we are not grading them or looking for you to do any one particular thing with these data. But we hope that, while you explore, questions occur to you that you pass on to the rest of the class and also hope that you learn something from your explorations!
The Data and possible research questions
For this activity you'll analyze a data set that concerns the
value of land. Variables that might contribute the value of a property
that are included in the data set include the total acreage, the size
of any buildings on the property, and various features of the building
(number of rooms, floors, if a garage is attached, etc).
