Darcie Warner, an analyst at the U.S. Census Bureau, is researching why the percentage of households without access to the internet varies by state. This measure (NOINT) will be the dependent variable in her empirical analysis. She has collected data on what she believes are two relevant explanatory variables: the percentage of foreign-born residents by state (PFORB) and the poverty rate by state (POVERTY).
