After reading about an application of how estimation/regression analysis can be used in forecasting, consider the following:
- Is it odd that athletic-related determinants are rarely mentioned in this estimation?
- How can empirical functions estimating Olympic medal winnings be used in future Olympic Games?
- Can you foresee any pitfalls in using the result of past Olympic Games to say anything about the future?
Our classroom discussion will take place after midterm exam #1. I am looking forward to it!
