In the MinnLand dataset in the alr4 package, fit two possible models with log(acrePrice) or sqrt(acrePrice) as the response (y) variable and your choice of independent (x) variables. Be sure to explain why you chose the variables that you did (and the help file has great descriptions of the data). Develop those two possible candidate models (both
log(acrePrice) or sqrt(acrePrice)
) and compare them using:

In the MinnLand dataset in the alr4 package, fit two possible models with log(acrePrice) or sqrt(acrePrice) as the response variable and your cho
ice of independent variables. We will be using log(acrePrice) in this exercise. Note that the interpretations won’t change even if we used sqrt(acrePrice).
Let us start the exercise by importing the required packages, i.e. alr4 and caret. The package caret is used for cross validation.
m(list=ls(all=TRUE))

ary(alr4)
## lattice theme set by effectsTheme()
## See ?effectsTheme for details.
li
ary(caret)
The first regression model we fit is between log(acrePrice) and year. It is well known that the land prices increases with time. This model can help us to confirm that notion.
## Regression between log(acrePrice) and yea
plot(as.factor(MinnLand\$year), MinnLand\$acrePrice, xlab = "Year",
ylab = "Sale Price in Dollars per Acre",
main = "year vs. acrePrice")
lm(log(MinnLand\$acrePrice) ~ as.factor(MinnLand\$year))
##
## Call:
## lm(formula = log(MinnLand\$acrePrice) ~ as.factor(MinnLand\$year))
##
## Coefficients:
## (Intercept) as.factor(MinnLand\$year)2003
## 7.27175 -0.00155
## as.factor(MinnLand\$year)2004 as.factor(MinnLand\$year)2005
