This project examines the relationship between the different factors such as environment and economy of specific cities in the United States in 1960 that could potentially affect mortality rate. The model is constructed by using multiple linear regression on the dataset made by McDonald, G.C. and Schwing, R.C in 1973 for 60 different cities in the United States. A significant model is constructed with a predictive power of 76% but the purpose of the project is to apply theories learn in class to a real life dataset in producing a model.
