## Simple regression analysis

Hypothesis: There is no relationship between the number of injuries and the amount compensation.

Interpretation: The results indicate that amount of compensation is positively influenced the number of injuries. Constant is 2.05 indicating variation in performance when the variable is zero; a unit change in the number injuries increase compensation amount by 9.4%.

R square is 12% indicating that number of injuries accounts for 37% changes in the amount of compensation. This is weak of association and does not reflect the extent to which any particular independent variable is associated with the dependent variable.
