Primary Model

Below is a regression analysis without 17 outliers that have been removed

Regression Analysis: wfood versus totexp, income, age, nk

The regression equation is

wfood = 0.378 - 0.00129 totexp - 0.000054 income + 0.00170 age + 0.0317 nk

Secondary Model

Below is a regression analysis without 17 outliers that have been removed and dropping the income variable   

Regression Analysis: wfood versus totexp, age, nk

The regression equation is

wfood = 0.376 - 0.00132 totexp + 0.00165 age + 0.0317 nk

The Null Hypothesis - H0: No difference between the primary and secondary model

1465_The F-Wald Test.png

Since the F value is 1.2005 < 3.8477 there is sufficient evidence to suggest that we accept H0 implying that there is no difference between the primary and secondary model and income can be removed.
