Finally, having analyzed the sample data through relevant computer simulation, it will be easy for one to use the regression model to estimate the prevalence of childhood obesity in the United States. The deductions made from the sample analysis regarding the population will also be backed by a graphical representation of the correlation and other computed analysis. Through the graphs the trends of childhood obesity will be represented for better understanding.
