12.12 Estimation and Prediction of the Response Variable in Simple Linear Regression

I discuss confidence intervals for the mean of Y and prediction intervals for a single value of Y for a given value of X in simple linear regression. I discuss the form of
the confidence interval for the mean and prediction interval for a single value and their standard errors.

The data used is estimated from a figure in:
Singer et al. (2004). Empathy for pain involves the affective but not sensory components of pain. Science, 303:1157–1162.
