Do drug abuse, unemployment rate and abortion rate affect the crime rate in the United States?

Do a multiple regression and a scatter graph with a line fit, and analyze its result using STATA. There should be a minimum of FOUR variables, one dependent variable and three independent variables.

You must have at least one of your variables have statistical significance for your paper. If none of your variables are statistically significant it makes it appear you are not building off the work of others.

Your independent variable should also be independent of one another, substantively different, and theoretically justifiable.

The dependent variable: Crime Rate
Independent variables: Abortion Rate, Unemployment Rate, and Drug Abuse. (if none of the independent variables are statistically significant, you should come up with one that is statistically significant)

The data should be from at least 30 years back until now.

VERY IMPORTANT: When the writer uploads the paper, he must also upload the data!*****
