I have looked over the paper that you attached (in the other thread) for this project.
I was able to collect data for international sales from the paper, but the number of stores was not given for each year so I created data for that variable. The data set that I came up with is:
Year; Number of international stores; International sales
1995; 276; $1.5 billion
1996; 390; $3.7 billion
1997; 505; $5.0 billion
1998; 612; $7.5 billion
Also, in the paper, you have the following research question:
"Is the increase in sales revenue from years 1995 through 1998 because of the rise in store globalization?" (emphasis added)
The problem with this research question is that it is attempting to determine a causal relationship between the two variables. It is exceedingly difficult to prove such a relationship. A more appropriate research question would be:
"Is there a linear relationship between the increase in international sales revenue from years 1995 through 1998 and the number of international stores?"
Please let me know if you need to consult with your instructor about the data set and the changed research question.
