Using Linear Local Dependence Measure to Study the factors that are Leading to the Growth of Preferring the Application in Private Universities of Iraq


In this paper a measure of linear local dependence has been used between two random variables and a study is conducted for the properties of this measure where two examples of bivariate probability distributions has been considered, which are bivariate Gumbel distribution and bivariate Beta-Stacy distribution, and applied on data collected by using a questionnaire conducted to study the reasons for the increase of application in private collages in Iraq. Five elements has been considered as random variables and the dependence has been measured between every two elements to estimate how correlated these elements are and their effect on the application in private collages of Iraq generally and Baghdad specifically.
