Abstract

The international realm of the business world is often difficult to fully understand or master. This honors thesis addresses international statistics and their application to a business problem. It is designed to aid MECO, an international tool and machinery manufacturer, in assessing H10its World Sales Potential. The study covers the process of initial international data collection, including guidelines for beginning a world study and collecting needed data. Then, an extensive list of sources of international statistics precedes the final regression analysis. This final section is an evaluation of the statistical processes and methods used by MECO. Adjustments to MECO's regression model are recommended. After making those adjustments, MECO will have a good, basic predictor of its world sales potential.
