Initial Approach

Our results varied as our understanding of the problem evolved. Since we first thought that attendance to Let’s Talk was dependent on the amount of people who passed through the locations of Let’s Talk, we measured foot traffic at each location while Let’s Talk was held. Despite our best efforts, only four to five data points were collected per location due to scheduling conflicts. We thought there might be a correlation between the two values, however when both were graphed and fitted to a line, the R-squared values were very low. This indicates no correlation between foot traffic and attendance to Let’s Talk, but due to the small sample size the final results are inconclusive. In addition, our anyLogic simulations were also inconclusive given that the simulation type was continuous rather than discrete.
