interpret the below. What do B and t mean

 Coefficientsa Model Unstandardized Coefficients Standardized Coefficients t Sig. B Std. Error Beta 1 (Constant) 7.029 .059 119.307 .000 Q1. Age .027 .001 .090 17.839 .000 a. Dependent Variable: Trust in Government Index (higher scores=more trust)

Solution:

In the given output, column B is the columns of the coefficient.

Constant = 7.029 is the intercept of the regression equation and it is the average value of the response variable when the value of the independent variable is 0

Q1. Age = 0.027 is the slope of the regression equation and it means for a unit change in the Age variable, the response variable (Trust in Government index) is expected to be increased by 0.027 units.

The t-value in the table means the test statistic for the given coefficients and these are used to test if the coefficients are statistically significant. In the given output, since the p-values are less than the significance level, we, therefore, conclude that both the coefficients are significant.
