Question

This analysis involves two variables, gender and attitudes toward teen sex. Which is your dependent variable? Which is your independent variable? (10 points)

Independent variable: Gender

Dependent variable: Attitudes toward teen sex

What is the level of measurement for each variable? (10 points)

Gender ______________________

Attitudes towards teen sex _______

What are the null and alternative hypotheses regarding the potential association between gender and attitudes toward teen sex? (10 points)

Null hypothesis ______________________

Alternative hypothesis _________________

Answer #1

**Solution:-**

Independent variable: Gender

Dependent variable: Attitudes toward teen sex

The level of measurement for each variable.

Gender is nominal variable.

Attitudes towards teen sex is nominal variable.

The null and alternative hypotheses regarding the potential
association between gender and attitudes toward teen sex is Null
hypothesis : H_{0}: Gender and attitudes toward teen sex
are independent.

Alternative hypothesis : H_{a}: Gender and attitudes toward
teen sex are not independent.

A researcher is interested in gender differences in attitudes
toward dating. Specifically, she wants to test the hypothesis that
women are more accepting than men are of the idea that men should
always pay on the first date, and thus women should have a more
traditional view of dating than men do. Data are collected from 10
women and 10 men using a scale that measures dating behaviours and
attitudes. A score of 0 means that they have very nontraditional...

A regression analysis is a statistical assessment of the
association between two variables, one of which is dependent and
the other, independent. The dependent variable is y and the
independent variable is x. Regression analysis is used to find the
relationships between these variables. Variables within a
regression analysis can be negatively correlated or positively
correlated.
A situation in which one could model a regression analysis could
be the association of hours studied and a grade on a test. The...

You are the School Resources Officer for a large
metropolitan high school. Recently, a controversy has emerged
regarding arrest rates for youth that attend the school. The issue
is related to the current national controversy called
Disproportionate Minority Contact. Essentially, this controversy
alleges that criminal justice practitioners arrest a higher
proportion of minority individuals.
You have been asked to analyze the arrests you and
your colleagues make at the school. You have a list of all of the
students that...

Part C: Regression and Correlation Analysis
Use the dependent variable (labeled Y) and the independent
variables (labeled X1, X2, and X3) in the data file. Use Excel to
perform the regression and correlation analysis to answer the
following.
Generate a scatterplot for the specified dependent variable (Y)
and the X1 independent variable, including the graph of the "best
fit" line. Interpret.
Determine the equation of the "best fit" line, which describes
the relationship between the dependent variable and the selected...

The survey of Study Habits and Attitudes (SSHA) is a
psychological test that measures the motivation, attitude toward
school, and study habits of students. Scores range from 0 to 200.
The mean score of US college students is about 115, and the
standard deviation is about 30. A teacher who suspects that older
students have better attitudes towards school gives the SSHA to 25
students who are at least 30 years of age. Their mean score is
M=132.2.
