Question

Consider a model to predict a score earned in a game based on the gender of a player. Based on the sample data, males have higher average scores than females. In computer output for the model, the intercept is 53.4 and the coefficient of Gender is −1.4. How is the variable Gender coded and what is the average scores for males and females in the sample?

A : The variable Gender was coded as 0 for females and 1 for males. The average score for males is 52. The average score for females is 53.4.

B : The variable Gender was coded as 0 for females and 1 for males. The average score for males is 53.4. The average score for females is 52.

C : The variable Gender was coded as 1 for females and 0 for males. The average score for males is 53.4. The average score for females is 52.

D : The variable Gender was coded as 1 for females and −1 for males. The average score for males is 54.8. The average score for females is 52.

E : The variable Gender was coded as −1 for females and 1 for males. The average score for males is 52. The average score for females is 54.8.

Answer #1

The equation here is given as:

Score = 53.4 - 1.4 * Gender

For gender = 0 as female and 1 as male, average score is given
as 53.4 when we put gender = 0 for females and 52 when we put
gender = 1 for males. **Therefore A is the correct answer
here.**

For gender = 1 as female and 0 as male, average score is given
as 53.4 when we put gender = 0 for males and 52 when we put gender
= 1 for females. **Therefore C is also the correct answer
here.**

**Only these are the correct answers here.**

An investigator developed a multiple regression model for
employee salaries at a particular company. In this multiple
regression model, the salaries are in thousands of dollars. For
example, a data entry of 35 for the dependent variable indicates a
salary of $35,000. The indicator variable for gender is coded as if
male and if female. The computer output of this multiple regression
model shows that the coefficient for this variable is -4.2. The t
test showed that was significant at...

the exam, the number of times they were absent during the semester,
and their genders. The data for these variables are given in the
accompanying table. Complete parts a through d below.

We have developed a multiple regression model to predict the
number of volunteers for a monthly charity event. One of the
independent variables is Rain: a binary variable equal to 1 if it
rains on the day of the event, and 0 otherwise. In the regression
output, the coefficient for Rain is -22. What does that coefficient
mean, precisely, with regard to the model’s predictions?

Educ = the number of years of education,
Exper = the number of months of experience,
Gender = the gender of an individual; 1 for males, and
0 for females.
