p 559 Measure of association is a general term that refers to causality ANS: F Measure of association is a general term that refers to a number of bivariate statistical techniques used to measure the strength of a relationship between two variables, and causality is not always hypothesized or determined PTS: REF: p 559 NAT: AACSB: Reflective Thinking Covariance is the extent to which a change in one variable corresponds systematically to a change in another ANS: T PTS: NAT: AACSB: Reflective Thinking REF: p 559 If r = -0.88, this indicates a weak relationship between the two variables under study ANS: F This indicates a strong negative relationship PTS: REF: p 559 NAT: AACSB: Reflective Thinking The measure of association used in the textbook is the Pearson product-moment correlation coefficient and its symbol is r ANS: T PTS: NAT: AACSB: Reflective Thinking REF: p 559 A Spearman correlation is more appropriate for interval and ratio data than is the Pearson productmoment correlation ANS: F A Spearman correlation is more appropriate for ordinal level data PTS: REF: p 559 NAT: AACSB: Reflective Thinking The correlation coefficient, r, indicates the magnitude of the linear relationships but not the direction of that relationship ANS: F A correlation coefficient indicates both the magnitude of the linear relationship and the direction of that relationship © 2010

Correlation always means that a causal relationship exists between the two variables under study ANS: F Systematic covariation does not in and of itself establish causality The relationship would also

ANS: For nominal data, the statistical choice is cross-tabulation with 2 test For ordinal data, the statistical choice is the Spearman rank correlation or cross-tabulation with 2 test For interval/ratio data, the statistical choice is Pearson’s r or simple regression PTS: REF: p 560 NAT: AACSB: Reflective Thinking| AACSB: Communication Compare and contrast correlation, covariance, and causation ANS: Concomitant variation is one condition needed to establish a causal relationship between two variables When two variables covary, they display concomitant variation This systematic covariation does not in and of itself establish causality The relationship would also need to be nonspurious and that any hypothesized “cause” would have to occur before any subsequent effect PTS: REF: p 562 NAT: AACSB: Reflective Thinking| AACSB: Communication Explain how regression differs from correlation ANS: Regression analysis is a technique for measuring the linear association between a dependent and an independent variable Although simple regression and correlation are mathematically equivalent in most respects, regression is a dependence technique where correlation is an interdependence technique A dependence technique draws a distinction between dependent and independent variables An interdependence technique does not make this distinction and simply is concerned with how variables relate to one another PTS: REF: p 564 NAT: AACSB: Reflective Thinking| AACSB: Communication © 2010 Cengage Learning All Rights Reserved May not be scanned, copied or duplicated, or posted to a publicly accessible website, in whole or in part 4 Discuss the pros and cons of raw regression estimates and standardized regression estimates and discuss when each is appropriate ANS: Regression parameter estimates can be presented in either raw or standardized form One potential problem with raw parameter estimates is due to the fact that they reflect the measurement scale range However, if the purpose of the regression analysis is forecasting, then raw parameter estimates must be used This is another way of saying that the researcher’s primary interest is prediction A standardized regression coefficient () provides a common metric allowing regression results to be compared to one another no matter what the original scale range may have been Standardized regression estimates should be used when the researcher is testing explanatory hypotheses (i.e., when the purpose of the research is more explanation than prediction) PTS: REF: p 567 NAT: AACSB: Reflective Thinking| AACSB: Communication Discuss the steps in interpreting a simple regression output ANS: Interpreting simple regression output is a simple two-step process: (1) Interpret the overall significance of the model The output will include the “model F” and a significance value When the model F is significant (low p-value), the independent variable explains a significant portion of the variation in the dependent variable The coefficient of determination, or R2, can be interpreted This is the percentage of total variation in the dependent variable accounted for by the independent variable (2) The individual parameter coefficient is interpreted The t-value associated with the slope coefficient can be interpreted PTS: REF: pp 572-573 NAT: AACSB: Reflective Thinking| AACSB:
