    Descriptive statistics

    Students of the College must turn in to Professor Spirling’s mailbox by4pm on Thursday, De-cember 11(no later!). Students of the Extension School should follow the dropbox instructions
    on the class website. Note that the course academic honesty policy applies to every homework,
    including this one. Take note that this homework uses the NES 2008 data, the States (full) data
    and the World (full) data located on the course website.
    Homework 6
    1. This question refers to a recent study by David Levine (\Self-Regulation, Compensation, and
    the Ethical Recruitment of Oocyte Donors”, appearing in the Hastings Report). He was
    interested in what factors in
    uence how much money college women are paid to donate eggs
    to infertile couples (measured in US dollars). He studied ads placed in di erent universities
    for eggs, and coded them according to whether they mentioned an appearance requirement,
    whether they had an ethnicity requirement and so on. Here is his table of regression results.
    We will focus on Model 1.
    Table 2. Regression estimates of factors influencing donor compensation

    OLS regression estimates are shown on the first line of each cell with heteroskedasticity-robust
    standard errors in parentheses below. Two summary statistics are provided: F indicates the f-statistic
    testing the significance of the model as a whole, and R
    2
    indicates that fraction of variation in the
    dependent variable explained by the independent variables. To ease interpretation of the interaction
    terms, the school SAT variable was mean-centered. The sample size was 105 for both models.
    * P < 0.1, ** P < 0.05, *** P < 0.01
    (a) The \Average school SAT” variable is measured as follows: it is the di erence between
    the average SAT score for the school the ad appeared in, minus the average SAT score

    for all the schools in the study (which was 1177). So, an ad placed at Harvard, where
    the average SAT is 1495, would be given a value of 1495 1177 = 318 on this indepen-dent variable. Without referring to speci c schools, appropriately interpret the partial
    regression coecient on \Average school SAT” in Model 1.
    (b) Is this variable signi cant? At the 0.05 level? At the 0.01 level?
    (c) Consider buying an egg from a woman at Harvard. The ad is placed on behalf of
    an agency (Agency=1), on behalf of a couple (Couple=1), there is a State IVF de-mand (State IVF demand=1), she meets the appearance requirement stated in the ad
    (Appearance Requirement=1) and she meets the Ethnicity requirement (Ethnicity
    Requirement=1). What could she expect to be paid for a single egg donation? (using
    Model 1)
    2. This question uses the NES 2008 data. A researcher is interested in attitudes towards the
    federal government in di erent parts of the United States. He begins by considering the rela-tionship between citizens’ views toward the federal government (fedgovtherm) and whether
    they live in the South (south). The researcher has a theory that individuals from di erent
    parts of the United States di er in how they feel towards the federal government. In particu-lar, he suspects that individuals from the South view the federal government more favorably
    than non-southerners.
    (a) Write down a null and (two sided) alternative hypothesis in terms of .
    (b) Conduct the relevant bivariate regression, and report the coecient table you obtain.
    Note that thesouthvariable takes on the values 0 and 1, where 0 correspondents to
    respondents from the Non-South and 1 to respondents from the South.
    (c) Suppose the sample size is 500 in this case. Calculate a 95% con dence interval around
    ^
    .
    (d) What is the value for ^ for this regression? What does it represent in terms of X? How
    do we interpret it substantively?
    (e) Is theXvariable a signi cant predictor? At the 0.05 level?
    (f) What is the predicted warmth towards the federal government for people from the South?
    (g) In terms of his predictions, is the researcher’s theory supported by the evidence from
    the regression?
    (h) Another researcher is concerned that the rst researcher’s nding are spurious, and that
    he ought to control for the race of respondents (in particular, if respondents identify as

    black or white). Brie
    y explain why the relationship might be spurious for thesouth
    variable and how controlling for race would help.
    (i) The second researcher considers using race (race2) as a control added to the previous
    regression. What values can therace2variable take in the data (hint: use the Variable
    View), and what do the codes correspond to?
    (j) Use the \Transform” function in SPSS to create a dummy variable version of this vari-able (calledracedummy). Preserve the original order of the variable values. What will
    be the base category forracedummy?
    (k) Conduct the relevant multiple regression, and report the coecient table you obtain.
    (l) Is the new variable statistically signi cant? At the 0.01 level?
    (m) Consider a non-southerner, who identi es as black. What would we predict as that per-son’s thermometer feeling towards the federal government?
    (n) What individuals does ^ now tell us about? What is their predicted feeling towards the
    federal government?
    3. This question uses the (full)statesdata. A researcher is interested in explaining the degree
    to which states restrict abortions (abortlaw, as the number of restrictions a state has in
    2010). He begins with a theory that states with more conservative voters are likely to have
    more restrictions on abortion. To test this theory, he uses the percent of the mass public that
    identi es as conservative (conpctm) as an independent variable.
    (a) Run that bivariate regression, and report the coecient table.
    (b) What are the units forXhere?
    (c) Interpret the regression coecient, using the correct units for XandY.
    (d) If the mass public is 47% conservative (approximately the level of conservationism in
    Mississippi), what would we predict for the number of abortion restrictions?
    (e) Calculate theR
    2
    for this regression using the residual and total sum of squares from the
    ANOVA table. Show your calculations.
    (f) What is the adjusted-R
    2
    for this regression?
    3
    (g) The researcher decides to add the percentage of each state’s population with at least a
    college degree (college)to his regression. Report the new coecient table.
    (h) Interpret the partial regression coecient on percent conservative for this new regres-sion. Be sure to mention percent with college degree appropriately in your response.
    (i) What is theR

    and adjusted-R

    for this regression (no need to show calculation)? What
    do you notice about the values of these measures relative to the previous regression?
    What does that imply about the newXvariable?
    (j) Finally, the researcher decides to add the percent of the population in urban areas
    (urban) to the other variables in his regression. Interpret the partial regression co-ecient on this new variable for the regression, being sure to mention the other Xs
    appropriately in your response. There is no need to report the table.
    (k) In this new regression, has the addition of a variable changed the coecients on the
    otherXvariables compared to the last model? If yes, how so?
    (l) What is theF-statistic for this `complete’ model? Are the independent variables jointly
    signi cant at the 0.05 level?
    4. This question uses theWorlddata set. A researcher is interested in what explains variation
    in inequality across countries, as measured by the Gini coecient (gini08). This variable
    runs from 0 to 100, with 0 representing perfect equality and 100 maximum inequality.
    (a) The researcher begins with a theory that wealthier nations will have lower levels of in-equality than poorer nations. Assume the researcher measures a nation’s wealth with
    thehigdpvariable, a dummy variable that equals 1 if a country has a high GDP, and
    0 otherwise. Run the relevant regression and report the table. Is the researcher’s theory
    supported in terms of coecient direction and signi cance?
    (b) The researcher decides to add OECD membership (oecd) to the regression. Her theory
    is that belonging to the OECD might incentivize countries to adopt social welfare pro-grams, and therefore we should expect OECD membership to be negatively associated
    with inequality. Add this regressor, and report the relevant table.
    (c) For a new regression, the researcher creates an interaction term between the high GDP
    variable and OECD membership. Using the \Transform” function in SPSS, create that
    interaction term and call it hioecd. Use hioecdalongsidehigdpandoecdin a re-gression to predict Gini coecient (gini08). What happens to the regression? Why?
    (hint: take a look at the `data view’ and note the values these variables take relative to
    one another for particular observations)

    5. A researcher wishes to use qualitative methods to understand why some American cities have
    su ered economic decline (the dependent variable). In particular she is interested in evaluat-ing whether the absence or presence of major research universities (the independent variable),
    which generate new technology and innovation, is responsible for economic outcomes. She
    chooses Cleveland as her primary case. Her table of cases is as follows:
    City Region Size Main industry Major research universities?
    Cleveland Rust belt Medium Manufacturing No
    Detroit Rust belt Large Manufacturing No
    Philadelphia East coast Medium Services Yes
    Pittsburgh Rust belt Medium Manufacturing Yes
    Los Angeles West coast Large Entertainment Yes
    Jacksonville South Large Import/Export No
    (a) The researcher rst wishes to use a most-di erent design to investigate the relationship
    between having major research universities and economic decline. Which city could she
    use as a most-di erent comparison case for Cleveland?
    (b) The researcher then wishes to use a most-similar design to investigate the relationship
    between having major research universities and economic decline. Which city could she
    use as a most-similar comparison case for Cleveland?
    (c) Suppose the researcher has a theory that involves an interaction e ect. In particular,
    she thinks that the e ect of major research universities is more pronounced for those
    cities that are larger. Which of these research designs should she use?

    The association between physical fitness level and loneliness index among the older people who live alone

    Project Summary
    This cross sectional study was designed to investigate the association between physical fitness level and loneliness index among the older people who live alone. The problem of population aging is getting worse. However, reflected by research, most of Hong Kong elderly was feeling lonely and unhappy. Elderly who are living alone are specifically vulnerable due to loss of friends, loss of spouse and family, loss of income or loss of mobility. Therefore, there is a great need to focus on this group and provide more insight to establish ways through which their loneliness can be reduced.
    Eighty elderly who live alone and aged 60 or above were selected by convenience sampling from Chan Kwan Tung Social Centre for the elderly in Sham Shui Po. Physical fitness test of BMI, Chair Stand Test, Up and Go Test and 2mins Step Test were provided to test the older adults’ fitness level. Samples had to complete the self-administrated questionnaire and UCLA (University of California, Los Angeles) loneliness scale as well. All data analyzed by SPSS version 21. Descriptive statistics were used to provide a description on the participants’ characteristics. Majorly, the correlation of fitness test scores and loneliness index were figured out. In conclusion, participants who had better results on BMI and Steps Test significantly scoring lower on UCLA loneliness scale (r= 0.31, p=0.005; r=-0.24, p=0.03). However, there was no relationship between the results of Chair Stand Test or Up and GO Test and UCLA scale.

    Study Aims
    To investigate the association between physical fitness level and loneliness index among the older people who live alone.
    Research Questions
     What is the association between physical fitness level and loneliness index among the older people who live alone.
     What are the risk factors of loneliness among older people living alone?
    Research Hypothesis
    There is no significant correlation between elderly fitness level and loneliness index as fitness level increase, the loneliness level decrease.
    Study Design
    This was a cross-sectional study to explore the relationship between physical fitness and loneliness index of older adults. To measure the elderly fitness level, physical test battery was provided to all subjects. Subjects completed the UCLA Loneliness scale after all fitness assessments. Subjects also had to answer the self-administrated questionnaire which was designed to explore the characteristics. The process of data collection for each sample took no more than 15mins. Pilot study had conducted prior to test the validation of the study design and the self-administration questionnaire ultimately.
    Population and Sampling
    Study population was all the older people living alone and aged 60 or above. In additional, those elderly who had or had not engaged in any physical exercise in the past were also considered. Shum Shui Po was one of the districts with high elderly population proportion. Therefore 80 samples were selected by convenience sampling from Chan Kwan Tung Social Centre for the elderly in Shum Shui Po. Basically, subjects were required with an ability to perform independent living.
    Exclusion criteria
    Participants with the following conditions were excluded from the study:
    Suffering physical from medically diagnosed conditions such as coronary heart disease, stroke, Chronic Obstructive Airway Disease, Osteoporosis and serious cataract etc. that would interfere with participation in moderate and vigorous aerobic physical activities such as walking briskly, biking on level ground or with few hills, sports where you catch and throw (table tennis, volleyball), tennis (doubles), water aerobics, ballroom and line dancing (Central Health Education Unit of Department of Health, 2012)
    With disability
    Suffering neurological disorders that would interfere with participation in moderate and vigorous aerobic physical activities, for example, dementia and Parkinsonism.
    High fall risk. This is determined by the high fall risk assessed by the health professional within six months. If the subject has not been diagnosed within six months, he/she will be provided the Morse Fall Scale (Appendix I) compulsorily. The subject who score 25 or below can participate into the study.
    Answering “NO” once or more on Physical Activity Readiness Questionnaire (PAR-Q) (Appendix II)
    Could not understand Cantonese, Putonghua and English.
    Recruitment of Participants
    To recruit participants, the researcher approached in person and explain the purpose of the study and what it entails. The researcher also illustrated the benefits of participating in the study, how data will be collected and stored. They were voluntary and informed of their right to withdraw from the study at any point with no punishment. All of the participants signed a letter of consent before they were allowed to participate in this study. Before fitness assessment, participants must pass the PAR-Q (Appendix II).

    Ethical issue
    Risk management
    Before exercises, participants should passed the Physical Activity Readiness Questionnaire (PAR-Q). If answering “NO” on the questionnaire once or more, he/she was not be suggested to receive fitness test. During the physical fitness test, fall risk had been observed carefully. When the subject felt tire, enough time of rest was provided. Moreover, research helper stood beside the older subject anytime to avoid the fall accidence in those four fitness test stations. Considered completing chair stand test and 2 minutes step test may lead pants or muscle tire even ache, a nurse was arranged to stand by to lessen worry and risk at health problem after the test.
    The research helpers were asked to look carefully at if there is any abnormal appearance or behavior that may indicate he/she was at risk of health problems such as example dizziness, shortness of breath and chest tightness. If there have any of such symptoms, the test will be stopped immediately and inform the in-charge of the Centre.
