A recent news report indicated that out of 105 people polled, 65 men and 15 women had given the president a high approval rating, while 15 men and 10 women had given the president a low approval rating. A chi-square test yields these results: ?2 = 8.33, df = 1, p < .01. You would conclude: A. Men tend to approve of the president’s performance; women don’t. B. Women are more likely to approve of the president than are men. C. Men are more likely to approve of the president than are women. D. Men and women do not differ significantly in their approval of the president. 21. The board of trustees of a small college demanded a more diverse student body. Most of the college's minority students came from a large metropolitan area. The admissions staff asked graduates outside this area and outside the state to help with recruiting. In addition, some money was spent on media advertising. To assess the effect of this campaign, the current year's requests for applications were classified as Large Metropolitan Area (565), Rest of State (410), and Out of State (216). An analysis of addresses over previous years showed Large Metropolitan Area, 51%; Rest of State, 40%; Out of State, 9%. What statistic should be used to analyze these data? A. The for independence B. The for goodness of fit C. The Kruskal-Wallis H D. The Mann-Whitney U 22. A nonparametric procedure that corresponds to the independent samples t-test is the A. Mann-Whitney U. B. Wilcoxon T test. C. Kruskal-Wallis H. D. Friedman . 23. Assume that you have conducted a one-way in which the is that the frequencies in the categories are equal. If the was not significant, the appropriate conclusion is that A. other models of need to be tested. B. we expect that the population of interest is distributed among the categories to the same degree as the sample. C. there is insufficient evidence one way or the other regarding how the population of interest is distributed among the categories. D. the population of interest is distributed equally among the categories.
