SESSION 4 CORRELATION AND REGRESSION ANALYSIS

The correlation analysis will study the linear relationship between the length of service
(in days) and cost per days (in dollars) for 10 patients on a home health care program. To
visualize the relationship, scatter diagram is constructed and shown below.

As observed from the scatter diagram, it is expected that the correlation coefficient, r, is
negative. To formally test this assertion, correlation coefficient, r, is computed.

*. Correlation is significant at the 0.05 level (2-tailed).

The previous table shows that the computed correlation coefficient is -0.728. That is,
there exists a negative correlation or relationship between length of service and cost per
day. It is expected that for shorter length of service, the daily cost to be incurred per
patient tends to be higher.

Since the correlation coefficient is negative, then it is also expected that b (slope
coefficient) is also negative. To justify the assertion that b (slope coefficient) is negative,
regression model equation will be fitted. This regression model will predict the cost per
day given the length of services. Thus, cost per day will be the dependent variable (Y) and
length of service will be the independent variable (X). The following table presents the
results of the regression analysis using SPSS.

a. Dependent Variable: Cost per Day (Y)

From the results above, the equation of the regression model is defined as:
Y^ i=110.0350.315 X i + i

where Y^ i is the predicted cost per day (in dollars),


Xi is the actual length of service (in days)

and i is the regression model error term

The regression model equation estimates that for every one day increase in length of
service, the expected daily cost is predicted to decrease by $0.315.
Further, since the p-value of the t-test for slope coefficient is 0.017 (which is less than
0.05 level of significance, ), then it can be concluded that there is sufficient evidence
that the length of service significantly affects cost per day.

As presented in the previous table, the results of one-way ANOVA indicate that the
employees current salary significantly differ depending on their employment categories,
F(2,471)=434.481, p<0.000. That is, employment category significantly affects employees
current salary.

To determine further which among employment categories have significantly difference


on current salary, post-hoc analysis is performed using Scheffe Test on Pairwise
Comparison of Means and the results are present in the next table.

As shown in the previous table, the p-values of t-tests are less than 0.05 level of
significance when comparing mean current salaries of clerical against manager (p<0.000)
and custodial against manager (p<0.000), while the p-value when comparing clerical and
custodial is not less than 0.05 (p=0.310). Therefore, it can be concluded that the mean
current salary of manager-level employees is significantly different (specifically, higher
than) from clerical and custodial employees. On the other hand, the mean current salaries
between clerical and custodial employees do not vary significantly.

That is, employees educational level significantly affects ones current salary.

(Additional) Looking closely on the mean current salary for each educational level (refer
to Descriptives table), it can be observed that employees having higher educational level
tends to have higher current salary. To formally test this assertion, linear regression
model analysis can also be performed to determine if there exists a linear relationship
between current salary and educational level of employees.

happiness level between white and black is less than 0.05 level of significance (p<0.000).
Therefore, it can be concluded that the general happiness level of white race is
significantly different from black race. Further, as shown in the Descriptives table, the
mean general happiness level of white race is 1.77 which is lower than the mean general
happiness level of black (1.97). Thus, it can also be concluded that white race is happier
than black race.

As shown in the previous table, the t-tests having p-value less than 0.05 level of
significance is only observed when comparing general happiness level of managerial and
general level (p=0.003). Therefore, it can be concluded that the general happiness level of
employees under the managerial category is significantly different from employees under
general labor category. Further, as shown in the Descriptives table, the mean general
happiness level of employees under the managerial category is 1.70 which is lower than
the employees under the general labor category (1.93). Thus, it can also be concluded
that employees under the managerial category is significantly happier than those
employees under the general labor category.

As shown in the previous table, the t-tests having p-values less than 0.05 level of
significance are observed when comparing the following pairs of occupational categories:

(1) Managerial versus Technical-Sales-Admin Support


(2) Managerial versus Service
(3) Managerial versus Production, Craft and Repair
(4) Managerial versus General Labor

Further, as shown in the Descriptives table, the mean life excitement level of employees
under the managerial category is 1.40 which is lower than the mean life excitement level
of employees under technical-sales-admin support (1.62), service (1.63), production, craft
and repair (1.71) and general labor (1.72). Therefore, it can be concluded that the life
excitement level of employees under the managerial category is significantly lower from
employees under the four stated categories, which then implies that that employees under
the managerial category is significantly more excited to life than those employees under
the four stated categories.

(Note: Lower General Happiness Level implies Happier Perception)

On the other hand, there is no significant difference on life excitement level between
employees under the managerial category and those belonging to farming, forest and
fishing category.

As presented in the previous table, the results of one-way ANOVA indicate that general
happiness level differ significantly when grouped according to the respondents highest
year of school completed, F(18,1479)=2.712, p<0.000. That is, respondents highest year
of school completed significantly affects general happiness level.
To determine further which among educational attainment levels have significantly
difference on general happiness level, post-hoc analysis is performed using Scheffe Test
on Pairwise Comparison of Means and the results are present in the next table.

Unfortunately, all pairwise Scheffes tests comparison of means fail to determine which
pairs exhibit significant differences. This is expected to occur since the independent
variable, highest year of school completed, consists of 19 levels.

As presented in the previous table, the results of one-way ANOVA indicate that life
excitement level differ significantly when grouped according to the respondents highest
year of school completed, F(18,958)=4.772, p<0.000. That is, respondents highest year of
school completed significantly affects life excitement level.

To determine further which among educational attainment levels have significantly


difference on life excitement level, post-hoc analysis is performed using Scheffe Test on
Pairwise Comparison of Means and the results are present in the next table.

Unfortunately, all pairwise Scheffes tests comparison of means fail to determine which
pairs exhibit significant differences. This is expected to occur since the independent
variable, highest year of school completed, consists of 19 levels.

As presented in the previous table, the results from the paired samples test indicates that
there is a significant mean difference in the recorded measurements between oral and
rectal temperature, t(df=8)=-3.200, p=0.013. Further, since the mean rectal temperature
(38.033 C) is higher than the mean oral temperature (37.600 C), then it can be concluded
the rectal temperature is significantly higher than the oral temperature.

As presented in the previous table, the results from the paired samples test indicates that
there is a significant mean difference on bacterial colonies count between the two
observers, t(df=11)=-2.853, p=0.016. Further, bacterial colonies count detected by
Observer 2 is significantly more than the count detected by Observer 1.
