Look at the following Weight Satisfaction Survey questions, data, and Minitab data analysis output. The data are similar to what would have been obtained if you sent the survey to 10 people. Your task is to evaluate the information and determine if there are any significant results and also to determine if there are any apparent gender differences. Based on your observation and evaluation, prepare a report in a 1- to 2-page Microsoft Word document.
Questions for Weight Satisfaction Survey:
Answer the following questions to the best of your ability:
|Male or Female||Height (in inches)||Weight (in pounds)||Age (in years)|
Are you satisfied with you weight? Yes or No (satis)
Do you exercise regularly? Yes or No (exreg)
If yes, how many times a week do you exercise? _______ (tweek)
Have you ever misrepresented your weight? Yes or No (misrep)
Do you mind talking about weight? Yes or No
If yes, please explain: _____________________ (expl)
Data has been entered in the table under the variable names given in parentheses at the end of the survey questions. It is important to note that each participant has two lines of data, and the answer to the open-ended question is typed on the second line. The coding information for the variables that need coding is as follows: gender (1 = male, 2 = female), satis (1 = yes, 2 = no), exreg (1 = yes, 2 = no), misrep (1 = yes, 2 = no), and mind (1 = yes, 2 = no).
