14. 14. Reporting ANOVA • Example: A factorial ANOVA found a significant difference in income based on both race and gender, F(5, 27157) = 573.72, p < .001. Specifically, males were found to have significantly higher incomes than females, F(1, 27157) = 383.95, p < .001. Also, income was found to vary significantly based on race, F(2, 27157) = 117.93, p < .001. Finally, a significant interaction between race and gender was found, F(2, 27157) = 55.09, p < .001. • • in other words, you need to identify which one is the independent variable and what are the two dependent variables
15. 15. Support general claims
16. 16. The Value of inferential statistics • You have a lot of interesting variables where you can do a crosstab analysis. Failure to do so limits the data to descriptive analysis and you won’t be able to justify any relationships whatsoever.
