### The Term Paper on The Relationship Between Judged Attraction and Assumed Wealth

Whether a person is aware of it or not, everywhere they go, they are mentally judging people and creating an opinion about others without necessarily ever even meeting them. These judgments can be based off of simple appearance, or actions, or any other sort of visible aspect of a person. Simply put, humans are judgmental creatures. One of the most common aspects of a person’s life that is judged ...

Calculate the Spearman’s rank correlation coefficient. Subject Student Statistics Computer List each set of scores in a column. Rank the two sets of scores. Place the appropriate rank beside each score. Head a column d and determine the difference in rank for each pair of scores. (Note: Sum of the d column should always be 0) 5.

Regression indicates the degree to which the variation in one variable X, is related to or can be explained by the variation in another variable Y ? Once you know there is a significant linear correlation, you can write an equation describing the relationship between the x and y variables. ? This equation is called the line of regression or least squares line. • The equation of a line may be written as: y ? a ? bx • where b is the slope of the line and a is the y-intercept.
