so here is an example: Consider a study performed by a medical center to determine which of two heart surgeries is most effective: angioplasty (running rubber tubes through the arteries) or bypass (rerouting arteries). The purpose of either procedure is to prolong the life of the patient. The study will certainly record the survival time of each patient (measured from the time of the surgery). This really is the outcome of the study; survival time is the response variable

we clearly want to know people's satisfication with their married life this is like totally the outcome so it cannot be the response variable the response variable is what will give us this outcome which is the parental martial status
