Explanatory variable is this a math term?
oh is this like a statistics question
Any variable that explains the response variable. Often called an independent variable or predictor variable.
so what is the response variable?
The outcome of a study. A variable you would be interested in predicting or forecasting. Often called a dependent variable or predicted variable.
i think the outcome is people's satisfaction with their married life
so... the explanatory variable is....
i think the explanatory variable would be parental's martial status
let me get a second opinion brb
thats what i had at first but then i was second guessing
the first thing i said is the outcome and i think parental martial status explains our outcome
ok unfortunately i couldn't find another opinion but i think i applied the definitions correctly --- i'm going to look for examples brb
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
ok i think i'm right lol :)
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
it was parental martial status but thanks
i feel 98% sure
oops explanatory variable not response variable*
sorry i was unfamiliar with these terms thanks for giving me a higher vocabulary :)
lol no problem
