9B Exercises
Anxiety and Country
This study examined differences in anxiety level between an industrial country
and a nonindustrial country. Anxiety is assessed three ways—cognitive, affective, and
behavioral—with higher scores indicating higher levels of the anxiety dimensions.
Using the SPSS data file for Chapter 9B (located on the Web-based study site—
http://www.sagepub.com/amrStudy), answer the following questions.
1. Is MANOVA an appropriate statistical technique for this research? Explain.
2. Examine the mean scores on the anxiety dimensions between the two countries.
Do there appear to be mean differences between the two groups on the
three dependent variables?
3. According to the Wilks’s lambda test, is there a significant difference between
the two countries on the linear combination (the variate) of the dependent
variables?
4. What is the effect size? Is it weak, moderate, or strong?
5. Examine the univariate output. Do all the dependent variables demonstrate
significant differences?
6. Write a results section for this study.
