### What will be the predicted satisfaction score

Assignment Help Applied Statistics
##### Reference no: EM135088

In a regression analysis, a nurse researcher found a correlation of .82 between pain relief scores and satisfaction with nursing care.  She also calculated the following for her regression analysis:

Pain Relief (x):   Mean = 58           sd = 3.9

Satisfaction (y): Mean = 42           sd = 4.4

slope = 1.56

y intercept = - 3.53

Q1.  What will be the predicted satisfaction score (expressed as a point estimate) for a patient with a pain relief score of 62?

Y = bX + a

Y=1.56(62)+-3.53

=93.19

Q2.  What is the standard error of estimate when predicting satisfaction from knowledge of pain relief score?

Sy.x  =sdY  √ 1 - r2

=4.4+  1-.82^2==.3276 or .33

Q3.  What would be the interval estimate for satisfaction for the patient in problem 16?

Items 19-21:   A nurse researcher is investigating the effect of timing of standard pain control interventions on severity of pain in adolescents with sickle-cell disease.  She establishes three treatment protocols:  1) initiation of pain control immediately upon the presence of prodromal sign (an "aura" signaling the imminent onset of pain); 2) initiation of pain control one hour after the onset of pain; and 3) initiation of pain control only at the points where non-steroidal anti-inflammatories and guided imagery are no longer effective in keeping pain bearable.  She conducted a one-way ANOVA to analyze her data and the following table summarizes her findings:

Source  df            SS          MSS F   p

Among 2              75536.2                37768.1 5.159     <.05

Within   27                     197660.3     7320.8

Total      29          273196.5

On the basis of these data alone, she drew the following conclusions.  For each conclusion, indicate whether you feel the conclusion is justified or unjustified.

Q4.  Severity of pain is influenced by the timing of pain interventions in sickle-cell crises.

Q5 Immediate intervention is better than either slightly delayed intervention or initiation at crisis stage.

Q6.  She has more than 99% confidence in her conclusion that severity of pain is influenced by timing.

Items 22-23 relate to the following study results:

Study A                Study B

r = .64    r = .77

df = 18  df = 121

Q7.  In using the data from study A to make predictions, what percent of the time would you expect predictions to be exactly correct?

Q8.  Which study would have the smallest margin of error in predicting one variable from knowledge of the other?

Items 24 and 25 relate to the following SPSS output.  A researcher is interested in characteristics of HIV+ and HIV- adolescents interviewed 166 young adults about their experiences during adolescence.  He wished to know, among other things, if there were significant differences in the ages at which HIV+ and HIV- young adults became sexually active.  The following is the printout of this analysis:
