What are the 4 primary scales of measurement?

Nominal, Ratio, Interval, ordinal


What is a nominal scale?

uses numbers as labels for classifying objects. I.e. social security numbers, gender, or football jersey numbers. Mutually exclusive and collectively exhaustive. Find mode (nonmetric scale)


What is an ordinal scale?

Determines rank but not the differences between the ranks. I.e. preference ranking. Find median (nonmetric scale)


What is an interval scale?

Differences between objects can be compared. I.e. attitudes, opinions, index numbers. Find range, mean, stan. dev. (metric scale)


What is a ratio scale?

zero point is fixed and values can be computed. I.e. age, income, sales. Find geometric mean. (metric scale)


See page 247 for comparative scale examples

See page 247 for comparative scale examples


what is a continuous rating scale?

place a mark on a continuous line. i.e. reaction to a TV commercial


What are the itemized rating scales?

likert, semantic differential, and stapel scale.


What is a likert scale?

Degree of agreement on a 1(strongly disagree) to 5 (strongly agree) scale. i.e. measure attitude


What is a semantic differential scale?

seven point scale with bipolar labels. i.e. brand, product, company images


What is a stapel scale?

unipolar 10 point scale. 5 to +5 without a zero. I.e. measure attitude and images.


Examples of these scales starting on 262

Examples of these scales starting on 262


What are the decision factors for itemized rating scales?

number of categories, balanced vs. unbalanced, odd vs. even # of categories, forced vs. nonforced, verbal description, physical form


what are the guidelines for # of categories?

should be b/w 5  9 categories


what are the guidelines for balanced v. unbalanced

scale should be balanced


what is the guideline for odd v. even # of categories?

odd is suggested if a a respondents' answers can be neutral


what is the guideline for forced v. nonforced?

no opinion  then nonforced


what is the guideline for verbal description?

label all or many of the scale categories


what is the guideline for physical form?

try several options and select best


What is an unstructured question?

openended question that is best used as 1st questions


What are some aspects of structured question?

Multiple choice, dichotomous (2 choices), and a scale. Easy to code and analyze


How do you determine the wording of questions?

define the issue, use simple words, use unambiguous words, avoiding leading


What is a sampling frame?

representation of the elements of the target population. List of directions for identifying the target population


What are the elements of selecting a sample technique?

non probability sampling and probability sampling.


What is non probability sampling?

relies on judgment of the researcher rather than chance with selection procdeure


What is probability sampling?

each element of the population has a fixed chance of being selected


How do you code openended answers?

similar responses are grouped and category codes are developed


What are the options for missing responses?

substitute a neutral value, casewise deletion, pairwise deletion


What is casewise deletion?

respondents with missing responses are discarded from analysis. i.e. 20% did not answer income, all will be excluded from income analysis


What is pairwise deletion?

still keep some of the responses that will help other areas, not omitted totally like casewise.


What are the steps to hypothesis testing?

1. formulate null and alternative
2. select appropriate test 3. collect date and test statistic 4. Reject or do not reject the null 5. Draw marketing conclusion pg.439!!! 

What is cross tabulation?

describes 2 or more categories simultaneously where the categories of 1 variable are cross classified with the categories of one more other variables.


What is chisquare?

Determines the statistical significance in a cross tabulation. Does an association exist between the variables.


hypothesis testing related to association?

values of homes are related to buyer's income


hypothesis testing related to differences?

people living in the suburbs have higher income than people living downtown


When is it appropriate to use a ttest?

used when standard deviation is unknown and sample is small. Can be conducted on the means of one or two samples of observations. WE USE INDEPENDENT T TESTS


When is it appropriate to use a ftest?

when it is not known whether the 2 populations have equal variances.


ANOVA?

examine the differences among means of 2 or more populations


Roles of dependent and independent variables in ANOVA?

Must have a metric dependent variable. Also one or more independent variables that are nonmetric.


What is the pearson correlation?

denoted by r, summarizes the strength and direction of association between 2 metric variables. Determine whether a linear or straight line relationship exists between X & Y
