6.A researcher completes a study examining the relationship between exposure to cold, smoking status and Raynaud phenomenon (RP) and finds both independent variables are significantly related to RP. In fact, she reports that 76% of the variation in the occurrence of RP can be explained by these two variables. You know this means: a. adding the second variable to the model produced significant results b. the model that includes both variables has an odd ratio that is approximately 0.76 c. the model that includes both variables has an R-square value of approximately 0.76 d. the residuals in this model are very low resultingin a significant finding for both variables

ANOVA c. chi-square d. t-test for independent variable

10.A study examining if administering a medication A and participating in regular aerobic exercise is associated with improvements in patient anxiety post myocardial infarction. In the final regression model the R square value is 0.27.

12. Correlation coefficients are used to?a.look for a difference between multiple variables b. find a relationship between multiple groups c. find a relationship between variables in one sample d. look for a difference among multiple samples
13. a study examining gulf war syndrome reports a significant odds ratio of 4.5 associated with exposure to depleted uranium in returning veterans you know this means: a.there is a significant association between being a veteran and being exposed to depleted uranium b. veterans who were not exposed to depleted uranium are 95% more likley to be healthy compared to those who were exposed c. veterans who were exposedto depleted uranium are more likely to have gulf war syndrome than those who were not d. the chance of getting sick after an exposure to depleted uranium is 4.5%
14.If researchers add independent variables to a regression model which are significant value of the R- sguare will? a not change b. unable to determine c. decrease d. increase
15. If the risk ratio is 0.63 this means that a. the exposure may have a protective effect b. there is no relationship c. the exposure was a risk factor d. 63% of people in the population will be exposed and not get the disease

18. There are 100 workers in a plant during a chemical spill and 68 of the 70 who are exposed to the toxic chemicals develop significant respiratory distress. There are 30 unexposed workers and 27 of them do not develop respiratory distress. What is the relative risk of developing respiratory distress in the exposed group compared to the unexposed group of workers? a 97.1 b. 97.1% c. 9,71% d. cannot be determined with the given information

Use attack rates to determine what was the most likely source of the illness. a. too much alcohol b. crab c. spinach d. eating the spinach and the crab
20. What test is used to fond a relationship or difference in an outcome or dependent variable measured at the nominal or ordinal level? a.t-test b. ANOVA c. repeat measures ANOVA d. chi-square
21, when is the Chi- square test not ideal? ato compare independent samples of ratio or interval level data b. to compare independent samples or ordinal or nominal level c. when all cells within 2×2 tables have an observed value greater than or equal to 10 d. A and B

24.When studying the relationship between ankle-brachial blood pressure index and peripheral vascular disease the researchers have a significant R square. They then add a second independent variable of a pain scale. The R square in the model that includes both independent variables is significant but the R square change is not.
