Your task is to write a report that answers all of the research questions below using the supplied data set. The data set you are required to analyse has been emailed to your QUT student email address. Note that your dataset may be different to the data set supplied to other students. The details about the study generating the data, and the data coding manual are provided at the end of this document.
The research questions you are required to answer are:
1. Is there an association between having a low (below 15) pre-flood psychological score and living alone If so, what this the nature of the association
2. Are age, social support score and family functioning score predictors of the pre-flood psychological score Which of these three variables explains most of the variation in preflood psychological score How does the inclusion of place of residence as a predictor change the fitted model Using the minimum model, which contains only the significant variables, what is the predicted pre-flood psychological score for a 35-year old male living in a rural area with a social support score of 40 and a family functioning score of 22.
3. Is there a difference in the post-flood psychological score between men according to the level of impact of the 2011 flood If there is a difference, which groups are different.
4. Is the mean change in psychological score between the pre and post-flood survey the same for men who experienced no or limited flood impact compared to men who experienced moderate/major flood impact.
