3. Two hundred sixty-nine adults were enrolled in a lifestyle change workshop (Diehl, 1995). Individual data on a number of demographic and clinical variables were collected. The table below shows the Pearson correlation coefficients.


Pearson Correlation Coefficients between several variables (n=269)

Pearson Correlation Age Height Weight Pulse Current Stress
Age 1.00 -.155* -.144* -.069 .211*
Height   1.00 .539 -.166 .000
Weight     1.00 .070 -.118
Pulse       1.00 .016
Current Stress         1.00

* The correlation is significant at the 0.05 level.


· What correct conclusion would an informed reader come to from the data presented in the table above? Determine whether each statement is true or false


a. There is a significant negative association between age and height

True False

b. There is a significant positive association between pulse and height

True False

c. There appears to be no significant association between age and stress level

True False

d. Approximately 54% of the variation in weight is explained by height

True False
