Data Analysis

The three chosen variables are “tlifesat,” “tslfest” and “agegp5,” which represent the total life satisfaction, total self-esteem, and age-5-groups. The first two variables, that is, the variables that represent the total life satisfaction and the one that represents total self-esteem are measured in interval scale. From the look of the data, the figures might have been read from a scale and recorded in order. The third variable showing the age group is a normal variable. The reason is, different numbers have been assigned to represent the age groups. For example, 1 represent age group of between age 18 to 24, 2 represent age 25 to 32, 3 represent 33 to 40 years, 4 represent 41 to 49, and 5 represent ages above 50. A descriptive summary of the variables is given in Table 1 below.
