X (Ses) Y (Intel) Y = ? + ?* X + ? (model I) Some social scientists say? predictor/independent response/dependent X (Ses) Y (Intel) X = ? + ?*Y + ? (model II) Others argue? predictor/independent response/dependent Statisticians say? (e.g., Hays 1994; Snedecor & Cochran 1989) Y = ? + ?* X + ? (I) X = ? + ?* Y + ? (II) arbitrary {

Which ?model? so that go? D-R solution Dodge & Rousson. 2001. Am. Stat. 55:51?54. model-specific inequalities check what?s observed model can be determined What great help so that researchers! My research objective the D-R method 1) requires complex computations; 2) not available in stat packages goal: so that implement in SAS easy in consideration of researchers so that apply D-R

Look for:

Inequalities: 4 statistics ( variables: X, Y ) skewness coefficients ?x ?y symmetric or skewed higher order corr coefficients ?12 ?21 relatedness of X in addition to Y Strict criteria Model I (Y dependent on X): ?y2 ? ?122 ? ?212 ? ?x2 Model II (X dependent on Y): ?y2 ? ?122 ? ?212 ? ?x2 Loose criteria Model I: ?y2 ? ?x2 ?122 ? ?212 or Model II: ?y2 ? ?x2 ?122 ? ?212 *potential conflict

Implementing in SAS 6-page long & macro-based 2 data files: 1) list of variables 2) actual data specify path in SAS run in addition to output: suggested model criteria used assumptions checked A demonstration Hays (1994) Statistics 5th ed. origins of gender stereotyping in young girls 4 variables: sports interest scores (MomInt, DadInt, GirlInt) PE teacher evaluation on girl?s athleticism (PeEval) GirlInt DadInt MomInt PeEval GirlInt DadInt MomInt PeEval 24 23 25 8 30 32 30 13 25 25 25 15 . . . . haysVarList.prn haysData.prn 2 data files (in Excel)
