Calculation of an association between a characteristic

  15 credits or more/ semester Less than 15 credits/ semester Total
Work 24 hours or less per week 11 15 26
Work More than 24 hours per week 10 20 30
  N=56

 

 

  • Taking 15 or more credits among those who work 24 hours/week or less:
    • 11/26*100= 42.3%
  • Taking 15 or more credits among those who work more than 24 hours/week:
    • 10/30*100= 33.3%
  • RR=
    • 3/33.3= 1.3
  • Interpretation: Students who are working 24 hours or less per week are 1.3 times more likely to take 15 credits or more in a semester than those who work more than 24 hours per week.
  • The reason I have decided to choose this association because I wanted to see if those who work more hours are taking more credits or not, and I knew they would not. For instance, I am taking 21 credits this semester and I stopped my volunteering hours because I was not able to do them together and succeed. Moreover, students will not be able to manage between more hours and more credits together, because of the matter of time management. Therefore, my results showed exactly what I have expected.
