Hello, I am looking for someone to write an article on Mid-Term 1. It needs to be at least 250 words. Q Complete the following tasks for the three hypotheses below: Identify the independent (IV) and dependent (DV) variables. What are the levels of measurement for each of the IVs and DVs and why. Each response is worth 10 points (30 points total)
a.  .The number of years a convicted defendant serves in prison depends in part on whether (s)he was convicted for a personal or property crime.
b. . Attitudes toward the death penalty are more favorable among conservatives than among liberals.
c. . .Children who are victims of abuse are more likely to commit delinquent offenses than those who are victims of all other forms of abuse.
Dependent Variables (DV)
a. Number of Years
b. Reason for Conviction (Personal or Property Crime)
c. Effects of abuse
Independent Variables (IV)
a. Community Groups (Ethnicity)
b. Attitudes towards Death Penalty
c. Age of Children
e. Child abuse
f. Forms of Abuse
Levels of Measurement
The levels of measurement can be explained as the number or data collected with the support of assigned variables. These levels are employed for getting the accuracy of the measurement. The levels are nominal, ordinal and metric. The number of years, effects of abuse, community groups, age of children and forms of abuse come in the metric category of level, as they are countable and many in number. However, reasons of conviction, attitudes towards death penalty, gender, child abuse come under ordinal level because of less categories or numbers. The levels are assigned to variables on the basis of their being countable.
