Solution

1. Were the body image scores signiﬁcantly different for women versus men? Provide a rationale for your answer.

The scores for women under body image ranging from zero to 100 were significantly higher with (73.1+- 16.93) compared to the men’s score (60.2 +- 16.98) as it resulted under the study results.

1. Assuming that the distribution of Mental Health scores for men is normal, where are 99% of the men’s mental health scores around the mean in this distribution? Round your answer to two decimal places.

57.1% of the mean represents the men’s mental health scores for 99%

1. Assuming that the distribution of scores for Physical Functioning in women is normal, where are 99% of the women’s scores around the mean in this distribution? Round your answer to two decimal places.

A mean of 65.2% represents 99% of the women’s physical functioning scores

1. Assuming that the distribution of scores is normal, 99% of HIV-positive body image scores around the mean were between what two values? Round your answer to two decimal places.

Women’s body image scores ranging from 0-100 were found to be significantly higher with (73.1+- 17.0) compared to men’s scores that were (60.2+- 17.0). Moreover, HIV patients were found to be slightly higher than for both men and women scores with (mean=68, STD dev=17).

1. Assuming that the distribution of scores for Role Functioning is normal, 99% of the men’s scores around the mean were between what values? Round your answer to two decimal places.

1. What are some of the limitations of this study that decrease the potential for generalizing the ﬁndings to the target population?

Many limitations exist in this study an aspect that reduced the potential for making general remarks. For instance, the number of men in the study was more than women. Suppose there was an even number for the two genders, a better outcome would be found as there would be gender equality. Moreover, the age range aimed between 37-42 years an aspect that overlooked the subjects lying outside the age bracket. More comprehensive results would have achieved if the target age bracket could have been expanded. Again, the study focused on the patients with a certain health condition (those receiving healthcare) an aspect that overlooked the other group that was not receiving healthcare. Considering the two groups would have captured more data that would result to more accurate results.
