Bivariate correlations were utilized to determine if there was a relationship between the
responses among and between ethnicities. Pearson correlation (r) was used to measure the
strength of the relationship. Linear regression was utilized when analyzing the independent
variables and the relationship they had with the dependent variable. Descriptive statistics and
linear regression were both utilized to create a profile of the population and allowed for
inferences or predictions to be made about the population (Hinkle et al., 2003). If a strong
relationship was determined to exist then it was possible to predict others' responses in that
category. The alpha level utilized for this research was .05. The degrees of freedom were the
sum of the responses in both groups minus 2.
