Following are brief descriptions of how researchers measured a variable. For each situation, determine the level of measurement of the variable.

**a. Race or ethnicity.** Check all that apply:

__________ Black

__________ White

__________ Hispanic

__________ Asian or Pacific Islander

__________ Native American

__________ Other (Please specify: __________)

**b. Honesty.** Subjects were observed as they passed by a spot where an apparently lost wallet was lying. The wallet contained money and complete identification. Subjects were classified into one of the following categories:

__________ Returned the wallet with money

__________ Returned the wallet but kept the money

__________ Did not return the wallet

**c. Social class.** What was your family situation when you were 16 years old?

__________ Very well off compared to other families

__________ About average

__________ Not so well off

**d. Education.** How many years of schooling have

you completed? __________

**e. Racial integration on campus.** Students were observed during lunchtime at the cafeteria for a month. The number of students sitting with students of other races was counted for each meal period.

**f. Number of children.** How many children have

you ever had? __________

**g. Student seating patterns in classrooms.** On the first day of class, instructors noted where each student sat. Seating patterns were remeasured every two weeks until the end of the semester. Each student was classified as:

__________ Same seat as at last measurement

__________ Adjacent seat

__________ Different seat, not adjacent

__________ Absent

**h. Physicians per capita.** The number of physicians was counted in each of 50 cities. The researchers used population data to compute the number of physicians per capita.

**i. Physical attractiveness.** A panel of ten judges rated each of 50 photos of a mixed-race sample of males and females for physical attractiveness on a scale from 0 to 20, with 20 being the highest score.

**j. Number of accidents.** The number of traffic accidents per year for each of 20 intersections was recorded. Also, each accident was rated as:

__________ Minor damage, no injuries

__________ Moderate damage, personal injury requiring hospitalization

__________ Severe damage and injury
