# Conduct some bivariate analyses and present the results

Conduct some bivariate analyses and present the results. Below are detailed instructions:
1. Open the facility_2017.xlsx, add a new sheet, and rename the new sheet. “Bivariate analysis”.
2. Identify a categorical variable with two levels (e.g., alzunit). Sort the data using this categorical variable. Identify a continuous dependent variable.
3. Insert a new worksheet titled “t test”. Copy and paste the values of the dependent variables into two columns grouped by the categorical variable.
4. Use the Excel add-in for the equal variance t test, and conduct a t test for the categorical variable and one continuous dependent variable.
5. Identify a continuous independent variable (e.g., totbeds). Sort the data using this variable. Insert a new column right to this variable. Use a nested =IF() function to fill up this new column with values that divide the nursing homes into three groups (e.g., high, medium, low). Add a name of this new variable to the first row in this new column. Identify a continuous dependent variable.
6. Insert a new worksheet titled “ANOVA”. Copy and paste the values of the dependent variables into three columns grouped by the newly created categorical variable.
7. Use the ANOVA: Single-Factor data analysis add-in to carry out the analysis of variance.
8. Create a report in a Word document and address the following:
o In a section titled “Methods”, briefly describe the bivariate analyses you use (t test and ANOVA).
o In a section titled “Results”, copy and paste the t test and ANOVA tables. Explain what conclusions you might draw from the tests about any possible relationships between the two variables.
