Description

I used SPSS binary logistic regression analysis to answer the research question: Does gender predict if a person feels like they have the freedom to say what they think? Using

gender of respondent

as the dependent variable and

freedom to say what you think

as the independent variable. The output is attached, is the predictive relationship statistically significant, how could the results be described, what does the odds ratio show? What is the reported mean of Q1 (Age)?
