Marginal Mean and Variance of Transformed Response Variables
Data collected in the departmental and faculty surveys were used to answer various research questions in this report. Statistical analyses consisted essentially of fitting various types of regression models, including multiple linear regression, logistic regression, and Poisson regression models depending on the distributional assumptions that were appropriate for each response variable of interest. In some cases, the response variable was transformed so that the assumption of normality for the response in the transformed scale was plausible. Marginal or least-squares means were calculated (sometimes in the transformed scale) for effects of interest in the models.
