Summary and interpretation of data

Help me study for my Statistics class. I’m stuck and don’t understand.

  • Describe the study sample.
  • Compare risk factors in men and women.
  • What characteristics are associated with BMI?
  • Who is most likely to have prevalent coronary heart disease?
  • Describe the Data collection Methods used in the study
  • Please Provide a Summary of the data analysis as a whole . Summary should include pertinent information of all the questions above. This summary should not exceed 300 words.

* Mean (Standard deviation) or n (%)

3.Use simple and multivariable linear regression analysis to complete the following table relating the characteristics listed to BMI as a continuous variable. Before conducting the analysis, be sure that all participants have complete data on all analysis variables. If participants are excluded due to missing data, the numbers excluded should be reported. Then, describe how each characteristic is related to BMI. Are crude and multivariable effects similar? What might explain or account for any differences?

Outcome Variable: BMI, kg/m2

4. Test if there are significant differences in the following risk factors between persons with and without prevalent coronary heart disease (CHD). Summarize the statistical results in the table below and then compare risk factors in persons with and without prevalent CHD. Be sure to indicate what statistical tests were used in the footnote to the table and in a brief summary of a paragraph or less.
