TABLE 2.19 REGRESSIONS
FOR CONNECTEDNESS SERIES  NATIONAL SAMPLE
We asked our respondents for the following information
about six "occasions": "On a scale of 1 to 10, where 1 means you felt no
connection to the past and 10 means you felt a strong connection to the
past, please tell me how connected to the past you felt on the following."
The table below reports the OLS (ordinary least squares) Coefficients for
regressions of the connectedness to the past on the six occasions under
the table. These regressions are a statistical method for measuring the
extent to which one or more variables (e.g., demographic characteristics
like age or gender) affect another variable (e.g., connectedness to the
past on a given occassion). The standard errors for the coefficients are
in parentheses.
