|TABLE 4.18 REGRESSIONS
FOR TRUSTWORTHINESS SERIES -- MEXICAN AMERICAN SAMPLE
We asked our respondents for the following information
about seven "places where people might get information about the past:"
"Please tell (us) how trustworthy you think each is as a source of information
about the past using a 1 to 10 scale, where 1 means not at all trustworthy
and 10 means very trustworthy." The table below reports the OLS (ordinary
least squares) Coefficients for regressions of "trustworthiness" of the
seven sources of information about the past listed 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., trustworthiness of sources of information
about the past). The standard errors for the coefficients are in parentheses.
