2 WEEK 2 DISCUSSION Week 2 Discussion: A GEM of A Study 1. What are the independent and dependent variables in this study? Independent variables in the study included items that were consistent and not changed. The independent variables in this study included the age groups targeted, time spent interviewing individuals, survey questions, number of individuals interviewed and participating in surveys, national research teams used to collect data, key informants, countries from which data was collected, and length of questionnaires and content of the questionnaires. Another independent variable in this study was gender of study participants. Project directors suggested facilitating the availability of resources to women to participate in the entrepreneurial process, but were women included in the study? If so, was a sufficient number of female participants included as to accurately represent the female entrepreneurial population? It is essential to effectively provide proof of conclusions (Mitra & Golder, 2006). Therefore, it the specific suggestions were made based on gender, gender should have been part of the data analyzed and discussed. The dependent variables in this study included entrepreneurial activity, perception and attitude towards entrepreneurship, motivation, business start-up rates, income levels, and employment levels. 2. What are some of the intervening, extraneous, and moderating variables that the study attempted to control with its 10-nation design? Intervening variables that the study attempted to control with its 10-nation design included the attitudes and feelings that individuals in each country had about entrepreneurship.
