H 1 = Females have better perception of body image by models in magazines more than males. p-value = 0.370 For this hypothesis we will be using group statistics and independent samples test to measure the mean difference between group 1 (Female) and group 2(Male) to individually find the perception of body image by models in magazines. Since the p-value is greater than 5% we do not reject the null hypothesis, this shows there is no statistically significant difference between males and females perceptions of body image portrayed by models in magazines. Furthermore, the mean difference between group 1 and group 2 is -0.08775. Hence, hypothesis H 1 can be rejected and we can accept H 0 . Results: Hypothesis 3 H 0 = There is no relationship between wanting to undergo plastic surgery and country that a person lives in. H 1 = There is a relationship between wanting to undergo plastic surgery and country that a person lives in.

A chi-squared test was used to test the association between wanting to undergo plastic surgery and the country a person lives in. The results show that there was a moderate relationship between wanting to undergo plastic surgery and country a person lives in since the Cramer’s V value is at 0.411. This concludes that H 0 = There is no relationship between wanting to undergo plastic surgery and country that a person lives in will be rejected. Results: Hypothesis 4 H 0 = There is no mean difference between perceptions that magazines place pressure on an individual to look good and perceptions that magazines present reliable information. H 1 = Participants have a stronger perceptions that magazines placing pressure on an individual to look good as compared to magazines to present reliable information p-value = 0.030 Paired samples t-test was conducted to find out if there is any mean difference between the two variables. Since the p-value is below 5% we reject the null hypothesis at 5% significance level, this shows there is a statistically significant difference between perceptions magazines placed on an individual to look good and perceptions that magazines present reliable information. The data suggests that participants have a stronger perceptions that magazines placing pressure on an individual (mean = 3.0509) compared to magazine having reliable information (mean = 2.8727), (3.0509 -2.8727 = -0.17818 < 1)Thus, H 1 -Participants have a stronger perceptions that magazines often placing pressure on an individual to look good as compared to magazines to present reliable information is supported. Results: Hypothesis 5 H 0 = There is no mean difference in the level of pressure placed on magazine readers to question their appearance between countries.

H 1 = There is a significant difference in the level of pressure placed on magazine readers to question their appearance between countries. The One-way ANOVA test was carried out to find out if there is a difference in the level of pressure placed on magazine readers to question their appearance between countries.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
