Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to analyse the relationship between ordinal/dichotomous independent variables and an ordinal dependent variable. The relationship between farm size categories and the responses for the satisfaction level of the income females get from their farm has been looked into. The hypothesis is that the lower the farm size, lower is the satisfaction level of the income females get from their farm against the reference population. We will start with some data manipulation, followed by exploratory analyses and then a linear hierarchical regression model will be used. The paper has been divided into four parts- (1 introduction, 2. Empirical Method and Estimation, 3. The Model and 4. Conclusion and Discussion) & concluded that the predictor is statistically significant so, coefficients are interpretable.
