H1: There is a relationship between familiarity with GHP (or NSBI or ERDT or ACOA) and the expectations to introduce a new product or service, or to increase sales, or to hire additional staff, or to invest in new facilities/ equipment, or to enter new markets within the next twelve months.
H2: The proportion of businesses that expect to introduce a new product or service, or to increase sales, or to hire additional staff, or to invest in new facilities/equipment, or to enter new markets within the next twelve months is higher for the group of businesses that are familiar with GHP (or NSBI, or ERDT, or ACOA).
We were then able to test the null hypothesis that there is no association between familiarity with GHP (NSBI, ERDT, ACOA) and the expectations to introduce a new product or service, to increase sales, to hire additional staff, to invest in new facilities or equipment and to enter new markets within the next twelve months.
GHP, NSBI, ERDT, ACOA) and the rows representing respectively the expectations to introduce a new product or service, to increase sales, to hire additional staff, to invest in new facilities or equipment and to enter new markets within twelve months.
Despite this variability, the overall findings were not congruent with the expectation that university students would evidence liberal attitudes toward most of the sexual practices assessed by the NSBI. While some items may not assess "liberality," it is noteworthy that, among those who assessed a male actor, 26 of the 33 items were perceived to be abnormal by at least 25% of participants (15 items were perceived as abnormal by at least 50%).
Contrary to our prediction that men and women would differ on the NSBI, the multivariate effect for sex of the participant was not statistically significant, Wilks' lambda = .60, F (31, 67) = 1.46, p = ns.
However, as indicated previously by the non-significant multivariate effect for participant's sex and contrary to our prediction, male participants (M = 108.19, SD = 15.94) and female participants (M= 106.76, SD = 14.34) did not differ in their scores on the NSBI, t (100) = .47, p = ns.
No statistically significant differences on NSBI scores were noted between male participants who had (M = 105.24, SD = 13.09) or had not (M = 110.84, SD = 18.05) engaged in vaginal intercourse, t (34) = -1.06, p = ns, d = -.35.
