Description

Shawnee State University resides in an area that has many overlapping identities. The area is part of the Ohio River Valley and is an Appalachian county. These are the two identities that were examined for this project and focused on how people followed these identities. This presentation will focus on a statistical analysis of Appalachian and Ohio River Valley identities. In the presentation, various predictors will be examined for statistical significance in predicting Appalachian and Ohio River Valley identities. Various methods of statistical analysis including cross tables, logistic regression and general linear models were used for the analysis of the predictors and yielded very interesting results. From these results we have a clearer understanding of the factors that leads to someone identifying as Appalachian or Ohio River Valley.
