We cannot calculate separate regression analyses; we need the model to examine the interaction of all the IVs. Use the following table provides the data and the SPSS tables are provided for your analysis.

Dependent Variable is Hours Worked (hrs1)

Model 1 Model 2

Education (educ) Unstandardized Coefficient 1.256 Unstandardized Coefficient .954

Significance Level .000 Significance Level .000

Age (age) Unstandardized Coefficient -.439

Significance Level .000

R-Square = .024 Adjusted R-Square = .118
