chapter  7
Constructing a framework for regression analysis
Pages 9

The interactive mechanism of attributes of a student, who receives cooperative education and then fi nds employment upon graduation, was described by the path diagram in Figure 5-1 of Chapter 5 . It was also pointed out in the chapter that a theoretical framework known as path analysis can be built, by which the causal links among the attributes are statistically tested. This chapter introduces a set of hypotheses based on the causal relationships in the path diagram and the econometric framework to test these hypotheses.
