A researcher was given the assignment of predicting which of three actions would be taken by the 280 employees in the Desota plant that was going to be sold to its employees. The alternatives were to:
a. Take severance pay and leave the company.
b. Stay with the new company and give up severance pay.
c. Take a transfer to the plant in Chicago.
The researcher gathered data on employee opinions, inspected personnel files and then did a discriminant analysis. Later, when the results were in, she found the results listed below.
Actual Decision A B C
A 80 5 12
B 14 60 14
C 10 15 70
How successful was the researcher's analysis?
Did you see my response to your FIRST post? I still do not understand why there are 3 numbers for each option. IS it because 80 = PRO, 5 = CON, 12 = UNDECIDED?
