The Problem
Universal Exports is an import / export company that employs thousands of people Australia wide. Management recently hired an external research firm, Real Consulting, to look in to a range of human resource issues including employee performance, hiring practice, remuneration and satisfaction.
Real Consulting randomly selected 150 employees across divisions. As part of the process the employees were asked to carry out a series of three tests based around (a) firm procedures, (b) general knowledge and (c) a general intelligence test. All employees were then awarded a score out of 225 with each component being out of 75. To measure satisfaction, all employees were also asked about their desire to stay or if they were actively looking elsewhere (Intention to Leave). To ensure a degree of consistency across the sample all employees selected held at least a Bachelors Degree.
Information on the 150 employees is given in the file Research Report Universal Exports.xlsx. The table below provides an example (it is not the full data set) of the results for the first 10 employees along with other data collected in a business assignment help.
Variables included are:
· Income – Employees annual income ($000)
· GPA – GPA standardised to a result out of 4.0 to account for different grading systems.
· Part A – Score on the Firm Procedures component of the test (Mark out of 75)
· Part C – Score on the General Intelligence test (Mark out of 75)
· Test Total Result – sum of the three parts (Mark out of 225)
· Age – Employee age in years
· Years Employed – Years employed at company
· Leaving Intention – Employees were asked if they were actively seeking alternative employment
· Higher Degree – (1 for Masters or Above, 0 for Bachelors only)
· Gender – (1 for Male and 0 for Female)
· Work Division (Operations, Admin, Marketing, Finance, Senior)
As an employee of Real Consulting you have been asked to conduct and initial analysis of the data and provide a report to Universal Exports on the a range of questions covering employee performance, remuneration (income) and satisfaction.
Incomes
The first question of interest is how employees are being paid and whether or not that reflects the correct attributes of the employees. In particular there is substantial information available that female employees tend to be paid less than their male counterparts.
1. Using descriptive statistics and appropriate graphical methods compare income levels of male and female employees. Use the full range of descriptive statistics to tell highlight the relative income levels and distribution and point out any interesting or unusual features.
(7 Marks)
2. Conduct a test at a 5% level of significance to determine if there is any difference in income levels between male and female employees. Are the results of this test consistent with what you identified in Q1? How would the result differ if you wanted to specifically test if the average income of males was higher than that of females?
(7 Marks)
3. Conduct a regression analysis where you regress income on gender? How do the results of that regression compare to what you found in Q1 and 2?
(4 Marks)
4. Undertake a full regression analysis to determine which factors affect income. In doing so make sure you:
· Adjust your data where necessary to convert qualitative variables to dummy variables. If you are unsure how to do this for the Divisions variable ask your tutor.
· Conduct a correlation analysis to determine which variables to include in the first instance
· Run regression on all variables you have identified
· Conduct all tests necessary to identify the strength and validity of the model
· Identify any changes to the variables to be included (e.g. should any be removed)
· Run the final model, testing it fully and interpreting all results
(17 Marks)
Satisfaction
5. Real consulting has indicated there may be an issue with employee satisfaction if more than 10% of employees are considering leaving. Conduct a test at the 1% level of significace to determine if more than 10% (0.1) of all employees have expressed an intention to leave.
(5 Marks)
6. Construct a contingency table comparing leaving intention with work division. Does this data indicate there may be problems with any division in particular – i.e. is leaving intention independent of work division? Which division(s) appear to be most at risk.
(5 Marks)
Work Performance
7. Construct a confidence interval for the average score on Test A for Males and a separate confidence interval for the average performance of females. Compare the two intervals and indicate what this means for whether or not there is any difference in performance between the two.
(5 Marks)
8. Consider the two variables GPA and Test Results A. Draw a graph and calculate an appropriate statistic to determine if there is a strong relationship between the two. What does this say about using GPA when hiring in relation to how well candidates may understand work practices at Universal Exports.
(4 Marks)

Critical Reading: Deconstructing a Non-Scholarly Text Worksheet
Locate 1 short, opinion- or position-based article or work, preferably written by only 1 author. In addition:
· Please do not select a peer-reviewed, scholarly source for this assignment.
· Ensure the selected article or work is from a popular publication (e.g., newswork editorials, blogs, political pundit websites, or educational or health care activist organization websites).
Engage in a systematic process of closely reading the article or work. Attempt to derive a sense of meaning from the writing that is not an explicit argument the author is making, but is empirically grounded in the text. Examples of this sense of meaning might include:
· Uncovering a political or ideological position based on the historical nature of examples used by the author
· Determining an author’s value system around a particular issue by analyzing hierarchical structures in their work’s organization

Advanced Macroeconomics: Coursework
Consider a deterministic DGE model for an economy populated by a large number N of identical individuals, each receiving an endowment of income in every period. The preferences of the representative individual are described by the intertemporal utility function , with In every period the representative individual faces the budget constraint . The initial asset holding is given by All variables and parameters have standard interpretation.
Question 1
Let ; when and when ; with . Derive the equilibrium allocation and provide its economic interpretation. Explain how the equilibrium allocation changes if instead when and when . Ref: https://profsonly.com/tag/management-assignment-help/
Question 2
Suppose that the financial market is contemplating the introduction of three alternative types of financial sanction. The first is: for . The second is: for . The third is to set the rate of interest to for [Hint: in the third case you can assume that utility is logarithmic and , so that ]. Provide an economic interpretation of each type of sanction. Explain how the two equilibrium allocations derived in question 1 would change under each type of financial sanction.
Question 3
Suppose now that instead of all individuals in the economy being identical, there are two types in equal proportion. These two types differ only for their lifetime income allocation. The first type receives when and when . The second type receives when . As above . Derive the equilibrium and provide its economic interpretation. Consider now how fiscal policy can be used to achieve income equality among the two types in each period t and what are the macroeconomic implications of this type of policy [Hint: To this end you can assume that the government uses a proportional tax on income and derive the ‘optimal’ tax rate].
