Question: Oishi and Shigehiro 2010 report that people who move from

Oishi and Shigehiro (2010) report that people who move from home to home frequently as children tend to have lower than average levels of well-being as adults. To further examine this relationship, a psychologist obtains a sample of n = 12 young adults who each experienced = or more different homes before they were 16 years old. These participants were given a standardized well-being questionnaire for which the general population has an average score of ยต = 40. The well-being scores for this sample are as follows:
38, 37, 41, 35, 42, 40, 33, 33, 36, 38, 32, 39.
a. On the basis of this sample, is well-being for frequent movers significantly different from wellbeing in the general population? Use a two-tailed test with a = .05.
b. Compute the estimated Cohen's d to measure the size of the difference.
c. Write a sentence showing how the outcome of the hypothesis test and the measure of effect size would appear in a research report.
