-route framework if the independent variables are uncorrelated. Thus, previous research with correlation results related to fantasy motivation were sought. Dwyer, Shapiro, and Drayer ( 2011 ) utilized both factors on traditional, season-long fantasy baseball participants and uncovered a segment through cluster

by examining the correlation between index scores and PDGA ratings. As discussed, a PDGA rating is a direct measure of disc-golf behavior. If people’s online disc-golf activity is a valid measure of their involvement in the sport, there should be a positive correlation between the index scores and

effectively represented the intended latent organizational capacity and performance outcome constructs and to reduce the number of items in order to optimize scale length in the survey instrument. Items were initially evaluated based on their corrected item-scale correlation and variance. Items that were not

, associations between the RRS and the job satisfaction scale ( Tsui et al., 1992 ) were analyzed using Pearson’s correlation coefficients. This scale was selected for a comparative measure because it is theoretically related to retention. The job satisfaction scale consisted of six questions about how satisfied

To answer RQ2 and to assess concurrent validity, a series of multiple linear regressions were conducted, where the attitudinal and behavioral

the general development of societies ( Vanwynsberghe, 2015 ). In consequence, the data used and the methods applied (e.g., cross-sectional data, primary data, correlations) have often been inadequate to measure elite sport’s true impact ( Frick & Wicker, 2016 ). It is fundamental to recognize that

To explore the nature of fan relationships within the Supporter Club, we ran a series of QAP correlations for both the dyadic hypotheses and mixed dyadic–monadic hypotheses. The QAP

H2 proposed that player identification would be positively related to people’s response intensity in all four conditions; four correlations were used

Relationships between factors were determined by testing the correlations of the constructs (factors), within the measurement models

Football is a global game, and the editors and contributors of this handbook put great emphasis on the framework of diversification, globalization, and marketing to expand the sport and individual clubs. Chapter 1 discusses the importance of related versus unrelated diversification in correlation
