Beauty: Beauty data set

Description Value

Description

This data set is from a study where researchers were interested in whether a lecturers' attractiveness affected their course evaluation. This is a cleaned version of the data set and contains the following variables:

evaluation

the questionnaire result

tenured

does the lecturer have tenure; 1 == Yes. In R, this value is continuous

minority

does the lecturer come from an ethnic minority (in the USA)

age

the lecturers' age

gender

a factor: Female or Male

students

number of students in the class

beauty

each of the lecturers' pictures was rated by six undergraduate students: three women and three men. The raters were told to use a 10 (highest) to 1 rating scale, to concentrate on the physiognomy of the professor in the picture, to make their ratings independent of age, and to keep 5 in mind as an average. The scores were then normalised.
