A total of 42 comparisons plus 42 recurring comparisons were made. Twelve of the 42 were for main effects and 30 were interactions. Of the 12 main effects, 2 were statistically significant at the .05 level. The 2 significant main effects were for income and the dependent variable internal and education and the dependent variable chance. The results indicated the following for main effects: (1) participants in the middle income group ($20,000 - $49,000) represented a higher mean internal score than those at either end of the income scale; (2) the participants with some college and college degrees (the two highest education levels) reported higher mean chance scores than those in the lowest educational group. Of the 30 interactions, 3 were statistically significant at the .05 level. The statistically significant interactions were the following: (1) gender and income for the dependent variable chance; (2) education and income for the dependent variable chance; and (3) age and income for the dependent variable chance.
