4. Baseline Specification and Estimation Methodology and Analysis

In scientific research, statistical data analysis of collected samples, the study is considered, Is an important step because the researcher, at this stage, the final result will reach.

Using the same method will be concluded data is been analysis and hypothesis testing, and ultimately the final report done. In this chapter, information about companies in the period 2005-2011 were analyzed to test the hypothesis is to investigate the relationship between variables.

The data were calculated and analyzed using Excel software and (Eviews 6) and (Spss) were analyzed.

Data analysis included descriptive statistics, mean, standard deviation, mean, median, standard deviation, skewness and is persion indices of skewness and elongation as begun. These measurements have been performed separately and in total. Next, test he normality of the dependent variable evaluate using the test Kolmogorov-Smirnov test was performed. Analysis models for analyzing panel are used. The presence or absence of effects models (fixed or random) of the models and the best model is estimated.

Inferences are based on significance level or P-value or Significant Level, thus unlikely that any value or significance level of the test less than 05/0 zero is rejected at 95% confidence.
