hi i'm first-year graduate student.
I got the result of my analysis in which NES is included.
I wonder about the meaning of positive score/negative score of NES.
I know that NES negative score means weaker relative activity in a sample compared with the background population, and positive score means greater relative activity .
I ask you that
if i got negative NES, that means nonrespondent have weaker relative activity than respondent group.
if i change first column(nonres) with second column(res),
negative NES -> respondent group have weaker relative activity than nonrespondent group??
In a nut shell, can i interpret the result depending on design matrix??
<designmatrix> here is my desigmatrix of my 5 samples. nonres res 0 1 1 0 1 0 1 0 0 1
