2. Comparing socioeconomic index by gender, the null hypothesis of homogeneity of variance is obtained; because the Levene’s test is high (.6130), therefore equal variances are assumed.

Based on the high significance of the t-test (.467) and numbers of the 95% confidence interval containing the value zero (0), the conclusion would indicate no significant difference in the mean between genders.
