SUMMARY

This assignment is to be done in groups of two. Group members are required to work equally on the Assignment and to proof read it before handing it in. This assignment is worth 10% of your final grade. To complete this Assignment, you must use the GSS 2016 database that is on the CRIM 2103 folder on the M:\Drive. This data set can be found at the following pathway:

You must use different variables for each section and different variables than those included in the lab book chapters or those reviewed in class during lab sessions.

Your group will hand in one copy of each of the following documents, each with a cover page that includes both student names and numbers:

  • SPSS Output Document- see table below
  • Final Assignment 2 Report- see table below
SPSS Output DocumentFinal Assignment 2 Report
This document is a simple print out (directly from SPSS) of all the SPSS output that you performed for Assignment 2. It should be organized as per the required ‘sections’ and include all highlighted requirements, as specified for each section below. This will allow me to evaluate the accuracy of your Final Assignment 2 Report according to the original statistics you produced.This should be completed in MS Word. This represents your ‘final and polished’ report. It is meant to represent a report that you would hand into a Supervisor if you were an analyst responsible for quantitative data analysis. Please note that this Final Assignment 2 Report should NOT INCLUDE ANY DIRECT SPSS OUTPUT,. You are required to extract the pertinent statistics/information from the SPSS output and insert those statistics/information into a table you create in MS Word (called a ‘summary table’). Below each ‘summary table’, you will provide a written summary interpreting the statistics to your reader.

  • B.Recoded Variable – Ratio (p. 108-111)
  • Pick a nominal/ordinal variable that has a sufficient number of attributes/responses to collapse categories and create a recoded variable
  • Run a frequency distribution of the original variable
  • Recode your variable as you see fit
  • Provide a table showing a list of the old values of the variable on the left and the new recoded values on the right- see page. 107 (bottom of page) of your Lab Book for guidance
  • Run a frequency distribution of the recoded variable
  • Create a summary table of the frequency distribution for the recoded variable (to be explained in class)
  • Provide a written summary in full sentences interpreting the patterns/trends you discovered from running the frequency distribution of the new recoded variable
  • Pick a ratio variable that has sufficient number of attributes/responses to collapse categories and create a recoded variable
  • Run a frequency distribution of the original variable
  • Recode your variable as you see fit
  • Provide a table showing a list of the old values of the variable on the left and the new recoded values on the right- see page. 108 (bottom of page) of your Lab Book for guidance
  • Run a frequency distribution of the recoded variable
  • Create a summary table of the frequency distribution for the recoded variable (to be explained in class)
  • Provide a written summary in full sentences interpreting the patterns/trends you discovered from running the frequency distribution of the new recoded variable
