Statistics Project 4


For this project, you will be asked to observe, and critically reflect upon, patterns in social data in a representative sample of United States citizens (using data from the General Social Survey). First, you will perform a cross-tabulation of two ordinal/nominal variables. The second test, an ANOVA, will have you examine a causal relationship between an ordinal independent variable and an interval-ratio dependent variable. And for your third test, you will examine the relationship between two interval-ratio variables. This project covers learning goals and objectives #1, 2, 3, and 4 as listed in the syllabus.
