A sample of gender and verdict in a rape
FINAL LAB â€“ LAB 8 â€“ NON-PARAMETRIC STATISTICS USING THE CHI SQUARE
For your Lab 8 you will be analyzing nominal data. Given this you will be using a non-parametric test to analyze the data. Specifically, you will be doing a chi square test. This is done by going into the descriptive statistics and going to the crosstabs.
First, you will need to bring in the data into SPSS. The data is supplied below and you need to simply put the numbers in a new data file. This will not be difficult since there are only 2 columns to enter.
Data for Lab 6
Next, you need to go into the descriptive statistics under the analyze menu. Click on crosstabs and then enter one variable in the row and one variable in the column. Click on options and make sure to then click on the Chi Square statistic. You may also choose to enter the percentages for rows only.
Finally, you will be asked to interpret the output. Given that this is a rape trial, you should be able to add some of your own input on the matter to the discussion.
This is the correct way to write this statistic in your write up:
ï£ï€²ï€¨ï€±ï€¬ï€µï€¹ï€©ï€½ï€ ï€¶ï€®ï€•ï€°ï€¬ï€ p = .01
For this final lab you are required to put a poster presentation together that will demonstrate your ability to put an entire study together. I have provided you with an example poster so you can take out the example sections and fill it in with yours. This poster would be something you could submit to a conference if you actually collected the data and analyzed it.
