Now that you have uploaded the GSS dataset into your SPSS and have taken a look at the Codebook, you are going to create and post a frequency table of your variables. Complete the following steps:
Give your forum title a unique label specific to your study/variables. Post a brief explanation of your topic which includes a bit of information about your variables (label them clearly). Include frequency tables and histograms for each of your variables. Explain this data in no more than 5 sentences (each variable).
To create a frequency table in SPSS
1. Open SPSS and open your GSS data file
2. Click Analyze
3. Click Descriptive Statistics
4. Click Frequencies
5. click open Statistics
6. make sure that mean, median, mode, standards deviation, and variance are chosen and click Continue
7. Choose the variable that you want to make a frequency table of and click the arrow (this will move it into the right ‘Variable’ box)
8. Click OK
Presenting your data in graphic form is also important when conducting quantitative research. Based on what you have learned from the reading and the weekly lesson, create a graphic representation of your data. Directions for each can be found in your textbook. You can also follow the following steps, but remember to format the chart accordingly (labels, black and white color, etc.).
To Create a Chart
1. Follow steps 1-4 above (without worrying about the Statistics).
2. Click Charts
3. Click choice of format
4. Click OK
5. Continue with steps 5-6
Copy all of the frequency tables and charts by copy and pasting them into a document (PDF, MS Word) and attaching.
You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.
Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.
Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.
The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
