SEE THE LAB ASSIGNMENT 5 GUIDELINE FOR MORE DETAILED INSTRUCTION.
This form is for you to provide the answers.
NOTE: All output table that you copy from SPSS must be legible. We strongly recommend copy as image (see SPSS guide on how to copy tables as images).

The file that you submit on Moodle should be named as:
“Your last name Initial of your first name Lab Assignment 3.docx”
E.g., “Smith J Lab Assignment 3.docx”

Part I: Hypothesis

  1. Qualitative research in the 1990s shows that mothers report higher work and family conflict than fathers. I want to test if this is true today.

*Long H0:

*Short H1:

*Short H0:

  1. Various factors are thought to contribute to juvenile delinquency. I want to test if the influence of family environment or peer groups has a larger effect on juvenile delinquency.

*Long H1:

*Long H0:

*Short H1:

*Short H0:

  1. Cohabitation (non-married partners living together) is increasingly becoming a common household situation. Are couples who cohabit prior to marriage more likely to get a divorce than married couples who do not cohabit?

Step 2:
State your research (H1) and null (H0) hypotheses for your own research questions in both long and short forms.

Part II: Bivariate Analysis

Step 1:
After you recode ATTEND into rATTEND and PARTNRS5 into rPARTNRS5, copy and paste your SPSS outputs here.

  • Frequency Table for ATTEND:
  • Frequency Table for rATTEND:
  • Frequency Table for PARTNRS5:
  • Frequency Table for rPARTNRS5:

Step 2:

  • Copy-and-Paste your cross-tabulation table here:
  • Copy-and-Paste your output table for chi-square test here:

Step 3:

  • Write your interpretation of the result of the bivariate analysis here:

Part III: Bivariate Analysis 2

Step 1:

  • Write your (1) research hypothesis and (1) null hypothesis here:

Step 2:
Provide the coding schemes for your independent and dependent variables.

  • The recoding scheme for your dependent variable (add rows as needed):
    Name of Original Variable Name of New variable

How you will recode
Original variable values Old to New New variable values

  • The recoding scheme for your independent variable (add rows as needed):
    Name of Original Variable Name of New variable

How you will recode
Original variable values Old to New New variable values

Step 3:
After you recode your dependent and independent variables, copy and paste your SPSS outputs.

  • Frequency Table for your original independent variable:
  • Frequency Table for your new independent variable:
  • Frequency Table for your original dependent variable:
  • Frequency Table for your new dependent variable:

Step 4:

  • Copy-and-Paste your cross-tabulation table here:
  • Copy-and-Paste your output table for chi-square test here:

Step 5:

  • Write your interpretation of the result of the bivariate analysis here:
