Categorical Data Analysis

I’m trying to study for my Statistics course and I need some help to understand this question.

1. Categorical Data Analysis

Whether in a scholarly or practitioner setting, good research and data analysis should have the benefit of peer feedback. For this Discussion, you will post your response to the hypothesis test, along with the results. Be sure and remember that the goal is to obtain constructive feedback to improve the research and its interpretation, so please view this as an opportunity to learn from one another.

To prepare for this Discussion:

  • Review Chapters 10 and 11 of the Frankfort-Nachmias & Leon-Guerrero course text and the media program found in this week’s Learning Resources related to bivariate categorical tests.
  • Create a research question using the General Social Survey dataset that can be answered using categorical analysis.

Use SPSS to answer the research question. Post your response to the following:

  1. What is your research question?
  2. What is the null hypothesis for your question?
  3. What research design would align with this question?
  4. What dependent variable was used and how is it measured?
  5. What independent variable is used and how is it measured?
  6. If you found significance, what is the strength of the effect?
  7. Explain your results for a lay audience and further explain what the answer is to your research question.

Be sure to support your Main Post and Response Post with reference to the week’s Learning Resources and other scholarly evidence in APA Style.



2. Testing for Bivariate Categorical Analysis

Answer a social research question using categorical statistical tools. As you begin the Assignment, be sure and pay close attention to the assumptions of the test. Specifically, make sure the variables are categorical level variables.

For this Assignment, you will consider three different scenarios. Each of these scenarios include a research question. You will examine each scenario, choose a categorical data analysis and run a sample test.

To prepare for this Assignment:

  • Review Chapters 10 and 11 of the Frankfort-Nachmias & Leon-Guerrero course text and the media program found in this week’s Learning Resources related to bivariate categorical tests.
  • Using the SPSS software, open the Afrobarometer dataset found in this week’s Learning Resources.
  • Next, review the Chi Square Scenarios found in this week’s Learning Resources and consider each research scenario for this Assignment.
  • Based on the dataset you chose and for each research scenario provided, using the SPSS software, choose a categorical data analysis and run a sample test.
  • Once you perform your categorical data analysis, review Chapter 11 of the Wagner text to understand how to copy and paste your output into your Word document.

For this Assignment:

Write a 1- to 2-paragraph analysis of your categorical data results for each research scenario. In your analysis, display the data for the output. Based on your results, provide an explanation of what the implications of social change might be.

Use proper APA format, citations, and referencing for your analysis, research question, and display of output.

Chi Square Scenarios

1. Results of your literature review conclude that trust in the police is an integral

part of any democracy. You wish to test whether a relationship between trust in

the police and presence of democracy (measured with dichotomous variable)

exists in Africa. Using Afrobarometer 2015, please provide: a 1–2 APA style

paragraph statement that furnishes an answer to this question, note the relevant

statistics, comment on meaningfulness, and include your relevant SPSS output.

2. Following up on your previous analysis, you now wish to determine whether a

relationship exists between citizen trust in police and whether respondents reside

in rural, urban or semi-urban settings? Using Afrobarometer 2015, please

provide: a 1–2 APA style paragraph statement that furnishes an answer to this

question, note the relevant statistics, comment on meaningfulness, and include

your relevant SPSS output. In addition, please comment on what could be

influencing the results you obtained.

3. Is there a relationship between perceptions of current economic conditions and

extent of a democracy? Using Afrobarometer 2015, please provide: a 1–2 APA

style paragraph statement that furnishes an answer to this question, note the

relevant statistics, comment on meaningfulness, and include your relevant SPSS

output. In addition, please comment on what could be influencing the results you

obtained.
