and Our Sample Slide

## 3

For the SOLO analysis: you will calculate the mean and standard deviation for the age of your sample. You will also calculate each participant's score on every scale of your survey. Depending on your project, this might involve calculating a mean. In other cases, you might need to calculate a total. If you forgot how to do this, watch lab lecture 1. Once this is done, you will find the mean score for all participants - for every scale. To find out exactly what and how to calculate these, click on your project below. If you forgot how to calculate the mean and standard deviation for a variable using SPSS, watch lab lecture 4.

â€‹

Once you have found the mean and standard deviation for age and the mean for every scale on your survey, copy and paste this SPSS output into a word doc or pdf. Hi-light the means (and the one standard deviation) and upload this to the solo analysis for team assignment 3.

In the lab: you will finish the "our sample" slide that will become part of your end of semester presentation. What you need to include on this slide depends on your project. See below.

NOTE: Need help finding the frequencies for each category of a variable? Check out this short video!

After the "our sample" slide is finished, include another slide that has all the relevant SPSS output pasted onto it... hi-light the numbers that you used on the "our sample" slide

Save the pptx as a pdf and submit the pdf to canvas (only the team leader for this assignment submits)

CLIMATE CHANGE: report the number of males, females, and "missing or other". Next, use a frequency bar graph to report the number of participants in each category of the university status variable. Include a category for "not reported" (if applicable). Use Excel to create a colorful and clear graph (do not forget to label the x and y axis).

DISCRIMINATION AGAINST IMMIGRANTS IN THE US: report the number of males, females, and "missing or other". Next, use a frequency bar graph to report the number of participants in each category of the USA status variable. Include a category for "not reported" (if applicable). Use Excel to create a colorful and clear graph (do not forget to label the x and y axis).

DISCRIMINATION - EVERYWHERE EXCEPT MY BACKYARD: report the number of people in each category of "sex": males, females, and "missing or other". Next, use a frequency bar graph to report the number of participants in each category of the Religion variable. Include a category for "not reported" (if applicable). Use Excel to create a colorful and clear graph (do not forget to label the x and y axis).

GUN VIOLENCE IN THE U.S.: report the number of males, females, and "missing or other". Next, use a frequency bar graph to report the number of participants in each category of the Politics variable. Include a category for "not reported" (if applicable). Use Excel to create a colorful and clear graph (do not forget to label the x and y axis).

TRANSGENDER DISCRIMINATION: report the number of people in each category of "sex": males, females, and "missing or other". Next, use a frequency bar graph to report the number of participants in each category of the "gender identity" variable. Include a category for "not reported" (if applicable). Use Excel to create a colorful and clear graph (do not forget to label the x and y axis).
