Problem 3: Crosstabs, Reporting Results

ASSIGNMENT:

Problem 3: Crosstabs, Reporting Results:  Based on the crosstabs on the propositions: RELITEN ƒ SEX and RELITEN ƒ DEGREE for 2012 GSS Data, complete the following table to summarize your findings. 

Next: From your review of the “Rules of Writing” for this module and, from the guidance from the video lecture and power point presentation, write-up your propositions (crosstabs) on RELITEN for 2012 GSS Data.  Your write-up should be between 300 and 400 words and, be sure to discuss issues of reliability and validity in attempting to measure “religious strength of affiliation,” as you point the direction for future research. 

Percentage Difference Rule:

  • Less than 8%- If the percentage difference between two groups is less than 8%- the percentage are “too close to call” and being a member of one group or the other does not really predict or explain your position on a particular survey question. In this case then, if the percentage difference is less than 8%, accept the null hypothesis that there no relationship.
  • Between 8 and 20%- If the percentage difference between two groups is somewhere between 8 and 20%, then being a member of one group over the other may help predict or explain your position on a particular survey question and we could say (depending on the percentage difference) that the affect is relatively weak, moderate, or strong (closer to 20% the stronger the relationship).
  • Greater than 20%- If the percentage difference between two groups is greater than 20 percent then being a member of one group over the other can really help predict or explain your position on a particular survey question and we could say (depending on the percentages) that the affects is relatively strong or very strong (depending on the percentage difference)
