This dataset is designed for teaching Pearson’s chi-squared test. The dataset is a subset of data derived from the 2012 American National Election Study (ANES), and the example shows how to test whether views on same-sex marriage differ in a statistically significant way between men and women. The dataset file is accompanied by a teaching guide, a student guide, and a how-to guide for SPSS.
In this tab you will find guides on using this dataset. The Teaching Guide is designed for faculty who are teaching research methods and statistics, with suggestions on how to use the dataset in lab exercises, in homework assignments and as exam questions. The Student Guide introduces the method for students, and can be used in teaching to provide students with an introductory overview of the method or test. The How-to Guide shows how to perform the technique or test using data analysis software.

The ANES 2012 Time Series is a dual-mode survey (face-to-face and Internet) with two independent samples. Cases selected for the face-to-face sample could not be interviewed on the Internet, and cases selected for the Internet survey could not be interviewed in person. The Internet sample was drawn from panel members of GfK Knowledge Networks. The Face-to-face sample used an address-based, stratified, multi-stage cluster sample in 125 census tracts. The face-to-face sample also featured oversamples of blacks and Hispanics.
Original dataset includes 3 weight variables:
for face-to-face sample analysis alone
for Internet sample analysis alone
for combined sample
