This dataset is designed for teaching cross-tabulation. The dataset is a subset of data derived from the 2012 General Social Survey (GSS), and the example presents a cross-tabulation between the views people hold on the death penalty and whether or not they view people in general as trustworthy. 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.
