Statistics 7 | Psychology homework help

 

Part 2:

 

1.     An industrial/organizational psychologist is interested in whether people in different professions prefer different operating systems on their computers. After doing some preliminary research, she chooses three different professions and the three main operating systems available. She interviews 20 people from each profession and asks them to choose their preferred operating system. The results are listed below. Perform a chi square test of independence (using an SPSS two-way contingency table analysis) to determine whether the proportions of operating system preferences differ across the professions. Use the weighted cases method.

 

The steps will be the same as the ones you have been practicing in Part 1 of the assignment—the only difference is that you are now responsible for creating the data file as well. Remember to name and define your variables under the “Variable View,” then return to the “Data View” to enter the data.
