PART I (Transform->Compute Variable)There are times when we will want

 

  • PART I (Transform->Compute Variable)There are times when we will want to compute a new variable based on the data we have. Create a new variable using the STATES10 data
    • Click on Transform->Compute Variable
    • Your new variable (‘Target Variable’) will be called MURDPCT.
    • Use the following formula to generate the new variable: (CRS37 / CRS33)*100
    • This formula takes the Murders 2008 divides by Violent Crimes 2008 and then multiplies it by 100
    • Present the answer to the following questions in APA format (no figure needed)
      • What is the mean of this new variable?
      • Which state has the highest percentage of violent crimes that are murders? What is the mean percentage of of violent crimes that are murders in this state?
      • Which state has the lowest percentage of violent crimes that are murders? What is the mean percentage of of violent crimes that are murders in this state?
    • PART II (Transform->Recode into Different Variables)Sometimes it is helpful to collapse categories in a variable into a more limited number of categories.Using the GSS08 data
    • Transform->Recode into Different Variables
    • Click on Degree and move it to the middle.
    • The ‘Output Variable’ will be ‘Named DEGREE3 with the ‘Label’ Highest Degree Earned 3 Categories. 
    • Click ‘Change’
    • Click on ‘Old and New Values’
    • Code those individuals who earned less than a high school degree (‘Old Value’ = 0 into ‘New Value’ = 1)
    • Click ‘Add’
    • Code those who have a high school or junior college degree (‘Old Value->’Range‘ = 1-2 into ‘New Value = 2)
    • Click ‘Add’
    • Code those who have a bachelor degree or graduate degree ( ‘Old Value->’Range‘ = 3-4 into ‘New Value = 3)
    • Click ‘Add’
    • Click ‘Continue’
    • Click ‘OK’
    • In Variable view, assign values to the new variable (1 = less than a high school degree; 2 = high school or junior college degree; 3 = bachelor or graduate degree)
    • Run Analyze->Descriptive Statistics->Frequencies
    • Run Frequency function for DEGREE3
    • Run Graph -> Chart Builder (generate bar graph showing frequencies of new variable)
    • Present the output in APA format (in text and bar graph). Please make sure to include the following in your response:
      • What percentage of respondents did not finish high school?
      • What percentage of respondents earned a high school or junior college degree?
      • What percentage of respondents earned a bachelors or graduate degree?
