# 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)
• Code those who have a high school or junior college degree (‘Old Value->’Range‘ = 1-2 into ‘New Value = 2)
• Code those who have a bachelor degree or graduate degree ( ‘Old Value->’Range‘ = 3-4 into ‘New Value = 3)
• 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?
