There are 2 data sets below, you will conduct 2 analysis and provide 2 write-up (short; 1-2 pages
per). It is your job to choose which statistic to use and conduct your analysis. As you know by
now from your readings, the type of test you choose to assess statistical difference will depend
on the number of categories within each independent variable.
Thus, selection of a test (e.g. t-test or ANOVA) will be up to you. However, note that your data
will dictate what test you will run. Be creative and thorough in your analysis. Because this is
two projects really, I will expect 2 independent write-ups for both data sets. Each write-up will
be a bit shorter to minimize length of course
Project A: The purpose of this project for you is to assess the differences between Southerners
and Non-Southerners on Church Attendance per Month. Accordingly, pretend that you will use a
survey to assess the association between these variables among students. Is there a significant
difference among those who were born and raised in the South and those outside of the South?
Project: Your second project will be to assess attitudes toward same-sex marriages of nonpolitician republicans and democrats Note: 0=disagree with same-sex marriages and 10 = Agree
with same-sex marriages. Again, pretend that you are conducting this project on campus. Is
there a significant difference among self-defined republicans, democrats and independents?
