SPSS 9 Assignment-ANOVAGeneral Instructions:In this assignment, we will be examining 2 One-Way ANOVAs and interpreting the results.As withprevious assignments, the Aspelmeier and Pierce text does a wonderful job of explaining how to actually run the tests inChapter 8.Follow their instructions for interpreting the SPSS output results I have given you for this assignment.Assignment Instructions:As you probably remember for SPSS 2 Assignment, researchers were interested in how females rated their closest femalefriend on levels of satisfaction, intimacy, emotional support, loyalty, and tangible help.To do this, 100 femaleparticipants completed measures of:1.Basic demographics:a.age in months (Variable name “sage”)b.ethnicity (Variable name “sethnic”)c.year in college (Variable name “college”)d.where they live now (Variable name “whlive”)e.the family composition of the house they grow up in (Variable name “house”)2.The number of female friends they currently have (Variable name “fnum”)3.The length of the friendship with their closest female friend (Variable name “flength”)4.Satisfactionwith their closest female friendship (Varialbe name “Satisfaction”)The following variables were computed in SPSS 2 Assignment and will be utilized in rest of the SPSS assignment.5.Friendship quality with their closest female friend:a.Intimacy(Variable name “fgill2”, “fgill7”, “fgill9”, “fgill16”, “fgill18”, “fgill21”, “fgill25”, and “fgill30”)b.Emotional Support(Variable name “fgill3”, “fgill5”, “fgill11”, “fgill13”, “fgill19”, “fgill23”, “fgill27”, and“fgill32”)c.Loyalty(Variable name “fgill4”, “fgill6”, “fgill12”, “fgill14”, “fgill20”, “fgill22”, “fgill28”, and “fgill29”)d.Tangible Help (Variable name “fgill1”, “fgill8”, “fgill10”, “fgill15”, “fgill17”, “fgill24”, “fgill26”, and “fgill31”)The researchers want to compare the mean rating of Emotional Support of the groups of where students currently live(1=Dorm, 2=Apartment or House with Peers or Alone, 3=Parents).Also, researchersthink that the family composition ofthe house people grow up in will influence the amount of loyalty females will reported with their closest female friends.As we learned from the text and the PPTs, we know these research situations require the use of the ANOVA.Here arethe researchers’ hypotheses:1.The researchers think that students who live at home will report different levels of emotional support from theirclosest female friends than those students who live either in the dorms or in an apartment or house with peersor alone.2.The researchers also believe that females will report differing levels of loyalty with their closest female friendsbased on the family composition of the house in which they grew up.
