Review for Test #3
The practice problems at the end of each chapter related to the subjects below are a good way to
practice.
MAKING A CROSSTAB
Be able to construct a bivariate cross tab Table if given raw data. For instance, if I give you a list of 20
people, and their answers to two questions that measure dependent and independent variables, you
should be able to construct a table that shows that data properly with all the appropriate totals. You
should be able to do this in frequencies, and you should be able to do it with percentages. You should
know where to put the independent variable and the dependent variable.
You should be able to read the table and make a general summary statement about the relationship
between the two variables simply based on comparing the appropriate percentages you calculated.
For instance:
I give you a list of individuals responses to Gender (M/F?) and College Graduate (Y/N?)
Person
Gender
College Grad?
