Complete a 6-8 page research report in which you form a hypothesis and then conduct a statistical analysis on the data in order to determine whether the hypothesis is accurate or not.
Introduction
Note: The assessments in this course build upon each other, so you are strongly encouraged to complete them in sequence.
When we examine the relationships between variables where two or more variables are characterized by nominal or categorical groups, we may use a chi-square test of significance. The chi-square test examines the statistical significance of the differences between observed and expected frequency count in each cell of a table. The chi-square test tells you only whether a statistical significance of difference exists between groups on some other categorical variable (neither strength nor direction).
Throughout the course, you been exploring various concepts and building your skills in statistical analysis. In this assessment, you will discuss the steps taken to build a research study, which includes a literature review, hypothesis, research methods, data analysis, and your results.
Overview
Note: The assessments in this course build upon each other, so you are strongly encouraged to complete them in sequence.
This course exercises many skills related to understanding statistical procedures and analysis. For this assessment, you have the opportunity to incorporate many of the skills discussed in this course into a research report. You will use the GSS Explorer website, form a hypothesis, and then conduct a statistical analysis on the data in order to determine whether the hypothesis is accurate or not. In addition, you will record the results and make conclusions based on the hypothesis you originally designed. Having the ability to connect all the concepts to apply research and real variables ensures you understand the various methods of statistical analysis.
Preparation
You will use data from the GSS Data Explorer website, which contains archival data. Archival data is pre-existing data that has been collected by another individual or organization and is available to be analyzed, enabling you to draw new conclusions about the data. The website requires you sign up for an account. If you need help with sign-up, watch GSS Data Explorer Instructions, which walks you through the process of creating an account with the website (free of charge), finding your variables for the research report, and extracting the data to an Excel spreadsheet.
https://gssdataexplorer.norc.org/
Decide Your Variables
Begin by selecting two variables of your choice from the following list of variables—it’s recommended that you choose one from List A and one from list B. Note that “r” represents the participant.
List A
Labor force status (wrkstat).
Marital status (marital).
R’s highest degree (degree).
Have gun in home (owngun).
How often does r read newspaper (news).
Www hours per week (wwwhr).
List B
People helpful or looking out for selves (helpful).
People fair or try to take advantage (fair).
Can people be trusted (trust).
Days of poor mental health past 30 days (mntlhlth).
Told have depression (depress).
Happy or unhappy with life today (hapunhap).
R’s rating of life overall now from 0–10 (lifenow).
R’s quality of life (quallife).
R’s mental health, mood, and ability to think (hlthmntl).
In the past 7 days, how often r has been bothered by emotional problems (emoprobs).
How often r was unhappy or depressed in past 4 weeks (unhappy).
If you want to report demographic information on your participants (optional):
Respondent’s sex (sex).
Respondent’s race (race).
Extract Your Data
When you decide on your variables, extract your data from the GSS Data Explorer website. If you need help, watch GSS Data Explorer Instructions. Be sure to name your project for this course.
After you’ve extracted your data, design a research topic involving the two selected variables. For example, if you select “condition of health” and “How often r attends religious services,” you may want to research how religion impacts an individual’s health and wellness.

paper should review selected literature (at least 5 peer-reviewed empirical research articles) on your previously approved topic. You should follow an overall structure where you broadly introduce the topic, then review your literature, and finally conclude with a synthesis of the information you presented. When writing about the articles you should be focusing on the FINDINGS of the study not the RATIONALE. What that means is you should be citing information from the results/discussion, as opposed to the introduction. Everything should be put into your own words as well (quoting is not allowed!).
