SPSS Exercises

  1. Review the output you have generated in previous SPSS and/or online analysis exercises using the MIDUS2011 data set and involving analyses of life satisfaction. Select the distributions, statistics, and crosstabs that you believe provide a coherent and interesting picture of respondents’ overall life satisfaction levels and the characteristics/variables associated or correlated with it. Prepare these data displays using the graphic techniques presented in this chapter and number them (Figure 1, Figure 2, etc.).
  2. Discuss your findings.
