# SPSS Exercises

SPSS:

1. Repeat the crosstabulation from one of your hypotheses in Chapter 2 SPSS exercises. However, this time we are going to “filter” our cases by sex and first look specifically at this association among men. To do this:
1. At the top ribbon, select DATA > SELECT CASES
2. Click the “If” button
1. Select the RA1PRSEX variable in the left box, and then click the transfer arrow button to move it to the right box. Click the "=" button and then click the "1" button to select only the male participants
3. Click on Analyze/Descriptive Statistics/Crosstabs
4. Highlight RA1SR1 and click on the arrow so that it moves into the Rows box; highlight your independent variable and click on the arrow to move it into the Columns box.
5. Click on Cells, click off Counts-Observed, and click on Percentages-Column.
6. Click Continue and then OK.
2. Repeat the steps above but this time filter for female (RA1PRSEX > = > 2)
3. Compare the results from Questions 1 and 2. How did the findings differ depending on the sex of participants, if at all?
