What are the variables?

Level of Measurement? Appropriate numerical summary?

Two methods: 1. ‘Explore’ option 2. Split file, then ‘Frequencies’ option We will use the 2nd method.

Method 2

Split the file by Gender Output for males and females will be in one table

Separate output tables for males and females File must be sorted!

Categorical Variable

Method 2

Split the file by Gender

The file is sorted All females are listed first, then all males

Method 2

Statistics Frequency tables Charts • Bar • Pie • Histogram

Now get stats for Annual Income • Use ‘Frequencies’ • Output will be split by Gender Method 2

Representing data Numerically Scale Variable e.g., Gross Annual Income

Select any of these Descriptives

Method 2

Representing data Numerically

Split File Option to Compare Groups Output for males and females is in one table

Method 2

Recall the Split File output options Output for males and females will be in one table

Separate output tables for males and females

Method 2

Representing data Numerically

Split File Option to Organise Output by Groups Separate output table for males and females

Method 2

Remember to go back and â€˜Analyse all cases, do not create groupsâ€™
