Basic Descriptive Statistics Homework

You may complete this assignment in pairs. If you do, please indicate who you worked with.

You will need to use the Lifestyles data.sav SPSS file to answer the following questions (uploaded to Canvas).

For all applicable answers, please provide the statistical evidence supporting your answer. Copied and pasted tables from SPSS are acceptable.

1. Is there any evidence that participants have provided inaccurate data or incomplete data? If so, remove these participants from the data set before answering any of the below questions and indicate below which participants were removed and why.

  1. Note: The ‘Finished’ column indicates whether or not participants completed the survey, and the AttentionCheck item asked participants to choose ‘3’.

Participants20, 36,39,45,46,48,58,70, and 87 were all taken out due to the fact they did not answer “3” to the Attention Check question. Also, row 38-47 were taken out because they were incomplete.

2. What do consumers like most about eating healthily and what the least? What about exercising?

The evidence showed that when it comes to eating healthy people care most about the Taste and care least about the morality of eating healthy.

Then when it comes to it comes to exercising people care most about how it makes you healthier and how it makes you feel, while the consumers care the least about the Time Commitment exercising takes.

You know this by looking at the means of what people answered for each question and comparing them to each other.

3. Which form of exercise do consumers participate in the most?

  1. Note: you will need to code the open-ended responses to the OtherCardio, OtherExercise, and SomethingElse categories to answer this question

It appears that people think the best way to exercise is by either weightlifting or running, both came in with 48 votes.

4. Pick one of the two: Are men or women more likely to lead an overall healthy lifestyle? OR Are men or women more likely to read labels?

I ended up comparing the means between Men and Women for the question “How healthy of a lifestyle would you say you lead?” I found that they are very close in means and you could easily say that they could equally live a healthy lifestyle even though men beat women by .16.
