- Create a research question using the General Social Survey that can be answered by multiple regression.
- What is your research question?
- What is the null hypothesis for your question?
- What research design would align with this question?
- What dependent variable was used and how is it measured?
- What independent variable is used and how is it measured?
- What other variables were added to the multiple regression models as controls?
- What is the justification for adding the variables?
- If you found significance, what is the strength of the effect?
- Explain your results for a lay audience, explain what the answer to your research question.
Testing for Multiple Regression
- Using the SPSS software, open the Afrobarometer dataset or the High School Longitudinal Study dataset (whichever you choose)
- Based on the dataset you chose, construct a research question that can be answered with a multiple regression analysis.
- Once you perform your multiple regression analysis, copy and paste your output into your Word document.
Write a 1- to 2-page analysis of your multiple regression results for each research question. In your analysis, display the data for the output. Based on your results, provide an explanation of what the implications of social change might be.
Use proper APA format, citations, and referencing for your analysis, research question, and display of output.
Multiple Regression in Practice (You can use any article on this)
Write a 2- to 3-page critique of the article. In your critique, include responses to the following:
- Why did the authors use multiple regression?
- Do you think it’s the most appropriate choice? Why or why not?
- Did the authors display the data?
- Do the results stand alone? Why or why not?
Use proper APA format, citations, and referencing.
