Earl Babbie exercise using the mean and range using bivarate tables

Using the MEAN & RANGE to describe the distribution of responses to the question, "How often have you used the library as a place to study.." FOR ALL RESPONDENTS

Next CONSTRUCT 2 BIVARIATE TABLES. Each should be TITLED, PERCENTAGE, & INCLUDE THE NUMBER OF CASES ON WHICH THE PERCENTAGES ARE BASED. Be sure to PLACE YOUR IV IN THE COLUMNS & YOUR DV IN THE ROWS**. INTERPRET THE RESULTS*

VARIABLES:
Are you a graduate or undergraduate student? 1 YES 2 NO.
Are you Female or Male? 1 Yes 2 NO.
How often have you used the library as a place to study during the last semester?

FREQUENCIES TABLE 1
GRAD 1 not at all 243 UNDERGRAD 1 not at all 105
GRAD 2 1-3 times 87 UNDERGRAD 2 1 -3 Times 89
GRAD 3 Monthly 24 UNDERGRAD 3 Monthly 69
GRAD 4 Weekly 15 UNDERGRAD 4 Weekly 92

FREQUENCIES TABLE 2
Male 1 not at all 58 Female 1 not at all 290
Male 2 1 -3 times 33 Female 2 1 -3 times 140
Male 3 Monthly 21 Female 3 Monthly 72
Male 4 Weekly 28 female 4 Weekly 77

Earl Babbie exercise using the MEAN and RANGE using BIVARIATE TABLES
Using the MEAN & RANGE to describe the distribution of responses to the question, "How often have you used the library as a place to study.." FOR ALL RESPONDENTS
Analysis. We assume that there are 4 months and 16 weeks in one semester.
There are FOUR groups of RESPONDENTS: graduate students; undergraduate students; males and females. For each of their distribution of responses, the mean and range are
a) graduate students.
There are 243+87+24+15=369 graduate students in total. So,
Mean=
Range=maximum-minimum=16-0=16
b) undergraduate students.
There are 105+89+69+92=355 undergraduate students in total. So,
Mean=
Range= maximum-minimum=16-0=16.
c) males.
There are 58+33+21+28=140 males in total. So,
Mean=
Range= maximum-minimum=16-0=16.
d) females.
There are 290+140+72+77=579 females in total. So,
Mean=
Range= maximum-minimum=16-0=16.

Next CONSTRUCT 2 BIVARATE TABLES. Each should be TITLED, PERCENTAGE, & INCLUDE THE NUMBER OF CASES ...
