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
There are 243+87+24+15=369 graduate students in total. So,
Mean=
Range=maximum-minimum=16-0=16
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 ON WHICH THE PERCENTAGES ARE ...
