    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?

    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 ON WHICH THE PERCENTAGES ARE ...
