    Please help with solution to ssps question below to my e-mail address fadogho@yahoo.com You must:  Create an SPSS database  Type in the data,  Draw a graph or a table (as appropriate) on your word processor  Give short answers to a list of questions Your answers must be word processed. Scenario 1 Professor Al Green wanted to investigate the relationship between access to gardens and happiness. She lived in an area where most of surrounding houses had gardens, so she went door to door to ask her neighbours to take part in the study. She then asked her students to take part if they didn’t have a garden at the place where they were living at that time. The study took place in late May and early June, when Professor Green reasoned that those who had a garden would be using it, and the students were likely to be on campus as they were revising for their exams. With both sets of participants, she told them that the study was about happiness and access to gardens, and that she expected to find a positive relationship. Participants were asked to fill out a happiness questionaire; Professor Green then divided them into those who scored above the middle score on the questionnaire, and those who scored below the middle score. She categorised those above the middle score as ‘happy’ and those below the middle score as ‘not happy’. The results showed that 170 participants scored ‘happy’ on the test, of these 95 had a garden and 30 did not. A further 80 scored ‘unhappy’, of these 30 had a garden, and 50 did not. Create an SPSS database and type in the data. Then answer the following questions: 1. Describe fully the type of design and the variables. 2. State the hypothesis 3. How many SPSS columns did you create? What names did you give them? How many rows of data did you key in? 4. What statistical test did you perform? 5. Report the statistical test in the correct format, and explain in one or two sentences what the results mean in terms of the hypothesis. 6. Create an appropriate table or graph using a word processor. You may not import a table or graph from SPSS and marks will be deducted if you do this. Use Word or Excel. 7. Take one aspect of the design that might damage the internal validity and explain a) why it is a threat and b) how you would overcome it. 8. Take one aspect of the design that might damage the external validity and explain a) why it is a threat and b) how you could overcome it. 9. Are there any ethical issues with this study? If so, what would you do to improve the ethical standards of the study?
