1. Enter the data for G18.4, education, sex, and age into an SPSS
file. Reproduce the analysis of
variance on the May 23, 1995 handout using the *Means* procedure. Conduct an
analysis of variance with G18.4 as dependent variable and sex as the
independent variable using the *One-way
ANOVA* procedure, including the 95 per cent interval estimates. Conduct an analysis of variance with G18.4
as the dependent variable and age as the independent variable using the *General Linear Model Simple Factorial*
method. Also obtain the multiple
classification analysis (MCA) by using the *Hierarchical*
option. State the hypotheses and
conclusions in each case and provide short written description of the results.

2. Use the *703.sav* file to
conduct the following analyses of variance.
First, recode federal political preference into four categories, merging
those who prefer the PCs, Reform, and Saskachewan Party. Then use analysis of variance to test
whether the mean value of opinion for variable V8 differs by federal political
preference. Do the same for opinion
variable V9. Describe the results of
the analysis of variance and describe the pattern of opinions by federal
political preference for these two opinion questions.

3. Use the *703.sav* file again
and select only those who prefer one of Liberal, NDP, PC, or Reform at the
federal level. Test whether the means
of V9 differ among those who have a preference for one of these four federal
parties. Do the results differ from
question 2? Why or why not?
