Look back on Assignment 4, and choose an association that you would like to know more about: Is it spurious? Is there an intervening variable explaining it? Run an analysis for this association controlling for a third variable—one that you have not selected among your initial three variables for the assignments in this course.

You want to design a crosstab, so you may have to do some recording of one or more variable(s) so that you have them at the correct level of measurement.

Once you have run the SPSS commands, export the table from the Statistics Viewer into a Word file. Interpret the results below the table. Make sure you include the Lambda (or Gamma) and Chi-Square tables for this analysis so you can answer the three hypothesis testing questions about the strength of association, direction (if applicable), and statistical significance. In these tables, make sure you pull the Chi-Square and Lambda/Gamma values for the “Total” association and not the prior rows of the Output.

Note: you will have to give your table a title in Word because you cannot change the title display of tables in SPSS. Also, remember that the new table you create will be titled for one category of the dependent variable and present the correctly selected percentages from the SPSS Output, as shown in Demonstration 17.1 in the textbook.

This is what the teacher said about #4 and #5 lab??

Here’s what you’re doing:

Look at one of your crosstabs from SPSS Lab 4.

Think about the relationship that you hypothesized between two of your variables.

What else could explain the relationship?  Include that variable in a three-way crosstab.  (This is called a control variable.)
