Load atw.sav in SPSS. You are looking at a comparison of productivity under 2 organizational structures: The data are artificial estimates of productivity with column 1 representing traditional vertical management and column 2 representing other autonomous work teams (ATW). The background is that a company of 100 factory workers had been operating under traditional vertical management and decided to move to ATW. The same employees were involved in both systems having first worked under vertical management and then being converted to ATW.
Complete the following:
•Analyze the productivity levels of the 2 management approaches, and decide which is superior.
•Include the SPSS output, which validates your conclusion.
Load electric.sav in SPSS. You need to make a decision about whether a person’s diastolic blood pressure (DBP) level is a predictor of whether he or she is going to be alive 10 years later. You will use “DBP58” as a dependent variable and “VITAL10” as your independent variable. Complete the following:
•Analyze these conditions to determine if there is a significant difference between the DBP levels of those (vital10) who are alive 10 years later compared to those who died within 10 years. Include the SPSS output, which validates your conclusion.
•Write a brief paragraph describing your conclusions.
Occasionally, you have one independent variable that has 3 or more levels within. Consider the following question, and examine it using the gss.sav database: You are interested in looking at the relationship between the dependent variable of the income level of respondents (rincdol) and the independent variable of their reported level of happiness (happy). Using SPSS, complete the following:
•Run the ANOVA program to determine the overall conclusion.
•Use the Bonferroni correction as a post-hoc analysis to determine the relationship of specific levels of happiness to income.
