Below are the raw frequencies for two ordinal variables: a measure of individuals’ levels of social trust (part A), and a measure of opinions about a requirement that would regulate automobile manufacturers (part B). The social trust variable, which is based on the extent to which individuals think that people can be trusted, has four values: low, medium-low, medium-high, and high trust. The automobile manufacturers variable is based on how strongly respondents favor or oppose requiring car manufacturers to make cars and trucks that use less gasoline. This variable is coded by five values: strongly favor requirement, favor, neither favor nor oppose, oppose, or strongly oppose such a requirement.14

For each variable: (i) Construct a frequency distribution, including frequencies, percentages, and cumulative percentages. (ii) Sketch a bar chart. (iii) Identify the mode. (iv) Identify the median. (v) State whether the variable has high dispersion or low dispersion. (vi) Explain how you know.

Raw frequencies for the social trust variable: low trust, 437; medium-low, 334; medium-high, 264; high trust, 273.

Raw frequencies for the car manufacturer variable: strongly favor requirement, 645; favor, 197; neither favor nor oppose, 52; oppose, 14; strongly oppose, 9.

Distribution of Possible points on each variable:

Social Trust:

i. Table /6; you need the table showing the frequencies, frequency percentages and cumulative frequencies

ii. Bar chart 4/4

iii. Mode .5/1

iv. Median .5/1:

you have to identify the categories of the variable where the mode and median are located

v. Dispersion 1/1

vi. Explain /2; explanation for why the dispersion is high Total: 6/15

Gas Regulations: 

i. Table /6 pts; 

ii. Bar chart 4/4 you mistakenly labeled this bar chart social trust it should car manufacturers of gas regulations

iii. Mode .5/1

iv. Median .5/1

v. Dispersion 1/1

vi. Explain /2 Total: 6/15
