T-Test Exercise Open file: binge.sav

  1. Using the BINGE.SAV data file, compare the means and perform a t-test to examine the relationship between gender (GENDER) and the number of drinks needed to get drunk (GETDRUNK).

State the Null Hypothesis and Alternative Hypothesis:

    • Null Hypothesis (Ho): ________________

    • Alternative Hypothesis (Ha): ________________

State the Independent and Dependent variables.

    • Independent variable: ________________

    • Dependent variable: ________________

  1. Who needs, on average, more drinks to get drunk, males or females? In addition to your answer, paste the means comparison table below:


  1. What is the mean difference?


  1. Is the difference statistically significant?


  1. Recode GETDRUNK to distinguish between needing five (5) or fewer drinks to get drunk and needing six (6) or more drinks to get drunk. Create a crosstabulation to examine the bivariate relationship between this new variable of getting drunk and gender. Ask for a chi-square and lambda. Compare your results of the crosstab to your results of the t-test and comparison of means.

What difference do you see—if any? List the chi-square and lambda and paste the crosstab below:
