On the basis of these data, would you say that gender is associated with occupational prestige?  What could explain this relationship?  Remember to explain this relationship based on what the test measures.

2) You will report the information listed below for the GSS 2018 data set: Perform an independent samples t-test to compare the mean socioeconomic index (SEI10) of those who have had a born again experience with those who have not (REBORN).

4. Perform a paired t-test to compare the median earnings of male full-time workers (EMS168) to the median earnings of female full-time workers (EMS169) using the STATES10 data set.

Mean earnings of men?                                      ___________________

Mean earnings of women?                                  ___________________

Significance for the Paired Samples Test?             ___________________

Is the relationship statistically significant                                      Yes                  No

Are earnings related to gender?  Remember to explain this relationship based on what the test measures.  What were you expecting to find and did you find it?

5. Using a variable called WAGEGAP that is the difference between median earnings of male full-time workers (EMS168) and the median earnings of female full-time workers (EMS169),

Create a histogram of WAGEGAP’s distribution (Remember Histogram is under either frequencies-click on chart from the dialog box OR under GRAPH).  GRAPH IS PART OF THE RIBBON OF COMMANDS ALONG THE TOP

Describe the shape of the distribution.

In which state do women have earnings closest to men’s?     ___________________

In which state do women’s women have earnings most disparate from men’s? ___________________

(If you are having trouble with this, you can sort the data (sort cases) in DATA VIEW from lowest to highest by the WAGEGAP variable and …)

What might account for the variation in wage gaps observed across states?
