creating the crosstabulated table 1
Creating the Crosstabulated Table - 1

In SPSS, you can obtain a crosstabulated table by clicking:

Analyze > Descriptive Statistics > Crosstabs

In other words, first, click on Analyze in the menu bar of SPSS, then find and click on Descriptive Statistics on a pop-down submenu. Again, find and click on Crosstabs on another pop-down submenu. Then, you will see a window shown in the next slide.

creating the crosstabulated table 2
Creating the Crosstabulated Table - 2

Move the variable [owngun] to the “Rows(s):” list box.

Move the variable [conserv] to the “Columns(s):” list box.

Click on “Cells…” button on the bottom.

Click on the OK button to produce the output.

the bivariate table
The Bivariate Table

There is a relationship in the bivariate table if the absolute value of the difference in column percentages on one of the rows is 10% or greater.

In this example, the difference is 57.6% - 73.1% = -15.5%. There is a relationship.

adding the control variable to the analysis 1

the partial tables in the crosstabulated output
The Partial Tables in the Crosstabulated Output

The partial table for the first value or condition of the control variable (sex = male) is in the top half of the three-way crosstabs table.

The partial table for the second value or condition of the control variable (sex = female) is in the bottom half of the three-way crosstabs table.

the first partial table
The First Partial Table

There is a relationship in the first partial table if the absolute value of the difference in column percentages is 10% or greater for the same row we compared in the bivariate table.

In this example, the difference is 55.2% - 71.2% = -16.0%. There is a relationship in the first partial table.

the second partial table
The Second Partial Table

There is a relationship in the second partial table if the absolute value of the difference in column percentages is 10% or greater for the same row we compared in the bivariate table.

In this example, the difference is 60.0% - 74.6% = -14.6%. There is a relationship in the second partial table.

differences in column percentages 1
Differences in Column Percentages - 1

To compare column percentages, we compute the difference between the lower left-hand cell in the partial tables and the bivariate table

The percentage in both the first partial table (71.2%) and the second partial table (74.6%) are LESS than 5% different from the bivariate table (73.1%).

differences in column percentages 2
Differences in Column Percentages - 2

To compare column percentages, we compute the difference between the lower right-hand cell in the partial tables and the bivariate table

The percentage in both the first partial table (55.2%) and the second partial table (60.0%) are LESS than 5% different from the bivariate table (57.6%).

With the information about the relationships in the partial tables and differences in column percentages, we can answer the question.

the bivariate table22
The Bivariate Table

There is a relationship in the bivariate table if the absolute value of the difference in column percentages on one of the rows is 10% or greater.

In this example, the difference is 24.0% - 38.5% = -14.5%. There is a relationship.

To add the control variable to the analysis, move the [fundamen] variable to the list box in the Layer panel.

Click on the OK button to produce the output.

the partial tables in the crosstabulated output25
The Partial Tables in the Crosstabulated Output

The partial table for the first value or condition of the control variable (religious orientation = not fundamentalist) is in the top half of the three-way crosstabs table.

The partial table for the second value or condition of the control variable (religious orientation = fundamentalist) is in the bottom half of the three-way crosstabs table.

the first partial table26
The First Partial Table

There is not a relationship in the first partial table since the difference of 42.9% - 41.0% = 1.9% is less than 10%.

the second partial table27
The Second Partial Table

There is not a relationship in the second partial table since the difference of 21.4% - 25.9% = -4.5% is less than 10%.
