  5. Using Contingency Tables • Also known as Pivot Tables • Check for differences in findings for different independent variables like demographics or type of program. • Male/female versus like dislike the program • Type of program versus like/dislike the program

  6. Table for Comparing Sample to the Target Population

  7. Bivariate in Your Report • Client may want to know if the bar graph results would be different by • Gender • Age • Program type • Others Put these tables in either the comment section or the appendix.

  8. Bivariate Analysis Table Respondents’ Feelings Toward the Program by Gender

  9. Contingency Table Exercise • Break into Groups of 3 • Figure out one contingency table you could use in your study • Choose the best one and draw it on a piece of paper • We will discuss

  10. Rough Drafts • Report Formatting Outlines on website • Not graded, but you must turn something in. • The more you submit, the more comments you’ll get, the better off you’ll be.

  11. Cover Sheets • A template for the cover sheet can be found on the class web site: http://classes.maxwell.syr.edu/paf315/ • All 3 copies of the final report must use the cover sheet template with your title on it.
