Date: Sept 08,2016 1 GENERAL SOCIAL SURVEY 2014 2 INTRODUCTION
General Social survey is a sociological survey used to collect information and keep a
historical record of the concerns, attitude, experiences and practices of the residents of US.
Here we will analyse data with respect to year 2014.We will select few variables from the
General Social Survey dataset for the year 2014.
VARIABLES
The variables taken from the GSS 2014 are as follows:
Variable naming
age
childs
citizen
hrsrelax
income06 Variable meaning
Household members 18year or older
Age of respondent
Number of Children
Are you a citizen of America?
Hours per day R have to relax
Total family income Categorical or Quantitative

For the variable ,â€adultsâ€ it will be better if we use the bar chart because the number of
children is a discrete variable and hence the frequency of the number of children will be
better represented in the bar chart. HOUSEHOLD MEMBERS 18 YRS AND OLDER

Missing 3 NA Total Explanation:From the above bar graph it is clear that most of the respondents households has
2 adult members with a frequency of 1318 followed by adult member with frequency of 828.
b) Age of respondent
It is a quantitative variable. As age is a continuous variable therefore it would be better if we
use descriptive statistics in analysing the variable. GENERAL SOCIAL SURVEY 2014 4 Descriptive Statistics
N Range AGE OF RESPONDENT 2529 Valid N (listwise) 2529 Minimum 71 Maximum 18 89 Mean Std. Deviation 49.01 17.412 From the above table it is clear that the mean age of 2529 respondent is 49.01 years with a
standard deviation of 17.412 year.
c) Childs
It is also discrete as it depicts about the total children respondent have in his household.
Therefore a bar graph will be best to represent this variable.

Missing Percent DK NA GENERAL SOCIAL SURVEY 2014 5 It can be said from the graph that most of the households has either 0 or 2 children as the
frequency is 704 for 0 children and 658 for 2 children.
d)citizen
The variables ask the respondents whether they are citizen of America or not. The frequency
table is shown below with the bar graph and pie chart as both could be used. ARE YOU A CITIZEN OF AMERICA?

Total Pie Chart 6 GENERAL SOCIAL SURVEY 2014 7 The above pie chart says almost all of the respondents are citizen of America with a valid
percent of 93.4%. e)hrsrelax
It is a continuous variable which corresponds to number of hours respondent relax per day.
Thus descriptive statistics will be e better choice to explain the variable. Descriptive Statistics

standard deviation of 2.583 hour.
f) income 06(Total family income)
Here the total family income has been grouped under various categories which is discrete
such as.â€1â€ represent income under \$1000,â€2â€ represent income from \$1000 to \$2999 etc.
Therefore histogram plot will be better to see which group or categories most of the family
income lies.

From the above graph and tables it is clear that discrete variable can be better represented
using bar graph or pie chart whereas for continuous variable, it is better to use descriptive
statistics which analyses the mean and standard deviation of the variable. GENERAL SOCIAL SURVEY 2014 11 REFERENCES
