The results may not be shocking, but the empirical data analysis shows that the average Quebecker does not really like Canada when the threshold for ‘really like’ is set at 80 or more out of 100. The rest of this paper will thoroughly look at the steps that it took to reach this conclusion including a descriptive summary of the methodological considerations, a detailed follow-through of the results from the data analysis and a discussion of the findings and what they mean.
More specifically, we are investigating the validity of the claim that the average Quebecker really likes Canada (H1: P > 80). The possibility that the average Quebecker does not really like Canada must also be investigated and theoretically rejected, but could also include a conclusion in which this possibility cannot be rejected, as this case shows. Therefore, the null hypothesis I will be testing that the average Quebecker really dislikes Canada (H0: P ≤ 80). The data used in testing this claim comes from the Canadian Election Study of 2011 where two variables were used: ‘How do you feel about Canada?’ (PES11_11) and the province of…
