Textbook Problem

Gaucher, Friesen, and Kay (2011) found that words they identified as “masculine themed” (such tut competitive, independent, analyze, strong) are commonly used in job recruitment materials, especially for job advertisements in male-dominated areas. In a similar study, a researcher counted the number of masculine-themed words in job advertisement for job areas, and obtained the following data.

Area | Number of Masculine Words |

Plumber | 14 |

Electrician | 12 |

Security guard | 17 |

Bookkeeper | 9 |

Nurse | 6 |

Early-childhood educator | 7 |

Determine what kind of graph would be appropriate for showing this distribution and sketch the frequency distribution graph.

To determine

The kind of graph appropriate to show the given distribution.

**To construct:** The frequency distribution graph.

Explanation

**Given info:**

The given area and number of masculine words showing below:

Area | No. of masculine words / Frequencies |

Plumber | 14 |

Electrician | 12 |

Security guard | 17 |

Book keeper | 9 |

Nurse | 6 |

Early-childhood educator | 7 |

**Justification:**

The given data are measured on a nominal scale. The bar graph is the graph which is used to make frequency distribution graph of nominal scale data.

**Software procedure:**

Step-by-step procedure to obtain the frequency distribution table using the SPSS software:

- Enter the data under Area and Frequency column...
