SOC The accompanying table gives scores on four variables for 30 cases from the General Social Survey: • “Age” is reported in years. • “Happiness” consists of answers to the question “Taken all together, would you say that you are 1. Very happy 2. Pretty happy 3. Not too happy?” • “Number of Partners” refers to sex partners over the past five years: • A score of 0 to 4 is the actual number of partners. • A score of 5 means 5–10 partners. • A score of 6 means 11–20 partners. • A score of 7 means 21–100 partners. • A score of 8 means more than 100 partners. • “Religion” is self-identified religious affiliation (Protestant, Catholic, Jew, Other, or None). For each variable, find the appropriate measure of central tendency, and write a sentence reporting this statistical information as you would in a research report.
