** 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.
