  • Using the SPSS software, open the Afrobarometer dataset found in this week’s Learning Resources.
  • Next, review the Chi Square Scenarios found in this week’s Learning Resources and consider each research scenario for this Assignment.
  • Based on the dataset you chose and for each research scenario provided, using the SPSS software, choose a categorical data analysis and run a sample test.
  • Once you perform your categorical data analysis, review Chapter 11 of the Wagner text to understand how to copy and paste your output into your Word document.
