Analyzing Presidential Voting and Racial Injustice Views with SPSS Manual

• Open up your ANES2016-2020 datafile
• As before, WEIGHT by the variable POST2020

Ã¯Â¿Â½

LetÃ¯Â¿Â½s turn V47 (2020 Presidential Vote) into a Binary (Biden/Trump) by eliminating (SYSMIS) those who voted for other candidates. WeÃ¯Â¿Â½ll create a new variable, TWOPARTY:

RECODE V47 ( 1=1)(2=2)(ELSE=SYSMIS) into TWOPARTY.

Run a Frequency on that new variable to make sure it aligns with this output. Category Ã¯Â¿Â½1Ã¯Â¿Â½ indicates a vote for Biden, Ã¯Â¿Â½2Ã¯Â¿Â½ for Trump. Biden did much better in this survey than in the actual election, even considering sampling error:

New Procedure Ã¯Â¿Â½ CROSSTABS (revised SPSS MANUAL, CROSSTABS)

• Many of you, in your initial hypothesis, treated the DV as if it was a direct assessment of Ã¯Â¿Â½howÃ¯Â¿Â½ someone voted, not their feelings towards the candidates individually. We are now giving you the chance to directly test for that IV-Vote relationship.
• Produce a crosstabulation/contingency table (CROSSTABS) with the new variable TWOPARTY as your dependent variable (defining the rowsÃ¯Â¿Â½it can be reversed, but this way you are all using the same format) and your previously chosen binary IV as your independent variable.
• Ask for column percentages and chi-square.
• Your original binary IV (RACE or V41 or AGE65 or AGEMEDIAN or EDUCATION or INCOME) will be your independent variable
• As this is a 2x2 table (df=1) use the (Yates) Continuity Correction Chi-square value.

Ã¯Â¿Â½

• Go back to your original (A1) or revised (A2) hypothesis. Answer the following questions :

New Procedure Ã¯Â¿Â½ controlled CROSSTABS (revised SPSS MANUAL, CROSSTABS)

You will now use a third variable as a control. This control can be used for either an explanatory link (why are your IV and DV connected as they are?) or interactive/specification effect (what are the effects of two variables on the outcome). Repeat the steps in Section A for each of your controlled crosstabs.

• If RACE is your binary IV:

Task 1: Are differences in presidential voting between Black and Non-Black citizens explained by their different views towards racial injustice? Use V99 (Do police treat blacks or whites better?) by recoding into a new binary variable POLICE (too few listed category 3, so combine it with 2):

RECODE V99 (1=1)(2,3=2) INTO POLICE.

Your new variable, POLICE, should list as (run a FREQUENCY):
