Learning Goal: I’m working on a political science exercise and need an explanation and answer to help me learn.Below are the raw frequencies for two ordinal variables: a measure of individuals’ levels of social trust
(part A), and a measure of opinions about a requirement that would regulate automobile manufacturers
(part B). The social trust variable, which is based on the extent to which individuals think that people can
be trusted, has four values: low, medium-low, medium-high, and high trust. The automobile
manufacturers variable is based on how strongly respondents favor or oppose requiring car manufacturers
to make cars and trucks that use less gasoline. This variable is coded by five values: strongly favor
requirement, favor, neither favor nor oppose, oppose, or strongly oppose such a requirement.
For each variable: (i) Construct a frequency distribution, including frequencies, percentages, and
cumulative percentages. (ii) Sketch a bar chart. (iii) Identify the mode. (iv) Identify the median. (v) State
whether the variable has high dispersion or low dispersion. (vi) Explain how you know.
1. Raw frequencies for the social trust variable: low trust, 437; medium-low, 334; medium-high,
264; high trust, 273. 2. Raw frequencies for the car manufacturer variable: strongly favor requirement, 645; favor, 197;
neither favor nor oppose, 52; oppose, 14; strongly oppose, 9.
