4434General Social Survey (2014): Statistics Using SDA (Survey Documentation and Analysis)
https://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=1254901
These exercises (15 in all) were written for instructors teaching an introductory class in statistics. They were written so each exercise is independent of the others and any one exercise can be used even if the other exercises are not used. These instructional exercises were originally written for SPSS. However, some colleges, including many community colleges, do not have a site license for SPSS. The cost of SPSS is often prohibitive, so I rewrote the exercises to run in SDA, an online statistical package written and maintained at UC Berkeley. SDA is freely available wherever you have an internet connection. I prepared a document to help you with SDA (Notes on Using SDA) which should answer some of your questions about SDA. These documents can be downloaded from the website. The data set used in this exercise is the 2014 General Social Survey. Each exercise consists of two files both of which can be downloaded: the exercise itself as a Word (docx) file and notes to instructor as a Word (docx) file. You have permission to use these exercises and to revise them to fit your needs. Each exercise has a set of keywords to give you a quick view of what is covered.Sat, 3 Dec 2016 10:29:00 -0800Digital Commons Network: [Open Access] Social and Behavioral Sciences Commons

https://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=1120318
There are four exercise that use data from the 2014 General Social Survey to explore gender differences. These exercises could be used to help students learn the principles of quantitative analysis with a focus on gender differences.

Control variables (i.e., family income, respondent's income, gun ownership) are added into the analysis to see how they affect gender differences. Exercises refer students to the relevant parts of an online introduction to SPSS, the software package used in this analysis. This online introduction is freely avalable at http://ssric.org/node/459. Each exercise consists of four files -- the data set in SPSS format, extended notes to the instructor, the SPSS syntax necessary to carry out the exercise, and the SPSS output for the exercise.Mon, 25 Jan 2016 17:02:05 -0800Global Challenges: Wiley Online Library
