Week 2: Displaying Data Results

For verification purposes of the General Social Survey (GSS) dataset, the mean of ‘age’ has been determined as 48.62 (Walden University, 2014). For this discussion board assignment, the variable ‘Have a Gun in the Home’ is being compared with the ‘Respondent Sex’.

Visual Display of a Categorical Variable(s)

A bar graph is one of the most commonly used graphical techniques used by social scientists when they are attempting to provide visualization of nominal or ordinal variables (Frankfort-Nachmias et al., 2021; Laureate Education, 2016). The variables chosen both represent nominal variables that have no intrinsic ordering (Frankfort-Nachmias et al., 2021). The bar graph can be used to illustrate the difference in frequency or percentage of nominal or ordinal variables. This particular bar graph allows for easy recognition of the number or male versus female respondents and their indication of having a gun in their home.

Social Change

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention [CDC] (2020), gun violence remains a serious concern for citizens of the United States. It is estimated that in 2018, nearly 40,000 firearm-related deaths were reported. Suicides accounted for six of every ten deaths, while homicides are attributed to three of ten deaths (CDC, 2020; Durkin et al., 2020). The analysis of the variables is comprised of (n=342) respondents. Gun violence is a serious issue and it is essential to have both reliable and accurate information regarding usage and possession of firearms in order to promote positive social change through policy changes, educational initiatives and laws that surround this topic (Walden University, 2020). The data is displayed in a bar graph with labels to indicate the sex of the respondent(s) and the number of response(s). The bar graph allows for an easy comparison of ‘yes’ and ‘no’ with respect to the sex of the respondents.
