Hii

I am doing my final year project in WORKPLACE STRESS. i have collected the data, i used chi-square, Anova for data analysis.now i want to use t-test & z-test for data analysis.How to use it? I have used 5 rating scale in my questionnaire i.e Agree, Disagree, Neutral, Strongly Agree, Strongly Disagree.Which one i have to use in order to support my hypothesis.

Example1: For T-test

out of 100 samples, 10 of them are dept. heads

Null hypothesis: All dept.head are feeling stress due to job responsibility.

Alt. hypothesis: Not all dept.head are feeling stress due to job responsibility.

Collected data

Experiencing stress due to job responsibility.

Agree-7, Disagree-1, Neutral-0, Strongly Agree-2, Strongly Disagree-0

Example2: For Z-test

Null hypothesis: 15% of the employees are feeling stress when working in shifts.

Alt. hypothesis: <15% of the employees are feeling stress when working in shifts.

Experiencing stress when work in shift.

Agree-6, Disagree-26, Neutral-38, Strongly Agree-10, Strongly Disagree-28

How to solve this??

The discussions at One Sample T-Test with Likert Scale Questionnaire - Statistics Help @ Talk Stats Forum will highlight the deficiencies with your approach to using t-test to Dept. Heads problem.

Likert scale@Everything2.com this site warn against the use of t-test when Likert Scale is used.

Thanks for giving me suggestion So far what i have done is everything wrong. how to interpret likert scale data? What i have done is i added every samples,so i got this. Agree-6, Disagree-26, Neutral-38, Strongly Agree-10, Strongly Disagree-28 What should i have to do now. |

Agree-6, Disagree-26, Neutral-38, Strongly Agree-10, Strongly Disagree-28

i used this data for analysis of hypothesis with anova and chi square,

for ex: relationship exist b/w no. of family members & employees experience stress when their expenses are more than income.

for the statement "I experience stress when my expenses are more than my income" i got this result.

Agree-38, Disagree-6, Neutral-26, Strongly Agree-28, Strongly Disagree-2

i categorize the data according to the no. of family members, like this.

family mem. |Strongly Agree |Agree | Neutral | Disagree |Strongly Disagree

</=3 ............. 2................... 9.......... 2.......... 1................ 1

4 ..................11................. 22...........8 ......... 3................ 0

>4.................15.................. 7.......... 16......... 2................ 1

is it correct?

How to apply this sort of codes to my statements.

strongly disagree 1

disagree 2

not sure 3

agree 4

strongly agree 5

i've done my project in India Cements Ltd. now i'm in the position of preparing the report

i thought of doing the sign test for the facilities provided by ICL to the employees

so i've collected the data with the scale of yes, no and no option

but i've some difficulties to analyse

for doing sign test we have to eliminate the no option

and cosider only the yes and no for calculating n value

then how to find out the z value

can u explain the way of doing sign test...... pls........
