I’m doing a replication and update to a previously published study. The study uses data from the General Social Survey (years 1991-2000) and looks at the relationship between gender, sexuality, and religious commitment.
The author uses four different variables to measure religious commitment:
Church Attendance - Likert Scale Ordinal Variable
Frequency of Prayer – Likert Scale Ordinal Variable
Biblical Belief – Nominal Variable
Apostate - Nominal Yes/No Variable created from two other variables (religious affiliation at age 16 and current religious affiliation) which measures if an individual has “left” religion.
Biblical Belief was recoded into a Yes/No Dummy Variable. Church Attendance, Frequency of Prayer and Apostate did not need to be recoded
A Variable for sexual orientation was created combining the variable for Gender and the variable for Sex of Sex Partners. The variable had six categories: Female Heterosexual, Male Heterosexual, Female Bisexual, Male Bisexual, Gay Female, and Gay Male.
The first Table in my study looked at means (for Church Attendance and Frequency of Prayer) and percentages (for Biblical Belief and Apostate) for the 4 religious commitment variables for each of the Sexual Orientation categories.
I got the exact values for this table by performing a compare means in SPSS with the 4 religious commitment variables as dependent variables and Sexual Orientation as the independent variable.
The second table is similar to the first but looks at just Church Attendance and Apostate. For Church Attendance it wants the adjusted mean after performing an OLS Regression controlling for Age, Education, Race, Marital Status, No Religious Affiliation, and Number of Children. For Apostate it wants the adjusted predicted probability after performing Logistic Regression controlling for Age, Education, Race, Marital Status, and Number of Children.
I have all the Control Variables and recoded them where necessary. I need help properly setting up the regressions as well as figuring out how to use the results of the regression to get the adjusted mean and adjusted probability.
