Variables in my study are astrological sign, happiness, health and income Data on these variables can be found in the General Social Survey at http://www.icpsr.umich.edu/GSS

Three Hypotheses Astrological sign will be significantly related to happiness Astrological sign will be significantly related to health Astrological sign will be significantly related to income Astrological Sign and Health Health: Aires Taurus

Good 46.2% 46.1% 44.7% 44.8% 46.7% 44.9% 42.7% Fair 16.9% 17.1% 18.9%

18.7% 18.6% 17.5% 18.1% Poor 5.1% 6.3% 5.8% 5.3% 5.5% 6.5% 6.2%

18.1% 18.8% 18.0% p = .21 5.1% 5.8% 5.2% 5.5% s 30.2% Aquarius 32.1%

Pisces 32.2% Total 31.4% Chi square = 39.34 df = 33 N = 25,412 Astrological Sign and Health Most respondents are in Excellent or Good health

There is no significant relationship between Astrological Sign and Health The next two hypothesis tests are left as an exercise Note that this assignment will be easier if you choose a variable with fewer than 12 values, or one that can be recoded into fewer categories. Astrological Sign and Happiness Astrological Sign and Income

Conclusions Astrological Sign is not significantly related to health, happiness or income
