The WVS is the largest non-commercial, cross-national, time series investigation of human beliefs and values ever executed, currently including interviews with almost 400,000 respondents.

The purpose of this assignment is to equip you with the ability to selectively analyse different sets of data for insight, and to report the findings in effective manner. This assignment consists of five tasks, but the report should flow as a single whole document. (1) Provide an overview of the research topic
(2) Develop the conceptual model and generate hypotheses. You can refer to relevant theory and literature within this subtask
(3) Discuss your selected data/variables from World Values Survey United Kingdom
Choose your variables from data_students.xls.
(4) Analyse the data using appropriate data analysis tools:
Univariate analysis-Descriptive statistics, graphics and arithmetic measures (Lectures 4 and 5)
Bivariate analysis-Correlation, Anova, t-test (Lecture 6, Lecture 7)
Multivariate analysis-(Lecture 8 and onwards. One type of multivariate analysis is sufficient, for example, an OLS model)
(5) Describe the findings consistent with the conceptual model
