The example dataset
The manual repeatedly refers to an example dataset so we are able to provide examples throughout the manual.
The dataset covers dummy data from an Employee Satisfaction Survey conducted which contains:
A number ordinal scale questions containing categories from ‘strongly disagree’ to ‘strongly agree’
A number of nominal scale questions as ‘Gender’, ‘Department’, and ‘Team’, each containing a number of categories.
A number of numeric questions as ‘Age’, ‘Working hours’ etc. which contains numerical data.
Open ended questions containing open ended text
Throughout the manual, we will strive to relate closely to the example data and the many practical issues which pop up when analyzing and reporting this type of data. In general, we will always try to relate to the researchers situation and keep the manual as non-technical as possible.
