ScenarioYou are a new graduate researcher at a social science and psychological sciences research institute. You have been given adataset based on the most recent Australian Public Service Commission Census 2016, which is a survey of Australian PublicService Sector Employees and asked to analyse the data to answer several questions of interest that are presented on thefollowing pages.You will use the data set provided for you in the Supporting resources section.Data preparationFor the purpose of your report, you must use SPSS to draw a random sample of 1500 of the 4352 observations. You will conductyour analysis on this sample of 1500. Instructions on how to generate your random sample are on pages four (4) to seven (7) ofthis document. Once you have drawn your random sample, you may need to modify your data for the binomial test. The instructionsof which are provided on page eight (8). Note, however, that some variables contain missing values. Therefore, each of youranalyses might not contain the entire 1500 cases.Data analysisFor your assignment, you are required to complete the first four questions by producing the appropriate analyses and writing therelevant report for each question. You are also required to complete Question 5, which contains two short answer questions. Thereports should follow the format of the model reports provided in the Additional resources section. For each of the first fourquestions requiring SPSS, you should include the relevant output (e.g. tables, confidence interval calculations and graphs) withyour report.You are required to produce the following sets of analyses. Each analysis should be accompanied by a brief report (each reportshould be no more than one page).
