Case study chp 10
1. Do you agree that Obama care is a good policy? Rate this statement using a 5-point Likert scale:
1= strong disagree 2 = disagree 3=neutral 4=agree 5=strongly agree
•Peter, Paul, and Mary chose “3”.
•Peter’s position: “I am not sure. There are both pros and cons in this policy.”
•Paul’s position: “I already have my own insurance. I don’t care.”
•Mary’s position: “I am a new immigrant. I don’t know what Obamacare is. No idea!”
Should we treat the data as a continuous scale (1-5) or a categorical scale (label)?
