Description

Attitudes towards the Swahili language among Kenyan school children

Format

A dataset with 480 observations on the following 4 variables.

Province NAIROBI or PWANI
Sex female or male
Attitude.Score Score (out a possible 200 points) on a survey of attitude towards the Swahili language
School Code for the school: A through L

Details

Hamisi Babusa, a Kenyan scholar, administered a survey to 480 students from Pwani and Nairobi provinces about their attitudes towards the Swahili language. In addition, the students took an exam on Swahili. From each province, the students were from 6 schools (3 girls schools and 3 boys schools) with 40 students sampled at each school, so half of the students from each province were males and the other half females. The survey instrument contained 40 statements about attitudes towards Swahili and students rated their level of agreement to each. Of these questions, 30 were positive questions and the remaining 10 were negative questions. On an individual question the most positive response would be assigned a value of 5 while the most negative response would be assigned a value of 1. By summing (adding) the responses to each question, we can find an overall Attitude Score for each student. The highest possible score would be 200 (an individual who gave the most positive possible response to every question). The lowest possible score would be 40 (an individual who gave the most negative response to every question).
