Reporting Statistics in APA Style
Dr. Jeffrey Kahn, Illinois State University
The following examples illustrate how to report statistics in the text of a research report. You will note that significance levels in journal articles--especially in tables--are often reported as either "p > .05," "p < .05," "p < .01," or "p < .001." APA style dictates reporting the exact p value within the text of a manuscript (unless the p value is less than .001).
Please pay attention to issues of italics and spacing. APA style is very precise about these. Also, with the exception of some p values, most statistics should be rounded to two decimal places.

Mean and Standard Deviation are most clearly presented in parentheses:
The sample as a whole was relatively young (M = 19.22, SD = 3.45).
The average age of students was 19.22 years (SD = 3.45). Percentages are also most clearly displayed in parentheses with no decimal places:
Nearly half (49%) of the sample was married. Chi-Square statistics are reported with degrees of freedom and sample size in parentheses, the Pearson chi-square value (rounded to two decimal places), and the significance level:
The percentage of participants that were married did not differ by gender, χ2(1, N = 90) = 0.89, p = .35. T Tests are reported like chi-squares, but only the degrees of freedom are in parentheses. Following that, report the t statistic (rounded to two decimal places) and the significance level.
There was a significant effect for gender, t(54) = 5.43, p < .001, with men receiving higher scores than women. ANOVAs (both one-way and two-way) are reported like the t test, but there are two degrees-of-freedom numbers to report. First report the between-groups degrees of freedom, then report the within-groups degrees of freedom (separated by a comma). After that report the F statistic (rounded off to two decimal places)…...

Jack and the Beanstalk

...Risk-taking and social mobility in “Jack and the Beanstalk” One of the common themes in most fairy tales is extreme poverty and starvation. This is because these tales were folk traditions told by peasants and poverty was one of the few things that they knew very well. In “Jack and the Beanstalk” poverty is the central theme. Joseph Jacobs and Andrew Lang tell the story of a poverty-stricken boy and his adventure to rise above his childhood poverty and become rich. In both Jacobs and Lang’s version of "Jack and the Beanstalk, Jack is depicted as an ambitious risk-taker and clever boy who steals to overcomes poverty yet the audiences that Jacobs and Lang are writing for is clearly different. Jack takes numerous risks that allow him to get out of poverty in both versions but Jacobs’ version would be much more appealing to peasants while Lang’s version would be more appealing to the middle class who would not favor social mobility of peasants. Jacob’s and Lang’s version of the tale are remarkably similar because they both depict Jack as a risk-taker and resourceful boy who is able to use his cleverness to escape the clutches of poverty. In each tale Jack takes four risks. These risks are selling his cow for magic beans and each of the three times that he goes up the beanstalk to the giant’s/ogre’s castle. The very act of selling the family cow for a few magic beans is an incredibly risky one. This act is risky because the beanstalk has no economic value......

Jack London

...Jack London The life experiences of John Griffith, or more commonly known as Jack London, are portrayed throughout his many stories. His stories reflect the strengths and weaknesses of the living creature (be it more or beast). Jack London began his adventures at a very early age. Born out of wedlock and into a poverty-ridden family he learned to find ways of escaping the dull routine of work. At the age of ten London was selling newspapers to supplement the family income. He labored in canneries, mills, doing laundry and shoveling coal so that he could support his family. Between the laborious chores of earning a living London also had numerous adventures when he tried the other side of the law. The adventures started when he buys himself a small skiff and teaches himself to sail but the pressures of home life take that away from he and he is forced to work at a cannery starting at the tender age of 14. Even at that age Jack London still had continuous thoughts of writing for a living. At the age of 15 London is tired of the low wages and the back breaking work of the factory and decides to take matters into his own hands. He sails out to become an Oyster pirate with the ship “The Razzle Dazzle” that he purchases with money borrowed from Virginia Prentiss. The title “Prince of the Oyster Pirates” is soon given to him, but he soon becomes disillusioned with the rough life and decides to change to the other side of the law again. The next......

Jack Sparrow

...Long Live Jack Sparrow My favorite actor is Johnny Depp. Personally, I haven’t watched too many of his movies but I’ve watched enough to know what an astonishing actor he is. From playing a man with scissors instead of hands, to being a rowdy pirate, to owning a chocolate factory, I believe he’s one of the greatest actors in filmmaking history. The best character he ever portray in a movie in my opinion is Jack Sparrow form the pirates of Caribbean’s. What is it exactly that makes Jack Sparrow so intriguing? For starters it’s Sparrow’s flamboyance and playfulness that made him so popular. Also it helps Johnny Depp's acting skills charmed me. One thing for sure Jack Sparrow is one of the most popular and beloved fictional characters in years. Kids’ love him, adults find him funny, women, well, let’s say he probably doesn’t go unnoticed even if it is quite clear, I think, that he is not the biggest fan of taking a shower every day! He is surely a charmer and most of all a persona that you simply can’t forget just as easily. Jack Sparrow might not be as family-friendly as Indiana Jones was and definitely not as politically correct and as fearless as a guy like Superman. Jack Sparrow is simply a larger than life charmer even in his most wicked moment and he has quite a few of them during his adventures while treasure hunting on the mythical sea. Jack Sparrow was a legendary pirate of the Seven Seas, and the irreverent trickster of the Caribbean. A......

...Edward Jenner was born in 1749 and died in 1823. Edward Jenner’s great gift to the world was his vaccination for smallpox. This disease was greatly feared at the time as it killed one in three of those who caught it and badly disfigured those who were lucky enough to survive catching it. Edward Jenner was a country doctor who had studied nature and his natural surroundings since childhood. He had always been fascinated by the rural old wives tale that milkmaids could not get smallpox. He believed that there was a connection between the fact that milkmaids only got a weak version of smallpox – the non-life threatening cowpox – but did not get smallpox itself. A milkmaid who caught cowpox got blisters on her hands and Jenner concluded that it must be the pus in the blisters that somehow protected the milkmaids. Jenner decided to try out a theory he had developed. A young boy called James Phipps would be his guinea pig. He took some pus from cowpox blisters found on the hand of a milkmaid called Sarah. She had milked a cow called Blossom and had developed the telltale blisters. Jenner ‘injected’ some of the pus into James. This process he repeated over a number of days gradually increasing the amount of pus he put into the boy. He then deliberately injected Phipps with smallpox. James became ill but after a few days made a full recovery with no side effects. It seemed that Jenner had made a brilliant discovery. He then encountered the prejudices and conservatism of the......

Jack Johnson

...Jack Johnson Boxing is a sport of contradictions: it is as artistic as it is primal and sophisticated as it is raw. The boxer’s must physically possess balletic footwork and brute force, while being emotionally equipped with both high-minded strategy and primordial blood thirst. Most importantly, however, the boxer exists within the ring in solitude. It is in boxing, above all sports, where the individual proves his worth. In early 20th century America, there were two undisputed truths about boxing: the Heavyweight Champion was the most prestigious title in sports, and a white man would hold it. Although slavery no long existed de jure, blacks were in no way free and by no means were they equal. Jack Johnson, a son of slaves, emerged from obscurity in the Jim Crow South to become the first black man to hold the most prestigious title in American sports. But, like the sport of boxing, Jack Johnson was a contradiction himself: although seen as a champion of the black race and enemy of whites, Jack Johnson himself was decidedly race-neutral. His hesitation to join the black community in complete solidarity made him an extremely complicated figure: he was feared by the white community and disliked by his own race. Underpinning this dynamic was his insistence on marrying white women, which made him a traitor in the eyes of the black community and a menace to the natural order of things. Jack Johnson was unique because of his unflagging individualism and his capacity...

...many advantages to studying abroad, students experience a different culture, language and traditions. Students are given the opportunity to make new friends and become independent. It also gives students the opportunity to get better jobs after they graduate. So I think that study abroad is an advantage more than disadvantage. Can only live fully by helping others to live. When you give life to friends you truly live. Cultures can only realize their further richness by honoring other traditions. When we meet people from different cultures, English is usually the language we have in common.

Jack Ma

...27.2014 Jack Ma’s Key to Success It’s a common saying “Where there is a will, there is a way” and a perfect example for this is the CEO of Alibaba, Jack Ma, who took the business world by storm with the largest IPO, exceeding the amount of 20 Billion dollars (CNBC, 2014). Despite being born in an underprivileged family, Jack Ma’s strong will to achieve his goals lead him to become one of the richest man in the world. Jack Ma’s success story is an inspiration to young adults, as it reinforces that dedication and hard work is the key to success. Jack Ma was born on 15th October 1964, in Hangzhou, China. He grew up in communist China with two siblings and strict parents (Stone & D’onfro, 2014). According to an article in Business Insider, Jack Ma often got into fights while growing up and he was never afraid of his opponents (Stone & D’onfro, 2014). He grew up during China’s cultural revolution and did not have the privilege to learn English. However, as China was opening up to the West, he saw an opportunity to learn English from the tourists who were visiting China. Every morning Jack Ma rode his bike for Forty minutes to get to the nearest tourist spot, so that he could learn English from the foreigners in exchange for a city tour. His dedication to learn English paid off, when he finally became an English teacher, after being rejected from KFC and dozens of other jobs (Stone & D’onfro, 2014). Life after High school was not any easier for Jack Ma. He......

Jacks Journey

...Jacks Journey Once upon a time there was a beautiful princess who lived in a kingdom far far away. A night, when the princess was on her way to bed, an ugly witch with a wart on the nose, kidnapped the princess. The witch flew the princess back to her place. No one had ever visited the house, because it was almost impossible to get there. The witch’s house was located in the middle of a big maze. To get to the maze, you had to climb over mountains and get over a wild river. The king announced publicly that the one, who could bring back his daughter, would get the princess and half the kingdom. Many people tried to get to the witch’s house, but they all failed. At the other end of the kingdom, a lazy boy named Jack,T lived in a house with his parents. Jack always sat inside his house doing nothing. But when he heard, that the princess had been kidnapped, he decided to go out and save her. Jack brought an apple with him so he would not get hungry. No one believed in Jack, not even his parents. They thought Jack was stupid, trying to get to the witch’s house barefooted, only bringing an apple to eat. Jack’s parent would not let him go, but he had already made up his mind. Jack carried the apple in his hand and left the kingdom. Soon Jack came to an old hut. Inside the hut, an old man was lying in a bed. He was very dirty and probably sick too. The old man looked like he had been lying in the bed for ages. He saw the apple in Jack’s hand. “Please give me your apple. I am......

...Jack Kerouac's Rejection of Traditional Values in On the Road One of the most notable aspects of Jack Kerouac’s On the Road, is the author’s willingness todescribe his own behaviors and attitudes in ways that reject traditional values, but enable himto make observations about America. These range from things like excessive drinking, whichwould always be viewed negatively, to an interest in jazz and racial mixing, which would have been viewed negatively in the 1950’s but not today. Also, Kerouac was part of a literarymovement – the Beats – whose rejection of traditional values was well known. BecauseKerouac rejected traditional values, On the Road was very controversial, but it was alsoinfluential.On the Road is a clearly autobiographical book, in which “Kerouac makes no attempt toseparate himself from his narrator” (Bartlett 125). On the Road is based on Kerouac’s actualexperiences, and the characters are based on actual people who he knew. (Bartlett 120;Latham; Charters 410-411). Therefore, Kerouac admits to doing anything that the narrator, SalParadise, did.One form of behavior that would be always be viewed negatively is excessive drinking. Saloften admits to drinking, but Kerouac uses this to make some interesting observations. For example, there is the time when Sal is with his friend Terry, and her brother Rickey andRickey’s friend Ponzo. Since Ponzo is in the business of buying and selling manure, they planto spend the say looking for manure, but they end up spending......

All women murdered by Jack the Ripper were prositutes lived and worked in the slums in the East Eng of London. All victims except for one were brutally mutilated.

...employers to reduce their running costs in two obvious ways. One was to move production lines to the mainland; the other was to decrease staffing cost by employing fewer workers but requiring them to share more workload. Heavy workload and long working hours created 123 238 exhaustion, stress, and lack of time for further study, social gatherings and normal family life. Miss Wong (age 28, administrative officer in a commercial firm in Hong Kong) said, It is common for us to leave the office at 9 pm. After a long day, I am already totally worn down. I could sleep even when I was standing in a bus. Endless work makes me sleep at midnight and it is difficult for further study. I also lack normal social life. I need to date and get married if possible, but the reality discourages me to have a normal life. Although I live with my parents, I have little interaction with them due to me coming home late. It seems that this situation will last forever. There’s alienation with my work. Another difficulty was they were facing keen competition with other groups in the workforce. It was not easy for the Generation Y to share the same benefits that the baby boomers and Generation X enjoyed. Take the field of university teaching as one example, Baby Boomers and Generation Xers who held PhD degrees two or three decades ago found it easier to be employed as assistant professors with good pay. A Generation Y academic, holding the same qualifications, would find it......

...Despite the many murders that occurred frequently in Eastend in the 1880’s, Ripper’s murders were said to be ‘singular’ and ‘peculiar’ which suggests that it was unique and that the method of murder was very different. The phrases ‘extraordinary violence’ and ‘excess of effort’ infers that Jack the Ripper was vicious, brutal and went over the top. The victims were the ‘poorest of poor’ so the murderer was not trying to rob the victims. Since there was ‘no adequate motive in the shape of plunder’ it suggests that Jack the Ripper committed these crimes because he or she enjoyed killing. However the source describes the work of Jack the Ripper as the ‘work of a demented being’ which suggests that Jack the Ripper was mad. 2. Study Sources A, B and C Does the evidence of Source C support the evidence of Sources A and B about the Ripper murders? Explain your answer. (8) Sources A and C comment on how the victims were poor so money was not the murderer’s motive. Also the details of how the victim was murdered in source C supports the fact, in source A, that the murder was peculiar and had extra-ordinary violence. However source C is more detailed on the method of murder whereas source A is general describing the murder but not the method. Source C supports source A to a very little extent. Sources B and C agree on the fact that the murder was committed with the use of a knife – ‘In the neck there was a long incision’ ‘cutting the...
