**Hypothesis:** Men are more likely to vote than women.

fre vote.

RECODE vote (1=1) (2=0) INTO vote_dummy.

VARIABLE LABELS vote_dummy ‘voted last election dummy’.

VALUE LABELS vote_dummy 0’no’ 1’yes’.

fre gndr.

RECODE gndr (1=0) (2=1) INTO gndr_dummy.

VARIABLE LABELS gndr_dummy ‘Gender dummy variable’.

VALUE LABELS gndr_dummy 0’male’ 1’female’.

**Exp(b1)**: The odds of voting among women are 0.871 times as low as among men. The odds of voting among women are [(0.871-1)100=12,9] % lower than among men.

**Exp(b0)**: The odds of voting among men are 3.012.

**Exp(b0)*Exp(b1)**: The odds of voting among women are (3.012*0.871).

**b1**: The log odds of voting among women is by 0,139 lower than among men. The log odds of voting among women are [(-0,139-1)100] % lower among men.**b0**: The log odds of voting among men are 1.103.**b0+b1**: The log odds of voting among women are (-0,139+1.103).

**Conclusion: **The p-value is higher than 0,05, so we do not have evidence to conclude that gender has an effect on voting.
