A counseling psychologist administers the BDI to a sample of adult clients at the   
community clinic where he works. The population mean for adults in the general population on the BDI is 6.3. The table below shows the scores the counselor has collected. Using the table, enter the data into a new SPSS file and conduct a single-sample t-test to evaluate whether these BDI scores are significantly different from those of the general population of adults.
 
The steps will be the same as the ones you have been practicing in Part 1 of the assignment—the only difference is that you are now responsible for creating the data file as well. Remember to name and define your variables under the “Variable View,” then return to the “Data View” to enter the data.
