Questionnaire Data - which stats test

Hi All,

i need some quick stats advice for SPSS please.

I have questionnaire responses from several thousand individuals. An example of a question is: do you participate in sport an exercise in your own time (response option 1) or during working hours (response option 2)?

I would like to explore if there are difference between male and female respondents - i.e. are men more likely to exercise during the working day than women.

Which the best test to employ here?

Thanks in advance

Focus on the beginning of the first post, where various tests are listed. Then you can look them up separately in Wikipedia or an introductory statistics textbook. Is there a Layman's guide? Yes: an introductory statistics textbook. One example:

Freedman, D., Pisani, R., & Purves, R. (2007). Statistics (4th ed). New York: W. W. Norton & Company.
