Investigating the Dynamics of Tourists' Satisfaction at Yellowstone National Park: An Analytical Exploration of Travel Party Size, Marital Status, and Familiarity for an SPSS assignment. This study aims to answer critical questions regarding tourists' satisfaction by examining the influence of variables such as travel party size and marital status, as well as the interaction between familiarity and marital status on their revitalization experiences, utilizing robust SPSS analyses.
1. The Effect of Travel Party Size on Satisfaction
- Travel party size can significantly influence tourists' perceptions and evaluations of their Yellowstone experiences. This study aims to investigate the effect of travel party size on tourists' satisfaction.
- Null Hypothesis: Travel party size does not significantly affect tourist satisfaction.
- Research Hypothesis: Travel party size has a significant effect on tourist satisfaction.
- Assumptions, including normality, homogeneity of variance, and independence between travel party sizes, were examined.
|Travel Party Size||Mean||Standard Deviation||Kolmogorov-Smirnov test||P-value|
|With someone else||4.47||0.747||0.340||< 0.001|
Table: Travel Party Size Data
- As normality was violated, the Kruskal-Wallis H test was used to assess the impact of travel party size on satisfaction.
- The Kruskal-Wallis H test revealed that travel party size did not significantly affect tourist satisfaction (p = 0.106).
- There was no significant difference in satisfaction levels between individual and group travelers, indicating that both can enjoy their Yellowstone trip equally.
2. The Effect of Marital Status on Satisfaction
- This study investigates whether marital status has a significant effect on tourists' satisfaction during their Yellowstone trips.
- Null Hypothesis: Marital status does not significantly affect tourist satisfaction.
- Research Hypothesis: Marital status has a significant effect on tourist satisfaction.
|Marital Status||Mean||Standard Deviation||Kolmogorov-Smirnov test||P-value|
|Married-no child||4.38||0.807||0.281||< 0.001|
|Married with children||4.53||0.620||0.363||< 0.001|
Table: Marital Status Data
- As normality was violated, the Kruskal-Wallis H test was used to assess the impact of marital status on satisfaction.
- The Kruskal-Wallis H test showed that marital status significantly affects tourist satisfaction (p = 0.019).
- Marital status significantly influences tourists' satisfaction levels, with married tourists with children showing the highest satisfaction.
3. The Effect of Familiarity and Marital Status on Revitalization
- This study examines the interaction between familiarity and marital status and its impact on tourist revitalization.
- Null Hypothesis: Marital status and familiarity do not significantly interact to affect tourist revitalization.
- Research Hypothesis: Marital status and familiarity interact to affect tourist revitalization.
- Assumptions included random and independent sampling, equality of variance, and approximate normal distribution of data.

Table: Two-way ANOVA Results
- A two-way ANOVA was conducted to investigate the interaction between familiarity and marital status on tourist revitalization.
- The analysis showed no significant interaction effect between familiarity and marital status on tourist revitalization. However, marital status significantly affected tourist revitalization.
- Familiarity and marital status do not significantly interact to affect tourist revitalization. Marital status alone significantly influences how tourists feel about themselves after the trip.
By delving into the intricacies of these factors and conducting robust statistical analyses, we gain valuable insights into the drivers of tourist satisfaction and revitalization at Yellowstone, facilitating targeted marketing and experience enhancement strategies.
