Statistical Project

General Directions:

You will need to conduct a statistical study following the Basic Steps in a Statistical Study (PowerPoint 5A) and the Guidelines for a Statistical Study (PowerPoint 5B). The paper should be at least 3 pages in length (of text) including all data sets, tables, graphs and charts you created. You will need to apply as many of the statistical concepts we learned in class. You will be graded (primarily) on how many specific learning outcomes you discuss and apply to your statistical study that we have been discussing in class. I will not focus on spelling, punctuation or grammar (as much).

Remember: Each project is very different! You will not be able to apply every learning objective we discussed. You will need to apply and discuss as many as possible!

Specific Directions:

1. You will need to conduct a statistical study in which you will need to define a population and determine what you wish to study about the population.

2. You will then need to collect data from a sample taken from the population (you will need multiple quantitative and qualitative data sets)

3. Create all possible tables, graphs and charts for your data sets and calculate as many summary measures that apply.

4. Write up your statistical study (at least 3 pages text, then include all tables, charts, graphs,a¦)

Your paper should apply and discuss as many of the following as possible:

Populations, Parameters, Statistics, Samples, Type of Sampling Procedure, any Potential Selection/Participation Biases, Type of Study, Treatment/Control Groups, Placeboas, Placebo Effect, Blinding, Frequency/Relative/Cumulative Frequency Tables, Quantitative/Qualitative Data, Graphs, Charts, Correlation, Scatter Plots, Measures of Center, Symmetry/Skewed, Measures of Variation, 5 Number Summary, Z-scores, Percentiles, Statistic Significance, Confidence Intervals, Percents/Probability
