1 an observational study Can the data be generalized to a broader population ? No, The mothers were 94 healthy volunteers of similar age If infants born to smoking mothers in the study turned out to have lower birth weight than those born to non-smoking mothers, could this be used as proof that smoking lowers birth weight. No, because it is not appropriate for cause and effect inference. 2a 2b Center: HS<MS<NS Spreads: MS > HS > NS HS symmetric, MS skewed, NS symmetric There are no outliers.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
