Nam e Jasmin Rodriguez Course HLT-362V Date 8/20/2018 Section Module 2 – Exercise 26 1. Plot the frequency distribution for “Age at Enrollment” by hand or by using SPSS. 2. How would you characterize the skewness of the distribution in Question 1—positively skewed, negatively skewed, or approximately normal? Provide a rationale for your answer. Descriptives Statistic Std. Error Age Mean 53.80 1.481
3. Compare the original skewness statistic and Shapiro-Wilk statistic with those of the smaller dataset (n = 15) for the variable “Age at First Arrest.” How did the statistics change, and how would you explain these differences?
