1.15  a) The relevant population of the Iraq war poll is the entire U.S. population. This poll  was conducted with the specific purpose of measuring the perception of the American people of  the Bush Administration’s justification of the United States in invading Iraq in 2003. b) The variable of interest is the American people’s view of the Bush  Administration’s justification of the Iraq War. It is a qualitative, ordinal variable measuring  support for the Bush Administration’s justification against those who do not support the Iraq war.  It is an ordinal variable in that the pollsters were interested in whether the American people  believed the United States was justified in invading Iraq. c) The sample was the 2000 individuals who were contacted by pollsters using a  random telephone dialing survey. d) The inference of interest to the pollster was the measure of support of the Bush  Administration’s justification. e) The method of data collection employed was survey. f) This sample is likely to be representative of the American people’s view of the  Iraq war as all 2000 individuals were asked the same question. No information is given about  the number of people who declined to answer the question. 1.18 a) Flight capability is a qualitative, nominal. Flight capability cannot be measured  numerically, either you are flight capable or you are not. This makes the variable qualitative

    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.
