Unformatted text preview: 8.) considered in the formulation of the overall ranking. whether each of these distributions is approximately symmetric or skewed. Which, if any, of these distributions are skewed to the right? Which, if any, are skewed to the left? A.) Variables Peers Recruiters GPA GMAT Types of Data categorical categorical numerical numerical B.) Variables Peers Recruiters GPA GMAT Ordering categorical categorical N/A N/A Peers Reasoning Generally a peers rating uses a Likert scale where it is However because this observation was summarized an which by nature is deemed as ordinal, but now becaus Recruiters Reasoning The recruiters rated the programs reputation, which ag where the other variable where actual facts like GMAT This once previous Likert scale which by nature is deem they are now to be considered as nominal C.) Part 1: Histograms &amp; Frequency Table's for numeric variables Variables Peers Recruiters GPA GMAT Types of Data categorical categorical numerical numerical * All Histograms/ Frequency Tables are located below on the respective Tab a . Indicate the type of data for each of the 10 variables c. Create a frequency table and histogram for each of the numerical variables in this data set. Part 2: Shapes of Distributions Variables Peers Recruiters GPA GMAT symmetrical/skewed (left or right) N/A N/A symmetric skewed left ` and the values approximately t A histogram is left. A histogram and looks indicate whether the identified variable is nominal or ordinal. Explain your reasoning in each case. Accept Rate Salary Employed1 Employed2 Outofstate Enrollment numerical numerical numerical numerical numerical numerical Accept Rate Salary Employed1 Employed2 Outofstate Enrollment N/A N/A N/A N/A N/A N/A a opinion variable that is expressed numerically ranging from 1to5 nd made into an average by the pier 's school. This once previous Likert scale e of the conversion I believe they are now to be considered as nominal ain is an opinion which classifies this as an opinion variable variable for example. Therefore similar to the peers variable med as ordinal, but now because of the conversion I believe Accept Rate Salary Employed1 Employed2 Outofstate Enrollment numerical numerical numerical numerical numerical numerical b.
