good" health care. With this data, I am interested in determining how ones self perception of their general health varies by the number of times they visit the doctor using their health care plan. This data is informative because it provides statistics for all four categories. From what I can see, a possible hypothesis that could be drawn is that: People without medicare who tend to go to the doctor less believe themselves to be in "very good" health because they have no real indicators to determine otherwise. I acknowledge that this data includes other health care insurance plans which may skew my results. **Research quesion 2:** Does ones asthma condition have any influence on ones physical health? ```{r} ggplot(data=brfss2013, aes(x=asthma3, y=physhlth)) + geom_smooth(method="lm") + geom_point(size=0.5) + xlab("Asthma") + ylab("Physical Health") + ggtitle("Asthma on Physical Health") ``` Summary Statistics & Narrative: In this graph, we see that people with asthma report their physical health activity to be comparable to those without asthma. I hypothesize that this is because many individuals with asthma often utilize some treatment to alleviate their symptoms and allow them to lead healthy and active lives. I find it interesting that those who responded "NA" because they either did not know or refused to answer had much more variation in responses to the amount of physical health activity they engaged in. This data assists me in making the following observation: asthma may not have any affect on ones physical condition/activity.

    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.
