that your calculations of the range, interquartile range, variance, and standard deviation match the Stata results. If there are discrepancies, figure out the source of the problem and fix it before continuing. Once you get consistent results, copy and paste the command and output from Stata to the appropriate place on the output sheet. Circle all of the relevant pieces of the Stata output. Part 2 Now look at a different variable—respondent’s age. This time, you can let Stata do most of the calculations. 6. Use Stata to find the mean, median, mode, range, interquartile range, variance, and standard deviation of the distribution of year of birth. To do this, type summarize age, detail and to find the mode use the tab command. Copy and paste the command and output from Stata to the appropriate place on the output sheet. Make sure to show the relevant statistics on the Stata output (either by circling them or by writing them in). 7. Interpret the mean and the standard deviation. The mean is 16.16, which shows that the average age is around 16, while the average deviation is 1.6, which shows that there is not very much deviation from the average.

### What students are saying

• 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.
