based on the population and sample surveys. In universe surveys, information is collected from every member of the population.

What sorts of statistics (e.g., graphical, non-graphical, hypotheses, correlation, averages, etc.) were used in the report? The statistics from the report was presented in maps with percentages, histograms, line graphs, bar graphs, tables and charts, averages and non-graphical comparison data. How was the data distributed? The data was distributed using the indicators. First the data was compared by the current year to the previous year. Then race and gender. Then the data was distributed based on subcategories. How are distribution and variation important in any statistical study? In any statistical study, distribution and variation is extremely. An important characteristic of any set of data is the variation in the data. In some data sets, the data values are concentrated closely near the mean; in other data sets, the data values are more widely spread out from the mean. The variance looks at all the data points and then determines their distribution.

    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.
