1. Consider some of the results that are likely to come from the Harvard Nurses'
Health Study over the next 10 to 20 years. What types of results do you think will
be most important? Do you think the findings will alter the way you live your life?
2. Expl
In this unit, you will investigate the normal probability curve (the bell curve). Many variables,
such as height and weight are normally distributed. This means, for example, that if you were
to collect 10,000 female adult human heights, the histogram of
In Unit 5, there are three main topics (problem types): describing correlations, measuring
correlations, and evaluating here scatterplots. You will be exposed to all three topics by either
formulating a response (main post) or commenting on a classmates r
What story does this visual display (graph) below tell? Describe the variables that are
being compared. (Hint: There are three). Do you think that this is an accurate and fair
description of the data? Is this graph clear or misleading? Why?

Unit 1 Review Quiz
What is a population, what is a sample, and what is the difference between them?
What is a population?
A.
A population is a characteristic found by summarizing raw data.
B.
A population is the range of values that a parameter is likely
Before I can relate the three measures of center, mean, median, and mode, with the levels of
measurement, nominal, ordinal, interval, and ratio I believe that I should properly define the terms.
Mean: The sum of all values divided by the total number of v
What is the name of the dataset? Rainfall
What does each observation (row) in the dataset represent? Each row shows the name of the city the
amount of rain inches the city has received, the day of the week the temperature and the amount of

During Unit 8, you will learn about how to use a sample statistic (such as a sample mean) to
estimate the value of a population parameter (such as the true population mean). For example,
you can estimate the true mean weight of all newborn babies in the e
During this unit, you will learn about many different types of graphs, which graphs are
most appropriate for specific data, and when graphs are misleading. For instance, a
graph can misrepresent the data if it does not provide a proper representation of t
To better understand this unit, I began with the word theory. According to
Blais & Hayes (2011) a theory is a supposition or system of ideas that is proposed
to explain a given phenomenon (p.99). Honestly, I must admit that I found this

For my final discussion I chose to discuss legalized euthanasia. I am in favor of legalizing
euthanasia, probably because I work in the medical field and see people suffering all the time.
Even after analyzing the main arguments, such as it being murder,
The name of the data set that I choose is Tobacco in Movies. Each row in the dataset
represents an observation that makes up this specific study. In each row there is first a specific
movie, the production company who made the movie, the amount of minutes
In statistics, graphs are used to describe as well as summarize data in a manner thats easily understandable,
especially when it comes to reproducing and discussing the presented information in words. However, graphs should
be labeled appositely to make t
For this discussion, I chose the exercise #26 on page 248, titled Calories and Infant Mortality.
Calories and Infant Mortality
Consider the following table showing mean daily caloric intake (all residents) and infant mortality rate
(per 1,000 births) for
