Question

# Health care issues are receiving much attention in both academic and political arenas. A sociologist recently

conducted a survey of citizens over 60 years of age whose net worth is too high to qualify for Medicaid. The ages of 25 senior citizens were as follows:

1. Calculate the arithmetic **mean age** of the senior citizens. (Note: Use two decimal places, i.e. 12.34)

2. Determine the **median** of the senior ages.

3. Determine the **first quartile** of the ages of the senior citizens.

4. Determine the **third quartile** of the ages of the senior citizens.

5. Determine the **interquartile range** of the ages of the senior citizens.

6. Compute the **skewness**.

7. Compute the **Kurtosis**.

8. Calculate the **variance**. (Note: Use two decimal places, i.e. 12.34)

9. Calculate **standard deviation**. (Note: Use two decimal places, i.e. 12.34%)

10. Calculate the **coefficient of variation.**
