Q:1 Using the table of random numbers, draw a sample random sample (number of observations=15). Discuss the step by step procedure you used to draw the simple random sample. For the number of sales calls, calculate the sample mean and standard deviation for your sample. Calculate the proportion of women in the industry and a 95% confidence interval for the proportion.
Step 1: List elements of population and assign each element a random number.
Step 2: Start with the column six and row one. The number is 14491. Use the second and third numbers starting with 44. Random No. | Sample Space | Sales Calls X | Male/Female | 14491 | 44 | 38 | M | 25170 | 51 | 28 | M | 23392 | 33 | 41 | M | 36306 | 63 | 41 | F | 17407 | 74 | 34 | F | 16154 | 61 | 40 | M | 72064 | 20 | 37 | M | 53169 | 31 | 33 | F | 27909 | 79 | 33 | M | 35681 | 56 | 34 | F | 83371 | 33 | 41 | M | 77868 | 78 | 38 | F | 36797 | 67 | 37 | M | 34481 | 44 | 38 | M | 12584 | 25 | 38 | M |

...Microsoft | What Are the Options? | A Study of Recidivism among our Youth | | | December 4, 2012 | | Abstract In this paper I will be going over the study of our neighborhoods impact on criminals primarily focusing on the reentry rate. Also known as Recidivism When exploring such, there are key issues we must pay close attention to, and that’s the group that’s impacted the most- young black males. Secondly we must review the recidivism rate and how they play a role on the neighborhoods where prisoners return. Third we will determine whether race plays a role in certain areas where the recidivism rates are increasing. Lastly we will discuss several implications that could possibly reduce these rates. Introduction: A criminal career is a sequence of offenses during a period of an individual’s life. This repetitive criminal behavior is called recidivism, and indicates the proportion that becomes involved in criminal behavior, at what age criminal behaviors begins, how long the criminal career lasts and the number of offenses typically committed during the course of the career (Farrington, 1992) Also defined as an estimate of the percentage of released prisoner who commit another offense. There are three different measures of recidivism according to the Bureau of Justice Statistics. These are rearrests, reconviction, and reincarceration. Rearrests is described as any arrest that was reported to state identification bureau after release from a......

Job satisfaction is important for theses organizations large or small because it makes the aspects of the job easy for employees. Analyzing the data within these surveys is to find the overall job satisfaction using qualitative and quantitative variables. Introduction A word wide study of job satisfaction has been assembled by a large organization called American Intellectual Union (AIU). I have been chosen to be a part of this massive global undertaking. I will be analyzing the data from this study and results survey using AIU’s data set. Chosen Variables In examining the data set and results of AIU’s employees I chose to analyze the positions of the employees as my qualitative variables and the intrinsic job satisfaction as my quantitative variables. I chose to analyze these two specific variables because as an hourly or salary paid employee their internal job satisfaction is very important to know. It is best to understand the job satisfaction of employee position within the organization to better the work environment. Qualitative and Quantitative Variables Using qualitative and quantitative variables you have to know and understand the difference between the two variable or the results would not add up. Quantitative data is data......

... Statistics Dr. P. A. Williams What is my meaning of Statistics? My meaning or definition of statistics is that of its base word itself. Stat. Along with other elements that would make it a definition or an opinion of sort, but I’m sure that I won’t be far from what others may say it means or what they think it means. Stat is defined as with no delay; at once. When most of us think about statistics, we think of comparisons, of two or more entities but ones balance might be more or less as well as winning and losing. There is still that scale that separates the two where one is ahead of the other. The people analyzing and drawing conclusions are getting this information have to get it out to those that follow up on whatever the subject may be fast because people want to know. It’s said that Statistics is the science of planning studies and experiments, obtaining data, and then organizing, summarizing, presenting, analyzing, interpreting, and drawing conclusions based on data according to (Pearson’s Elementary Statistics Using Microsoft Excel by, Mario F. Triola). This is the same as I said without including all of the other tools needed, or used in Statistics. Television shows are another example being on statistic radar so to speak. You have so many television shows that are out right now, but how do we know which one is the most watched? What if you want to know which show makes the most money? As I......

...Statistics is a powerful resource to determine important information. Statistics is used to determine whether the outcome of an experiment is the result of a relationship between specific factors or merely the result of chance. This concept is commonly used in the medical field to test drugs and vaccines and to determine causal factors of disease. Statistical also is used in the fields of psychology, environmental biology and other disciplines in which research is conducted through experimentation. Statistics are the mathematical calculations of numeric sets or populations that are manipulated to produce a probability of the occurrence of an event(Sullivan, 2003). A sample is used, and the results of the calculation are applied to an entire population. For example, it might be said that 80 percent of all adults in the United States drive a car. It would be difficult to ask each adult in the U.S. whether he or she drives a car, so a random number of people could be questioned, and the data could be statistically analyzed and generalized to apply to all adults in the U.S. This paper it shows three examples on how statistics relates to current life. Using the knowledge that I have obtained from this course, I will demonstrate techniques we have discussed in class to answer these questions. In 1798, Henry Cavendish measured the density of the earth using an instrument called a torsion balance. While the density is obviously not uniform, the value of the mean density is......

...The article I chose suggests that Roman Catholics in the United States hope that the next pope could be younger and lead the church in a more liberal way regarding issues, such as birth control and same-sex marriage. The statistics is based on the latest New York Times/CBS News telephone poll conducted on landlines and cellphones from February 23 to 27 with 1,585 adults nationwide. Three-fourths of interviewers thought Pope Benedict should step down because he did a bad job dealing with sexual abuse. The poll suggested that many American Catholics are not confident about the church’s hierarchy since the bishops and cardinals do not understand their needs. The sample of telephone poll was randomly selected to ensure that each region of the country has almost same share of all telephone numbers, so it seems justified geographically. However, there is uncertainty in the survey because the margin of sampling error is plus or minus 4% for the 580 Catholics. An effective way to reduce the margin of error is to increase the sample size. There is also nonresponse error in the survey because some people do not answer calls from strangers, or refuse to answer the poll. In addition, due to selection bias, the opinions of those who agreed to be interviewed only reflect a certain part of the population. The article did well in analyzing from a series of data, mainly on the percentage of sample size. For example, the poll showed that 40 percent thought the pope is......

...Statistics Business Jason Garrett Qnt/351  YOHANNES MARIAM 5/4/2015 After review of the text and online research I have come to the understanding of Statistics in business it’s the most widely used quantitative method in business. This method has a lot to do with the accuracy the business collects of the information to review and help make the best decision based on these findings. It is concerned with extracting the best possible information from data in order to aid decision making. As Define statistics a branch of mathematics dealing with the collection, analysis, interpretation, and presentation of masses of numerical data Identify different types and levels of statistics. Nominal Measurement      There are handful of types and levels of statistics, Nominal measurements, “In social research, variables measured at a nominal level include gender, race, religious affiliation, college major, and birthplace. Ordinal measurement, in this classification, the numbers assigned to objects represent the rank order (1st, 2nd, 3rd etc.) of the entities measured. The numbers are called ordinals. The variables are called ordinal variables or rank variables. Comparisons of greater and less can be made, in addition to equality and inequality” ("Level Of Measurements," 2015).  Interval measurements, “the numbers assigned to objects have all the features of ordinal measurements, and in addition equal differences between measurements represent equivalent intervals.

They range in size from the smallest birds on earth to several quite large species—in length from 2 to 8.5 inches and in weight from 0.06 to 0.7 ounce. Hummingbirds flap their wings from 12 to 90 times per second (depending on the species) and are the only birds able to fly backwards. Normal flight speed for hummingbirds is 25 to 30 mph, but they can dive at speeds of around 60 mph.

...Part I. Data Description. 1.1. Original Data. Due to the recent restructure of the company that resulted in personnel redundancy, the top management of JSC “TESS” * requested to investigate the average level of the job satisfaction (JSL) of the employees. To carry out the analysis we have collected 203 questionnaires (Appendix _) as a sample of total population. Total population: 1200 employees. The main objectives of the analysis are: * To compare the mean JSL with the top-management statement; * To find out if there is a significant difference in mean JSL between the groups of employees with different work experience at the company. * To investigate if the mean JSL differs between the branches of the company. The data set used for the analysis: Variable | How the variable is measured | Branch | Branches of the company:1= TESS-Nizhnevartovsk, TESS-Kogalym2= TESS Head Office, TESS-Surgut3=TESS-Tyumen, TESS-Khanty-Mansiysk | Number | Number of the respondent | Work_Exp | Work Experience in JSC “TESS”:1= 2 year or less 2= more than 2 years | JSL | Job Satisfaction Level:Ratings from 1 to 5 where 1= very unsatisfied, 5= very satisfied and 0= no answer/blank | 1.2.

...Descriptive and Inferential Statistics ________________________________________ Statistics can be broken into two basic types. The first is known as descriptive statistics. This is a set of methods to describe data that we have collected. Ex. Of 350 randomly selected people in the town of Luserna, Italy, 280 people had the last name Nicolussi. An example of descriptive statistics is the following statement : "80% of these people have the last name Nicolussi." Ex. On the last 3 Sundays, Henry D. Carsalesman sold 2, 1, and 0 new cars respectively. An example of descriptive statistics is the following statement : "Henry averaged 1 new car sold for the last 3 Sundays." These are both descriptive statements because they can actually be verified from the information provided. The second type of statistics in inferential statistics. This is a set of methods used to make a generalization, estimate, prediction or decision. Ex. Of 350 randomly selected people in the town of Luserna, Italy, 280 people had the last name Nicolussi. An example of inferential statistics is the following statement : "80% of all people living in Italy have the last name Nicolussi." We have no information about all people living in Italy, just about the 350 living in Luserna. We have taken that information and generalized it to talk about all people living in Italy. The easiest way to tell that this statement is not descriptive is by trying to verify it based upon the information provided. Ex....

Statistics Unit I Ip

...Unit 1 - Fundamentals of Statistics Abstract To examine and analyze the results of a survey by focusing on the qualitative and quantitative data. Introduction Data collection is extremely important. Many people use some form of data collection to help support an argument, for research, for planning purposes, etc. People use data collection for many different reasons. However when using data collection one must ensure that the data collected is accurate and unbiais. Chosen Variables The variables that I chose to analyze was gender and intrinsic. This data shows job satisifaction ratings from the male’s point of view and the female’s point of view. As a female in corporate America I was very interested to see how much of a difference would there be when it comes to job satisfaction from each gender’s point of view. We often hear that sometimes men are giving a better advantage over women so I would like to analyze the data to see if there is a significant difference between the two genders. Difference in variable types Qualitative variables and quantitative variables vary because of how it measured. Qualitative variables tend to have a greater influence on the outcome because of its ability to affect other parameters of the study. While quantitative variables are purely mathematical data or data that can be measured.. Qualitative research is typically suggested in earlier phases of research since the research may not know EXACTLY what he or she......
