Style for Research Reports in Statistics

Abstract The statistical analysis of our sample surveys shows us that there are many different opinions and outcomes that come with different people taking a survey. Bar Graphs and Box and whisker plots were used to illustrate the shapes and to compare the data between the different results of the sample size of the surveys. The results obtained from the analysis were used to discuss the datas sample size surveys results.

Introduction We use statistics a lot in todays century to have a better understanding on different events and situations. We use statistics to help us with political data and also for data regarding any information where people are trying to find the statistics of their certain outcomes. The survey samples are used to create an understanding of the population to help researchers have a better understanding by creating an analysis of the data collected. The data will be examined to show the differences and similarities between each survey taken.

Method Participants The participants that took place in these surveys were given a survey by students of Mr. Brian Jeans classroom. Each student was required to have random people fill out each survey fully to

where every answer was filled in. After the student had all ten of their surveys filled out, they were required to enter the data on a website were all the data would be collected and recorded for the use of this project for each student, that way there would be a big enough sample size for each student to work with.

Materials Each person that took a survey had the same questions given to them. The people who took the surveys can be described as materials because they were the main material which helped us collect our data. The use of the internet was helpful in retrieving the population sample data for the survey. Also the use of the calculator to help create graphs, solve problems, and to help find my sample size of 60 surveys by using the calculators random integer key to get each survey randomly.

Procedures The first step was collecting each surveys data randomly by creating a sample size of 60 surveys by using the calculators random integer key, randInt. This gave me my 60 random sample survey numbers, that way I only use those surveys data only for my project. After having my sample surveys, I went ahead and starting collecting data from sample surveys of how many males took the survey and how many females took the survey and created a bar graph that shows the difference between the two. Also I created a box and whisker plot by collecting the data of male and females certain hours that they work per week. The same procedures were done with finding

the results for the Health Care Bill being passed and whether or not people think President Obama will be reelected for president again. All it took was a little time, patience, and correct data to be recorded.

Results

Bar Graph for Obama to be reelected The results for this bar graph show that the females have a bigger sample size then the men, but the females are more in favor of President Obama not to be reelected. The males are also more in favor of Obama not being reelected. This shows how similarities between the males and females towards this question of the survey.

Bar Graph for Gender

The bar graph shown above shows the difference between how many males took the survey and how many females took the survey regarding to my sample size. It shows that twenty-three males and thirty-seven females have taken the survey out of a random sample size of sixty.

The box and whisker blot shown above shows that males have a greater percentage of working more hours than females do. The females second whisker is not there because minx and Q1 are both zero. The males did have a smaller sample size with a lot of working hours, but the women had a lot of zeros on hours worked per week for their sample size creating their box and whisker plot to be on lower amount of hours worked side of the graph.

Bar Graph for Results on Health Care Bill

In the bar graph shown above the males seem to be leaning more towards the undecided answer for whether or not they agree with the health care bill being passed. The Females also seem to be leaning for towards the undecided answer as well. In second for the females is No on the Health Care Bill being passed, women do not agree with it. And in second place for the males the men are barely above with No as well on the Health Care Bill being passed.

Discussion The results of the statistical analysis showed us that there are many different opinions and outcomes that come with different people taking a survey. The box and whisker plot demonstrated a significant difference in male and females hours worked per week with this sample size. The same goes for the bar graphs of results on health care bill, the bar graph for Obama to be reelected, and the bar graph for gender. Each survey in the sample size had different results. This shows the many different results and answers people agree upon with certain questions relating to our current events. .
