I need some sort of title cover type something phase III

Abstract Blah blah blah I got allowed to procrastinate :) I take it phase II is a sort of rough draft for the final part.

NOTE: Focus on Introduction and DATA GRAPHS and summary STATISTICS Introduction

Understanding the characteristics and tendencies of a population has always been a common use of statistics.

The problem of this study and why it is important. general topic; characteristics of the population studied. Next paragraph should give some theoretical basis for the research, (Population, sample, statistics. Purpose and hypothesis, for the 6 questions. and why i made them (mention the method used) \ hypo 1, Before analyzing the data from this study I hypothesised that there would be a relationship between a person's height, weight, ring size and shoe size. I based this on the fact that larger individuals, height and weight wise, would be more likely to have larger fingers and feet. I also hypothesised that there would be a difference in gross income based on gender because previous studies have shown this. Party, a: Democrats more likely to say yes. b: Democrats more likely to say yes. c: republicans more likely to say yes. handedness a: death, independent. b: water, independent. 5: republicans more likely to join tea party. 6: Are people who are students less likely to work 30 hours or more. students are likely to work fewer hours. We also studied the which I predictied describe method enough to connect it to the hypotheses why it was done and my hypotheses

Design How it was done. PHASE III

Materials The data was collected using a simple two-page survey consisting of 23 questions which can be found in the appendix. The reliability of the data collected is heavily dependent on the honestly of the participants. PHASE III Procedure asking people, gather database, take sample. PHASE III systematic 1 in k. N=2628 n=50 k=52 randint(1,52,1)=16 Results This is where my graphs go. several variables are not graphed/mentioned because they were irrelevant to the questions being asked. note: This is not everything because we haven't learned everything we need yet. I'll simply restate the hypotheses until i know if the data confirms or disproves it.

I predicted that there would be a relationship between a person's height, weight, ring size and shoe size. In order to get the graph I used the stat plot function and took a picture of the result.To get the sample statistics, I entered the data into a TI-84 graphing calculator and used the 1-var Stats command. The results are listed bellow. Height

1. Gender: □ Male □ Female 2. Ethnicity: □ White □ Black □ Hispanic □ Other 3. Age (years): 4. Height (in inches, so 5 ft 7 inches would be 67): 5. Weight (pounds): 6. Hours worked per week: 7.
