Part 2
1. Find the median from the following frequency table:
a .3
2. ID refers to the identification number of individuals. X row refers to quantified information
of variable X for each individual.
a. Find the mean for the data:
1.) 38
b. Find the deviation for each individual observation.
1.) 28
2.) 8
3.) 2
4.)12
5.) 22
c. Find the sample standard deviation for the data
1.) 17.2
3. A researcher wants to know whether a political science student, in general, has a higher
tolerance level than a UCM student. Conduct a significance test for the difference between
two means based on the following information.
UCM SAMPLE POLI SCI SAMPLE
N= 300 N = 1500
Sample mean = 7 Sample mean = 5
Sample standard deviation = 2.4 Sample standard deviation = 1.4
a. What is your alpha level and why?
1.) 0.05 is the standard alpha value because it does not allow the error in proving the null
hypothesis correct to exceed 5%, which is considered acceptable
b. What is your Ho and why?
1.) The Ho would be political science students not having a higher tolerance because it is
the null hypothesis that you want to reject.
c. What is your Ha and why?
1.)The Ha would be political science students having a higher tolerance because it is the
desired result.
d. What is Z for the difference between the two sample mean? Is this difference
statistically significant and why or why not?
e. Whats the exact pvalue for the zscore you calculated? Answer this question by
using Stata.
