Most of the student’s objective of going to college is that finally after completing their secondary studies they will get admissions in colleges and get freedom to do what they cannot do in the presence of parents smoking being one of them. Some students do not need to smoke to fit in peers but the study wanted to find out how many college students actually smoke while taking classes between engineering classes and liberal arts classes. The purpose of the study is to find if one class smokes more. The mode of data collection was by asking the students by way ...

In this analysis, the association between injury rate and number of hours worked will be investigated. Under this test, it is assumed that the observations are independent. A correlation test is the most preferred as it will reveal whether there is a corresponding increase (or decrease) in the number of injuries as compared to the number of hour worked. Regression could also be used in place of correlation as it would show how the number on injuries (dependent variable) changes as a result of increased number of working hours (independent variable).

Standard Deviation, Hypotheses, and Standard Error

... Deviation, Hypotheses, and Standard Error Answers: Hurlburt (2001) defines standard deviation as a number representing how scattered or how closely bunched a set of data is around the mean. It is the most commonly used measure of variability because it is claimed as the most reliable. Mathematically speaking, it is the positive square root of the average squared deviations from the mean of the distribution. By the knowledge of standard deviation, one can describe a set of data as homogeneous (closely bunched) or heterogeneous (scattered). Likewise, researchers use standard deviation to verify normal distribution. By the empirical rule, if a set of data is normal, about 68% of the data lie...
