Variable   Name in the Data Set

Variable   Type

Description

Qualitative   or Quantitative

Variable 1:

Socioeconomic

Marital   status

Variable 2:

Expenditure

Total amount   of annual expenditures

Variable 3:

Expenditure

Total   amount of annual expenditure

Data Set Description and Method Used for Analysis:

Briefly describe the data set, using information provided with data set and write up in Assignment #2. Also describe what method(s) (i.e., free web applets, Excel, TI Calculator) you used to analyze the data.

1. Confidence Interval Analysis: For one expenditure variable, select and run the appropriate method for estimating a parameter, based on a statistic (i.e., confidence interval method) and complete the following table (Note: Format follows Kozak outline):

Table 2: Confidence Interval Information and Results

2. Hypothesis Testing: Using the second expenditure variable (with socioeconomic variable as the grouping variable for making two groups), select and run the appropriate method for making decisions about two parameters relative to observed statistics (i.e., two sample hypothesis testing method) and complete the following table (Note: Format follows Kozak outline):
