5.  The following data represent the number of times that a sample of residents in nursing homes who were aged 80 or older fell during a 12 month period.  
 3  3  4  1  0  2  0  1  2  0
 4  0  0  3  2  6  0  0  0  1
 0  2  1  0  1  1  3  2  1  0
 1  3  1  1  0  4  6  7  0  1
 Construct a frequency distribution for this set of data, showing the absolute frequencies, relative frequencies, and cumulative relative frequencies.
6.  Using information from the frequency distribution in Exercise 5, answer the following:
 a.  What percentage of the nursing home residents had at least 1 fall?
 b.  What number of falls was the most frequent in this sample?
 c.  What number of falls was least frequent in this sample?
 d.  What percentage of residents had 2 or fewer falls?
 e.  What is the total size of the sample?
 f.  Are there any outliers in this data set?
7.  Would it be advantageous to group the data in Exercise 5 before constructing a frequency distribution?  Why or why not?
8.  Draw a graphic of the frequency distribution of the data in Exercise 5 using StatCrunch.  Copy and Paste your graphic from StatCrunch into your Word document submission.  Describe the shape of the frequency distribution in terms of modality and skewness.  Is the number of falls normally distributed?
9.  The following set of numbers represent the scores of 30 psychiatric inpatients on a widely used measure of depression.  What are the mean, median, and mode for these data?
 41  27  32  24  21  28  22  25  35  27
 31  40  23  27  29  33  42  30  26  30
 27  39  26  34  28  38  29  36  24  37
 If the values of the mean, median, and mode are not the same, discuss what this suggests about the shape of the distribution.  Construct a Graphic of the distribution of this data using StatCrunch to prove your point.  Copy and Paste your graphic from StatCrunch into your Word document submission.
10.  The following 10 data values are systolic blood pressure readings.  Compute the mean, range, standard deviation, and variance for these data using StatCrunch.  Copy and Paste your work from StatCrunch into your Word document submission.
 130  125  160  120  170
 120  150  140  160  140
11.  For each blood pressure in Exercise 10, compute a Z score.
12.  The following data designate whether patients in two groups (experimental and control) complied with a medication regimen. The experimental group participated in an intervention designed to promote perceived mastery over health events:
  Control group

 Using StatCrunch, construct a contingency table for these data, computing both row and column percentages for each of the four cells. Copy and Paste your StatCrunch table into your Word document submission.
13.  Below are the values for diastolic and systolic blood pressure for 10 people:
 Diastolic:  90  80  90 78  76  78 80  70  76 74
 Systolic:  130 126  140  118 114  112  120 110  114  116
 Using StatCrunch, construct a scatterplot that shows the relationship between the two variables.  Copy and Paste your work from StatCrunch into your Word document submission. Verbally describe the direction and magnitude of the relationship.
14.  Compute the correlation coefficient (Pearson’s r) in StatCrunch to summarize the relationship for the data presented in Exercise 13.  How accurate was your description?  
15.  Below are Global carbon dioxide concentrations and the measured change in Global temperature (Temperature Anomaly) for an 11 year period in our recent past:

Using StatCrunch, construct a scatterplot that shows the relationship between the two variables (carbon dioxide concentrations and the measured change in Global temperature). Calculate the rvalue using StatCrunch.  Copy and Paste your work from StatCrunch into your Word document submission. Verbally describe the direction and magnitude of the relationship you find.  What does this tell you about Global warming?
