QNT 561 Week 4 Individual Assignment - Descriptive Statistics and Interpretation
http://hwcampus.com/shop/descriptive-statistics-and-interpretation/

Create a Microsoft® Excel® spreadsheet with the two variables from your learning team's research paper. That is, create a hypothetical database that includes quazi or hypothetical data for the two variables (one independent and one dependent). You should have two columns of data and several records of data for each person/observation in your sample. Please ask me if you have any questions about this part of the assignment. The database you or another team member create will ultimately be your team research paper dataset for this section of the learning team research paper assignments due later.
Analyze the data with Microsoft® Excel® or other statistical tool(s), including:

• Histogram for each numeric variable (interval and ratio data)
• Bar chart for each attribute (non numeric) variable (nominal and ordinal data)
• Scatter plot if the data contains two numeric variables (two interval or ratio variables)
Determine the appropriate descriptive statistics. Nominal and ordinal data are more limited compared to interval and ratio data.
• For normally distributed numeric data use the mean and standard deviation.
• For significantly skewed numeric data use the median and interquartile range.
Use the Individual Methodology Findings Template to complete the descriptive statistics. Include the completed template with your paper. You will complete a section for each of your two variables.

Use the Descriptive Statistics and Interpretation Example to develop an interpretation of the descriptive statistics.
Format your paper consistent with APA guidelines.
Submit both the spreadsheet and the completed Individual Methodology Findings Template to the...
