Using data visualization to better determine which measures of central tendency and spread you should use.

Using the STATES10 data set:

1. Generate measures of central tendency and spread. Report the measures of central tendency and spread, and provide a scatterplot for the following variables. If using SPSS, provide a box plot as well. For scatterplots, place STATEID on the X-Axis.

A. PCI_15 (Per Capita Income: 2015)

B. CRS63 (Prisoners under Sentence of Death: 2008)

C. HrtDRT17 (Heart Disease Mortality Rate: 2017)

For each of variables, report which measure of central tendency (pick 1) and spread (pick 1) do you think would work best based on the available information?

2. Using the GSS2018 dataset, what is the proper graph (scatterplot, histogram, bar chart)-make sure to provide it, and report what you think is the correct measure of central tendency. Why?

A. REALRINC (R’s Income in constant $)

B. PARTNERS5 (How many sex partner’s R has in last 5 year)

C. RELITEN (Strength of Affiliation)

3. Using the GSS2018 dataset, what is the proper graph (scatterplot, histogram, bar chart-make sure to provide it), for:

A. HAPPY (*General Happiness*) by SEX (*Respondent’s Sex*)

B. ANCESTRS (Believe in Supernatural Power of Deceased Ancestors) by SEX (*Respondent’s Sex*)
