Investigation 30: Carrying Out Your Own Analysis of Data

Investigation 30.Using the data from Table 2, data from the references in Appendix 1, data from one or more of the four data sets listed below, and/or data you collect on your own, pose a question, gather relevant data, complete an analysis of that data, and propose an answer to your question. Although this case study’s introduction to data and to data analysis is limited to just a few types of visualizations, a few ways to summarize data, a few ways to model data, and one way to draw conclusions from data, your background is sufficient to use the texts in Appendix 1 and your textbook to explore other ways to visualize, to summarize, to model, and to draw conclusions from data. Be adventurous!
