National Cancer Institute Data Excel Worksheet & Statistical Application Paper

Question Description

Need help with my Statistics question - I’m studying for my class.

There is often the requirement to evaluate descriptive statistics for data within the organization or for health care information. Every year the National Cancer Institute collects and publishes data based on patient demographics. Understanding differences between the groups based upon the collected data often informs health care professionals towards research, treatment options, or patient education.

Using the data on the "National Cancer Institute Data" Excel spreadsheet, calculate the descriptive statistics indicated below for each of the Race/Ethnicity groups. Refer to your textbook and the Topic Materials, as needed, for assistance in with creating Excel formulas.

Provide the following descriptive statistics:

  1. Measures of Central Tendency: Mean, Median, and Mode
  2. Measures of Variation: Variance, Standard Deviation, and Range (a formula is not needed for Range).
  3. Once the data is calculated, provide a 150-250 word analysis of the descriptive statistics on the spreadsheet. This should include differences and health outcomes between groups.

APA style is not required, but solid academic writing is expected.

This assignment uses a rubric. Please review the rubric prior to beginning the assignment to become familiar with the expectations for successful completion.

Measures of variation are not calculated. Analysis of the descriptive statistics for differences and health outcome recommendations between the groups is not included. Excel formulas are incomplete or incorrect. Surface errors are pervasive enough that they impede communication of meaning. Inappropriate word choice or sentence construction is used. Total Points 100.0 2: Less Than Satisfactory (65.00%) Measures of central tendency are partially calculated, but two required calculations are missing. Measures of central variation are partially calculated. Analysis of the descriptive statistics for differences and health outcome recommendations between the groups is incomplete or incorrect. Excel formulas are partially included or contain significant errors that affect problem solutions. Frequent and repetitive mechanical errors distract the reader. Inconsistencies in language choice (register) or word choice are present. Sentence structure is correct but not varied. 3: Satisfactory (75.00%) Measures of central tendency are mostly calculated, but one required calculation is missing. Measures of central variation are mostly calculated, but one required calculation is missing. Analysis of the descriptive statistics for differences and health outcome recommendations between the groups is included but lacks accuracy, explanation, or supporting details. Excel formulas are mostly included and contain minor errors. Some mechanical errors or typos are present, but they are not overly distracting to the reader. Correct and varied sentence structure and audience-appropriate language are employed. 4: Good (85.00%) N/A N/A Analysis of the descriptive statistics for differences and health outcome recommendations between the groups is complete and mostly accurate and contains explanation and supporting details. Excel formulas are included for all problems and contain only minor errors. Prose is largely free of mechanical errors, although a few may be present. The writer uses a variety of effective sentence structures and figures of speech. 5: Excellent (100.00%) Measures of central tendency are calculated. Measures of central variation are calculated for variance and standard deviation. Range is identified. Analysis of the descriptive statistics for differences and health outcome recommendations between the groups is extremely thorough and accurate and includes substantial explanation and supporting details. Excel formulas are complete and correct for all problems. Writer is clearly in command of standard, written, academic English. Comments Points Earned ...
