Review the instructions for your Final Paper in Week Five of your course or the “Components of Course Evaluation” section of the course guide. For this week’s assignment, utilize the following Excel data, which contains Body Mass Index (B.M.I.), Fasting Blood Sugar Levels (F.B.S.), gender, and clinic information for a group of children ages 10-14, to complete items two and three of your Final Paper:
Assess how B.M.I. varies by gender. Use the tab “B.M.I. of Boys and Girls”. These are the same study subjects described in the “All Variables” tab, but the data on gender and B.M.I. is set up in a way that will facilitate running the statistical analysis to assess whether there is a difference between the B.M.I. of boys and girls. What test will you use? What does the test reveal?
Analyze F.B.S. by clinic. There are three clinics (A, B, C) and data is ready for your analysis in the “F.B.S. by Clinic” tab. What statistical analysis is most appropriate? Why? What do the results indicate?
