Analyze the data with MegaStat®, StatCrunch®, Microsoft® Excel®or other statistical tool(s), include in your paper:

(a) Descriptive stats for each numeric variable (e.g., mean, median, mode, percentage, standard deviation, etc. as appropriate)

(b) Histogram for each numeric variable (a histogram is for interval or ratio data only)
(c) Bar chart for each attribute (non numeric) variable (bar charts are for nominal or ordinal data only)
