The purpose of this study is to reveal the differences of education in the world.
The collected data shows the education situation of the countries over the years from 2000 to
The research conducted was based on several websites’ comparison due to the fact that most of these databases are incomplete.
The report examines 11 countries from each group based on random selection, but each part of the globe.
The main question to be answered is whether there is a correlation between education, living standards (education, health…) and the type of country. How has the level of education changed the world in recent years?
Today, education is still inaccessible right for millions of children worldwide. Over-age children attend 72 million primary school do not attend school and more than 759 million adults are illiterate and do not have the knowledge to improve their lives and those of their children.


Analyse of the data
Enrolment rate in primary school in 2006 and 2013 (percentage)








Côte d'Ivoire





















South Africa



United States



Total n=


















We can infer that in general the enrolment rate in primary school increased between 2006 and 2013 because on average it rose from 81.36% to 88.64% which is positive. However, we can see that there is a large gap between the maximum value and the minimum value in 2006,
60%. This one nevertheless reduced to 38% in 2013.
We use the median to measure the central tendency, here we can see that in…...

...Course Project Part A Math 533 Keller Graduate School of Management Sept. 13, 2013 The purpose of this report is to provide feedback to AJ Davis Department Store so that they will have a better understanding of the makeup of their customer. This report will utilize three of the five customer variables that were determined by AJ Davis. The variables that were used for this study were: Income, location, credit balance, family size, and years at current household. Using these variables I will show how there may or may not be correlations between some variables and not others. Also, numerical descriptions will be used to show mean income, minimum and maximum credit balances, and family size just to give a few examples. Now that we have established a basis for this report let’s look at the analysis of the data. The first information we are going to discuss is customer income. Here is a statistical description of the income of all 50 of the customers that were sampled for this report. Descriptive Statistics: INCOME ($1000) Variable N Mean StDev Minimum Q1 Median Q3 INCOME($1000) 50 43.48 14.55 21.00 30.00 42.00 55.00 Variable Maximum INCOME($1000) 67.00 The information above shows that the average income of the customers at AJ Davis is $43,480 per year given the 50 customers who were sampled. It also shows us that 25% of the customers that were sampled have an income of #30,000 or less and 75% of their......

Franke College of Business PO Box 15066 Flagstaff, AZ 86011.5066   The Effect of Learning Styles on Course Performance: A Quantile Regression Analysis Introduction Students have different learning styles. “They preferentially focus on different types of information, tend to operate on perceived information in different ways, and achieve understanding at different rates” (Felder, 1993, p. 286). In this study, we investigated the relationship between student performance and learning styles for students enrolled in a basic business statistics course. This course was recently redesigned in order to facilitate learning for students of all learning styles. A learner-centered approach that incorporated multiple teaching styles such as student responsibility via mastery and co-operative learning that used teams in several course components was adopted. In addition, the focus of the redesigned course was on interpretation and implications of statistical results instead of the mechanics of computation (Lockwood, Ng, & Pinto, 2007). To assess our success in designing a course that facilitates learning for all learning styles, we evaluated the impact of students’ learning style on their performance in the course. “Students whose learning styles are compatible with the......

...Data Analysis Project 1. The population being sampled is Facebook users. 2. My sample was selected by blasting my survey questions to a random bunch of my “friends” on Facebook through a private message. I randomly selected 50 people in hope to get at least 25 responses. 3. Question #1: If Facebook decides to impose a monthly charge for its use, would you pay to continue using it? Please respond YES or No. Question #2: On average, how many minutes a day do you spend on Facebook? 4. A. Nominal Data Analysis-Frequency Table Response | Frequency | Relative Frequency | YES | 9 | .36 | NO | 16 | .64 | B. Qualitative Data Analysis-Summary Statistics Measure of Center: Mean = 51.12 minutes Median= 43 minutes Mode = 45 minutes Measure of Spread: Range = 116 Interquartile range = 55 Average deviation from mean = 31.30 5. Graphic Display of Results: Conclusion: Based on the data, on average, people spend about 50 minutes per day on Facebook, give or take 30 minutes. The usage data shows spikes at low usage (0-30 minutes) and moderate usage (61-90). Furthermore, the data tells us that even though the population enjoys Facebook, most would not be willing to pay a monthly charge to continue using it. While this seems like this data may be reflective of the whole Facebook users population, because I only sampled friends, this data may not be an accurate reflection of the whole population. There is a whole younger and older......

...MAT114 (STATISTICS) Project 2 Report Alejandra Ferrer April 15, 2014 Introduction: During an election year, there will be many polls to investigate how the 2 parties will do. The purpose of this current research was to examine how the different genders (Male and Female) and the different political parties (Democrats and Republicans) feel about how our President and Congress are handling our economy and our foreign policy. This might provide insight as to how the election may go in November of 2014. Method: To investigate these research questions and hypotheses, an online survey was created using “Survey Monkey” .A convenient sample of 30 people were asked to complete the survey online (See Appendix A for the survey).

...1. Introduction Poverty, which is measured by the household income lower than poverty line has been identified as the dependent variable in this project. It is important to know which elements are associated with poverty. The purpose of this paper is to evaluate the key determinants of American household poverty in 1980. The four possible determinants will be analyzed in this project, the average numbers of every family (FAMSIZE), URB is the percent of people live in urban, UR is the level of people have no job over 16 years and the median family income in US dollars (INCOME). Descriptive statistics, correlation and regression will be used in this project. 2. Descriptive statistics Variable | Mean | Median | Mode | VAR | STDEV | URB | 58.76034483 | 66.15 | 0 | 1012.828049 | 31.82495953 | FAMSIZE | 3.140172414 | 3.135 | 2.93 | 0.033377163 | 0.182694178 | UR | 9.293103448 | 8.95 | 5.8 | 10.92696915 | 3.30559664 | INCOME | 19240.43103 | 18512 | N/A | 10889936.04 | 329.990309 | POV | 9.120689655 | 9.05 | 8.8 | 6.230792498 | 2.496155544 | 3. Correlation Correlation and regression are techniques for investigating the statistical relationship between two, or more, variables (Barrow, 2013, pp. 238). * Correlation defines the degree to which there is a linear relationship between pairs of variables. Firstly, it is useful to graph the variables to see if anything useful is revealed. In this case, XY graphs are the most suitable and they are shown in......

We timed customers at 6 different restaurants: From the time they ordered their food till it was delivered. We also took note of the appearance of the restaurant, employee attitude and over-all cleanliness. Red Lobster and Olive Garden were chosen because of their similar styles of service, casual dining restaurants. Logan’s and Ruth Chris were chosen because they’re both steak-houses. Foosackly’s and Five Guys were chosen because of similar service styles, grab and go. Devon recorded the food service response times on Saturday March 24, 2012. His data was collected from 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm, at the Red Lobster on Airport Blvd in Mobile, Alabama. Devon noted that upon entering Red Lobster that a pleasant smell of butter biscuits was wafting in the lobby and he was......

...HOW SAD IS YOUR STATE? STATISTICS FINAL PROJECT MARK GRUNEWALD I chose to explore the topic of if individuals in overall colder states have more cases of depression than in the warmer states. While doing research on this topic I stumbled upon many different reasons as to why my topic could be proven factual. The first disorder I found was Seasonal Affective Disorder which is primarily individuals whose moods are determined by the weather. Another topic I discover was that “normal” health individuals are affected by the weather as well. The topic that stood out the most to me is SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder). I chose to accept this topic because rarely so I hear anything about SAD let alone someone talking about it. WHAT IS SAD? Seasonal affective disorder (SAD) is a type of depression that tends to occur (and recur) as the days grow shorter in the fall and winter. It is believed that affected people react adversely to the decreasing amounts of sunlight and the colder temperatures as the fall and winter progress. It is important to note that although seasonal affective disorder usually presents in the fall and winter there are those who suffer from this condition during the summer instead of, or in addition to, during the fall or winter. Seasonal affective disorder has not been long recognized as an official diagnosis. The term first appeared in print in 1985. Seasonal affective disorder is also sometimes called winter depression, winter blues, or the hibernation...
