Assessment Description

 

There is often a requirement to evaluate descriptive statistics for data within an

 

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 about research, treatment options, or patient education.

 

Using the data on the National Cancer Institute Datat; Excel spreadsheet, calculate

 

the descriptive statistics indicated below for each of the race/ethnicity groups. Refer to

 

your textbook and the topic Resources, as needed, for assistance 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 are 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.

PART B

 

Correlation is the process of establishing a relationship between two or more factors. Correlation is

 

an important concept that can be misused. One misuse is saying that factor A is caused by factor

 

B just because correlation is found. Cause cannot be implied simply from correlation. Find two

 

examples in scholarly articles within the last 10 years that use correlation analysis. One of the

 

articles must use correlation to imply causation correctly and one article should not have

 

justification to imply cause.

 

1. Summarize both articles in at least 500 words.

 

2. Explain why cause was appropriate in one article and not in the other.

 

3. What would be needed for the second article to justify a statement of cause?

 

While APA style is not required for the body of this assignment, solid academic writing is expected,

 

and documentation of sources should be presented using APA formatting guidelines, which can be

 

found in the APA Style Guide, located in the Student Success Center.
