Data Set Assignment and Survey Design

I assigned a data set per group, so you will be working on data set 5, Diesel sales taxes by state, on page 41. There is a link for a map of America and the sales tax associated with diesel fuel found on the web page listed on pg 41.

####Please email me your finished product. I would like you to make a word doc this time.####

Use your calculator to randomly select 10 of the 51 amounts. Write down the name of each state and its sales tax on a gallon of diesel fuel.

Calculate the descriptive statistics for the data set and interpret all statistics. (5 number summary and mean)

Create a histogram in Excel. Explain what the graph tells you about the data.

Write a couple of sentences for the school newspaper about your results.

After you have emailed me your data analysis word docs, complete Survey Design p45 #1-3.

Hi there, I'm so exited to learn from you about data set assignment and survey design. I like your sharing and survey design. One helpful analytic software that I've come across is PanXpan which has a Survey Response Analysis module that helps with analyzing this type of data. Please, could you let me know what type of survey and data set plan you've used for this design.
