...market by gaining greater market shares by strategically introducing a new cold beverage product. In this case my line of questioning would be what popular drinks are being marketed successfully currently? Is the health-concious drinks and foods at the top of the food chain currently? Is there a more convenient consumption of cold beverages we can capitalize on such as a no-sugar-added fruit juice in a carton that is individual in size? How will the product be marketed? What regions are the cold beverages selling best? What surveys indicate who is buying the drinks by gender, age, time of year, etc. These are all questions that would be important to my report to identify a relationship between variables, probably single linear analysis would provide this information best with dependent and independent variables to be considered. The variables in my mind then become gender, will the drink be more appealing to women than men; portability, will the personalized approach to individual grab-and-go drinks be more appealing to consumers in that market? Research could easily show a company where most cold beverages are sold from regionally designed research for collecting this data. This variable would be region. The generational/age input or “baby boomer” effect could be part of the input or variables (Can Soft Drink Taxes Reduce Population Weight?). Placing the correct variables into the regression model should give me a fairly accurate answer with regard to my......

...Basic statistical analysis is descriptive analysis, descriptive statistics summarizes responses for large numbers of respondents in a few simple statistics. When a sample is gathered, the sample descriptive statistics are used to make inferences about characteristics of the entire population of interests. Descriptive analysis is describing data in a way that explains the basic characteristics such as tendency, distribution, and variables. Examples of this would be if a company wanted to find out what type of bonus employees prefer. Descriptive statistics are used to explain the basic properties of these variables. Mean, Median, and Modes are descriptive statistics that is used to explain the basic properties of variables. The mean would reflect the average answer that is given. The Median would provide the answer that is the central, or middle range answer. The mode would be the answer that was given the most often. Tabulation refers to the orderly arrangement of data in a table or other summary format. When the tabulation process is done by hand, the term tallying is used. Simple tabulation tells how frequently each response or bit of information occurs. Cross Tabulation is used for addressing research questions involving relationships among multiple less than interval variables. One key factor in interpreting a cross tabulation table is comparing the observed table values with the hypothetical values that could result from pure chance. Percentage Cross......

...are assessed incrementally with equal distances between the increments (Bennett, Briggs, & Triola, 2009). In the hospital setting, nurses routinely use ratio levels of measurement such as the patients weight, height, temperature, blood pressure, and respiratory rate. In conclusion, numerous statistics are collected and analyzed in the health care setting. Accurate statistics provide information regarding patient satisfaction, patient safety, and patient outcomes. Using this information to identify areas for improvement, planning, and implementing changes in care and practice will improve the quality of care, decrease morbidity, and improve patient outcomes.

...Final Project: Statistics II Descriptive analysis of statistical data INTRODUCTION There have always been crimes, from a treachery to an assassination. Happens in every country you can think of, and every government has to deal with it. It is really stressful to try to understand the nature of the crimes: why are they done and where could they happen next. Out of this preoccupation is that we found studies gathering data from communities; we focused on one specific crime: murders. In several communities, it is thought that the murder rate is somehow related to several factors. For instance, it is common to hear that the murder rate depends on poverty and unemployment. Starting from this hypothesis, the database found to make this analysis relates the number of murders per year per 1,000,000 inhabitants with the number of inhabitants, the percentage of families’ incomes below $5000, and the percentage unemployed. OBJECTIVE OF THE STUDY Trying to estimate how many murders will happen in a year in a specific place is difficult, but not impossible. This is why we are using the dataset found with the variables mentioned above, with which we’ll be able to find a formula. So, after this project, if we want to know how many murders will be on a city, for example Monterrey, we’d just plug in the data from that city (the inhabitants, the percentage of families income below $5000, and the percentage unemployed) and we’ll get a number, which would be the predicted number of......

...Statistical Analysis Process: Generally, all of the business courses that you take are focused on answering a single question - “What can managers do to improve the performance of their organizations?” It is not sufficient to theorize that a particular business strategy will lead to improved performance. You must test the theory. The statistical analysis process is a standardized methodology for testing theories. Generally, you identify a strategy that you believe may work, you ask experts what they think about the strategy, you analyze the data collected from the experts, you interpret the results from the analysis, and you draw conclusions about how well the strategy works based on the interpretations. All remaining assignments require that you follow this process. 1. State the research question. This is general question related to our area of concern. For example: “What can managers do to improve the performance of their organizations?” That’s probably stated a little too generally. More specific examples include: “Will implementation of a market orientation strategy improve my organization’s performance?” and “Will implementation of JIT and TQM improvement programs combine to improve my organization’s performance?” 2. State the hypotheses. Hypotheses are formulated from the research question. They must be stated in a form that is statistically testable. For example, “Market orientation is positively associated with operational......

...salaries for schools requiring English test = µ (starting salaries for schools not requiring english test) Alternative hypothesis (Ha): µ (starting salaries for schools requiring English test) ≠ µ (starting salaries for schools not requiring English test) Significance level = 5% Minitab test results: Conclusion: At 5% significance level, P-value is 0.245 which is greater than 0.05. FAIL TO REJECT NULL HYPOTHESIS. 95% CI for difference contains 0. Hence, there is no statistically significant difference between the mean starting salary of schools requiring and not requiring English test. Part 3: Relation between starting salaries and tuition: We can conduct a correlation analysis to measure association between starting salaries and tuition fees. Two separate correlation analysis can be conducted using local and foreign tuition fees data sets. Correlation between starting salaries and local tuition fees: There is a significant strong positive linear correlation between Local Tuition and Starting Salary of MBA graduates. As the Local Tuition fee increases, the starting salaries increase too. Correlation between starting salaries and foreign tuition fees: There is a significant strong positive linear correlation between Foreign Tuition and Starting Salary of MBA graduates. As the Foreign Tuition fee increases, the starting salaries increase too. Part 4: There are three interesting observations that I’d like to cover in this section: 1.......

...Statistical Information Paper HCS 438 July 17, 2011 Monica Vargas Statistical Information Paper Statistics are used in many different ways in my workplace. The use of statistics is for the improvement of quality care and safety. Statistics are also used to measure employee compliance in regards to hand washing and proper use of policies and procedures. We also use charts and graphs to show infection rates, skin integrity, falls within the facility, budget concerns, and many more. These graphs help hospital personal improve care and safety to provide quality care to all patients. Graphs can also be used to measure patient and employee satisfaction. Descriptive statistics are used to describe the basic features of the data in a study and do not involve generalizing the data that has been collected. They provide simple summaries about the sample and the measures. Together with simple graphics analysis, they form the basis of virtually every quantitative analysis of data (Trochim, 2006). An example of descriptive statistics used at my workplace can be the number of patients that are admitted into the hospital on a Monday versus a patient admitted on any other day of the week. This information can also be broken down into more descriptive categories such as how many patient were men, women , children, what is their diagnosis, why were they admitted, and so on and so forth. We use inferential statistics to make judgments of the probability that an observed......

...Watson described in her carative factors. The “attending nurse caring model” is a theory application that Watson and Roxie Foster developed. This application utilized the theory and the evidence of caring and healing process. The “Attending Nurse Caring Model or ANCM” (Watson & Foster, 2003) was set up to look at how caring affected children’s pain. Watson and Foster considered that the ANCM would have nurses who will function beside the hospitalist in regards to patient care. In the ANCM, patient care is delivered with the focus on caring and healing. For the ANCM to be successful requires that partnerships be formed as well as new forms of communication (Watson & Foster, 2003, p. 361). In the model, nursing care would be compared to physician hospitalist role, as the nurse would be responsible for coordinating care among the members of the clinical team as well as providing care for the patient and the family. The model gives the “Attending Care Nurse” responsibility to plan for and give directions for “continuous care” (Watson & Foster, 2003, p 364). John Paley is a senior lecturer at the University of Stirling, School of Nursing, Midwifery and Health, in the United Kingdom. He has a MA degree and currently is a member of the research committee. He teaches philosophy, ethics, organization, research and management. Paley has done research on nursing phenomenology and applications of the philosophy of mind.
