**Tables or Graphs**

Using the Internet, the text, or another reliable source such as a newspaper or periodical site, (not a scholastic or school site like Khan Academy and not Wikipedia), research some important data that has been presented in graph or table format. Make sure to cut and paste the chart or table; if that is not possible, paste a link to the webpage. (Check it to be sure it links correctly.) Present your graph and fully explain the information it is representing. Pose one question regarding the data and graph or chart for your fellow students to consider and respond to in your post.

Please include the website.

The link opens a research paper about a recent study according to which the number of adverse events reported to FDA by the use of cosmetic and personal care products have increased.

Look at the graph shown in the paper, as given below:

Looking at this graph, one question you can ask is as follows:

Which category of products showed the greatest increase in the number of reportings over the past years ? Is there any category for which the number of reportings has decreases rather than increasing ?

Hope this helps !

Using the Internet, find a healthcare-related example of one of
the types of charts or graphs described in this week’s readings.
Evaluate the chart and summarize the data it illustrates. What
other kind of chart could have been used to illustrate this data?
Would it have been more effective, or less? Why? Cite your research
and explain all your answers in detail.

In what circumstances is data visualization better than using
text explanations and tables of numeric data? In what situations is
it worse? Justify your reasoning.

Test the hypothesis from an article in a newspaper, magazine or
on the internet that makes a claim about a population mean or a
population proportion. Select a variable (mean or proportion) to
test. Define the population. Select a sample of at least 10 data
values for mean testing or 30 to 50 data values for proportion
testing. Construct a 90% interval confidence interval. and state
the statistical decision based on the P-value with 5% of level
significance.

Analyze healthcare results as reported in:
a. graphs, b. tables. (II.C.6)

Find the results of an opinion poll from the internet, a
newspaper, or a magazine
Describe your case briefly and discuss how they explored the
data, which tools and statistics had been applied (e.g., plot,
mean, standard deviation…)

At Colgate-Palmolive Company, the use of descriptive statistics
tables and graphs are used to support the quality assurance
department in efforts to improve customer satisfaction with
detergent products. Propose a similar example from another industry
sector and suggest how descriptive statistics tables and graphs
would be used to improve customer service or product quality. Be
sure to be specific on what data would be used, which table and
graph techniques would be used and how the review of these
artifacts...

5. According to a reliable source, 65% of murders
are committed with a firearm. Suppose 15 murders are randomly
selected. First construct a relative and cumulative frequency
distribution for the situation. Then confirm that it is both a
probability and binomial probability distribution.
a. Compute the mean.
b. Compute the standard deviation.
c. Would a sample of 15 with 6 murders committed with a
firearm be considered unusual? Justify your reasoning.
d. Find the probability that exactly 10 murders are...

Charts and graphs are used quite often in newspaper articles,
magazines, books, and various online articles. There are pros and
cons to using these types of visual representations. Describe one
pro and one con for using a graph or chart. Share an example of a
time when this type of visual changed your mind about something or
gave you a deeper understanding of a topic or current event.
