__Independent Project Data__- Excel (137 KB) (this file contains the data and descriptions of the study)__Independent Project Data Raw Data to Upload to StatCrunch__- Excel (133 KB) (upload this "clean" data file to StatCrunch)

Using the “**Independent Project Data**” set file supplied above, perform an analysis in **StatCrunch** for the following using the variable(s) of your choice:

**1.** Frequency distribution of a variable and bar graph of the same variable

**2**. Descriptives of a continuous variable: mean, median, mode, skewness, kurtosis, standard deviation and graph of that variable

**3**. Cross tabulation of two variables with the appropriate statistical test

**4.** Comparison of two groups (single variable) on a single continuous variable with the appropriate statistical test

**5**. Comparison of the effect of three or more groups (single variable) on a single continuous variable with the appropriate statistical test

**6**. Scatterplot and correlation between the two continuous variables with the appropriate statistical test

Think carefully about what kind of variables to choose for the given tasks. A short descriptive statement should accompany each of the above including a description of the variables used and any meaning that may be attached to the results. Write up the project in a WORD document for submission.

Grading on this project is as follows:

**3 points** for each task 1-6: 1 point each for variable choice, appropriate display/test, description of result.

**2 points** for overall format/readability/construct (the writing and graphs should be formal and of publishable quality as you would see in a journal article).
