data analysis assignment presenting descriptive statistics

Assignment Instructions

In the lessons for Weeks 1 and 2, we examined several ways to present descriptive data. For this assignment, please create your own data set in Excel using at least 20 data points and create a 1) Table and 2) Graph that best represents your data. Be sure to label your columns and rows in the table or groups/axes in your graph. Include your fictitious research question and identify your independent variable(s) and dependent variable(s). Write a short summary of the data and why you selected the type of graph you did for display. For example you may wonder if favorite ice cream flavors vary among freshman, sophomores, juniors and seniors in a fictitious scenario. Your table and graph would represent this data and then you’d identify the DV and IV, respectively.
