Using the data on the “National Cancer Institute Data” Excel spreadsheet calculate the descriptive statistics indicated below for each of the Race/Ethnicity groups.
There is often the requirement to evaluate descriptive statistics for data within the organization or for health care information. Every year the National Cancer Institute collects and publishes data based on patient demographics. Understanding differences between the groups based upon the collected data often informs health care professionals towards research treatment options or patient education.
Using the data on the “National Cancer Institute Data” Excel spreadsheet calculate the descriptive statistics indicated below for each of the Race/Ethnicity groups. Refer to your textbook and the Topic Materials as needed for assistance in with creating Excel formulas.
Provide the following descriptive statistics:
Measures of Central Tendency: Mean Median and Mode
Measures of Variation: Variance Standard Deviation and Range (a formula is not needed for Range).
Once the data is calculated provide a 150-250 word analysis of the descriptive statistics on the spreadsheet. This should include differences and health outcomes between groups.
APA style is not required but solid academic writing is expected.
