1 ZAP

2 Is this Categorical or Quantitative Data? A list of post office box numbers?

3 Categorical

4 Decide which method of data collection you would use to gather data for the study. A study of the effects of a fertilizer on a soybean crop.

5 Experiment (treatment applied)

6 Define population

7 The target interest group for a study

8 Identify which sampling technique was used in the study. Explain your reasoning. A pregnancy study in Cebu, Phillippines, randomly selected 33 communities from the Cebu metropolitan area, then interviewed all the pregnant women in these communities.

9 Cluster

10 Explain the flaw: “Do you think that President Obama should pull the troops from Iraq so that no more American soldiers are killed in hostile attacks?”

11  Emotionally charged words- Loaded question!

12 Identify which sampling technique was used in the study. Explain your reasoning. For quality assurance, every 10 th machine part is selected from an assembly line and measured for accuracy.

13  systematic

14 Determine whether the numerical value is a parameter or statistic. 57 of the 120 students thought that new computers should be bought for the school library.

15  PARAMETER

16 Determine whether the numerical value is a parameter or statistic. The 97 passengers aboard the Hindenburg airship survived its explosions.

17 Parameter

18 Is this Categorical or Quantitative? Final exam scores in a chemistry class.

19 Quantitative

20 Decide which method of data collection you would use to gather data for the study. A study of charitable donations of the CEOs in Syracuse, New York.

21  Survey

22 What is Statistics?
