Can you provide how this would look on an Excel document?


 

Hi Mary,

Are you required to submit this as an Excel document?

The reason I ask is that using Excel will do absolutely nothing to enhance this in any way. In fact, it will actually make it harder to read and understand.

Unfortunately yes.


 


I also have these additional questions. I can add another a payment.


 


Or do I need to resubmit another ask question?


 


A new non-invasive screening test is proposed that is claimed to be able to identify patients with impaired glucose tolerance based on a battery of questions related to health behaviors. The new test is given to 75 patients. Based on each patient’s responses to the questions they are classified as positive or negative for impaired glucose tolerance. Each patient also submits a blood sample and their glucose tolerance status is determined. The results are tabulated below.
Screening Test
Impaired Glucose Tolerance
Not Impaired
Positive
17
13
Negative
8
37
a) What is the sensitivity of the screening test?
b) What is the false positive fraction of the screening test?
6. BMI in children is approximately normally distributed with a mean of 24.5 and a standard deviation of 6.2.
a) A BMI between 25 and 30 is considered overweight. What proportion of children are overweight?
b) A BMI of 30 or more is considered obese. What proportion of children are obese?
c) In a random sample of 10 children, what is the probability that their mean BMI exceeds 25?
7. A national survey is conducted to assess the association between hypertension and stroke in persons over 55 years of age. Development of stroke was monitored over a 5 year follow-up period. The data are summarized below and the numbers are in millions.
Developed Stroke
Did not Develop Stroke
Hypertension
12
37
No Hypertension
4
26
a) Compute the incidence of stroke in persons over 55 years of age
b) Compute the relative risk of stroke comparing hypertensive to non-hypertensive persons
c) Compute the odds ratio of stroke comparing hypertensive to non-hypertensive persons
8. Answer True or False to each of the following
a) If there are outliers, then the mean will be greater than the median.
b) The 90th percentile of the standard normal distribution is 1.645.
c) The mean is the 50th percentile of any normal distribution.
d) The mean is a better measure of location when there are no outliers.

Hi,

I can put the previous answers into Excel, but it will take some time, and it won't be as pretty.

I would suggest that you post these additional questions as a new question so that another expert can work on them while I'm moving all the previous work to Excel.

Thanks,

Are you good with statistics? Part A: Exploratory Data
Part A: Exploratory Data Analysis Preparation Open the files for the course project and the data set. For each of the five variables, process, organize, present and summarize the data. Analyze each variable by itself using graphical and numerical techniques of summarization. Use Excel as much as possible, explaining what the results reveal. Some of the following graphs may be helpful: stem-leaf diagram, frequency/relative frequency table, histogram, boxplot, dotplot, pie chart, bar graph. Caution: not all of these are appropriate for each of these variables, nor are they all necessary. More is not necessarily better. In addition be sure to find the appropriate measures of central tendency, the measures of dispersion, and the shapes of the distributions (for the quantitative variables) for the above data. Where appropriate, use the five number summary (the Min, Q1, Median, Q3, Max). Once again, use Excel as appropriate, and explain what the results mean. Analyze the connections or relationships between the variables. There are ten possible pairings of two variables. Use graphical as well as numerical summary measures. Explain the results of the analysis. Be sure to consider all 10 pairings. Some variables show clear relationships, while others do not. … read more
