When asked “what does family mean?” I automatically think of the legal definition. The legal definition of family is a group of individuals consisting of parents, siblings, children, and other relatives, who have ties of blood, marriage, or adoption. Now that the legal definition is out of the way, we can get to my definition. Family also known as kin, folk, clan, relatives, or dynasty, to me is a little bit different from the legal definition. Family to me is a group of people who love you unknowingly but still unconditionally. Family is where you can be yourself and for me that is probably one of the turning points between family and close friendship. To others family might be the group of people that you tell boring stories to just because you know that regardless of anything they are still your family. There are times I find it hard to sleep at night and I text my cousin Lindsey and no matter what happens, I can tell her about it and she doesn't say anything to anybody. There was one time when I thought I was failing a class because, this year especially, I feel like i'm slacking a little bit. So I told Lindsey about it and she said “stop playing games and study because I know your grandma does not play.” Just that one line kind of put everything in perspective because my grandma, no matter how nice she may seem, she really doesn't play when it comes to grades and her family. Family in short can make someone a part of something bigger than themselves. Family is the one word that can make someone go back somewhere they really didn't want to ever go back to. Some family members make you mad, angry, upset, frustrated. Some make you want to call them every name in the book, and by book I don't mean the Bible. But, at the same time your family is the only thing you can find yourself confiding in, and crying to, and loving more than ever. So when it comes to family no one should feel like they have to have some type of guard up because these are the people...

7. Calculate the mean, median, and mode for your data as a whole.
3+4+5+5+5+8+10+14+18+20+20+25+25+30+30=222/15=14.8
The mean is 14.8
3,4,5,5,5,8,10,14,18,20,20,25,25,30,30
The median is: 14
3,4,5,5,5,8,10,14,18,20,20,25,25,30,30
The mode is: 5
8. Now calculate the mean, median, and mode of each of your classes or groups.
First, I will do the ages.
13+14+16+16+17+21+22+27+33+36+37+38+40+43+52=425/15=28.3
The mean is: 28.3
13,14,16,16,17,21,22,27,33,36,37,38,40,43,52
The median is: 27
13,14,16,16,17,21,22,27,33,36,37,38,40,43,52
The mode is: 16
Now I will do the genders. For the females.
5+5+8+10+14+18+20+20+25+25+30+30=210/12=17.5
The mean is:17.5
5,5,8,10,14,18,20,20,25,25,30,30
Since there was two numbers in the middle: 18+20=38/2=19
The median is: 19
5,5,8,10,14,18,20,20,25,25,30,30
The mode is: 5,20,25,30
For the males:
3+4+5=12/3=4
The mean is: 4
3,4,5
The median is: 4
3,4,5
The mode is: there is no mode for the males.
9. Indicate which measure of central tendency best describes your data and why. Then compare your results for each class or group, and point out any interesting results or unusual outcomes between the classes or groups. This is called a “comparative analysis” – using our results to explain interesting outcomes or differences (i.e., between men and women).
The measure of central tendency that...

...variable is because there are all different age groups that still study today. As online is getting more and more practical for students, individuals that are older are taking advantage of graduating and studying collegiately.
d) Select a second continuous variable that you believe would approximate a normal distribution
ANSWER: Height
e) Create a graph to show its distribution.
ANSWER:
[pic]
f) Explain why these data might be normally distributed.
. ANSWER:
Initially, I thought that height would not have a great deal of frequency. I was proven otherwise when I created the frequency chart for all the heights. As you can see, larger heights are more compacted together in the middle near the mean.

Family Values
Although the importance of family in the health of today’s society has been mentioned by many health care professionals, only since the mid-1990’s has the true significance of family in the well-being of humanity been fully recognized (Friedman, Bowden, & Jones, 2003). There has been “…little attention…paid to the family as an object of systematic study in nursing” (Friedman et al., 2003, p. 4). The health status of family members is directly influenced by the family, and vice versa (Friedman et al., 2003). Just as the concept of family used in one area of nursing practice may not be appropriate or helpful for a different area of practice, the theoretical foundation of family nursing used in one area may not be applicable in another.
Family Working as a System
According to Friedman, Bowden, and Jones (2003), because the family unit is the most rudimentary unit of today’s society, “…it is the social institution that has the most marked effect on its members” (p. 4). For most, family is the most basic and lasting social connection. Family is also “…the fabric of our day-to-day lives and shapes the quality of our lives by influencing...

...PART A:
i) Male:
Female:
The mean value of life satisfaction for male is about 7.7459 while for female is 7.7101, which proves there is no significant different life satisfaction between male and female, thus gender does not affect life satisfaction a lot. But when it comes to sample variance, for male is 2.5684 while for female is 3.0081. From this pair of figures it is obvious that the life satisfaction for female is more flexible than male. Man’s life satisfactions are easy to be affected by other variables. I assume “GENDER” does not affect life satisfaction.
ii) Not alone:
Alone:
The mean value of satisfaction for those who is not alone is about 7.8055 meanwhile the figure for those who live alone is 7.32584. There is a big gap between these two data, which implies that “ALONE” have a significant impact on people life satisfaction. Additionally, sample variance for alone is much higher than for not alone, which implies other variables affect people who live alone severely and affect people not alone a little. I assume “ALONE” affects “LIFESAT” vitally, since people feel happier when they are accompanied by others but for those who are alone are easy to feel lonely and sad.
iii) Income 1:
Income 6:
The average life satisfaction for people with income level 1 is 7.4426 while for people with income level 6 is 8.2069, which means people with high income are more satisfy with their life than...

EXERCISE 16 Questions to be Graded
1. The researchers analyzed the data they collected as though it were at what level of measurement?
d. Nominal
2. What was the mean posttest empowerment score for the control group?
The mean posttest empowerment score for the control group was 97.12
3. Compare the mean baseline and posttest depression scores of the experimental group. Was this an expected finding? Provide a rationale for your answer.
When comparing the mean baseline and post test depression scores of the experimental group, shows a 6 point difference in the mean values. It can be surmised that the study proved to be somewhat beneficial for the subject in the study since it may have served as an intervention.
4. Compare the mean baseline and posttest depression scores of the control group. Do these scores strengthen or weaken the validity of the research results? Provide a rationale for your answer.
The mean baseline and posttest depression scores of the control group have no change and stays at 10.40. These scores strengthen the validity of the research results because it shows that without the empowerment program, the control group’s depression has not...

Analysis of descriptive statistics shows that both the current and the proposed plan have almost similar mean completion hours which stand at 75.06 and 75.42 for the current and proposed respectively. Both the plans have exact same median and mode. However, the standard deviation in the current plan (3.94) is higher than that in the proposed plan (2.56), which is ultimately leading to the higher variance in the current plan. This suggests that the completion hours are more dispersed the mean value in the current plan, hence the mean does not give the true picture of data distribution whereas in the proposed plan, data for completion hours is comparatively more congregated.
2. Use the methods of Chapter 10 to comment on any difference between the population means for the two methods. Discuss your findings.
On chapter 10, interval estimation is used to reject or accept the hypothesis made about the two means. In this case, the hypothesis will be as follows:
Ho: μ1 - μ2 =0
Ha :μ1 -μ2 ≠ 0...
