Summary and Descriptive Statistics

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.
