The histogram is shown below. [pic] The histogram clearly shows that the annual household incomes are skewed to the right. And, of course, if annual household incomes are skewed to the right, so are annual incomes. This makes sense because the vast majority of annual incomes are less than NT$1,000,000.

But, there are a few individuals with very large incomes. b. The histogram for the age is given. [pic] The histogram shows that the distribution of age is skewed to the left. This is to be expected. It is our experience that there are frequently a few very low ages causing such a pattern to appear. c. The histogram for the data in Exercise 11 is given. d. [pic] e. This histogram is skewed to the left slightly, but we would probably classify it as roughly symmetric. 17. a. |Amount (NT$ ‘000) |Frequency |Relative Frequency | |Less than 56 |3 |. 2 | |56-75 |5 |. 20 | |76-95 |11 |. 44 | |96-115 |4 |. 16 | |116-135 |1 |. 04 | |136 and more | 1 |. 04 | | |25 |1. 00 | b.

This stem-and-leaf display shows that the trading prices are closely grouped together. Rotating the stem-and-leaf display counter clockwise shows a histogram that is slightly skewed to the left but is roughly symmetric. b. 500 shares traded online at $50 per share. |0 |5 7 | |1 |0 1 1 3 4 | |1 |5 5 5 8 | |2 |0 0 0 0 0 0 | |2 |5 5 | |3 |0 0 0 | |3 |6 | 4 | | |4 | | |5 | | |5 | | |6 |3 | This stretched stem-and-leaf display shows that the distribution of online trading prices for most of the brokers for 500 shares are lower than the trading prices for broker assisted trades of 100 shares. There are a couple of outliers. York Securities charges $36 for an online trade and Investors National charges much more than the other brokers: $62. 50 for an online trade. 27. 4 |1 3 6 6 7 | |5 |0 0 3 8 9 | |6 |0 1 1 4 4 5 7 7 9 | |7 |0 0 0 1 3 4 4 5 5 6 6 6 7 8 8 | |8 |0 1 1 3 4 4 5 7 7 8 9 | |9 |0 2 2 7 | or |4 |1 3 | |4 |6 6 7 | |5 |0 0 3 | |5 |8 9 | 6 |0 1 1 4 4 | |6 |5 7 7 9 9 | |7 |0 0 0 1 3 4 4 | |7 |5 5 6 6 6 7 8 8 | |8 |0 1 1 3 4 4 | |8 |5 7 7 8 9 | |9 |0 2 2 | |9 |7 | 28. a. |0 |5 8 | |1 |1 1 3 3 4 4 | |1 |5 6 7 8 9 9 | |2 |2 3 3 3 5 5 | |2 |6 8 | |3 | | 3 |6 7 7 9 | |4 |0 | |4 |7 8 | |5 | | |5 | | |6 |0 | b. |2000 P/E Forecast | |Percent Frequency | | |Frequency | | |5 – 9 |2 |6. 7 | | |10 – 14 |6 |20. 0 | | |15 – 19 |6 |20. 0 | | |20 – 24 |6 |20. | | |25 – 29 |2 |6. 7 | | |30 – 34 |0 |0. 0 | | |35 – 39 |4 |13. 3 | | |40 – 44 |1 |3. 3 | | |45 – 49 |2 |6. 7 | | |50 – 54 |0 |0. 0 | | |55 – 59 |0 |0. 0 | | |60 – 64 |1 |3. 3 | | |Total |30 |100. 0 | | 29. a.

The first six give the percent frequency distribution of income for each age level. The total row provides an overall percent frequency distribution for household income. Both of the two rows (age 35-44 and age 55- 64) have more percentage in the cells and descended in order of larger income.

The second row is the percent frequency distribution for households headed by age 35-44. The fourth row is the percent frequency distribution for households headed by age 55-64. b. The percentage of heads of households by age 35-44 earning NT$2,500,000 or more is 8. 79% + 7. 03% = 15. 82%. The percentage of heads of households by age 55-64 earning $75,000 or more is 8. 81% + 13. 73% = 22. 54%. c. The percent frequency histograms are shown below. [pic] No. The histogram can not tell us any relationship between household income and age. 32. a.

The first five columns give the percent frequency distributions for each income level.

The percent frequency distribution in the “Total” column gives the overall percent frequency distributions for educational level. From that percent frequency distribution we see that 15. 86% of the heads of households did not graduate from high school. b. The column percentages show that 26. 86% of households earning over $100,000 were headed by persons having schooling beyond a bachelor’s degree. The row percentages show that 39. 72% of the households headed by persons with schooling beyond a bachelor’s degree earned $100,000 or more. These percentages are different because they came from different percent frequency distributions. c.

Compare the “under 24. 9” percent frequency distributions to the “Total” percent frequency distributions. We see that for this low income level the percentage with lower levels of education is lower than for the overall population and the percentage with higher levels of education is higher than for the overall population. Compare the “100 or more” percent frequency distribution to “Total” percent frequency distribution. We see that for this high income level the percentage with lower levels of education is lower than for the overall population and the percentage with higher levels of education is higher than for the overall population.

From the comparisons here it is clear that there is a positive relationship between household incomes and the education level of the head of the household. 33. a. The crosstabulation of condition of the greens by gender is below. | |Green Condition | | |Gender |Too Fast |Fine |Total | |Male |35 | 65 |100 | |Female |40 | 60 |100 | |Total |75 |125 |200 |

The female golfers have the highest percentage saying the greens are too fast: 40%. b. 10% of the women think the greens are too fast. 20% of the men think the greens are too fast. So, for the low handicappers, the men have a higher percentage who think the greens are too fast. c. 43% of the woman think the greens are too fast. 50% of the men think the greens are too fast. So, for the high handicappers, the men have a higher percentage who think the greens are too fast. . This is an example of Simpson’s Paradox. At each handicap level a smaller percentage of the women think the greens are too fast. But, when the crosstabulations are aggregated, the result is reversed and we find a higher percentage of women who think the greens are too fast. The hidden variable explaining the reversal is handicap level. Fewer people with low handicaps think the greens are too fast, and there are more men with low handicaps than women. 34. a. | |EPS Rating | | | |Sales/Margins/ROE |0-19 |20-39 |40-59 |60-79 |80-100 |Total | |A | | | |1 |8 |9 | |B | |1 |4 |5 |2 |12 | |C |1 | |1 |2 |3 |7 | |D |3 |1 | |1 | |5 | |E | |2 |1 | | |3 | |Total |4 |4 |6 |9 |13 |36 | b. | | |EPS Rating | | | |Sales/Margins/ROE |0-19 |20-39 |40-59 |60-79 |80-100 |Total | |A | | | |11. 11 |88. 89 |100 | |B | |8. 33 |33. 33 |41. 67 |16. 67 100 | |C |14. 29 | |14. 29 |28. 57 |42. 86 |100 | |D |60. 00 |20. 00 | |20. 00 | |100 | |E | |66. 67 |33. 33 | | |100 | Higher EPS ratings seem to be associated with higher ratings on Sales/Margins/ROE. Of those companies with an “A” rating on Sales/Margins/ROE, 88. 89% of them had an EPS Rating of 80 or higher. Of the 8 companies with a “D” or “E” rating on Sales/Margins/ROE, only 1 had an EPS rating above 60. 35. a. | |Industry Group Relative Strength | | | |Sales/Margins/ROE |A |B |C |D |E |Total | |A |1 |2 |2 |4 | |9 | |B |1 |5 |2 |3 |1 |12 | |C |1 |3 | |2 |1 |7 | |D |1 | |1 |1 |2 |5 | |E | |1 |2 | | |3 | |Total |4 |11 |7 |10 |4 |36 | | | | | | | | | b/c. The frequency distributions for the Sales/Margins/ROE data is in the rightmost column of the crosstabulation.

The frequency distribution for the Industry Group Relative Strength data is in the bottom row of the crosstabulation. d. Once the crosstabulation is complete, the individual frequency distributions are available in the margins. 36. a. [pic] b. One might expect stocks with higher EPS ratings to show greater relative price strength. However, the scatter diagram using this data does not support such a relationship. The scatter diagram appears similar to the one showing “No Apparent Relationship” in the text. 37. a.

There appears to be a relationship between Position and Speed; wide receivers had faster speeds than offensive tackles and guards. c. The scatter diagram is shown below: [pic] d. There appears to be a relationship between Speed and Rating; slower speeds appear to be associated with lower ratings. In other words,, prospects with faster speeds tend to be rated higher than prospects with slower speeds. 38. a. |Vehicle |Frequency |Percent Frequency | F-Series |17 |34 | |Silverado |12 |24 | |Taurus |8 |16 | |Camry |7 |14 | |Accord |6 |12 | |Total |50 |100 | b.

Observations from the column percentages crosstabulation For those buildings using electricity, the percentage has not changed greatly over the years.

For the buildings using natural gas, the majority were constructed in 1973 or before; the second largest percentage was constructed in 1987-1991. Most of the buildings using oil were constructed in 1973 or before. All of the buildings using propane are older. Observations from the row percentages crosstabulation Most of the buildings in the CG&E service area use electricity or natural gas. In the period 1973 or before most used natural gas. From 1974-1986, it is fairly evenly divided between electricity and natural gas. Since 1987 almost all new buildings are using electricity or natural gas with natural gas being the clear leader. 51. a.
