# The analytics department for a consulting company statistics homework help

Assignment Steps

Resources: Microsoft ExcelÂ®, Assignment Databases, Assignment Options, Part 3: Inferential Statistics (All are attached with this message including the grading guide to help you better that you are covering all the questions asked for this assignment).

Scenario: Upon successful completion of the MBA program, say you work in the analytics department for a consulting company. Your assignment is to analyze only one of the following databases:

• Manufacturing
• Hospital
• Consumer Food
• Financial

Select one of the databases based on the information in the Signature Assignment Options.

Provide a minimum 1,600-word (no more than 1,750) detailed, statistical report including the following:

• Explain the context of the case
• Provide a research foundation for the topic
• Present graphs
• Explain outliers
• Prepare calculations
• Conduct hypotheses tests
• Discuss inferences you have made from the results

This assignment is broken down into four parts:

• Part 1 – Preliminary Analysis
• Part 2 – Examination of Descriptive Statistics
• Part 3 – Examination of Inferential Statistics
• Part 4 – Conclusion/Recommendations

Part 1 – Preliminary Analysis (3-4 paragraphs)

Generally, as a statistics consultant, you will be given a problem and data. At times, you may have to gather additional data. For this assignment, assume all the data is already gathered for you.

State the objective:

• What are the questions you are trying to address?

Describe the population in the study clearly and in sufficient detail:

• What is the sample?

Discuss the types of data and variables:

• Are the data quantitative or qualitative?
• What are levels of measurement for the data?

Part 2 – Descriptive Statistics (3-4 paragraphs)

Examine the given data.

Present the descriptive statistics (mean, median, mode, range, standard deviation, variance, CV, and five-number summary).

Identify any outliers in the data.

Present any graphs or charts you think are appropriate for the data.

Note: Ideally, we want to assess the conditions of normality too. However, for the purpose of this exercise, assume data is drawn from normal populations.

Part 3 – Inferential Statistics (2-3 paragraphs)

Use the Part 3: Inferential Statistics document.

• Create (formulate) hypotheses
• Run formal hypothesis tests
• Make decisions. Your decisions should be stated in non-technical terms.

Hint: A final conclusion saying “reject the null hypothesis” by itself without explanation is basically worthless to those who hired you. Similarly, stating the conclusion is false or rejected is not sufficient.

Part 4 – Conclusion and Recommendations (1-2 paragraphs)

Include the following:

• What do you infer from the statistical analysis?
• State the interpretations in non-technical terms. What information might lead to a different conclusion?
• Are there any variables missing?
• What additional information would be valuable to help draw a more certain conclusion?

Format your assignment consistent with APA format.

Include graphs, plots, histogram without gap

Submit 2 separate files:

1. Word document showing all the answers, graphs, tables, plots, ect…

2. Excle file showing all the calculations, tables, graphs, plots, ect…

References: Minimum 2 peer reviewed references and include in text citations in your paper as well.

NOTE: Read all the following attached files first before you start working on this assignment.
