Describe the Sun Coast data using the descriptive statistics tools discussed in the unit lesson. Establish whether assumptions are met to use parametric statistical procedures. Repeat the tasks below for each tab in the Sun Coast research study data set. Utilize the Unit IV Scholarly Activity template here.
You will utilize Microsoft Excel ToolPak. The links to the ToolPak are here in the Course Project Guidance document.
Here are some of the items you will cover.
