(Answered) Hlt362 WK 5: 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

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.
