Write a 250-500 word summary of your results and how this statistical analysis may be applied to your prospectus
This course helps you develop a basic understanding of statistics. This course addresses two distinct types, descriptive and inferential. In this assignment, you will use a software program that makes it easy to analyze data using specific tests. This assignment will give you practice with mean, median, mode, frequency, range, and standard deviation.
Use the following information to ensure successful completion of the assignment:
- Before beginning this assignment, view the SPSS tutorial videos provided as topic materials.
- Doctoral learners are required to use APA style for their writing assignments. The APA Style Guide is located in the Student Success Center.
- This assignment uses a rubric. Review the rubric prior to beginning the assignment to become familiar with the expectations for successful completion.
- You are not required to submit this assignment to LopesWrite.
Open the SPSS program, enter the data below using the steps, and create an output (as in the tutorial videos) with the following results highlighted:
- Determine the statistics for each gender as follows: Frequency Counts and Percentages.
- Determine the statistics for each blood sugar as follows: Mean, Standard Deviation, Minimum, and Maximum.
- Graphing and Descriptive Stats in SPSS: Create a bar graph with gender (axis X) and blood sugar (axis Y). Create a histogram of the blood sugar.
Use the following data set for this assignment:
You have a group of patients observed with a diagnosis of diabetes, and their blood sugar levels are listed below based on gender.
Men: 74, 71, 75, 248, 388, 505, 42, 212, 56
Female: 62, 68, 61, 71, 68, 80, 390, 148, 43
- Open SPSS and open a new database.
- Go to the Variable View.
- In the first row, label the name as Gender. Enter Gender as the Label Field. In the Values drop down, Enter 1 = Male; 2 = Female.
- In the second row, label the name as BloodSugar. Enter Blood Sugar in the Label Field.
- Go to the Data View and enter the data. Use 1’s for the nine Males and 2’s for the nine Females in the first column. Enter the blood sugars in the second column next to or aligned to the respective gender.
- Go to the menu and click Analyze. Click Descriptive Statistics, then click Frequencies, and add Gender and Patient Weight to the field. Click Charts and select Histogram. Indicate to provide a normal curve. Click OK. Review and save the Output.
- Go to the menu and click Analyze. Click Descriptive Statistics, then click Descriptives and add Blood Sugar to the field. Review and save Output.
- Go to the menu and click the Graph. Click Chart Builder. Click OK to open. Select the Bar Graph and move to the field. Move the Gender Variable to the x-axis and the Blood Sugar to the y-axis. Click OK. Review and save the Output.
Write a 250-500 word summary of your results and how this statistical analysis may be applied to your prospectus. Provide a histogram of the blood sugars graphed. Provide a bar graph with the gender on the x-axis and blood sugar levels on the y-axis. Add your SPSS statistical outputs as an Appendix to this summary.
Portfolio Practice Hours:
Practice immersion assignments are based on your current course objectives and is application-based learning using your real-world practice setting. These assignments earn practice immersion hours and are indicated in the syllabus by a Portfolio Practice Hours statement, which reminds you, the learner, to enter in a corresponding case log in Typhon. Actual practice immersion hours are entered, but the average hours associated with each practice immersion assignment is 10.
You are required to complete your assignment using a real-world application. Real-world application requires the use of evidence-based data, contemporary theories, and concepts presented in the course. The culmination of your assignment must present a viable application in a current practice setting. For more information on parameters for practice immersion hours, please refer to DNP resources in the DC Network.
