Exercise 261. Plot the frequency distribution for “Age at Enrollment” by hand or by usin” rel=”nofollow”>ing SPSS.

Replace this text with your plot from SPSS.

2. How would you characterize the skewness of the distribution in” rel=”nofollow”>in Question 1—positively skewed, negatively skewed, or approximately normal? Provide a rationale for your answer.

Replace this text with answer.

3. Compare the origin” rel=”nofollow”>inal skewness statistic and Shapiro-Wilk statistic with those of the smaller dataset ( n = 15) for the variable “Age at First Arrest.” How did the statistics change, and how would you explain” rel=”nofollow”>in these differences?

4. Plot the frequency distribution for “Years of Education” by hand or by usin” rel=”nofollow”>ing SPSS.

Replace this text with your plot from SPSS.

5. How would you characterize the kurtosis of the distribution in” rel=”nofollow”>in Question 4—leptokurtic, mesokurtic, or platykurtic? Provide a rationale for your answer.

Replace this text with answer.

6. What is the skewness statistic for “Age at Enrollment”? How would you characterize the magnitude of the skewness statistic for “Age at Enrollment”?

Replace this text with answer.

7. What is the kurtosis statistic for “Years of Education”? How would you characterize the magnitude of the kurtosis statistic for “Years of Education”?

Replace this text with answer.

8. Usin” rel=”nofollow”>ing SPSS, compute the Shapiro-Wilk statistic for “Number of Times Fired from Job.” What would you conclude from the results?

Replace this text with answer.

9. In the SPSS output table titled “Tests of Normality,” the Shapiro-Wilk statistic is reported along with the Kolmogorov-Smirnov statistic. Why is the Kolmogorov-Smirnov statistic in” rel=”nofollow”>inappropriate to report for these example data?

Replace this text with answer.

10. How would you explain” rel=”nofollow”>in the skewness statistic for a particular frequency distribution bein” rel=”nofollow”>ing low and the Shapiro-Wilk statistic still bein” rel=”nofollow”>ing signi?cant at p < 0.05?
