This report will focus on the data below, which was collected by using a statcrunch survey about the amount of time college students  spend on social media websites.

1.The sampling method in which I used was to survey students in my statistics class. This was mostly a volunteer sample method. 

 

2. My four survey questions are:

 

1. What is your age?

 

2. What is your gender?

 

3. What is the average number of hours you are on your phone/ computer throughout the day?

 

4. While on your electronics, how much of that time is on social media websites?

After analyzing the data that had been found from the results of the survey, these detailed charts and graphs were constructed in order to be able to more easily interpret the results of the survey. First a bar graph shows the correlation between gender and the amount of hours spent on electronic devices throughout a day.

<Data1> Responses to "The mean number of hours college students spend on social media websites throughout the day"

First I stated my hypothesis which I thought was going to be below  hour for the mean amount of hours on social media websites. The Null hypothesis was the opposite of this. Next, I conducted a sample throught statcrunch and came to the conclusion that my hypothesis was incorrect. My hypothesis was incorrect because the mean is 3.75.

The number of hours spent on social media websites was more than I had predicted.
