Violent Crimes by State
http://www.census.gov/statab/ranks/rank21.html State Rankings -- Statistical Abstract of the United States VIOLENT CRIMES 1 PER 100,000 POPULATION -- 2006 [When states share the same rank, the next lower rank is omitted. Because of rounded data, states may have identical values shown, but different ranks. Cautionary note] Cautionary note about rankings The ranks in some tables are based on estimates derived from a sample(s). Because of sampling and nonsampling errors associated with the estimates, the ranking of the estimates does not necessarily reflect the correct ranking of the unknown true values. Thus, caution should be used when making inferences or statements about the states' true values based on a ranking of the estimates. As an example, the estimated total (average, percent, ratio, etc.) for State A may be larger than the estimates for all other states. This does not necessarily mean that the true total (average, percent, ratio, etc.) for State A is larger than those for all other states. Such an inference typically depends on --among other factors-- the size of the difference(s) between the estimates in question, and the size of their associated standard errors. In other tables, the ranks are based on a complete enumeration of the target population, or on complete administrative reporting from the population. In such cases, sampling is not used, and there is no sampling error component in the estimates. Still, care should still be taken when making inferences or statements based on the rankings. The table values may still exhibit nonsampling error originating from such sources as coverage problems (missing units or duplicates), nonresponse, misreporting, and others.

Obama and the U.S. Economy
I went around my community college and asked 50 male students "Is President Obama doing a good job of addressing the problems with the U.S. Economy?" I gave them a choice of Yes, No or Unsure. I also asked for their age just to have a little more data.

2013-2014 Medicare Part D Opioid Prescribing Data (By State)
"Prescription drug abuse is a serious and growing problem nationwide. CMS is committed to protecting Medicare beneficiaries and the Medicare Trust fund from the harm and damaging effects associated with prescription drug abuse. CMS takes this problem seriously and implemented more comprehensive strategies beginning in 2013 to address the overutilization of opioids in Medicare Part D while maintaining beneficiary access to needed medications. The Medicare Part D Overutilization Monitoring System (OMS) was fully implemented on July 31, 2013, to help CMS ensure that sponsors have established reasonable and appropriate drug utilization management programs to assist in preventing overutilization of prescribed medications . . While this data set cannot be used to identify overutilization of prescribed medications for a given beneficiary, it can be used to conduct other types of analyses of opioid prescribing and utilization under Part D. . . The data only represents only Medicare patients who elected to have Part D. It does not include prescribing for patients on Medicaid, those with commercial insurance, or self-pay patients. As a result, users of this data should recognize that it only presents a portion of a physician’s entire practice and that portion can vary significantly across physicians. However, this data does present valuable information on how physicians prescribe within in the Medicare program." **Excerpts taken from source link above** **Please note: I added the column "Region" for educational purposes.

Mod 3 Randomization Discussion
2. What p-value did you get in your randomization? Explain in the context of the problem what the p-value means. The P-value I got was 0.1883. What this means is that approximately18.8% of the 3000 random simulations proportions were below or exceeded past the original mean data of -2816.06 of the female loan difference. (Note: the original data is not negative it is simply showing the mean difference was greater with the female loans than the males) 3. Do you think the data support the null hypothesis of no difference in mean student loan debt between males and females or the alternate hypothesis that there is a difference? Explain your answer. H0: µ(male) = µ(female); Null Hypothesis. Although the p-value is showing 18.8 % of proportions that were below or exceeded the original mean data, I think the data supports a null hypothesis. Due to not having enough sufficient evidence based on these data and that even though the original mean data showed a difference, there is not a huge enough difference for the null hypothesis to say this is an alternative hypothesis.
