Society is very diverse in many things, it includes socioeconomically, educationally, and in their perspectives in their need to further their education. The purpose of this survey was to get a snapshot on the education level along with the income within the population. Overall, it had an intention to show the difference in income between those with different educational levels. An interesting aspect of the survey is that it shows the motivation to continue professional development by means of furthering their degrees beyond what was initially achieved.
The population varied in age, educational level, and income. The sample was collected from various kinds of people; coworkers, friends, people walking in the park, down the street, and at a local bakery were all part of the sample . The collection process was done through face to face interview.
The Surveys consisted of the four following questions:
Do you plan to further your degree?
What is your highest education level?
What is your age (years)?
What is your annual salary ($)?
Categorical Variable:
A Based on the question: Do you plan to further your degree?
The following pie chart shows this categorical value with the following results: 62.07% of the sample will continue their education and 37.93% of them will not.

B The one sample proportion n=116 and yes=72. Lower limit= 0.53239108 and Upper limit of 0.70898823. Using a 95% confidence level that reflects balance therefore we are 95% confident that the interval from 0.532 and 0.709 actually does contain the true value (will continue education) of the population proportion p.
95% confidence interval results: Outcomes in : cont? Success : yes p : Proportion of successes Method: StandardWald

A.The numerical variable focuses on asking the age by this question: What is your age (years)?
Summary statistics:

The minimum age was 18 years old and oldest or maximum age was 70 with a midrange of 59. The standard deviation between the data was 12.16 and the Quartiles were Q1 was 28.5 and Q3 46.5. The range of 52 shows the wide numbers of ages present in this survey. The IQR is 18 (Q3Q1) in this case (46.528.5). The Range/4 is 13 and it is approximated to the SD of 12.16.
95% confidence interval results: μ : Mean of variable
