              Statistics Group Project: The use of JUUL by Flagler College Students

 

 

The purpose of this study is to explore the use of JUULs among students at Flagler College during the fall semester 2018.  In particular, this report will look into many of the aspects important to JUUL use today including the amount of time students use JUULS, the various  JUULs flavors pod that students smoke, and the opinion of students in regard to their practices with the use of JUUL.

 

Data Collection:

In this first phase of this project, descriptive statistical methods will be used to describe the sample of students surveyed.  The targeted population is all the students at Flagler College in Fall semester 2018. One hundred fifty MAT 223 Statistic students were surveyed.  Since only MAT 223 Statistics students were sampled, the sample may not be representative of the population of all Flagler College students, so sampling bias may exist.  Furthermore, since the data was self-reported, the sample results will more than likely produce measurement bias as well.

Demographics

In the sample of 150 MAT 223 Statistics students, 72.67% or 109 of the students surveyed were female and 27.33%  or 41 of the students surveyed were males. A bar graph displaying the students' ages is given below. This percent distribution of gender closely matches the percent distribution of the entire student body at Flagler College.  The majority of the students are females. Hence the mode response is females.

The age of the students surveyed is displayed in the histogram below.  This distribution is unimodal and right skewed with a potential outlier at the age of 50.  Since the distribution is right skewed, the best measure of center is the median of 18 years old and the best measure of spread is the IQR of 1 year.  Thus, the typical age of the students surveyed was 18 years old and most students were within 1 year of 18 years old.


Result 3: Age of Students Surveyed in the Fall of 2018



The pie graph below  shows the results of whether students have ever used a JUUL flavor pod. Of the 150 students surveyed  43.33 percent or 65 students said responded that they had indeed used JUUL flavor pod and 56.67 percent or 85 students  surveyed said they had not. It was interesting to note that the majority of students response was that they had not used a JUUL flavor pod before.

When we examined the amount of students from the survey who have actually used the JUULS and asked these students to give us an approximate number of times in which they have used a JUUL flavor Pod.   We noticed that the graph was right skewed and multimodal. The median for this sample was 0 with an IQR of 3 users. When we looked at the variation in the data it is important to note that there was not much variation in the graph.
