New York Survey Statistics

A consulting firm was hired to perform a survey on people living in New York City. The survey was completed monthly for six months by 445 randomly selected people in different boroughs. There were a number of items on the survey but six basic biographical items will be studied for this exercise. The data for the people surveyed in one of these monthly surveys can be found in the Excel fileSURVEY. The variables that were used for the basic biographical data are found on the last page of the exercise.
In this exercise some of the estimation techniques presented in the module will be applied to the New York survey results. You may assume that these respondents represent a simple random sample of all potential respondents within the community and that the population is large enough that application of the finite population correction would not make an appreciable difference in the results.
New York City governmental agency personnel like to have point estimates regarding variables describing the biographical information of the people living within the different boroughs. It is very helpful for them to have some idea regarding the likely accuracy of these estimates as well. Therein lies the benefit of the techniques presented in this module and applied here.
