The following should be considered a work in progress. It is part of a larger, standards-based Statistics
unit, but is presented here as a stand-along activity. If you have any suggestions for improvements,
questions for how to conduct this lesson, or if you end up teaching it, please email me. Thank you. All
On the next page there is a chart that contains data for each of the Zip Codes in the Bronx. The
categories are:
1. Average Spending per Student (Grades 1-8) in 1999/2000
2. Percent of the population Unemployed and not in the Labor Force
3. Percent of the population Unemployed
4. Percent of 35 – 44 year-olds with a Bachelor’s Degree
5. Total new AIDS cases in 2000
6. Percent of the households eligible for food stamps
7. Median household income in 1999

STEP 1: Pick two of these categories that you think there will be a strong positive or negative
association (relationship) between.

Which two categories did you pick?

Explain what type of relationship you think there will be (positive or negative) and why you think there
will be this type of relationship between them?

STEP 2: Make a Scatterplot Graph of the two categories you picked

STEP 3: From looking at your Scatterplot, what type of relationship exists between the categories of
data you compared? How did this compare to your prediction?
