   Health care issues are receiving much attention in both academic and political arenas. A
   sociologist recently conducted a survey of citizens over 60 years of age whose net worth is
   too high to qualify for Medicaid and have no private health insurance. The ages of 25
   uninsured senior citizens were as follows:

   TABLE 3-1

           60 61     62    63    64    65     66    68    68    69    70     73    73
           74 75     76    76    81    81     82    86    87    89    90     92

   1. Referring to Table 3-1, calculate the mean age of the uninsured senior citizens to the
       nearest hundredth of a year.
   2. Referring to Table 3-1, identify the median age of the uninsured senior citizens.
   3. Referring to Table 3-1, identify the first quartile of the ages of the uninsured senior
       citizens.
   4. Referring to Table 3-1, identify the third quartile of the ages of the uninsured senior
       citizens.
   5. Referring to Table 3-1, identify the interquartile range of the ages of the uninsured senior
       citizens.
   6. Referring to Table 3-1, identify which of the following is the correct statement.
            a) One fourth of the senior citizens sampled are below 64 years of age.
            b) The middle 50% of the senior citizens sampled are between 65.5 and 73.0 years
                of age.
            c) 25% of the senior citizens sampled are older than 81 years of age.
            d) All of the above are correct.
   7. Referring to Table 3-1, what type of shape does the distribution of the sample appear to
       have?
   8. Referring to Table 3-1, calculate the standard deviation of the ages of the uninsured
       senior citizens correct to the nearest hundredth of a year.
   9. Referring to Table 3-1, calculate the coefficient of variation of the ages of the uninsured
       senior citizens.
   10. What conclusions can you draw about the age of uninsured senior citizens from your data
       analysis?
