2-1. Your organization collects data on individual patients shown in Appendix Table 2. Identify whether each variable is measured nominally, ordinally, or as an interval/ratio variable. (14 points) The Variables for 2-1 are Gender, Age, Convenience Satisfaction, Insurer, Same Day Appointment, Rx Coverage, and Co-pay.
2-2. What statistical measures would you use to summarize the variable for age? What about for gender? For convenience satisfaction? How would you present these graphically?
2-3. If you are interested in whether satisfaction scoring differed by the amount the individual paid is a co-pay, how would you state this inquiry as testable hypothesis (the null and alternative)? What statistical test would you run to test this hypothesis?
