Warm Up – Test Review

Marginal and Conditional

Researchers looking at the relationship between the type of college attended (public or private) and achievement gather the following data on 3265 people who graduated from college in the same year. The variable “management level” describes their job description 20 years after graduating from college.

- a. Calculate the marginal distribution of management level in percents.
- b. Find the conditional distribution of management level for each college type, in percents.
- c. Sketch the data from part (b) in a segmented bar graph and in a side-by-side bar graph.

Below is a graph showing the total number of Oscar nominations for the four films that had PG or PG-13 ratings. What’s wrong with the way the information is presented in this graph?

Using similar figures to compare heights exaggerates the differences between frequencies since people (wrongly) tend to compare areas.
