Report

The Public Citizen Health Research Group (the "group") calculated the rate of serious disciplinary actions per 1000 doctors in each state. Using state-bystate data from the Federation of State Medical Boards (FSMB) on the number of disciplinary actions taken against doctors in $2007,$ combined with data from earlier FSMB reports covering 2005 and $2006,$ the group compiled a national report ranking state boards by the rate of serious disciplinary actions per 1000 doctors for the years $2005-2007 .$ Following are data for the 10 states with the highest rates. Note: According to the group, "Absent any evidence that the prevalence of physicians deserving of discipline varies substantially from state to state, this variability must be considered the result of the boards' practices."$$\begin{array}{l|c|c}\hline \text { State } & \begin{array}{c}\text { Number of } \\\text { actions }\end{array} & \begin{array}{c}\text { Actions per } \\\text { 1000 doctors }\end{array} \\\hline \text { Alaska } & 19 & 8.33 \\\text { Kentucky } & 83 & 6.55 \\\text { Ohio } & 207 & 5.71 \\\text { Arizona } & 81 & 5.37 \\\text { Nebraska } & 21 & 5.19 \\\text { Colorado } & 75 & 4.92 \\\text { Wyoming } & 3 & 4.86 \\\text { Vermont } & 10 & 4.83 \\\text { Oklahoma } & 22 & 4.75 \\\text { Utah } & 32 & 4.72 \\\hline\end{array}$$Identify the type of data provided by the information in thea. first column of the table.b. second column of the table.c. third column of the table.

Okay. Now, the first question is we have to identify the type of data provided by the information in the first column in the first column. I have the names of states, right. There are only, I think, around 50 states in the United States, right? So every, uh, every case is going to be either from, uh, from one of these states, right? Every every case is going to be from one of these states. So we can say that these are nothing but categories, right? This is an example of qualitative variable. So part A says this is nothing but categorical data. Categorical or qualitative data call. It did Dave data. Then what are the second column of the David? This is going to be the number of actions now. Number of actions. This is numerical. And you can see that this is discrete. Number of actions cannot be like 19.8. Number of actions. No, it has to be at the 19 or 20. So this is discreet quantitative data. This is discreet quantitative quantitative data. Right. Moving on. How about her column? The third column is actions per 1000 doctors now actions pour 1000 doctors. This is nothing but ratios, right? Like if there are 833 actions. Oh, no, wait. Uh huh. Let's say that there are 833 actions in Alaska and the number of doctors was 100,000. So this would mean that there are 8.33 actions for 1000 doctors. Right? So this is nothing but a continuous variable. It can be 8.33 It can be nine. It can be 8.4 or 9.9 point to anything, right. So this can be continuous as well. So this continuous cooperative data one continues quantitative data.
