Using a combination of Excel and Access, analyze and present the data in the Popular Kids study.
Popular Kids MS Project
Carefully read and follow the directions found in the attached “Popular Kids” document.
Use your analytical and critical thinkings skills to complete the project – you must create spreadsheet pages and database files using the given base PopularKids Excel file file and the illustrated Documentation file.
Remember – The illustrated instructions are a guide not a tutorial. They do not show everything you must do in the illustration. They do show the necessary tabs in the workbook even if you do not see further examples.
Case in point – The Rank analysis of the last 4 columns of Data. You must create a Rank Analysis worksheet and analyze the rankings of responses for each of the topics listed in the columns Grades, Sports, Looks and Money. Create a results table and the appropriate charts in the Rank Analysis worksheet (You only see the worksheet tab in the popularkidsDocumentation file) find the descriptive statistics for each topic and each gender (Max, Min, Average, by topic and by gender).
Review the Example Rank Analysis PowerPoint for ideas on how to do the rank analysis sheet for this problem.
