Directions for Statistics Project:

1. Access the Information on “Smoking & Tobacco Use” by going to the CDC website at

www.cdc.gov .

 

2. Go to near the bottom of the home page and click on “Healthy Living.”

 

3. Scroll down and click on “Smoking & Tobacco Use.”

 

4. You will then see tabs that says Fast Facts, Year of Cessation, etc. Scroll to the bottom of that page, under the blue boxes, and you will see STATE System (State Tobacco Activities Tracking and Evaluation System). Click on that.

 

5. Scroll down and click on “Custom Reports.”

 

6. This is where you will begin to extract data for your project. In the dropdown box for Topic Type,

choose “Tobacco Use – Survey Data.”

 

7. Then select the other criteria as shown in the figure below. As you enter each field the next field will appear. You do not have to choose Indiana.

 

8. Finally, select “View Report.” Carefully read: “How do I interact with the table?” This will tell you how to filter to interpret your findings. From this you will identify what areas you will explore, such as smoking by race, or gender, or education, or combinations of those, etc.

 

Create a formal report (a report that includes a cover page, calculation of basic statistics, the interpretation of the findings, including any relevant information to present the topic, history, explanation of the data, etc. as well as the graphical display of the data) to discuss your state’s current status on smoking and tobacco use. You will also include a reference page with your report. The report should be professional in appearance, be free of any grammatical errors, and the graphical display of data should be labeled appropriately and show the data from the report pulled off the CDC site. Not including the cover page and references, your body of written work should be at least 7 – 10 pages double spaced or at least 4 – 7 pages single spaced including graphs, figures, and tables. You will be required to use the most recent three years of data for your project, which will give you the opportunity to compare different years of data and to discover any trends for smoking and tobacco use. See the grading rubric for additional information and how your project will be graded.

 

Your statistics project will be graded on 8 components, with bullet points labeling some tips that can greatly enhance your statistics project. The bullet points are recommendations, but the highest project grades will answer most or all of these bullet points properly. For a formal research paper that you see in numerous articles today, components 2 through 8 are significant and will be required for your project. Finally, note that each component has a designated point value assigned. The computation of statistics, display of data, and results components of your project will be weighted more heavily than the other components of your project because, after all, this is a health statistics class.

 

The due date for the Statistics Project is Monday, December 6, 2021, at 5p ET. NO LATE STATISTICS PROJECTS will be accepted WITHOUT PRIOR APPROVAL and with extenuating circumstances.
