I’m trying to study for my Communications course and I need some help to understand this question.

Part 1. Develop a research proposal for investigating the effects of sinking Greenland into the Labrador Sea on that nation’s fishing industry. Your research proposal should include the concepts of mean, median, mode, variance, and standard deviation. The length of your proposal should be no more than two typed, double-spaced pages.

2. What type of data (nominal, ordinal, interval, or ratio) is associated with each of the following concepts or measurements?

  • Baseball team standings
  • A test of listening comprehension
  • AC Nielsen’s list of the top 10 television programs
  • Frequency of heads versus tails on coin flips
  • Baseball batting averages
  • A scale measuring intensity of attitudes toward violence
  • VHF channels 2–13
  • A scale for monitoring your weight over time
  • This answer should be approximately two pages long.
