Every year the National Cancer Institute collects and publishes data based on patient demographics. Understanding differences between the groups based on the collected data often inform health care professionals about research, treatment options, or patient education.
Using the data on the “National Cancer Institute Data” Excel spreadsheet, calculate the descriptive statistics indicated below for each of the Race/Ethnicity groups. .
Provide the following descriptive statistics:
- Measures of Central Tendency: Mean, Median, and Mode
