b. Determine the mean and the median attendance per team. Does one measure of central tendency seem better, or more representative, than the other?
c. Determine the mean and the median number of home runs per team. Does one measure of central tendency seem better, or more representative, than the other?
d. Determine the rate of increase in players' salaries from 1989 to 2000. As a basis of comparison,in 1988 the Consumer Price Index was 118.3, in 2000 it was 166.9. Compute the rate of inflation in the Consumer Price Index and compare it to the rate of increase in baseball players' salaries.

71. Refer to the OECD data (Appendix L), which reports information on census, economic, and business data for 29 selected countries.
a. Compute the mean, median, and mode for the variable employment. Which measure of central tendency seems to be most representative of the data?
b. Compute the mean, median, and mode of the percentage of the population over the age of 65. Which measure of central tendency is most representative of the data?
