ANOVA, Chi-square tests

Question # 3. Refer to the OECD data, which reports information on census, economic, and business data for 29 countries:
a) Categorize the 29 countries, indicating whether they are in Europe, North America, or the Far East. At the .05 significance level, is there a difference in the mean percent of the population over 65 years of age?
b) Use the same categories developed in part (a). Divide the gross national product by the population to create a new variable. This variable shows the per capita GNP. At the .05 significance level, is there a difference in the mean of this variable by geographic region?

OECD Data
X1 = Country
X2 = G7 member (1 - Yes, 0 = No)
X3 = Total Area of country in thousand square kilometers
X4 = Population in thousands
X5 = Percent of population over 65 years of age
X6 = Exchange rate per U S dollar
X7 = Gross domestic product at current exchange rate in billions of dollars
X8 = Energy use in millions of tons of oil equivalent
X9 = Index of total manufacturing (1900 = 100)
X10 = Total labor force in thousands
X11 = Region (1 = Far East, 2 = Europe, 3 = North America)

Question # 4: The manufacturer of a computer terminal reports in its advertising that the mean life of the terminal, under normal use, is 6 years, with a standard deviation of 1.4 years. (Assume this are population values) A sample of 90 units sold 10 years ago revealed the following distribution of the lengths of life. At the, 05 significance level, can the manufacturer conclude that the terminal lives are normally distributed?
Length of life
(years) Frequency
Up to 4 7
4 up to 5 14
5 up to 6 25
6 up to 7 22
7 up to 8 16
8 or more 6

Question # 5
Two hundred managers from various levels were randomly selected and interviewed regarding their concern about environmental issues. The response of each person was tallied into one of three categories: no concern, same concern, and great concern. The results were:
Level of management No concern some concern great concern
Top management 15 13 12
Middle management 20 19 21
Supervisor 7 7 6
Group leader 28 21 31

Use the .01 significance level to determine whether there is a relationship between management level and environmental concern.
