    Question: Many people believe that abnormal behavior is more likely to occur during a full moon. As a test for empirical evidence to support this belief, a study was conducted based on admission of new clients over a one year period by lunar phases:

    Full Moon.....New Moon.....First Quarter......Third Quarter
    62.......................50.................. 60.......................56

    At the .05 significance level, is there a difference in the mental patient admission based on a lunar phase?
