Survey on Population of American Intellectual Union

Details: The data set for our course is a sample of a survey conducted on the population of the American Intellectual Union (AIU). It is available via the following link: DataSet with DataSet Key which contains the following nine sections of data that will be used throughout our course:

(1) Gender (2) Age (3) Department (4) Position (5) Tenure (6) Overall Job Satisfaction (7) Intrinsic Job Satisfaction - Satisfaction with the actual performance of the job (8) Extrinsic Job Satisfaction- Things external to the job, e.g., office location, your work colleagues, your own office (cubicle/hard walled office, etc), and (9) Benefits - Health insurance, pension plan, vacation, sick days, etc.

American Intellectual Union (AIU) has assembled a team of researchers in the United States and around the world to study job satisfaction. Congratulations, you have been selected to participate in this massive global undertaking.

The study will require that you examine data, analyze the results, and share the results with groups of other researchers. Job Satisfaction is important to companies large and small and understanding it provides managers with insights into human behavior that can be used to strengthen the company's bottom line.

You will need to examine two of the nine sections of data, one section of qualitative data and one section of quantitative data, from the provided Unit 1 data set. Each section should include all data points. After analyzing your data, it will be necessary to write up a single concise professional report in Word that includes numerical data and graphs. The requirements include providing the data you selected, discussing why the data was selected and what was learned by examining these sets of data. Your analysis should include using Excel to obtain information about the data through the use of three measures of central tendency (mean, median, mode) and the use of two measures of variability (standard deviation and variance). Some measures are appropriate for qualitative data and some are appropriate for quantitative data. If a measure is not applicable, then explain why. You will have to also provide 1 chart/graph for each of the results of the two processed sections of data (2 total), such as a pie or bar chart or a histogram. (A table is NOT a chart/graph.) Ensure that you label the chart/graph clearly. You will then need to discuss what you additionally learned from the results of this process. Explain why charts/graphs are important in conveying information in a visual format and why standard deviation and variation are important. Finally, you will need to combine all of the items above into one comprehensive report. This report must be completed in Microsoft Word and should contain:

An Introduction
The data selected
Discussion (Why you selected your data and what you learned by examining your selected data set.)
The measures of central tendency and variability. (Copy and paste from your Excel process.)
The charts/graphs
Summary (what you learned and why the processes are important.)

Survey on Population of American Intellectual Union


A survey is conducted on the population of American Intellectual Union (AIU). This report presents the dataset of this sample survey in an effective and detailed manner. In order to conduct this survey, mainly two aspects, quantitative and qualitative are considered by the researchers. There are total nine sections of the dataset. This report is based on two sections of dataset tenure and overall job satisfaction. With the help of this research, the researcher has analyzed the main purpose behind the selection of datasets and learning for the selected section. This observation is also based on the statistics methodology through which the researcher has calculated and measured the central tendency or mean, mode and median. It also includes the measure of variability such as variance and standard deviation.

These entire variables are most appropriate to accomplish a qualitative and quantitative survey analysis. In this report, the researcher is also giving the explanation of the data collection with the help of graphical methodology and presentation of charts. With the help of this graphical presentation, it has become very easy for the researcher to analyze the sample data in a visual format. By means of this report, the research is going to analyze the various limitations that are associated with the two sections of the survey analysis tenure and overall job satisfaction among the population of AIU.

The Data Selected

In this sample survey analysis, the dataset has been selected by the researcher which is as ...
