You have gained a short-term internship working as a junior data analyst in your city council’s employment division. Your supervisor has commissioned you a task to assist her in examining the relationship between the number of hours worked per week and income earned per year amongst the profession of casual bookkeepers. A random sample of 200 bookkeepers from different age groups who work in small to medium-sized accounting firms across different suburbs in the city were selected for collecting the data on the two associated variables. These data are stored in the .xls file attached.

Your supervisor has categorised the data into six age group categories and four suburb categories. She further calculated the frequencies for each category and presented the information in the tables below.

- Second, your supervisor would like to use an appropriate graphical descriptive technique in presenting summaries of the data on each of the two variables: hours narked /ter meek and income earned /ter year. Refer to the .xls tile attached.

- Your supervisor believes that using 9 class intervals would be besi in construciing

a hisiogjam for each of the two variables. Explain how your supervisor concluded 9 as the appropriate number of class intervals. :i mad;

- Your supervisor suggests using class intervals listed below:
- 10 <X < 15, 15 < X <20,…, 50 < X < 55 for the hours per week variable, and
- 20 < X < 25,25 < X < .30…… 60 < X < 65 for ihe yearly income variable

The emphasis here would be for you to demonstrate your skills in data visualization and descriptive data analysis using graphical and numerical techniques taught in modules six to eight of our course. Moreover, drawing from the graphical and numerical outputs obtained, students are to present a report {fVOtt words maximum in word length). In your report, please ensure that you cover the following items:

(a) Identification of the type of daia you have. 2 marks

{b) Discussion on why you chose certain graphical technique/s for the data you have.
