Part A: Introduction

Planning

Original idea

I want to investigate the relationship between the sample and the China mainland. The relationship between those reflects how does the time affect SARS trend in China.

Objectives

March and April are the most important point in the SARS list.

SARS is a very harmful disease, so the death number is the factor that reflects the situation.

Part B: investigation

Background:

The first SARS event happened on the February of 2003. SARS is a disease, which spread very rapidly.

Guangzhou located at southern part of China, it is the biggest economic and cultural center in southern part. The weather of this location is very hot. And population is big.

Because the SARS spread irregular, the individual seasonal effect does not reflects the trend.

For more Further charts to show the trend:

The three points moving mean shows the data has a strong positive correspond distribution. That means the SARS spread very rapidly and killing more people in every individual day. It is the reasons cause the climax occurs on May.

For the results obtained, I arrange the death number into different interval and get different frequency. Showed below:

Discussion: In contrast, no matter the population or the sample showed the SARS spread rapidly and the death number is increasing every day. In fact, the SARS was developing with time, when the weather getting hot, it is getting easier for a disease to spread. Meanwhile, March and April are the ending of spring and the beginning of summer in China. As the weather getting hot, SARS in China getting faster to spread and more people dying for it. Till the May and June, we can predict that the SARS will get to its climax by looking at the trend of SRAS showed above and the hot weather.

Conclusion: Of course, the government has controlled the SARS. SARS will never ever occur any more. However, if we use our Statistics skills to research it, we could know the trend of SARS long times ago. In other words, Statistics predict the feature of SARS. In brief, I had predict SARS had a increasing trend on March and April, however, if I get more currently data about SARS, I can also predict the SARS will be destroy on July by using my Statistics skills…….
