Introduction

???Jake Crockford ? ??10FG ? ? Statistics Coursework ? Statistics Coursework: Project Design Project Title: Musical Styles What I am going to find out- 1. ~ Does age affect the music styles you like? 2. ~ Does having children encourage parents to listen to more modern styles? 3. ~ Do females spend longer listening to music than males? 4. ~ Is the '70s most popular in the 41-45 age group 5. ~ Do year 10s spend more time listening to music than year 7s? Hypothesis 1 Age does affect the music styles you like; more 11-15 year olds will prefer "Emo" music than older people. I need to know:- * Age group * Preferred music styles I will show this data by using tally charts for each age group like this: Age 21-25 Style � Frequency '50s � / '60s � /// '70s � / '80s � // '90s � Classical � / Etc � I will use the mode to show what are the favoured styles for each age group to see whether different ages like different styles. The only statistical calculation I will use for this hypothesis is the mode. Hypothesis 2 Having children does encourage parents to listen to more modern styles. I need to know:- * Whether they have children * Age of person * Age of child/children I will show this data by firstly deciding how modern the music styles are and representing them with numbers for instance classical music could have a 'modernity' of 1 and blues could have a modernity of 2 etc. Then I will calculate the average modernity for the parents of each group and represent it in a line graph. For example- I collected information from 4 adults who had children aged 6-10 Adult 1 had a modernity of 4 Adult 2 had a modernity of 4 Adult 3 had a modernity of 6 Adult 4 had a modernity of 3 Average modernity of parents of children aged 6-10= 4.25 I will then do this with each age group (of children) ...read more.

I can also support my hypothesis, that more 11-15 year olds will like emo music than older people, is true:- Percentage of 11-15 year olds that like emo music = 23% Percentage of 16+ year olds that like emo music = 4.5% As 23% is greater than 4.5% this supports my hypothesis that emo is most popular in the 11-15 age group than any other. ...read more.
