In this investigation I am going to look into the number of goals scored against the league position in the 2002/03 season.

I want to take 5 teams out of the league because this gives a variety data so it will be accurate. To get these teams I will use a random numbers devise and the numbers it says I will use the corresponding league position e.g. if it picks out number 5 I would use the team that came 5th in the league which was Liverpool. I am using this method because it is easy to use and it will give a cross-section of the league. That should help me get accurate data.

Aston Villa






Man Utd



West Ham



Man City

I will now look to see weather the amount of goals scored against makes a difference. I will

Graph 5

This graph shows that point at which a positive goal difference changes to being a negative goal difference. Using the graph I have determined the cross over point to be 8th position. That means only 40% of team’s finish with a positive goal difference.


My conclusion is that there is a strong correlation between goals scored and league position. I have came to this conclusion thought analysing all the data. Also I have found that the top teams share most of the goals and the league is unevenly balanced. I have come to this conclusion because of the position of the cross over point not being half way.

    0.836 where +1 is perfect positive correlation and -1 is perfect negative correlation. This shows that boys had a substantially more positive correlation than girls, and therefore relates better with my original alternative hypothesis - which was that students who perform well academically have higher self-esteem than those who perform poorly.

  2. IQ Investigation

    give each student in each year a unique number and use a random number table to select an unbiased sample from each year (based on what I worked out the sample size needed to be).
