Research Question:

Do varying genders (male or female) of human beings, in the Czech Republic, have an affect on their lifespan?


Due to the varying roles, beings of different genders have played throughout evolution, my prediction is set to believe that a female will have a longer lifespan than a male.

        Dependent: Lifespan (Years +- 0.5) (uncertainty)

                -This variable is dependent on the chosen gender. A change in gender will                         affect this variable, and since we are differentiating between the ranges of                         various lifespan according to their genders, it will ultimately affect the data.                 Refer to step 5a/5b.

        Controlled: Location (Cemetery)

                -This variable must stay the same throughout the experiment. A change in                         the location would introduce alternate factors that could affect the dependent                 variable, like various different epidemics, wars, and social factors, that might                 not have been present in the current location. Our samples are also                                 extracted from the ...
