Data Analytics Exercise 3 Fall 2020
In this exercise, students will conduct a One-Way ANOVA using SAS. The student will create a summary report of their analysis and create an informative graphic that is included in a business memorandum that provides a recommendation based on their analysis of the dataset.
Our research question is “Is there a difference in employee pay by location for our company?” You need to turn this question into a statistical question that you can answer using this data.
To help you get started, we have provided an additional video presentation and PowerPoint discussing the concept of ANOVA. You need to be logged into your my.troy.edu account to access these videos.
Note: You at a minimum you required to provide this example of Summary and Anova Tables required to show you performed the ANOVA in SAS:

|This criterion is linked to a Learning OutcomeEvidenceAppropriate tables and graphs. This should include graphs/plots to verify the assumptions, a summary statistics table, the ANOVA results, boxplots, etc.||

Appropriate tables and figures should be referenced.||

The conclusion is the plain language answer to the research question and what steps we should take next to find the answer to our question.
