# IRP Memorandum

### SUMMARY:

In this Independent Research Project (IRP), students provide a business decision recommendation using SAS primarily and Excel as needed to obtain real-world data. The student will create and submit a business report that clearly communicates a recommendation based on their analysis of the data set that includes an analysis of different courses of action using weighted factors. The students will also create a PowerPoint presentation that summarizes their IRP and present their analysis live, via video-teleconference or as a recorded video presentation. The student will also answer questions about their presentation. Note: The IRP should involve either conducting an ANOVA or Regression Analysis using SAS and submitting the complete results including Tables, P value, Pr value, R-square, and graphics to prove you conducted the required SAS analysis. The IRP project should involve your research question findings as previously specified in your “IRP Research Questions and Data Set” exercise. You must also discuss the P, Pr, R-square values and their meaning and why they led to your decision.
As in previous DAX exercises, you must also attach the Summary Descriptive Statistics Table along with the ANOVA Results Table or Regression Results Table. Example ANOVA or Regression Tables required:
