Active Management of Labor (AML) was introduced in the 1960s to reduce the amount of time a woman spends in labor during the birth process. R. Rogers et al. conducted a study to determine whether AML also translates into a reduction in delivery cost to the patient. They reported their findings in the paper “Active Management of Labor: A Cost Analysis of a Randomized Controlled Trial” (Western Journal of Medicine, Vol. 172, pp. 240–243). The following table displays the costs, in dollars, of eight randomly sampled AML deliveries.
a. Mean.
b. Median.
c. Mode(s).
For the mean and the median, round each answer to one more decimal place than that used for the observations.
