# Question: In a national survey conducted by the Centers for Disease

In a national survey conducted by the Centers for Disease Control to determine health-risk behaviors among college students, college students were asked, “How often do you wear a seat belt when driving a car?” The frequencies were as follows:
Response ....... Frequency
I do not drive a car ... 249
Never ......... 118
Rarely ......... 249
Sometimes ...... 345
Most of the time .... 716
Always ........ 3093
(a) Construct a relative frequency distribution.
(b) What percentage of respondents answered “Always”?
(c) What percentage of respondents answered “Never” or “Rarely”?
(d) Construct a frequency bar graph.
(e) Construct a relative frequency bar graph.
(f ) Construct a pie chart.
(g) Compute the relative frequencies of “Never,” “Rarely,” “Sometimes,” “Most of the time,” and “Always,” excluding those that do not drive. Compare with those in Problem 13. What might you conclude?
(h) Suppose that a representative from the Centers for Disease Control says, “2.5% of the college students in this survey responded that they never wear a seat belt.” Is this a descriptive or inferential statement?
