In an April 18, 2010 Pew Research Center report entitled Distrust, Discontent, Anger and Partisan Rancor—The People and Their Government, 2505 U.S. adults were asked, “Which is the bigger problem with the Federal government?” Of the respondents, 38% said that Federal government has the wrong priorities (W), 50% said that it runs programs inefficiently (I), and 12% had no opinion or did not know (N). Recently 44 randomly selected people were asked the same question, and their responses were as follows:
a. Prepare a frequency distribution for these data.
b. Calculate the relative frequencies and percentages for all classes.
c. Draw a bar graph for the frequency distribution and a pie chart for the percentage distribution.
d. What percentage of these respondents mentioned “Federal government has the wrong priorities” as the bigger problem?
