National education officials are concerned that there may be a large number of low-income students who are eligible for free lunches in their schools. They also believe that the percentage of students eligible for free lunches is larger in rural areas. As part of a larger research study, you have been asked to determine if rural counties have a greater percentage of students eligible for free lunches compared to urban residents. As your study begins you obtain the data file Food Nutrition Atlas-described in the Chapter 9 appendix-which contains a number of health and nutrition variables measured over counties in the United States. Perform an analysis to determine if there is strong evidence to conclude that rural residents have higher rates of free-lunch eligibility and prepare a short report on your results.
