**STAT 410 96-2 Assignment 3**

Choose a Simple random sample of size 36 from the
Stat Village
population of households. Get estimates and standard errors for the
following parameters:

- Total Government Transfer Payments to households in this population.
- Average Employment Income of Employed persons in these households.
- Percentage of dwellings which are owner-occupied.
- Difference between mean household income of owner occupied houses and
mean household income of other houses.

In order to do this assignment you will have to select a SRS using Minitab
or a random number generator or random number tables (tell me how you did it),
use netscape to click on the sampled units on the
clickable map of the village, save the resulting data in a file,
and get appropriate means and SDs using either Minitab or
SAS. The rest
of the analysis would be done with any computing package or calculator you
like. If you use SAS you can read the file with the data in it using
SAS code which is available through the web from the Stat Village page.
The link SAS shows how to use
proc means, proc sort to get means and standard deviations for
subpopulations.

An example data set as returned by netscape.
Use this data set if you can't get NETSCAPE to show you
the whole statvillage page.

The sasdata step returned.
