Conduct intensive research on infant mortality rate (IMR) of a country as predicted by the country’s gross domestic product (GDP). Identify resources and locate data from the last 30 years of their selected country’s IMR and GDP.
Based on your research, data for the project will come from approximately 6,000 data points (approximately 200 countries x 30 years) from which you will select 30 data points. This sample of 30-35 observations must come from the same population.
1. Devise a procedure to obtain a RANDOM sample
2.Procedure for gathering data.
3.Questionnaire if one will be used to gather data personally.
4.Ideal data gathering process (what you would do if you had the time and money).
