A random sample of respondents was drawn from three Latin American countries: Nicaragua, Guatemala, and Costa Rica. The variable of interest is the duration (in months) of stay in the United States during respondents’ first migration to the United States.
Nicaragua: 4, 6, 6, 6, 12, 36, 36, 36, 36, 60, 72, 78, 96, 120, 126, 156, 162, 162, 186, 540
Guatemala: 1, 1, 12, 24, 24, 24, 36, 36, 42, 60, 78, 84, 102, 102, 102, 102,132, 144
Costa Rica: 12, 12, 12, 12, 14, 15, 15, 18, 18, 24, 36, 48, 66, 120, 150, 150, 174, 282, 288
Begin by specifying the level of measurement for the variable of interest here. That is, what is the level of measurement of duration of stay during first U.S. migration?
Explain why the values of 12, 24, and 36 are so common in the data? What do these three values have in common?
Pick two of these countries and compare the mean, median, OR mode for these two countries. Which measure of central tendency did you use and why? Which countries’ migrants stayed the longest?
