Using This Link Https Ucr Gov Crime In The U S 2016 Crime In The U 2016 Tables
Using this link: https://ucr.fbi.gov/crime-in-the-u.s/2016/crime-in-the-u.s.-2016/tables/table-12 I am trying to perform a one sample t-test. I have used the following as my outline for performing the t-test which I created myself:
a) Target population:
All reported homicides by rifles in the United States
b) Research variable:
Total Homicide by Rifle
c) Research question:
Is the average reported Homicide by rifle’s in the US more than 300 per year?
d) Expected result:
I predict the average reported yearly homicide by rifles in the US will be more than 300 per year. According to http://www.gunfacts.info/gun-control-myths/assault-weapons/, “Fewer than 2% of criminals that commit violent crimes used assault weapons”.
I am being told:
“300 is not an average, an average means all items are added/summed and divided by the total/n.
