The exercises in this section provide an opportunity to practice applying some of the basic methods discussed in this book using this data set. Section 23.2 lists the exercises and requests an analysis that uses a specific method referenced in an earlier chapter. The SAS code for performing these exercises is shown in Appendix G. Section 23.3 provides a critique of the methods used and a discussion of their appropriateness, based on the assumptions the analyst is willing to make.
