# statistics report

Project Two Guidelines and Rubric

**Scenario**

You are a data analyst for a basketball team. You have found a large set of historical data, and are working to analyze and find patterns in the data set. The coach of the team and your management have requested that you perform several hypothesis tests to find the statistical significance of the claims that are being made about your team. This analysis will provide evidence to validate critical claims and get statistically valid findings that will help make key decisions to make the team better in upcoming seasons. You will use the Python programming language to perform statistical analysis and will also need to present a report of your findings to the team’s management. Since the managers are not data analysts, you will need to interpret your findings and describe their practical implications. The managers will use your report to find areas where the team can improve its performance.

**Note:** This data set has been “cleaned” for the purposes of this assignment.

**Directions**

For this project, you will submit the **Python script** you used to make your calculations and a **summary report** explaining your findings.

**Python Script:**To complete the tasks listed below, open the Project Two Jupyter Notebook link in the Assignment Information module. Your project contains the NBA data set and a Jupyter Notebook with your Python scripts. In the notebook, you will find step-by-step instructions and code blocks that will help you complete the following tasks:**Hypothesis tests for a population parameter**- Hypothesis tests for a population mean
- Hypothesis test for a population proportion

**Hypothesis test for the difference between two population parameters**- Hypothesis test for difference between two population means

**Summary Report:**Once you have completed all the steps in your Python script, you will create a summary report to present your findings. Use the provided template to create your report. You must complete**each**of the following sections:**Introduction**: Set the context for your scenario and the analyses you will be performing.**Hypothesis tests for the population mean**: Discuss all steps of the hypothesis tests and interpret your results.**Hypothesis test for the population proportion**: Discuss all steps of the hypothesis test and interpret your results.**Hypothesis test for the difference between two population means**: Discuss all steps of the hypothesis test and interpret your results.**Conclusion**: Summarize your findings and explain their practical implications.
