## How common is drinking over the “moderate level” among your friends/family, and has this become a cultural norm?

Considering all the social and physical costs associated with its use, why is alcohol so often perceived as acceptable and safe for social use & why do so many people often forget about alcohol’s many known harmful consequences?  What, specifically, do you think has kept alcohol so popular through all these years?  What have your own experiences with alcohol been like?  Were any of you surprised to learn that “moderate drinking” comprised of only one drink a day for women and two drinks a day for men?  How common is drinking over the “moderate level” among your friends/family, and has this become a cultural norm?  Beyond just the legal drinking age, why do you think America in particular has such an issue with binge-drinking?

## Determine the mean of the age of the women in the Gestation Demographics SEU dataset.

Using the Gestation Demographics provided (file attached), perform the following problems using RStudio.

Create a simple distribution graph (histogram) where we will explore the age of women after giving birth to their first child. Remember that a histogram consists of parallel vertical bars that show the frequency distribution of a quantitative variable in the graph.

See the example in Introductory Statistics with R on pages 71-72. The area of each bar is equal to the frequency of items found in each class.

Determine the mean of the age of the women in the Gestation Demographics SEU dataset.

Test the hypothesis that the mean age (μ = μ0) for women is 37 years in the Gestation Demographics SEU dataset.

Print your plots to PDF or take screenshots and include with your submission. Present your findings in a Word document, with a title page included.

Your submission should be as many pages as you need to display your findings.
