Data Collection SLP 12Data Collection ProjectThe activity that I have considered for the collection of the data for this assessment isthe time it takes me to arrive to my work every day. I decided to collect data on this topicbecause I spend lot of time on the road going to and from work. There are two types ofvariable that I am likely to encounter every day, namely, dependent variable and independentvariable. The dependent variable in my case is the time. I have considered the time as thedependent variable as there are likely to be multiple factors that will impact my commutingfrom my home to work. We know that dependent variable is something that we measure inexperiment and what is also affected during the time of the variable. Dependent variabledepends on the independent variable. A dependent variable cannot exist without anindependent variable. The time it will take me to arrive to work will depend on many factors.The time I started counting on begins from the moment I leave my house and stepsinto car. After that, whatever time I spend is to be counted as the time consumed in reachingthe destination. There are various independent factors that are impacting the amount of time Ispend when I commute such as the traffic, construction, someone known I met on the way,and other things. Every day I am supposed to be to work at 7:30 am. Taken into account thedependent and independent variables, I am sometimes late getting to work. We also knowthat independent variable stands alone.Prior to the collection of the data, I developed a hypothesis that the data collect wouldform the bell curve. The reason behind that will be my early arrival on someday due to notraffic and roadblocks at all, and someday I may arrive very late due to number of hurdles.However, it was found that the data collected for the ten days has not formed the proper bellcurve. It shows right skewed. The reason was that I spent longer duration on road for sevendays from total ten days measured. The reason was that the construction was going on the
