In HMGT 400 Research and Data Analysis in Health Care, exercise #1 requires students to analyze a dataset about hospitals in 2011 and 2012. They are asked to complete a descriptive table and report their findings in a particular format. As a medical professor, I would provide guidance and feedback to the students throughout this assignment.


For this exercise, students will need to download the HMGTHOSP.csv dataset and use Excel to complete the descriptive table. They should report their findings in Table 1, using the prescribed format.

As the professor, I would advise students to carefully read the instructions and refer to the relevant RStudio materials as needed. I would also provide feedback on their completed table, including any errors or areas for improvement.
