Name: __________________________ Assignment Details Part A The graph below shows the pregnancy, birth and abor7on rates for the years 1976-2012. Analyze the graph and answer the ques7ons following it. Fig 1: The pregnancy, birth and abor7on rates for teenagers aged 15-19 (US), 1976-2009, and birth rate, 2010-2012(Fig courtesy: CDC) 1. What is the above graph represen7ng? Explain in one to two sentences in your own words. Read the x axis and y axis carefully. 2. What has been the trend in pregnancy rates for the years shown? In which year(s) was there an increase and approximately how many pregnancies were reported? 3. Study figure 1 above and answer the following a. Is there a correla7on between the pregnancy rates and the live birth rates? b. What was the maximum number of live births recorded and in which year? c. In the years from 1976-2012, which year(s) showed the maximum number of abor7ons and what was that number? 4. What can you predict about the pregnancy rates over the next 10 years? What assump7ons will you make while making your predic7on? Part B The following table shows the number of pregnancies in teenage girls amongst school going and non- school going girls in 2004. Age at Pregnancy Number of Pregnancies Number of girls who acend school (N=1000) Number of girls who do not acend school (N=1000) Total Pregnancies No of girls who acended and did not acend. 12 years 5 2 7 13 years 5 6 11 14 years 10 14 24 15 years 45 60 105 16 years 73 121 194 Total 138 203 341 Where N is the sample size (Means how many individual were in the test) Table 1: This table shows the number of pregnancies in school going and non-school going girls ages 12-16 1. Using the data from the Table 1, draw a graph clearly represen7ng the numbers/values on the X and Y axis. Use the graph above in Part A as an example for making the graph. 2. From your graph, interpret at which age the number of pregnancies in school going and non- school going girls is similar? At which age, did you see the maximum difference in the two categories? 3. Is there any trend (decrease/increase) in number of pregnancies with increase in age? 4. Calculate the percentage of pregnancies in school going girls ages 12-16 and the number of pregnancies in girls (ages 12-16) who did not acend school? To calculate percentage – (# of pregnant girls in group calcula7ng / Total # girls in group) x 100 = % School going girls: _____% Girls not acending school: ____% 5. If the predicted number of pregnancies in year 2020 is 130 in a sample size of 500, what is the percentage of teenage pregnancies? Has there be an increase or decrease in number of teenage pregnancies from past data?
