In the following summary of a statistical report, tell what crucial information is missing and what more you would want to know before you acted on the report.
A news program reports on a Survey of America's Top Hospitals which found that "only ten hospitals achieved a rare 48 out of a possible 50 rating and none of those hospitals are in the Windy City."
◦ The report appears to be making a statement about the quality of hospitals in Chicago (the "Windy City"), but much information is missing. What about hospitals with ratings of 49 or 50? What criteria were used for the ratings? Who actually did the rating?
◦ The sample size and population size are given. However, no information is given about the meaning of "rating" or "rare" or about who actually did the rating.
