STATS

A researcher conducted a survey on a sample of 2000 college-students in order to examine the relationship between academic achievement and procrastination of studying. Using several indicators and plots of the descriptive statistics, found that in the data were many outlier observations. However, he decided to proceed with the calculation of the correlation coefficient considering the large sample of his research significantly reduces the effect of outliers.
