1.3 Changes and updates, as of Nov 15 2020

  • Nov 15 2020: Task 4 in Quantitative Assignment #4—initially posted on Nov 12 2020—initially stated the following: “Create a two-way pivot table (with one variable in rows and another in columns) showing the counts for the variables vocab and female.” As one of you pointed out, the assignment is more streamlined if female is changed to nativeBorn. This change has been made. It is fine to answer the question in either its initial or updated form.
  • Oct 30 2020: List of required deliverables to date has been added to Chapter 1.
