A medical researcher wants to study the effects of various factors on pulse rates. The researcher records the height, weight, gender, smoking preference, activity level, and resting pulse rate of 91 undergraduate students. The researcher then randomly divides the students into two groups. The first group runs in place for a minute while the other group stands still. Then, the researcher records the students' pulse rates again.
The researcher wants to summarize count statistics and pulse data for the students in the study, classified by gender and smoking status.
In each cell of the table, Minitab displays the mean pulse rate, the counts, and the row percents, classified by gender and smoking status.
Of the 56 males in the study, 19 are smokers, which is 33.93% of the males in the study. Their mean pulse rate is 72.42 beats per minute (bpm).
