Homework Help: Normal Model

  1. Oct 14, 2004 #1
    Hi everyone! I need some help. I have to make a normal model from the following data:

    Year.........Deaths Country
    ...............or area/,per 1,000
    ...............population

    2005 , 8.25

    2047 , 9.60
    2048 , 9.59
    2049 , 9.57
    2050 , 9.55

    When I make a histogram do I plot the year on the x-axis and the deaths on the y-axis. When I'm making the normal model what is the x-axis (what do I find the std dev of? The year or the death rate?) Would I put the deaths on the x-axis for the normal model (bell curve)?
