(2 pages of text)
The sinking of the Titanic in April 1912, with more than 1,500 lives lost, can be used to conduct interesting statistical analyses. Demographic information on the passengers includes age, gender, passenger class and point of embarkation. Both crosstabulations and logistic regression tables based on an available dataset provide interesting results about gender and class distinctions in place at that time in history.
This case can be used to teach both crosstabs and logistic regression. There are very interesting results based on gender and class distinctions in place at that time in history.
