Statistics Based Analysis

  • Background:
    Pelican Stores, a division of National Clothing, is a chain of women’s apparel stores operating throughout the USA. The chain recently ran a promotion which discount coupons were sent to customers of other National Clothing stores. Data collected for a sample of 100 in-store credit card transactions at Pelican Stores during one day while the promotion was running were collected in the file named PelicanStoresdata.xls found in this week’s Module. The proprietary card method of payment refer to charges made using a National Clothing charge card. Customers who made a purchase using a discount coupon are referred to as promotional customers and customers who made a purchase but did not use a discount coupon are referred to as regular customers. (Note: management considers the sales made to people presenting the promotional coupons as sales it would not otherwise make and would hopefully encourage those customers to return). (Adapted from 2013, “Essentials of Modern Business Statistics With Microsoft Excel” from Cengage Publishing)
