##### Assignment Scenario

You are evaluating the mental health services provided to children by your agency. The agency provides trauma-informed counseling services to children and youth, ages 5–18. The agency’s goal is to have a relatively equal distribution of children and youth, in terms of ages, who seek services.

You will complete a frequency distribution of the number and ages of children who accessed services within your community agency over the past month. You will need to provide a histogram and summary of your analysis. Consider the implications of the findings as you plan for next year’s programming.

##### Assignment Instructions

Using the Unit 2 Dataset 2 given in the resources, respond to the following prompts:

1. Open the Unit 2 Dataset 2 file (given in the resources) in JASP.
2. Develop a histogram to demonstrate the number of children and their ages. Refer to the JASP Tutorial Video: Histograms and Pie Charts, given in the resources.
3. Consider that the main goal for using frequency distribution is to simplify large datasets. Graphs provide us with a tool to interpret the data. Addressing the prompts below, provide a brief narrative summary that you would provide to the Ray Foundation to describe the age of children and frequency of services used.
• Interpret the data displayed in the histogram output graphs you created.
• What trends do you see in the usage of mental health services?
• How do these trends affect your planning for the program?
• What would be your next steps if you wanted to see a representation of all age groups at your agency
