Description

These data are annual incomes in 2005 for 2,584 Americans who were selected in the National Longitudinal Study of Youth 1979, who were available for re- interview in 2006, and who had paying jobs in 2005, along with the quartile of their AFQT (IQ) test score taken in 1981. How strong is the evidence that the distributions of 2005 annual incomes differ in the four populations? By how many dollars or by what percent does the distribution of 2005 incomes for those within the highest (fourth) quartile of IQ test scores exceed the distribution for the lowest (first) quartile?
