Problem 22BSC

Parking Meter Theft Listed below are amounts (in millions of dollars) collected from parking meters by Brinks and others in New York City during similar time periods. A larger data set was used to convict five Brinks employees of grand larceny. The data were provided by the attorney for New York City, and they are listed on the DASL web site. Do the limited data listed here show evidence of stealing by Brinks employees?

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution 22BSC

  1. The mean amount collected from parking meters by Brinks in New York City is $1.55 million.

        The mean amount collected from parking meters by others in New York City is $1.73 million.

  1. Tthe median amount collected from parking meters by Brinks in New York City is $1.55 million.

        The median amount collected from parking meters by others in New York City is $1.65 million.

The two sets results of mean amount collected by others (not Brinks) $1.65 million is more than that of Brinks $1.55 million. However, that difference is very less. Therefore, we cannot say that the difference amount stolen by Brinks employees.
