The marketing department in your organization believes that customers with more education are likely to have higher incomes than those with less education. Based on analysis previously conducted showing that zip codes within 3 miles of a college campus in the regional market contain a population that is significantly more educated than other zip codes, the department director proposes an ad campaign targeting these zip codes to reach more of these highly educated individuals. The department director received questions from the executive team about the evidence they have showing that those with more education, in fact, have significantly higher incomes. The department director has asked you to analyze existing customer data to determine whether a relationship exists between level of education and income.
