A Good Deal?

Do students at Florida's public universities get a good deal? How do tuitions here compare with those around the country?

 

The files below contain data on Florida university tuitions and data on the average tuition at public universities throughout the country.

 

We'll use it in several ways to practice our skills and to see how even a little bit of analysis can give important context to routine stories.

 

tuitions.xls: Tuitions at public universities in Florida. The data we worked on already. tuition-us.xls: Tuition at public universities around the country. (Excel) tuition-us.pdf: Tuition at public universities around the country. (PDF)
