## Problem Description:

In this statistical analysis assignment, we analyze and compare key health indicators for two regions of the United States: Mid-Atlantic cities and New England cities. Specifically, we investigate rates of infant mortality, high school non-completion, drug overdose, and suicide for each region. By examining these statistics, we aim to gain insights into the health and educational outcomes of these areas.
