In our study, we delve into vital indicators that paint a clear picture of two distinct regions in the United States. Our detailed analysis of infant mortality rates, high school non-completion, drug overdose, and suicide statistics reveals compelling disparities. These findings offer valuable insights for policymakers and researchers as they seek to address the complex issues surrounding health and education in these regions, ultimately contributing to the betterment of these communities.

## 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.
