Acne: A Comparative Study in Relation with Gender and Race


Introduction:

August 23, 2011

Thousands and even millions of people both teenagers and adults what they do when they woke up in the morning is to view or watch themselves in the mirror, looking for some flaws. We would find ourselves painfully staring at our reflection in the mirror. Why the bloody scabbing, unsightly bumps, and burning inflammation of our skin? Acne also called as pimples, zit or tigyawat in Tagalog, is a common skin disease that typically affects adolescents and young adults. Hundreds of treatment products exist for clear skin, yet there is still no cure for this dreadful and hideous disease. Acne has infected almost everyone in their life but only some were affected severely that would really affect their self esteem and confidence, personally this have been my problem for my whole college life. This has affected the way I think, the way I do things and the way I prioritize my responsibilities. It has affected everything that I want my life to go upon to; to be able to make new friends and go out with them in events and parties, to be able to court the girl I like, to be able to go out from my room and have that confidence and pride to myself without having a single doubt at myself of having this terrible flaw. Going to school has always been so hard and stressing for me, every time I take a bath and see my reflection in the mirror, every time I wash my face then suddenly feel the bumps in my skin. Commuting really takes the challenge in my day to day activity, people usually looks at my face and then suddenly looks away; deep in my mind they were curious on how I got this acne that looks so monstrous. Acne affects approximately 85% of teenagers and young adults, ages 12 to 24. The disease usually starts in adolescence, with the onset of puberty (Acne statistics, n.d.). Acne occurs more commonly on the face, because it is the area with the highest concentration of oil producing glands. However, it is important to know that acne can occur on the neck, chest, back, arms, legs, and of the body (Mitchell & Dudley, 2002). Though clogged pores cause acne, there are several reasons why these pores are blocked initially. One explanation for acne is genetics. If a person has acne, it is likely his

or her children will also have acne. Stress and physical irritation are widely believed to worsen acne. It is debatable among dermatologists whether diet and exercise affects the condition (Acne statistics, n.d.). Acne is one of the most common diseases, as almost everyone worldwide has acne to some extent during puberty. The effects of acne, including physical and emotional problems, can be very serious. Researchers continue to look for a cure for this ubiquitous disease, such that millions of people can look in the mirror and have a clear face looking back at them. This is the reason why I want to make a study about acne, on how it is affected by race and gender differences affects the severity and outcome of acne to an individual or to a group. This paper has the following objectives: A. To determine if gender affects how severe or frequent acne would occur. B. To determine if race is one of the factors that affects the severity of acne.

Scope, Limitations and Nature of the Study: The focus of the study is to find out if gender and race are the key factors that affect the production or outbreak of acne. Some people believe that the female population is greatly affected by acne more than those of the male population. They say that genetics has a primal role on the glands that produces this oil called sebum that greatly affects the outbreaks of acne. Race as they say also is one factor to be considered, they say that Caucasians tend to be more acne-prone than any of the other races and is given the acne equation of, [Caucasian>Asians>Hispanic>Blacks], having the Black population as having less acne than of the other three races. There are two important key variables that must be used in this study, the gender difference and the racial agenda.

Key Variables: Gender: A set of classes that together include all nouns, membership in a particular class being shown by the form of the noun itself or by the form or choice of words that modify, replace sex. Can be grouped by male and female.

Race: An arbitrary classification of modern humans, sometimes, especially formerly, based on any or a combination of various physical characteristics, as skin color, facial form, or eye shape, and now frequently based on such genetic markers as blood groups. Can be grouped by Caucasian, Asian, Hispanic and Negro.

[Encarta Encyclopedia (2010)] The study includes 77 major countries that are grouped by sub-heritage or continental difference. The observations on the number of acne infected male and female based on the total population would be the basis for the computation of the sample mean, sample standard deviation, and sample variance. Other basis also would be the infected race of Caucasian, Asians, Hispanic, and Negro. To be able to fully understand the situations of each category their corresponding sample mean, sample standard deviation, and sample variance will be computed to show the distribution of infected individuals across each category. Aside from the basics of mean, variances, and standard deviation, other descriptive statistics would also be presented to the reader to better understand the data. Other statistical measure would also be used to better clarify each category of study such as the frequency table, hypothesis testing, confidence intervals, the ANOVA test, the chi-square analysis and much more.

Descriptive Statistics A. Acne for Males and Females (Totality)

August 23, 2011

To be able to understand if gender affects the production of acne, we must look at the data presented at Table 1, it shows there the total population of acne infected individuals in selected countries. Based on percentage points the lowest percentage points of males infected in a country is .4 and the highest being .52. In the female acne infected population of a country the lowest percentage is .48 and the highest being .6 of the total acne population of the country. Based on the data presented in Table 1, we can say that the female population is predominantly more affected than of the males in regards of having acne troubles but we cannot conclude that because other factors and test must be made to be able to comply and conclude that such event is true. Countries that have the lowest percentage of .4 of acne infected boys are Sudan and Zimbabwe. Country that has the lowest percentage of .48 of acne infected boys is Denmark.

In the Descriptive Statistic we can see in Table 2-1 that the total population of countries used was 77 (n=77). The mean of acne infected boys are 1,894,901.74 and for the girls are 2,272,059.82. The study also reveals that the sample variance, which shows the dispersion or variation of observations in the population has a difference of 11,457,244,388,985 in favor of the girls population and the standard deviation, which is the square root of the sample variance have a difference of 930,795.64. The standard deviation observed in the female population clustered nearer the mean shown in the same year than the previous study therefore implying that the difference computed from the statistical average is smaller. We can see here now that the sample standard deviation for the boys is closer to its mean than those of the girls population hinting that the computed average of it smaller than the other one.

To better understand this situation I grouped now that total population to 4 depending on its geography and race factor to better understands the breakdown of the data. Let us see now if the mean, standard deviation and sample variance would change from the observations of the breakdown.

B. Acne for Males and Females (North and South America) In the Descriptive Statistic we can see in Table 2-2 that the total population of countries used was 13 (n=13). The mean of acne infected boys are 1,590,280.7 and for the girls are 2,043,964.2. The study also reveals that the sample variance, which shows the dispersion or variation of observations in the population has a difference of 4,764,311,634,744.8 in favor of the girls population and the standard deviation, which is the square root of the sample variance have a difference of 867,552.98. The standard deviation observed in the female population clustered nearer the mean shown in the same year than the previous study therefore implying that the difference computed from the statistical average is smaller. We can see here now that the sample standard deviation for the boys is closer to its mean than those of the girls population hinting that the computed average of it smaller than the other one. The result is almost the same of the descriptive statistics of the totality as a whole.

C. Acne for Males and Females (Europe) In the Descriptive Statistic we can see in Table 2-3 that the total population of countries used was 24 (n=24). The mean of acne infected boys are 588,478.25 and for the girls are 719,613.79. The study also reveals that the sample variance, which shows the dispersion or variation of observations in the population has a difference of 260,745,779,834 in favor of the girls population and the standard deviation, which is the

square root of the sample variance have a difference of 166,115.53. The standard deviation observed in the female population clustered nearer the mean shown in the same year than the previous study therefore implying that the difference computed from the statistical average is smaller. We can see here now that the sample standard deviation for the boys is closer to its mean than those of the girls population hinting that the computed average of it smaller than the other one. The result is almost the same of the descriptive statistics of the totality as a whole.

D. Acne for Males and Females (Asia and the Pacific) In the Descriptive Statistic we can see in Table 2-1 that the total population of countries used was 24 (n=24). The mean of acne infected boys are 4,230,215.11 and for the girls are 4,947,315.12. The study also reveals that the sample variance, which shows the dispersion or variation of observations in the population has a difference of 32,013,084,235,275 in favor of the girls population and the standard deviation, which is the square root of the sample variance have a difference of 1,525,443.58. The standard deviation observed in the female population clustered nearer the mean shown in the same year than the previous study therefore implying that the difference computed from the statistical average is smaller. We can see here now that the sample standard deviation for the boys is closer to its mean than those of the girls population hinting that the computed average of it smaller than the other one. The result is almost the same of the descriptive statistics of the totality as a whole.

E. Acne for Males and Females (Africa) In the Descriptive Statistic we can see in Table 2-5 that the total population of countries used was 16 (n=16). The mean of acne infected

Acne: A Comparative Study in Relation with Gender and Race

August 23, 2011

boys are 599,071.52 and for the girls are 773,173.56. The study also reveals that the sample variance, which shows the dispersion or variation of observations in the population has a difference of 331,426,072,957.48 in favor of the girls population and the standard deviation, which is the square root of the sample variance have a difference of 212,245.01. The standard deviation observed in the female population clustered nearer the mean shown in the same year than the previous study therefore implying that the difference computed from the statistical average is smaller. We can see here now that the sample standard deviation for the boys is closer to its mean than those of the girls population hinting that the computed average of it smaller than the other one. The result is almost the same of the descriptive statistics of the totality as a whole.

Frequency Distribution Table A. The Male Population Across the 77 samples from different counties, I used the percentage points of male and female acne infected population as in comparison of the total population because the population of each countys difference is relatively high in comparison and it is easier and more convenient to analyze the percentage points of this data that analyzing the exact numerical values for each. Looking at Table 3-1, in the frequency table we can see that the distance of the lower and the upper interval is at 2% starting from 40 up to 54 consisting of 7 sets of placement. We can see that the frequency of the male population having acne is greatest at the 40 < 42 bracket meaning that many countries have more acne infected females in comparison of the males. We can also see in the data that only 9 countries out of 77 has greater acne infected male than that of the females. The frequency distribution table

Dr. Cesar Rufino - ECOSTAT

Acne: A Comparative Study in Relation with Gender and Race

is great in assessing and analyzing the data of which each category falls upon into. B. The Female Population Looking at Table 3-2, in the frequency table we can see that the distance of the lower and the upper interval is at 2% starting from 48 up to 62 consisting of 7 sets of placement. We can see that the frequency of the female population having acne is greatest at the 58 < 60 bracket meaning that many countries have more acne infected females in comparison of the males. We can also see in the data that only 6 countries or less out of 77 has greater acne infected male than that of the females.

Looking up at the table of the histogram of the frequency table we could greatly analyze which part of the categories have the highest number of population, this could really help us understand more and easier the information that is presented by the study.

Inferential Statistics After getting the descriptive statistics of the data, lets now move on to the inferential statistics to be able to answer our main problem and to further analyze and conclude what the data shows us. This kind of statistics would give us concrete proof and proper analysis.

Confidence Interval For us to determine the estimated intervals we would the confident interval statistics; a confidence interval gives an estimated range of values which is likely to include an unknown population parameter, the estimated range being calculated from a given set of sample data. (John H. McColl's Statistics Glossary). For this study I used a 95% confidence level because the current dates were not exact and only sample sets were presented by the data. There might be some other people who have been counted of the population. Based on the population used which is n=77 (countries) out of the whole countries, we can say that this is a good sample size because of its concrete and near numbers to the actual size. Looking at Table 4-1, we can see the Confidence Intervals of the Mean for the boys. At 95% confidence level we can see that the lowest point is 624,182.0018 while the highest point is 3,165,621.4837. Looking at the other table 4-2, we can see here the Confidence Intervals of the Mean for the girls. At 95% confidence level we can see that the lowest point is 793,438.8441 while the highest point is 3,750,680.7966.

Hypothesis Testing For this experiment we will now find out if we are going to accept or reject the mean and variances that acne has equal outbreaks in both males and females. The null hypothesis is that acne has equal outbreaks in both males and females and the alternative hypothesis is that gender affects acne outbreaks. Looking at Table 5-1, having a population size of n=77, we can see here that the p-value is equal to .7046 which is not significant the p-value did not fall in the rejection of null hypothesis so there is basically no hard evidence against the hypothesized mean. We accept now the null hypothesis.

Let: X = Means of Male, Y = Means of Female Ho = X = Y H1 = X Y

At Significance Level of 95%

One-Factor ANOVA Another way of testing or experimenting if we are going to accept or reject the null hypothesis is the one-factor ANOVA, we now look at Table 6-1, based on the population size of n=77, we then use the one-factor ANOVA as an experiment to answer the problem, after imputing and analyzing the data we can see that the p-value resulted to a .7051 and we got an F of 0.14 since CR: F<p-value or 0.14<0.7051 we can conclude that it is not significant so we must accept the null hypothesis. Both the hypothesis testing and the onefactor ANOVA proved that gender has no relation to acne breakouts but is caused by some other factors.

Chi-square Analysis for Independence We are not testing for the chi-square analysis for independence we would now look at Table 7-1, we then test the sample data for their independence level, almost all of the sample population observed and expected percent are almost equal resulting to a near 0% chi-squared only certain countries showed significant result which is the USA and India with 30.8% and 27.5% respectively. This means that larger geography and countries that are more populated differ from their expected outcome than the rest of the data. Conclusion and Recommendation In my paper we could see the difference in the descriptive statistics and the inferential statistics, in the descriptive statistics we could see the simple result of mean, median, simple variance and standard deviation, and we could compare and contrast the difference of each result to the totality as a whole. In the descriptive statistic we could easily infer that the female population is more prone to the male population if we are going to based it in numerical values. In the inferential statistics we are given a more detailed answer and experiment that is able to explain the direct and close relationship of each data. In here we have found out that acne and genders and race have no direct contact or is independent to one another. Reference
