I have been asked to analyse the following data using linear analysis, mean standard deviation and ANOVA. However the data presented is supposed to be continuous but for small values they have grouped them as less then 5 almost like discrete.
They represent the ages of children using facilities on a given day of the week from 0-16.
<5
6
6
7
9
<5
<5
<5
11
13
<5
How should I approach the analysis of this data?
Do I remove the <5's and half the sample population can I take a confidence interval for the mean? If I include a range of <5's and a mean without the 5's?
Please help
