1. Is anyone else doing the course work about GP waiting times? I don't even know where to start! I've got my hypothesis: 'The response rate is higher in the south than the north' but I just don't know where to go from this! I've colour coded the data but even the data is hurting my eyes! HELP

I'm not doing this but a few things to start:
Have you defined where counts as north and where counts as south? This is important to do before you start
Calculate the average response rate in the south and the north and compare them.
Is there a trend the further south they get, the higher the response rate (could be calculated with spearman's rank, if you set the northern most point and then calculated the distance between there and each place)
