2. Describe plan for data analysis of study variables (descriptive and inferential statistical tests).
Research Background Data:

Dependent variable= Overweight and obesity which will be measured by BMI by comparing weight data before the research and after the research within 6 months.
Actual total research participants are 110 members from four schools (two high schools and two middle schools from economically diverse areas and 60 are girls and 50 are boys).
I want the result to show a negative or inverse correlation which indicates that 60 minutes school based exercise is associated with decrease in obesity among children.
