Question 1 (5 + 15 = 20 marks)

OZSTORE is an Australian based department store operating since 1983. The very first OZSTORE store was started in Melbourne and later the operation was expanded to Sydney and Perth. Also, OZSTORE started a new online store in 2012 to serve all around Australia and overseas customers. Currently the OZSTORE’s active customer base is approximately 50,000 local customers excluding those who shop online.

OZSTORE has a loyalty program started on their tenth anniversary. There are three different tiers of membership namely Blue tier, Silver tier, and Platinum tier. OZSTORE has concerns over the lack of popularity of its loyalty program, particularly with younger customers. They have conducted a survey of 300 customers randomly selected.

OZSTORE provided you with the dataset (“data_question1&2.xlsx”). You are asked to help OZSTORE understand the data and obtain the insights.

  1. What is the best central tendency statistic for Age in this dataset?
  2. Using regression analysis investigate the effect of customers’ Age and purchase channel (i.e., shopping at OZSTORE online store vs. not shopping at the online store) on their average spending during a visit. What insights can you draw? What would you recommend OZSTORE do based on these insights?


Question 2 (15 marks)

What factors influence the probability of an OZSTORE customer to become a member of the company’s loyalty program? What insights can you draw? What will you recommend OZSTORE to do based on these insights?
