A.) They do not discuss how the data was collected.
B.) The sample size is 100 films.
C.) There was 100% response rate, because they chose the films and these were not respondents to a survey.
D.) Variables measured were women with speaking roles (at least one word) and then they also recorded the race of the women.  They recorded for each film, whether there was a woman with a speaking role and the race of the woman with the speaking role.
E.) No graphs were used because this was an audio recording.
F.) Sources of bias could be in how they chose the films for the study.  What years were the films released? Also, what types of films are they?
G.) I think a bit more information in the description of these statistics could help.  While it is interesting that there were only 4 out of 100 films which had female minority with a speaking role, we would like to know a bit more about the films in order to draw even more conclusions.  Interesting statistics though.
