Divides' the' values' into' equal' bins
Histogram
Describing* One*Quantitative* Variable
Picture' of' distribution
Leaf-contains' last' digit'of' values
Stem-contains' the'rest' of'the'values4
None-uniform
One-unimodal
Two-bimodal
Three' or' more-multimodal
Shape-number' of' modes' (peaks)
§Skewed' to'the' right' More' smaller' values' trails' off' to'the'
larger' values' (skewed' means' right' is' smaller)
§Skewed' to'the' left-more' larger' values-trails' off' to' the' smaller'
values' (means' left' is'smaller)
Skewed-more' values' on'one' side
Symmetry
Can' impact' statistical' methods
Outliers' (extreme' values)
Interpreting* Histograms* and* Stem* and* Leaf* Displays
Example:
Modes- 1
Skewed-right
Outliers-4'potential' outliers
(n+1)/2'
Median-middle' value' that' divides' histograms' into' two' parts
Add'up'all' the'values' and'divide' by'how'many' points
Mean-average
Center
Mean' and' median' are' different' when' the' distribution' is'skewed' or' outlier' are'
present
Skewed' to'right-mean' >'median
Skewed' to'left-median' >' mean
Report' range' and' IOR' when' reporting' median
Report' standard' deviation' when' reporting' mean
Spread-how' spread' out'are' the' data' points?
Range-max-min
We'will' divide' the'data' into'quartiles' ('four' equal' parts)'
(min)------------- (25th percentile)-------------(median)' ------------- (75th
percentile)' --------------(max)
Q1=' median' of' lower' half
Q3=' median' of' upper' half
IRQ=' Q1-Q3
Interquartile' range-measures' variation' (spread)
Spread
• 5-number' summary-reports' median,' quartiles,' and' max' and' min
5-Number* Summaries
Values' closer' to'mean=' smaller' contribution' to's
