- 13. MST 103 – Introduction to Statistics and Probability <br />MST 103 – Introduction to Statistics and Probability <br />Population versus Sample <br />A population is a collection of all possible individuals, objects, or <br />measurements of interest. <br />A sample is a portion, or part, of the population of interest <br />Prof. Ahmed Hassen <br />Prof. Ahmed Hassen <br />
- 14. MST 103 – Introduction to Statistics and Probability <br />MST 103 – Introduction to Statistics and Probability <br />Quantitative Variables - Classifications <br />Quantitative variables can be classified as either discrete or continuous. <br />Discrete variables: can only assume certain values and there are usually “gaps” between values. <br />EXAMPLE: the number of bedrooms in a house, or the number of hammers sold at the local Home Depot (1,2,3,...,etc). <br />Continuous variable can assume any value within a specified range. <br />EXAMPLE: The pressure in a tire, the weight of meat, or the height of students in a class. <br />Prof. Ahmed Hassen <br />
- 15. MST 103 – Introduction to Statistics and Probability <br />MST 103 – Introduction to Statistics and Probability <br />Four Levels of Measurement <br />Nominal level –data that is Classified<br />Into Categoriesand cannot be arranged in<br />any particular order. <br />EXAMPLES: eye color, gender, religious affiliation. <br />Interval level - similar to the ordinal level, with the additional property that meaningful<br />amounts of differences between data values can be determined. There is no natural zero point. <br />EXAMPLE: Temperature on the Fahrenheit scale. <br />Ordinal level – involves data arranged in some order, but the differences between data values Cannot Be Determined Or Are meaningless. <br />EXAMPLE: During a taste test of 4 soft drinks, Coca Cola was ranked number 1, Sprite number 2, Seven-up number 3, and Pepsi number 4. <br />Ratio level- the interval level with an inherent zero starting point. <br />Differences and ratios are Meaningful For This Level<br />Ofmeasurement. <br />EXAMPLES: Monthly income of surgeons, or distance traveled by manufacturer’s representatives per month. <br />Prof. Ahmed Hassen<br />
