- 1. STATISTICAL MEASURESMeasures of Center and Variation
- 2. VOCABULARYï‚¢ Data with one variable is called univariate.ï‚¢ Measures of central tendency are numbers that describe the middle of the data.ï‚¢ Mean-average ï‚— Add up the numbers and divide by how many there areï‚¢ Median-middle number ï‚— Put the numbers in numerical order and find the one in the middle, if there is an even number average the two middle numbersï‚¢ Mode-number that occurs most frequently
- 3. FINDING MEASURES OF CENTER10, 14, 15, 16, 20, 10, 11, 15, 19, 20, 102. Find the mean 1. Add up the numbers 10+14+15+16+20+10+11+15+19+20+10=160 2. Divide by the number of numbers 160/11=14.5453. Find the median 1. Put numbers in order 10, 10, 10, 11, 14, 15, 15, 16, 19, 20, 20 2. Find the middle number. 154. Find the mode 1. Which number occurs the most? 10
- 4. WHICH MEASURES OF CENTER ISBEST?There are times when one measure of central tendency will better describe the data.ï‚¢ Mean- when the data is spread out and you want an average of the valuesï‚¢ Median- when the data contains outliers ï‚— Outliers are values that dont fit the rest of the dataï‚¢ Mode- when the data is tightly clustered around one or two values
- 5. EXAMPLEï‚¢ A new internet company has 3 employees who are each paid $300,000, ten who are paid $100,000 and sixty who are paid $50,000. Which measure of central tendency best represents the pay at this company? ï‚— Median-because there are only a few employees who make a large amount of money these are outliers ï‚— Mode-because the vast majority of the employees make the same amount of money
- 6. MEASURES OF VARIATION ORDISPERSIONï‚¢ A numerical value associated with how spread out the data isï‚¢ Range- largest value â€“ smallest value ï‚— This is ONE numberï‚¢ Variance (ï„†2)/Standard Deviation (ï„†)- measures how much the data values differ from the mean ( x1 âˆ’ x ) 2 + ( x2 âˆ’ x ) 2 + ... + ( xn âˆ’ x ) 2 Ïƒ= n
- 7. FINDING VARIANCE ANDSTANDARD DEVIATIONï‚¢ To find variance ï„†2: 1. Find the mean 2. Find the difference between each data value and the mean. 3. Square each difference 4. Add them up 5. Divide by the number of data valuesï‚¢ Find Standard deviation ï„†: 1. Square root the variance
- 8. FINDING MEASURES OF VARIATION3, 5, 7, 9, 11ï‚¢ Find the range ï‚— Largest-smallest ï‚¢ 11-3=8ï‚¢ Find the standard deviation ï‚— Find variance V Mean = 3+5+7+9+11 = 35/5 = 7 1 (3-7)2 + (5-7)2 + (7-7)2 +(9-7)2 + (11-7)2 = 1 (-4)2 + (-2)2 + (0)2 + (2)2 + (4)2 = 1 16+4+0+4+16=20+0+20=40 + 40/5=8= ï„†2 -variance + âˆš8=2.83= ï„† -standard deviation
