### Variability

• 2. Variability • Provides a quantitative measure of the degree to which scores in a distribution are spread out or clustered together • Allows a determination of how well an individual score (or group of scores) represent the entire distribution • Describes our distribution • Usually accompanies a measure of central tendency • Typically in terms of distance from the mean or from other scores
• 4. Variability Size Matters • When variability is small (Experiment A), it is easy to see a difference between distributions • When variability is large (Experiment B), differences between distributions may be obscured Difference! ?
• 5. Which distribution has more variability? The red one? The green one? The blue one?
• 6. Measures of Variability • Variability can be measured with • Range • Standard deviation • Variance • Variability is determined by measuring distance • The distance between score X1 and the mean of the distribution • Remember central tendency • Mean, Median, Mode • There is no “right” or “wrong” measure of central tendency, but the shape of the distribution will affect how you interpret these statistics Related concepts
• 7. The Range • The difference between the largest X value and the smallest X value range = Xmax - Xmin If X = 2, 4, 6, 1, 8, 10 Then range = ? (remember the real limits!) range = 10.5 – 0.5 = 10 If we don’t account for real limits: range = 10 – 1 + 1 • When scores are whole numbers or discrete variables with numerical scores, the range tells us the number of measurement categories 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, and 10
• 8. Is the range a reliable measure of variability? Scores 40 23 19 23 22 21 18 19.5 20 23 21.5 18.5 17.5 16 0 5 10 15 20 25 30 35 40 45 0 1 2 3 Sample 1 (score x = 40 included) range = 40.5 – 15.5 = 25 or range = 40 – 16 + 1 = 25 Sample 2 (score x = 40 removed) range = 23.5 - 15.5 = 8 or range = 23 – 16 + 1 = 8 Scores (highlow) 40 23 23 23 22 21.5 21 20 19.5 19 18.5 18 17.5 16
• 9. The Standard Deviation (SD) Standard = average Deviation* = distance from the mean • Approximates the average distance of scores from the mean • Provides the most information • Takes into account all scores in the distribution • Most commonly used measure of variability *Deviation is calculated as: X - μ
• 10. SD: A Conceptual Walkthrough X X – μ (calc) X - μ 2 (2 – 6) -4 4 (4 – 6) -2 6 (6 – 6) 0 8 (8 – 6) 2 10 (10 – 6) 4 ΣX – μ = 0 We are interested in the relationship of each score to the mean. Thus, sign (+/-) is important. o A score of 4 is below the mean by 2 points (-2), and a score of 10 is above the mean by 4 points (+4). X = 2, 4, 6, 8, 10 N = 5 μ = 6 ΣX – μ = 0. Will this always be the case? Yes. If the mean is the balance point, the sum of scores above the mean will be exactly equal to the sum of scores below the mean.
• 11. SD: A Conceptual Walkthrough (cont’d) X X – μ (X – μ)2 2 -4 16 4 -2 4 6 0 0 8 2 4 10 4 16 Σ(X – μ)2 = 40 If we square each individual deviation score, we get rid of the sign (+/-) • We now have a value we can take the average of X = 2, 4, 6, 8, 10 N = 5 μ = 6 40 ÷ 5 = 8 variance Population variance: the mean of the squared deviation scores Remember that we are not interested in squared distance. • To convert back into our original measure of distance: Standard deviation: the square root of variance √8 = 2.83 SD
• 12. The Calculation of Variance and Standard Deviation Step 1 Step 2 Step 3 Step 4 Voila! Standard Deviation! Variance
• 13. SD: A Conceptual Walkthrough (cont’d) X X – μ (X – μ)2 2 -4 16 4 -2 4 6 0 0 8 2 4 10 4 16 Σ(X – μ)2 = 40 SD provides the measure of average distance of scores from the mean • Given this set of scores, does this seem reasonable? • What if I obtained a standard deviation value of 20? X = 2, 4, 6, 8, 10 N = 5 μ = 6 SD = 2.83
• 14. Formulas for Calculating Variance and SD • First a note on notation: • You will use your calculator to check your work • DO NOT freak out • All formulas will be given to you for exams • This is a learning tool – so you “get” the concepts of variance and SD Sample SD: s Variance: s² Population SD: σ Variance: σ²
• 15. Sum of Squares (SS) • SS = the sum of squared deviation scores • The definitional formula expresses SS in the conceptual way explained previously: • • The computational formula provides the same answer, but is easier to use when the mean is not a whole number   2 )( XSS N X XSS 2 2 )( 
• 16. A Demonstration of Both SS Methods X X2 X – μ (X - μ)2 2 4 (2 – 6) = -4 16 4 16 (4 – 6) = -2 4 6 36 (6 – 6) = 0 0 8 64 (8 – 6) = 2 4 10 100 (10 – 6) = 4 16 ΣX = 30 ΣX2 = 220 Σ(X – μ) = 0 Σ(X – μ)2 = 40 Definitional Formula 40180220 5 )30( 220 )( 22 2   N X XSS Computational Formula
• 17. Variance and Standard Deviation Sample • Note that these explicitly show the definitional SS formula. You can also solve using the computational SS formula. Population 2 2 2 2 11 )( . 11 )( s n SS n MX s DeviationStd n SS n MX s Variance              Variance s 2 = (X -m)2 å N = SS N Std.Deviation s = (X -m)2 å N = SS N = s 2
• 18. Why are the formulas different? Sample • We want our sample statistic to be as representative of the population parameter as possible. • However, our samples will often be less variable than the population • We adjust for the biased estimate of sample variability by dividing by n – 1 (degrees of freedom) instead of N Population Std.Deviation s = SS n -1 Std.Deviation s = SS N Variance s2 = SS n -1 Variance s 2 = SS N
• 19. Degrees of Freedom (df) Determine the number of scores in the sample that are independent and free to vary • If n = 3 and M = 5 • Then ΣX must equal what? • M = ΣX ÷ n  5 = ΣX ÷ 3 • The first two scores have no restrictions • They are independent values and could be any value • The third score is restricted • Can only be one value, based on the sum of the first two scores (2 + 9 = 11) • X3 MUST be 4 X 2 9 ? n = 3 M = 5 ΣX = 15  3 × 5 = 15  This score has no “freedom” ΣX = ?
• 21. Why is Knowing Variability Important? Begin to think about how you might compare two distributions, and how these factors might play a role in your conclusions
• 22. Comprehension Check If you have two samples: • Sample 1: n = 25, M = 80 • Sample 2: n = 25, M = 80 Does a score of 85 mean the same thing? • Consider if for sample 1: s = 1 and for sample 2: s = 10 • Which situation would a score of 85 be a “better” score? • A score of 85 in sample one means that this score is 5 standard deviations above the mean • A score in sample two means that this score is ½ a standard deviation above the mean
• 23. Comprehension Check Sample 1 n = 25, M = 80 s = 1 Sample 2 n = 25, M = 80 s = 10 80 In which situation would a score of 85 be a “better- than-average” score? Sample 178 79 81 82 8377 60 70 90 100 11050 Sample 2

• 29. Properties of the Standard Deviation • Multiplying every score by a constant results in the multiplication by the same constant of the M, and multiplication by the same constant of the SD (s or σ) 7 3.74 For X n = 6 M = 3.5 SD = 1.87 For X × 2 n = 6 M = 7 SD = 3.74 X × 2 2 4 6 8 10 12 X 1 2 3 4 5 6
