(Numerical Data is information collected in number form.) </li></ul><ul><li>Mode for most common number of siblings is1sibling. So, this tells us that most students were from families with 2 children. (40%) </li></ul><ul><li>Median (middle of the data) 2 siblings: This would mean that each family would have a total of 3 children. This Average is not the most common but the middle of the data.
