### Mean, Median, and Mode - Introductory Statistics

1. 1. Quantitative Specialists
2. 2. Mode – the most frequently occurring score Median – the middle score Mean – the arithmetic average Quantitative Specialists
3. 3. The most frequently occurring score Example: 1, 2, 2, 2, 3, 3, 4 Mode = 2 Quantitative Specialists
4. 4. Example: 1, 2, 2, 3, 3, 4 Bimodal (two modes) = 2, 3 Quantitative Specialists
5. 5. Example: 1, 2, 2, 3, 3, 4, 4 Multimodal (three or more modes) = 2, 3, 4 Quantitative Specialists
6. 6. The middle value Example: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 Median = 3 Quantitative Specialists
7. 7. Example: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 Two middle scores: 3, 4 To find the median, take the average of the two middle scores: (3+4)/2 = 3.5 Median = 3.5 Quantitative Specialists
8. 8. Odd N: When there are an odd number of values, the median is the middle score (1, 2, 3, 4, 5; N=5) median = 3 Even N: When there are an even number of values, the median is equal to the average of the two middle scores (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6; N=6) median = 3.5 Quantitative Specialists
9. 9. Prior to calculating the median, be sure that the numbers are ordered from smallest to largest (don’t pick the middle number of a set of numbers if they are not first ordered) Example: 2, 3, 1, 3, 1, 6 Reordered: 1, 1, 2, 3, 3, 6 Median = 2.5 Quantitative Specialists
10. 10. Mean = the arithmetic average Mean: Where µ = the population mean, ΣX is the sum of the variable X (add the values of X together), and N is the total number of values N X Quantitative Specialists
11. 11. Example X = 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 N = 5 Mean = 3 3 5 15 5 54321     N X  Quantitative Specialists
