A Brief Introduction to Statistics

What is Statistics
What is Statistics?
1. The science that deals with the collection,
organization, presentation, analysis, and
interpretation of numerical data to obtain
useful and meaningful information
2. A collection of quantitative data pertaining
to a subject or group. Examples are blood
pressure statistics etc.
A Brief Introduction to Statistics

Branches of Statistics
Two branches of statistics:
1. Descriptive Statistics:
Describes the characteristics of a product or

process using information collected on it.
2. Inferential Statistics (Inductive):
Draws conclusions on unknown process

parameters based on information contained in
a sample.
Uses probability
A Brief Introduction to Statistics

Data
DATA is any quantitative or qualitative
information.
Types of Data:
1.

Quantitative – numerical information obtained
from counting or measuring (e.g. age, qtr.
exam scores, height)

2.

Qualitative – descriptive attributes that cannot
be subjected to mathematical operations (e.g.
gender, religion, citizenship)
Measures of Central Tendency and Dispersion

The Measures of Central
Tendency and Dispersion
Statistics use numerical values used to
summarize and compare sets of data.
 Measure of Central Tendency:
number used to represent the center or
middle set of a set of data
 Measure of Dispersion (or
Variability): refers to the spread of
values about the mean.


(i.e., how spread out the values are with respect to the mean)

Measures of Central
Tendency

The Measure of Central Tendency:
1. Mean - the (arithmetic) average (or
the sum of the quantities divided by the number of
quantities)

Median – the middle value of a set
of ordered data
3. Mode – number in a data set that
occurs most frequently
2.
Measures of Central Tendency and Dispersion

The Mean
It‘s known as the typical ―average.‖
 It is the most common measure of central
tendency.
 Symbolized as:
◦ x for the mean of a sample
◦ μ (Greek letter mu) for the mean of a
population
• It‘s equal to the sum of the quantities in the
data set divided by the number of quantities

The Weighted Mean
It is a mean where some values contribute
more than others.
 Each quantity is assigned a corresponding
WEIGHT


(e.g. frequency or number, units, per cent)


The weighted mean is equal to the sum of the
products of the quantities (x) and their
corresponding weights (w), divided by the sum
of the weights.

Measures of Central Tendency and Dispersion

The Median
Used to find the middle value (center) of a
distribution.
 Used when one must determine whether
the data values fall into either the upper
50% or lower 50% of a distribution.
 Used when one needs to report the
typical value of a data set, ignoring the
outliers (few extreme values in a data
set).


◦ Example: median salary, median home prices in a market
Measures of Central Tendency and Dispersion

The Median
How to find the median:



Order the data in increasing order.
If the number of data is ODD, the
median is the middle number.

If n is odd, the middle number in n observations is the
(n + 1)/2 th observation



If the number of data is EVEN, the
median is the mean of the two middle
numbers.

If n is even the middle number in n observations is the
average of the (n/2)th and the (n/2+1)th observation
Measures of Central Tendency and Dispersion

The Median
Example 4
Find the median of each set of data.
a. 1, 2, 2, 3, 3, 4, 4, 5, 5
b. 1, 2, 2, 3, 3, 4, 4, 4, 5, 5

Solution:
Arrange from lowest to highest:
2, 3, 5, 5, 6, 7, 7, 7, 8, 8, 9, 9, 10, 10
The median is 7.
Measures of Central Tendency and Dispersion

The Mode
It is the number that appears most
frequently in a set of data.
 It is used when the most typical
(common) value is desired.
 It is not always unique. A distribution
can have no mode, one mode, or more
than one mode. When there are two or
more modes, we say the distribution is
multimodal.


(for two modes, we say that the distribution is
bimodal)

The Measures of
Dispersion
Measures of Central Tendency and Dispersion

Measures of Dispersion
The Measure of Dispersion or Variability
1. Range – the difference of the largest
and smallest value
2. Mean Absolute Deviation – the
average of the positive differences
from the mean
3. Standard deviation – involves the
average of the squared differences
from the mean.
(related: variance)
Measures of Central Tendency and Dispersion

Range
Simply the difference between the largest and
smallest values in a set of data
 Useful for analysis of fluctuations and for
ordinal data
 Is considered primitive as it considers only
the extreme values which may not be useful
indicators of the bulk of the population.
 The formula is:


Range = largest observation - smallest observation
Measures of Central Tendency and Dispersion

Range
Example 10
Find the range of the following data sets:
a.

3, 5, 10, 4, 3

Measures of Central Tendency and Dispersion

Mean Deviation
It measures the ‗average‘ distance of each
observation away from the mean of the data
 Gives an equal weight to each observation
 Generally more sensitive than the range, since
a change in any value will affect it
 The formula is

previous example mean?
It means that the quantities have an average
difference of 3.75 from the mean (plus or
minus).
Measures of Central Tendency and Dispersion

Standard Deviation
Measures the variation of observations
from the mean
 The most common measure of
dispersion
 Takes into account every observation
 Measures the ‗average deviation‘ of
observations from the mean
 Works with squares of residuals, not
absolute values—easier to use in further

  • 1.
  • 2.
  • 3.
  • 4. A Brief Introduction to Statistics What is Statistics What is Statistics? 1. The science that deals with the collection, organization, presentation, analysis, and interpretation of numerical data to obtain useful and meaningful information 2. A collection of quantitative data pertaining to a subject or group. Examples are blood pressure statistics etc.
  • 5. A Brief Introduction to Statistics Branches of Statistics Two branches of statistics: 1. Descriptive Statistics: Describes the characteristics of a product or process using information collected on it. 2. Inferential Statistics (Inductive): Draws conclusions on unknown process parameters based on information contained in a sample. Uses probability
  • 6. A Brief Introduction to Statistics Data DATA is any quantitative or qualitative information. Types of Data: 1. Quantitative – numerical information obtained from counting or measuring (e.g. age, qtr. exam scores, height) 2. Qualitative – descriptive attributes that cannot be subjected to mathematical operations (e.g. gender, religion, citizenship)
  • 7. Measures of Central Tendency and Dispersion The Measures of Central Tendency and Dispersion Statistics use numerical values used to summarize and compare sets of data.  Measure of Central Tendency: number used to represent the center or middle set of a set of data  Measure of Dispersion (or Variability): refers to the spread of values about the mean.  (i.e., how spread out the values are with respect to the mean)
  • 9. Measures of Central Tendency and Dispersion Measures of Central Tendency The Measure of Central Tendency: 1. Mean - the (arithmetic) average (or the sum of the quantities divided by the number of quantities) Median – the middle value of a set of ordered data 3. Mode – number in a data set that occurs most frequently 2.
  • 10. Measures of Central Tendency and Dispersion The Mean It‘s known as the typical ―average.‖  It is the most common measure of central tendency.  Symbolized as: ◦ x for the mean of a sample ◦ μ (Greek letter mu) for the mean of a population • It‘s equal to the sum of the quantities in the data set divided by the number of quantities  x x n
  • 11. Measures of Central Tendency and Dispersion The Mean Example 1 Find the mean of the numbers in the following data sets: a. b. 3, 5, 10, 4, 3 x 3 5 10 4 3 5 85, 87, 89, 90, 91, 98 x 540 6 90 25 5 5
  • 12. Measures of Central Tendency and Dispersion The Mean Example 2 The table on the right shows the age of 13 applicants for a job in a factory in EPZA. What is the average age of the applicants? (Adapted from DOLE-BLES i-Learnstat module on Measures of Central Tendency) Solution: x 318 13 24.5
  • 13. Measures of Central Tendency and Dispersion The Weighted Mean It is a mean where some values contribute more than others.  Each quantity is assigned a corresponding WEIGHT  (e.g. frequency or number, units, per cent)  The weighted mean is equal to the sum of the products of the quantities (x) and their corresponding weights (w), divided by the sum of the weights. x wx w
  • 14. Measures of Central Tendency and Dispersion The Weighted Mean Example 3 SCORE NO. OF STUDENTS 5 8 4 6 3 3 2 2 1 1 The table shows the scores of 20 students in a 5-item Math IV seatwork. Find the average score of the class.

Measures of Central Tendency and Dispersion The Weighted Mean Example 3 SolutionSCORE x 78 20 3.9 PRODUCT 5 8 40 4 6 24 3 3 9 2 2 4 1 Multiply the scores by the number of students, then find the sum. Finally, divide by the total number of students The average score is NO. OF STUDENTS 1 1 sums 20 78
  • 16. Measures of Central Tendency and Dispersion The Median Used to find the middle value (center) of a distribution.  Used when one must determine whether the data values fall into either the upper 50% or lower 50% of a distribution.  Used when one needs to report the typical value of a data set, ignoring the outliers (few extreme values in a data set).  ◦ Example: median salary, median home prices in a market
  • 17. Measures of Central Tendency and Dispersion The Median How to find the median:   Order the data in increasing order. If the number of data is ODD, the median is the middle number. If n is odd, the middle number in n observations is the (n + 1)/2 th observation  If the number of data is EVEN, the median is the mean of the two middle numbers. If n is even the middle number in n observations is the average of the (n/2)th and the (n/2+1)th observation
  • 18. Measures of Central Tendency and Dispersion The Median Example 4 Find the median of each set of data. a. 1, 2, 2, 3, 3, 4, 4, 5, 5 b. 1, 2, 2, 3, 3, 4, 4, 4, 5, 5 Answers a. Me = 3 (the 5th number) b. The average of 5th and 6th numbers: 3 4 Me 2 3.5
  • 19. Measures of Central Tendency and Dispersion The Median Example 5 Find the median of the following: 3, 5, 6, 10, 9, 8, 7, 8, 9, 10, 7, 2, 5, 7 Solution: Arrange from lowest to highest: 2, 3, 5, 5, 6, 7, 7, 7, 8, 8, 9, 9, 10, 10 The median is 7.
  • 20. Measures of Central Tendency and Dispersion The Mode It is the number that appears most frequently in a set of data.  It is used when the most typical (common) value is desired.  It is not always unique. A distribution can have no mode, one mode, or more than one mode. When there are two or more modes, we say the distribution is multimodal.  (for two modes, we say that the distribution is bimodal)
  • 21. Measures of Central Tendency and Dispersion The Mode Example 6 The table shows the scores of 20 students in a 5-item AP quiz. SCORE NO. OF STUDENTS 5 6 4 7 3 4 What is the modal score? 2 2 Answer: 4 1 1

  • 27. Measures of Central Tendency and Dispersion Measures of Dispersion The Measure of Dispersion or Variability 1. Range – the difference of the largest and smallest value 2. Mean Absolute Deviation – the average of the positive differences from the mean 3. Standard deviation – involves the average of the squared differences from the mean. (related: variance)
  • 28. Measures of Central Tendency and Dispersion Range Simply the difference between the largest and smallest values in a set of data  Useful for analysis of fluctuations and for ordinal data  Is considered primitive as it considers only the extreme values which may not be useful indicators of the bulk of the population.  The formula is:  Range = largest observation - smallest observation
  • 29. Measures of Central Tendency and Dispersion Range Example 10 Find the range of the following data sets: a. 3, 5, 10, 4, 3 range 10 3 7 b. 85, 87, 89, 90, 91, 98 range 98 85 13 c. 3, 5, 6, 10, 9, 8, 7, 8, 9, 10, 7, 2, 5, 7 range 10 2 8
  • 30. Measures of Central Tendency and Dispersion Mean Deviation It measures the ‗average‘ distance of each observation away from the mean of the data  Gives an equal weight to each observation  Generally more sensitive than the range, since a change in any value will affect it  The formula is  MD x x n x where x is a quantity in the set, and n is the number of data. is the mean,
  • 31. Measures of Central Tendency and Dispersion Mean Deviation To find the mean deviation:MD 1. 2. x x n Compute the mean. Get all the POSITIVE difference of each number and the mean.

  • 36. Measures of Central Tendency and Dispersion Mean Deviation What does the answer in the previous example mean? It means that the quantities have an average difference of 3.75 from the mean (plus or minus).
  • 37. Measures of Central Tendency and Dispersion Standard Deviation Measures the variation of observations from the mean  The most common measure of dispersion  Takes into account every observation  Measures the ‗average deviation‘ of observations from the mean  Works with squares of residuals, not absolute values—easier to use in further 
  • 38. Measures of Central Tendency and Dispersion Standard Deviation  The formula for the standard deviation is 2 x x n where x is a quantity in the set, x is the mean, and n is the number of data.
  • 39. Measures of Central Tendency and Dispersion Variance  The variance is simply the square of the standard deviation, or 2 Variance : 2 x x n 2

Square each difference 4. Add all the results in step 3. 5. Divide by the number of data. 6. Get the square root. Note: If the VARIANCE is to be computed, skip the last step. 2
  • 41. Measures of Central Tendency and Dispersion Standard Deviation Population versus Sample Standard Deviation  The standard deviation used here is called the POPULATION standard deviation.  For very large populations, the SAMPLE standard deviation (s) is used. Its 2 formula is x x s n 1
  • 42. Measures of Central Tendency and Dispersion Standard Deviation Alternative Formula for the Standard Deviation formula for standard deviation  Another uses only the sum of the data as well the sum of the squares of the data. This is n x 2 x n 2
