Stem-and-Leaf Display

- A stem-and-leaf display is an exploratory data
analysis method that shows both the rank order

- and shape of the distribution of the data.

- It is similar to a histogram, but it has the
- advantage of showing the actual data values.

Steps to Construct a Stem-and-Leaf Display

- Arrange the first digits of each data to the
- left of a vertical line.

- To the right of the vertical line, record the last
- digit for each item in rank order.

- Each line in the display is referred to as a stem.

- Each digit on a stem is a leaf.

Stretched Stem-and-Leaf Display

- If we believe the display has condensed the data too
much, we can stretch thedisplay by using two stems

for each leading digit(s).

- Whenever stretched, the first value of a stem
corresponds to leaf values of 0 - 4, and the second

- value of a stem corresponds to leaf values of 5 - 9.

Stem-and-Leaf Display—Some notes

- Leaf Units

- A single digit is used to define each leaf.

- In the preceding example, the leaf unit was 1.

- Leaf units may be 100, 10, 1, 0.1, and so on.

- Where the leaf unit is not shown, it is assumed
- to equal 1.

Example: Leaf Unit = 0.1

If we have data with values such as

8.6 11.7 9.4 9.1 10.2 11.0 8.8

a stem-and-leaf display of these data will be

Leaf Unit = 0.1

If we have data with values such as

a stem-and-leaf display of these data will be

Leaf Unit = 10

Crosstabulations and Scatter Diagrams

Crosstabulations and Scatter Diagrams

- Thus far we have focused on methods that are used
- to summarize the data on one variable at a time.

- Cross tabulationand a scatter diagram are methods for
- summarizing the data on two (or more) variables
- simultaneously.

- Help us understand the relationship between two variables.

- A crosstabulation is a tabular summary of data for
two variables.

- Crosstabulation can be used when:
- one variable is qualitative and the other is
- quantitative,
- both variables are qualitative, or
- both variables are quantitative.

- The left and top margin labels define the classes for
- the two variables.

- Example:
The number of Homes sold by style and price for the past two years is shown below.

Cross-tabulation

- Insights Gained from Preceding Cross-tabulation

- The greatest number of homes in the sample (19)
- are a split-level style and priced at less than or
- equal to $99,000.

- Only three homes in the sample are an A-Frame
- style and priced at more than $99,000.

Cross-tabulation: Row or Column Percentages

- Converting the entries in the table into row percentages or column percentages can provide additional insight about the relationship between the two variables.

- Often Times data in two or more cross-tabulations are
aggregated to produce a summary cross-tabulation.

- We must be careful in drawing conclusions about the
- relationship between the two variables in the
- aggregated cross-tabulation.

- Simpson’ Paradox: In some cases the conclusions
based upon an aggregated cross-tabulation can be

completely different from the un-aggregated

data.

Scatter Diagram and Trend line

- A scatter diagram is a graphical presentation of the
- relationship between two quantitative variables.

- One variable is shown on the horizontal axis and the
- other variable is shown on the vertical axis.

- The general pattern of the plotted points suggests the
- overall relationship between the variables.

- A trend line is an approximation of the relationship.

Example: Panthers Football Team

- The Panthers football team is interested
in investigating the relationship, if any,

between interceptions made and points scored.

x = Number of

Interceptions

y = Number of

Points Scored

Example: Panthers Football Team

- Insights Gained from the Preceding Scatter Diagram

- The scatter diagram indicates a positive relationship
- between the number of interceptions and the
- number of points scored.

- Higher points scored are associated with a higher
- number of interceptions.

- The relationship is not perfect; all plotted points in
- the scatter diagram are not on a straight line.
