Chapter 3: Describing Data: Numerical Measures

1. Measure of location.

2. Measure of dispersion.

Chapter 3: Describing Data: Numerical Measures

- Population mean = (sum of all the values in the population)/(number of values in the population)
- Population mean
Equation 3-1 Page 57

Parameter: a characteristic of a population

Chapter 3: Describing Data: Numerical Measures

There are 12 automobile manufacturing

companies in the United States. Listed

below is the number of patents granted

by the United States government to

each company in a recent year.

Is this a sample or a population?

Chapter 3: Describing Data: Numerical Measures

- Sample mean = (sum of all the values in the sample)/(number of values in the sample)
- Sample mean
Equation 3-2 Page 58

Statistic: a characteristic of a sample

Chapter 3: Describing Data: Numerical Measures

SunCom is studying the number of

minutes used by clients in a particular

cell phone rate plan. A random sample

of 12 clients showed the following

number of minutes used last month.

90, 77, 94, 89, 119, 112, 91, 110, 92, 100,

113, 83,

Mean?

Chapter 3: Describing Data: Numerical Measures

- Median:
the midpoint of the values after they have been ordered from the smallest to the largest.

Chapter 3: Describing Data: Numerical Measures

Prices ordered from low to high:

60000

65000

70000 ……..median

80000

275000

Chapter 3: Describing Data: Numerical Measures

- Mode
the value of the observation that appears most frequently.

Example Page 64

Chapter 3: Describing Data: Numerical Measures

- A symmetric distribution
Mound-shaped distribution. Mean, median, and mode are equal.

Chart 3-2 Page 67

Chapter 3: Describing Data: Numerical Measures

- A skewed distribution
is not symmetrical

A positively skewed distribution,

- the arithmetic mean is the largest of the three

measures (mean, median, mode).

- the median is generally the next largest

measure.

- the mode is the smallest.

- mode > median > mean.

Chart 3-3 Page 68

Chapter 3: Describing Data: Numerical Measures

A negatively skewed distribution:

- the mean is the lowest of the three

measures.

- the median is greater than the

mean.

- the mode is the largest of the three

measures.

- mode > median > mean.

Chart 3-4 Page 68

Chapter 3: Describing Data: Numerical Measures

- Why study dispersion:
- the spread of the data.

- to know variation.

- A small value for a measure

dispersion indicates that the data

are clustered closely around the

arithmetic mean.

- The mean considered as representative of the data.

Chapter 3: Describing Data: Numerical Measures

- To know about the spread data
- A small value a measure of dispersion indicates that the data are clustered closely.
- A large measure of dispersion indicates that the mean is not reliable.

Chapter 3: Describing Data: Numerical Measures

- Range.
- Mean deviation.
- Variance and standard deviation.

Chapter 3: Describing Data: Numerical Measures

Range:

- The simplest.

- Equation 3-6 (page 73)

Range = (largest value) – (smallest value)

Chapter 3: Describing Data: Numerical Measures

Mean deviation (MD):

- The arithmetic mean of the absolute values of the deviations from the arithmetic mean.
- Equation 3-7 Page 73

Example Page 74

Chapter 3: Describing Data: Numerical Measures

The number of cappuccinos sold at the

Starbuck location in the Orange County

Airport between 4 and 7 pm for sample of 5

days last year were 20, 40, 50, 60 and 80. In

the LAX airport in Los Angeles, the number of

cappuccinos sold at a Starbuck location

between 4 and 7 pm for a sample of 5 days

last year were 20, 49, 50, 51, and 80.

Determine the mean, median, range, and

mean deviation for each location. Compare the

difference.

Chapter 3: Describing Data: Numerical Measures

For the Orange County:

Mean: 50 cappuccinos per day

Median: 50 cappuccinos per day

Range: 60 cappuccinos per day

Chapter 3: Describing Data: Numerical Measures

Chapter 3: Describing Data: Numerical Measures

MD = (80)/(5) = 16

The mean deviation is 16 cappuccinos per

day, and shows that the number of

cappuccinos sold deviates, on average, by

16 from the mean of 50 cappuccinos per

day.

Chapter 3: Describing Data: Numerical Measures

Variance and standard deviation:

- Based on the deviation from the mean
- Variance: the arithmetic mean of the squared deviations from the mean
- Standard deviation: the square root of the variance
Population variance

Equation 3-8 Page 76

Example Page 77

Population standard deviation

Equation 3-9 Page 78

The number of traffic citations issued

during the last five months in Beaufort

County, South Carolina, is 38, 26, 13, 41,

and 22. What is the population variance?
