• Measures of dispersion or variation

• Range

• Variance

• Standard Deviation

Chebyshev’s Theorem

The proportion (or fraction) of any data set lying within K standard deviations of the mean is always at least 1-1/K2, where K is any positive number greater than 1.

For K=2 we obtain, at least 3/4 (75 %) of all scores will fall within 2 standard deviations of the mean, i.e. 75% of the data will fall between

Chebyshev’s Theorem

The proportion (or fraction) of any data set lying within K standard deviations of the mean is always at least 1-1/K2, where K is any positive number greater than 1.

For K=3 we obtain, at least 8/9 (89 %) of all scores will fall within 3 standard deviations of the mean, i.e. 89% of the data will fall between

The Empirical Rule states that for bell shaped (normal) data:

68% of all data points are within 1 standard deviations of the mean

95% of all data points are within 2 standard deviations of the mean

99.7% of all data points are within 3 standard deviations of the mean

The Empirical Rule states that for bell shaped (normal) data, approximately:

68% of all data points are within 1 standard deviations of the mean

95% of all data points are within 2 standard deviations of the mean

99.7% of all data points are within 3 standard deviations of the mean

To calculate the number of standard deviations a particular point is away from the standard deviation we use the following formula.

To calculate the number of standard deviations a particular point is away from the standard deviation we use the following formula.

The number we calculate is called the z-score of the measurement x.

Here are eight test scores from a previous Stats 201 class:

35, 59, 70, 73, 75, 81, 84, 86.

The mean and standard deviation are 70.4 and 16.7, respectively.

a) Find the z-score of the data point 35.

b) Find the z-score of the data point 73.

35, 59, 70, 73, 75, 81, 84, 86.

The mean and standard deviation are 70.4 and 16.7, respectively.

• Find the z-score of the data point 35.

z = -2.11

b) Find the z-score of the data point 73.

z = 0.16

The further away the z-score is from zero the more exceptional the original score.

Values of z less than -2 or greater than +2 can be considered exceptional or unusual (“a suspected outlier”).

Values of z less than -3 or greater than +3 are often exceptional or unusual (“a highly suspected outlier”).

Another method for detecting outliers involves percentiles.

Another method for detecting outliers involves percentiles.

The pth percentile ranking is a number so that p% of the measurements fall below the pth percentile and 100 – p% fall above it.

Example

If your score on a class quiz of 200 students places you in the 80th percentile, then only 40 students received a higher mark then you

Memorize:

The 25th percentile is called the lower quartile (QL)

The 75th percentile is called the upper quartile (QU)

Memorize:

The 25th percentile is called the lower quartile (QL)

The 75th percentile is called the upper quartile (QU)

The 50th percentile is called the

Memorize:

The 25th percentile is called the lower quartile (QL)

The 75th percentile is called the upper quartile (QU)

The 50th percentile is called the median (M)

Quick way to find quartiles

Arrange the data in increasing order

The middle number (or average of the two middle numbers) is the 50th percentile.

Find the middle number in the set of numbers greater than the median. This is the upper quartile.

Similarly, find the lower quartile

The interquartile range (IQR) is defined to be:

IQR = QU -QL

Here are the number of pages faxed by each fax sent from our Math and Stats department since April 24th, in the order that they occurred.

5, 1, 2, 6, 10, 3, 6, 2, 2, 2, 2, 2, 2, 4, 5, 1, 13, 2, 5, 5, 1, 3, 6, 37, 2, 8, 2, 25

Find QU , QL , M and IQR.

1) Rank the n points of data from lowest to highest

5, 1, 2, 6, 10, 3, 6, 2, 2, 2, 2, 2, 2, 4, 5, 1, 13, 2, 5, 5, 1, 3, 6, 37, 2, 8, 2, 25

To compute QU and QL , M.

Find the Median, divide the data into two equal parts and then the Medians of these.

1, 1, 1, 2, 2, 2, 2, 2, 2, 2, 2, 2, 2, 3, 3, 4, 5, 5, 5, 5, 6, 6, 6, 8, 10, 13, 25, 37

N = 28

Therefore, median is half way between the 14th and 15th number.

Median = 50th percentile = 3

M = 3

QU = 6

QL = 2

IQR=6-2=4.

Sometimes the IQR, is a better measure of variance then the standard deviation since it only depends on the center 50% of the data. That is, it is not effected at all by outliers.

Sometimes the IQR, is a better measure of variance then the standard deviation since it only depends on the center 50% of the data. That is, it is not effected at all by outliers.

To use the IQR as a measure of variance we need to find the Five Number Summary of the data and then construct a Box Plot.

The Five Number Summary of a data set consists of five numbers,

• MIN, QL , M, QU, Max

Suspected Outliers lie

• Above 1.5 IQRs but below 3 IQRs from the Upper Quartile
