study guide

- Objectives of research in business
- Characteristics of a distribution
- Central Tendency
- Dispersion
- Shape

- What are the three primary types of “measures of central
- tendency”?
- Mean
- Median
- Mode

- Measures of variability
- Range, Standard deviation and Variance
- Memorizing the four definitional formulae

Schedule of readings

The normal curve

Challenge yourself as we work through characteristics of distributions to try to categorize each concept as a measure of

1) central tendency

2) dispersion or 3) shape

Variance, Range

Normal distribution

In all distributions:

mode = tallest point

median = middle score

mean = balance point

In a normal distribution:

mode = mean = median

Positively skewed distribution

In all distributions:

mode = tallest point

median = middle score

mean = balance point

In a positively skewed distribution:

mode < median < mean

Note: mean is most affected by outliers or skewed distributions

Negatively skewed distribution

In all distributions:

mode = tallest point

median = middle score

mean = balance point

In a negatively skewed distribution:

mean < median < mode

Note: mean is most affected by outliers or skewed distributions

Mode: The value of the most frequent observation

Bimodal distribution: Distribution with two most

frequent observations (2 peaks)

Example: Ian coaches two boys baseball teams. One team is made up of 10-year-olds and the other is made up of 16-year-olds. When he measured the height of all of his players he found a bimodal distribution

Some distributions are more variable than others

A

Range: The difference between

the largest and smallest

observations

B

Range for distribution A?

Range for distribution B?

Range for distribution C?

C

Fun fact:

Mean is 72

Wildcats Baseball team:

Tallest player = 76” (same as 6’4”)

Shortest player = 68” (same as 5’8”)

Range:

The difference

between the largest

and smallest scores

76” – 68” = 8”

Range is 8” (76” – 68”)

xmax - xmin = Range

Please note:

No reference is made to numbers between the min and max

Fun fact:

Mean is 78

Wildcats Basketball team:

Tallest player = 83” (same as 6’11”)

Shortest player = 70” (same as 5’10”)

Range is 13” (83” – 70”)

Range:

The difference

between the largest

and smallest scores

83” – 70” = 13”

xmax - xmin = Range

Square the deviations!!

(and later take square root)

How do we get rid of the negatives??!?

Big problem!!

Σ(x - µ) = 0

Standard deviation: The average amount by which observations

deviate on either side of their mean

Note this is for population standard deviation

Fun Fact:

Standard deviation squared = variance

Standard deviation: The average amount by which observations

deviate on either side of their mean

Note this is for sample

standard deviation

Fun Fact:

Standard deviation squared = variance

Standard deviation: The average amount by which observations

deviate on either side of their mean

These would be helpful to know by heart – please memorize

these formula

Thank you!

See you next time!!
