frequency distribution
Frequency Distribution
  • A frequency distribution is the organization of raw data in table form, using classes and frequencies.
  • Each raw data value is placed into a quantitative or qualitative category called a class.
  • The frequency of a class then is the number of data values contained in a specific class.
categorical frequency distributions
Categorical Frequency Distributions
  • The categorical frequency distribution is used for data that can be placed in specific categories (nominal and ordinal)
grouped frequency distributions
Grouped frequency Distributions
  • When the range of the data is large, the data must be grouped into classes that are more than one unit in width, in what is called a grouped frequency distribution.
  • Class limits – upper class limit, lower class limit
  • Class width – range
  • Class boundaries are used to separate the classes so that there are no gaps in the frequency distribution
about classes
About classes…..
  • There should be between 5 and 20 classes
  • It is preferable, but not necessary that the class width be an odd number. This ensures that the midpoint of each class (the class midpoint) has the same place value as the data
  • The classes must be mutually exclusive
  • The classes must be continuous
  • The classes must be exhaustive
  • The classes must be equal in width

create a grouped frequency distribution for the data using 7 classes
Create a grouped frequency distribution for the data using 7 classes:

These data represent the record high temperatures in degrees Fahrenheit for each of the fifty states

ungrouped frequency distribution
Ungrouped Frequency Distribution
  • Used when the range of the data values is relatively small. Uses single data values for each class:
  • The data shown represents the number of miles per gallon that 30 selected SUVs obtained in city driving
cumulative frequency
Cumulative Frequency
  • A cumulative frequency distribution is a distribution that shows the number of data values less than or equal to a specific value (usually an upper boundary)
