Statistics The collection, evaluation, and interpretation of data Statistics Statistics Descriptive Statistics Inferential Statistics Describe collected data Generalize and evaluate a population based on sample data Data Categorical or Qualitative Data Values that possess names or labels Color of M&M’s, breed of dog, etc. Numerical or Quantitative Data Values that represent a measurable quantity Population, number of M&M’s, number of defective parts, etc. Data Collection Sampling • Random • Systematic • Stratified • Cluster • Convenience Graphic Data Representation Histogram Frequency distribution graph Frequency Polygons Frequency distribution graph Bar Chart Categorical data graph Pie Chart Categorical data graph % Measures of Central Tendency Mean x • Arithmetic average • Sum of all data values divided by the number of data values within the array Sx x= n • Most frequently used measure of central tendency • Strongly influenced by outliers—very large or very small values Measures of Central Tendency Determine the mean value of 48, 63, 62, 49, 58, 2, 63, 5, 60, 59, 55 Sx x= n (48+63+62+49+58+2+63+5+60+59+55) x= 11 524 x= 11 x = 47.64 Measures of Central Tendency Median • Data value that divides a data array into two equal groups • Data values must be ordered from lowest to highest • Useful in situations with skewed data and outliers (e.g., wealth management) Measures of Central Tendency Determine the median value of 48, 63, 62, 49, 58, 2, 63, 5, 60, 59, 55 Organize the data array from lowest to highest value. 2, 5, 48, 49, 55, 58, 59, 60, 62, 63, 63 Select the data value that splits the data set evenly. Median = 58 What if the data array had an even number of values? 5, 48, 49, 55, 58, 59, 60, 62, 63, 63 Measures of Central Tendency Mode • Most frequently occurring response within a data array • Usually the highest point of curve • May not be typical • May not exist at all • Modal, bimodal, and multimodal Measures of Central Tendency Determine the mode of 48, 63, 62, 49, 58, 2, 63, 5, 60, 59, 55 Mode = 63 Determine the mode of 48, 63, 62, 59, 58, 2, 63, 5, 60, 59, 55 Mode = 63 & 59 Bimodal Determine the mode of 48, 63, 62, 59, 48, 2, 63, 5, 60, 59, 55 Mode = 63, 59, & 48 Multimodal Data Variation Measure of data scatter Range Difference between the lowest and highest data value Standard Deviation Square root of the variance Range Calculate by subtracting the lowest value from the highest value. R=h-l Calculate the range for the data array. 2, 5, 48, 49, 55, 58, 59, 60, 62, 63, 63 R=h-l R = 63 - 2 R = 61 Standard Deviation – Sample vs. Population Sample Standard Deviation s= ( ) S x-x (n-1) Population Standard Deviation. 2 σ= xi − μ N 2 In practice, only the sample standard deviation can be measured and therefore is more useful for applications. Population Standard Deviation A population standard deviation represents a parameter, not a statistic. The standard deviation of a population gives researchers an amount of dispersion of data for an entire population of survey respondents. Sample Standard Deviation A standard deviation of a sample estimates the standard deviation of a population based on a random sample. The sample standard deviation, unlike the population standard deviation, is a statistic that measures the dispersion of the data around the sample mean. Sample Standard Deviation s for a sample, not population 1. Calculate the mean x s= ( ) S x-x (n-1) 2. Subtract the mean from each value and then square it. 3. Sum all squared differences. 4. Divide the summation by the number of values in the array minus 1. 5. Calculate the square root of the product. 2 Sample Standard Deviation S (x-x ) Calculate the sample standard s= (n-1) deviation for the data array. 2, 5, 48, 49, 55, 58, 59, 60, 62, 63, 63 Sx 1. x = n 2 2.
