The Empirical Rule



For Most Data Sets, Roughly 68% of the
Observations Fall Within 1 Standard Deviation
Around the Mean
Roughly 95% of the Observations Fall Within
2 Standard Deviations Around the Mean
Roughly 99.7% of the Observations Fall Within
3 Standard Deviations Around the Mean
© 2003 Prentice-Hall, Inc.
Chap 3-26
The Bienayme-Chebyshev Rule

The Percentage of Observations Contained
Within Distances of k Standard Deviations
Around the Mean Must Be at Least 1  1/ k 2 100%




Applies regardless of the shape of the data set
At least 75% of the observations must be contained
within distances of 2 standard deviations around the
mean
At least 88.89% of the observations must be
contained within distances of 3 standard deviations
around the mean
At least 93.75% of the observations must be
contained within distances of 4 standard deviations
around the mean

Pitfalls in Numerical Descriptive
Measures and Ethical Issues

Data Analysis is Objective


Data Interpretation is Subjective


Should report the summary measures that best
meet the assumptions about the data set
Should be done in a fair, neutral and clear manner
Ethical Issues

Should document both good and bad results

Presentation should be fair, objective and neutral

Should not use inappropriate summary measures
to distort the facts
