Constructing a Frequency Distribution
1. Decide on the number of classes.
 Usually between 5 and 20; otherwise, it may be
difficult to detect any patterns.
2. Find the class width.
 Determine the range of the data.
 Divide the range by the number of classes.
 Round up to the next convenient number.
6
Constructing a Frequency Distribution
3. Find the class limits.
 You can use the minimum data entry as the lower
limit of the first class.
 Find the remaining lower limits (add the class
width to the lower limit of the preceding class).
 Find the upper limit of the first class. Remember
that classes cannot overlap.
 Find the remaining upper class limits.
7
Constructing a Frequency Distribution
4. Make a tally mark for each data entry in the row of
the appropriate class.
5. Count the tally marks to find the total frequency f
for each class.

Example: Constructing a Frequency
Distribution
The following sample data set lists the number of
minutes 50 Internet subscribers spent on the Internet
during their most recent session. Construct a frequency
distribution that has seven classes.

boundaries.
 The vertical scale measures cumulative
frequencies.
3. Plot points that represent the upper class boundaries
and their corresponding cumulative frequencies.
31
Constructing an Ogive
4. Connect the points in order from left to right.
5. The graph should start at the lower boundary of the
first class (cumulative frequency is zero) and should
end at the upper boundary of the last class
(cumulative frequency is equal to the sample size).

• The data entries go from a low of 78 to a high of 159.
• Use the rightmost digit as the leaf.
 For instance,
78 = 7 | 8
and 159 = 15 | 9
• List the stems, 7 to 15, to the left of a vertical line.
• For each data entry, list a leaf to the right of its stem.
42
Solution: Constructing a Stem-and-Leaf
Plot
Include a key to identify
the values of the data.
From the display, you can conclude that more than 50% of the
cellular phone users sent between 110 and 130 text messages.

129 112 126 148 147
• So that each data entry is included in the dot plot, the
horizontal axis should include numbers between 70 and
160.
• To represent a data entry, plot a point above the entry's
position on the axis.
• If an entry is repeated, plot another point above the
previous point.

From the dot plot, you can see that most values cluster
between 105 and 148 and the value that occurs the
most is 126. You can also see that 78 is an unusual data
value.

Example: Constructing a Pareto Chart
In a recent year, the retail industry lost $41.0 million in
inventory shrinkage. Inventory shrinkage is the loss of
inventory through breakage, pilferage, shoplifting, and
so on. The causes of the inventory shrinkage are
administrative error ($7.8 million), employee theft
($15.6 million), shoplifting ($14.7 million), and vendor
fraud ($2.9 million). Use a Pareto chart to organize this
data. (Source: National Retail Federation and Center for
Retailing Education, University of Florida)

Graphing Paired Data Sets
Paired Data Sets
• Each entry in one data set corresponds to one entry in
a second data set.
• Graph using a scatter plot.
 The ordered pairs are graphed as y
points in a coordinate plane.
 Used to show the relationship
between two quantitative variables.

Example: Interpreting a Scatter Plot
The British statistician Ronald Fisher introduced a
famous data set called Fisher's Iris data set. This data set
describes various physical characteristics, such as petal
length and petal width (in millimeters), for three species
of iris. The petal lengths form the first data set and the
petal widths form the second data set. (Source: Fisher, R.
A., 1936)
58
Example: Interpreting a Scatter Plot
As the petal length increases, what tends to happen to
the petal width?
Each point in the
scatter plot
represents the
petal length and
petal width of one
flower.
59
Solution: Interpreting a Scatter Plot
Interpretation
From the scatter plot, you can see that as the petal
length increases, the petal width also tends to
increase.

64
Solution: Constructing a Time Series
Chart
• Let the horizontal axis represent
the years.
• Let the vertical axis represent the
number of subscribers (in
millions).
• Plot the paired data and connect
them with line segments.
65
Solution: Constructing a Time Series
Chart

Measures of Central Tendency
Measure of central tendency
• A value that represents a typical, or central, entry of a
data set.
• Most common measures of central tendency:
 Mean
 Median
 Mode
70
Measure of Central Tendency: Mean
Mean (average)
• The sum of all the data entries divided by the number
of entries.
• Sigma notation: Σx = add all of the data entries (x)
in the data set.
x
• Population mean:  
N
• Sample mean:
x
x
n
71
Example: Finding a Sample Mean
The prices (in dollars) for a sample of roundtrip flights
from Chicago, Illinois to Cancun, Mexico are listed.
What is the mean price of the flights?
872 432 397 427 388 782 397
72
Solution: Finding a Sample Mean
872 432 397 427 388 782 397
• The sum of the flight prices is
Σx = 872 + 432 + 397 + 427 + 388 + 782 + 397 = 3695
• To find the mean price, divide the sum of the prices
by the number of prices in the sample
x 3695
x

 527.9
n
7
The mean price of the flights is about $527.90.
73
Measure of Central Tendency: Median
Median
• The value that lies in the middle of the data when the
data set is ordered.
• Measures the center of an ordered data set by dividing
it into two equal parts.
• If the data set has an
 odd number of entries: median is the middle data
entry.
 even number of entries: median is the mean of
the two middle data entries.
74
Example: Finding the Median
The prices (in dollars) for a sample of roundtrip flights
from Chicago, Illinois to Cancun, Mexico are listed.
Find the median of the flight prices.
872 432 397 427 388 782 397
75
Solution: Finding the Median
872 432 397 427 388 782 397
• First order the data.
388 397 397 427 432 782 872
• There are seven entries (an odd number), the median
is the middle, or fourth, data entry.
The median price of the flights is $427.
76
Example: Finding the Median
The flight priced at $432 is no longer available. What is
the median price of the remaining flights?
872 397 427 388 782 397
77
Solution: Finding the Median
872 397 427 388 782 397
• First order the data.
388 397 397 427 782 872
• There are six entries (an even number), the median is
the mean of the two middle entries.
397  427
Median 
 412
2
The median price of the flights is $412.
78
Measure of Central Tendency: Mode
Mode
• The data entry that occurs with the greatest frequency.
• If no entry is repeated the data set has no mode.
• If two entries occur with the same greatest frequency,
each entry is a mode (bimodal).
79
Example: Finding the Mode
The prices (in dollars) for a sample of roundtrip flights
from Chicago, Illinois to Cancun, Mexico are listed.
Find the mode of the flight prices.
872 432 397 427 388 782 397
80
Solution: Finding the Mode
872 432 397 427 388 782 397
• Ordering the data helps to find the mode.
388 397 397 427 432 782 872
• The entry of 397 occurs twice, whereas the other
data entries occur only once.
The mode of the flight prices is $397.
81
Example: Finding the Mode
At a political debate a sample of audience members was
asked to name the political party to which they belong.
Their responses are shown in the table. What is the
mode of the responses?

The mode is Republican (the response occurring with
the greatest frequency). In this sample there were more
Republicans than people of any other single affiliation.
83
Comparing the Mean, Median, and Mode
• All three measures describe a typical entry of a data
set.
• Advantage of using the mean:
 The mean is a reliable measure because it takes
into account every entry of a data set.
• Disadvantage of using the mean:
 Greatly affected by outliers (a data entry that is far
removed from the other entries in the data set).
84
Example: Comparing the Mean, Median,
and Mode
Find the mean, median, and mode of the sample ages of
a class shown. Which measure of central tendency best
describes a typical entry of this data set? Are there any
outliers?

86
Solution: Comparing the Mean, Median,
and Mode
Mean ≈ 23.8 years
Median = 21.5 years
Mode = 20 years
• The mean takes every entry into account, but is
influenced by the outlier of 65.
• The median also takes every entry into account, and
it is not affected by the outlier.
• In this case the mode exists, but it doesn't appear to
represent a typical entry.
87
Solution: Comparing the Mean, Median,
and Mode
Sometimes a graphical comparison can help you decide
which measure of central tendency best represents a
data set.
In this case, it appears that the median best describes
the data set.

Interpreting Standard Deviation
• Standard deviation is a measure of the typical amount
an entry deviates from the mean.
• The more the entries are spread out, the greater the
standard deviation.
123
Interpreting Standard Deviation:
Empirical Rule (68 – 95 – 99.7 Rule)
For data with a (symmetric) bell-shaped distribution, the
standard deviation has the following characteristics:
• About 68% of the data lie within one standard
deviation of the mean.
• About 95% of the data lie within two standard
deviations of the mean.
• About 99.7% of the data lie within three standard
deviations of the mean.

In a survey conducted by the National Center for Health
Statistics, the sample mean height of women in the
United States (ages 20-29) was 64 inches, with a sample
standard deviation of 2.71 inches. Estimate the percent
of the women whose heights are between 64 inches and
69.42 inches.
126

• Because the distribution is bell-shaped, you can use
the Empirical Rule.

Chebychev’s Theorem
• The portion of any data set lying within k standard
deviations (k > 1) of the mean is at least:
1
1 2
k
1 3
• k = 2: In any data set, at least 1  2  or 75%

of the data lie within 2 standard deviations of the
mean.
1 8
• k = 3: In any data set, at least 1  2  or 88.9%
3
9
of the data lie within 3 standard deviations of the
mean.
128
Example: Using Chebychev’s Theorem
The age distribution for Florida is shown in the
histogram. Apply Chebychev’s Theorem to the data
using k = 2. What can you conclude?
129
Solution: Using Chebychev’s Theorem
k = 2: μ – 2σ = 39.2 – 2(24.8) = -10.4 (use 0 since age
can’t be negative)
μ + 2σ = 39.2 + 2(24.8) = 88.8
At least 75% of the population of Florida is between 0
and 88.8 years old.

138
Quartiles
• Fractiles are numbers that partition (divide) an
ordered data set into equal parts.
• Quartiles approximately divide an ordered data set
into four equal parts.
 First quartile, Q1: About one quarter of the data
fall on or below Q1.
 Second quartile, Q2: About one half of the data
fall on or below Q2 (median).
 Third quartile, Q3: About three quarters of the
data fall on or below Q3.
139
Example: Finding Quartiles
The test scores of 15 employees enrolled in a CPR
training course are listed. Find the first, second, and
third quartiles of the test scores.

Slide 2- 143
Interquartile Range
Interquartile Range (IQR)
• The difference between the third and first quartiles.
• IQR = Q3 – Q1
144
Example: Finding the Interquartile Range
Find the interquartile range of the test scores.
Recall Q1 = 10, Q2 = 15, and Q3 = 18
Solution:
• IQR = Q3 – Q1 = 18 – 10 = 8
The test scores in the middle portion of the data set
vary by at most 8 points.
145
Box-and-Whisker Plot
Box-and-whisker plot
• Exploratory data analysis tool.
• Highlights important features of a data set.
• Requires (five-number summary):
 Minimum entry
 First quartile Q1
 Median Q2
 Third quartile Q3
 Maximum entry
146
Drawing a Box-and-Whisker Plot
1. Find the five-number summary of the data set.
2. Construct a horizontal scale that spans the range of
the data.
3. Plot the five numbers above the horizontal scale.
4. Draw a box above the horizontal scale from Q1 to Q3
and draw a vertical line in the box at Q2.
5. Draw whiskers from the box to the minimum and
maximum entries.

About half the scores are between 10 and 18. By looking
at the length of the right whisker, you can conclude 37 is
a possible outlier.

Example: Interpreting Percentiles
The ogive represents the
cumulative frequency
distribution for SAT test
scores of college-bound
students in a recent year. What
test score represents the 72nd
percentile? How should you
interpret this? (Source: College
Board Online)
150
Solution: Interpreting Percentiles
The 72nd percentile
corresponds to a test score
of 1700.
This means that 72% of the
students had an SAT score
of 1700 or less.
151
The Standard Score
Standard Score (z-score)
• Represents the number of standard deviations a given
value x falls from the mean μ.

152
Example: Comparing z-Scores from
Different Data Sets
In 2007, Forest Whitaker won the Best Actor Oscar at
age 45 for his role in the movie The Last King of
Scotland. Helen Mirren won the Best Actress Oscar at
age 61 for her role in The Queen. The mean age of all
best actor winners is 43.7, with a standard deviation of
8.8. The mean age of all best actress winners is 36, with
a standard deviation of 11.5. Find the z-score that
corresponds to the age for each actor or actress. Then
compare your results.

154
Solution: Comparing z-Scores from
Different Data Sets
z = 0.15
z = 2.17
The z-score corresponding to the age of Helen Mirren
is more than two standard deviations from the mean,
so it is considered unusual. Compared to other Best
Actress winners, she is relatively older, whereas the
age of Forest Whitaker is only slightly higher than the
average age of other Best Actor winners.
