Descriptive Statistics
§ 2.4
Measures of
Variation
Range
The range of a data set is the difference between the maximum and
minimum date entries in the set.
Range = (Maximum data entry) – (Minimum data entry)
Example:
The following data are the closing prices for a certain stock
on ten successive Fridays. Find the range.
Stock
56 56 57 58 61 63
63 67 67 67
The range is 67 – 56 = 11.

Deviation
The deviation of an entry x in a population data set is the difference
between the entry and the mean μ of the data set.
Deviation of x = x – μ
Example:
The following data are the closing
prices for a certain stock on five
successive Fridays. Find the
deviation of each price.
The mean stock price is
μ = 305/5 = 61.

Variance and Standard Deviation
The population variance of a population data set of N entries is
(x  μ )2

Population variance =  
.
N
“sigma
squared”
The population standard deviation of a population data set of N
entries is the square root of the population variance.

Interpreting Standard Deviation
When interpreting standard deviation, remember that 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.

Standard Deviation for Grouped Data
(x  x )2f
Sample standard deviation = s 
n 1
where n = Σf is the number of entries in the data set, and x is the
data value or the midpoint of an interval.
Example:
The following frequency distribution represents the ages
of 30 students in a statistics class. The mean age of the
students is 30.3 years. Find the standard deviation of the
frequency distribution.

13. For graph b, the more of the data is in the
center and it is less spread out, therefore, it will
have the smaller standard deviation (16). Graph a
will have the larger standard deviation (24)
14 Graph b has more variability, therefore it
would have a standard deviation of 5, graph a has
a standard deviation of 2.4
17 Company B, larger standard deviation, more
offers at the ends, but you would also be more
likely to get an offer less than 29,000

18. The lower standard deviation suggests less
variability…more consistency, so player B is more
consistent.
