Data
What is Data?
• Data is the generic term for numerical
information that has been obtained on a set of
objects/individuals etc.
• Variable:
 Some characteristic of the objects/individuals (e.g.,
height)
• Data:
 the values of a variable for a certain set of
objects/individuals
Two branches of statistics:
Descriptive Statistics
Describes a given set of data you have.
Inferential Statistics
Given the data you have about these people,
does this say anything about other people?
Today: Descriptive Statistics
• Graphical Presentations of Distributions
 Histograms
 Frequency Polygons
 Cumulative Distributions
 Box-and-whisker plots
• Descriptive Measures of Data
 Measures of Central Tendency
 Measures of Dispersion
Organizing Data

Box and Whisker Plots
• Graphical representation of the 4 quartiles, (e.g. data is
split into 4 equally sized groups)
• If there are an even number of observations, let the “top”
be the top half, and let the “bottom” be the bottom half.
• If there are an odd number of observations, let the “top”
be everything above the median and the “bottom” be
everything below the median.
• The first quartile is the “median of the bottom”. The third
quartile is the “median of the top”.

• Mean

• Mode
• May already be familiar with these
concepts, but I want you to think of them in
relation to describing data.
Mode
• Most frequent observation or observation
class
• There can be several distinct modes

Median
• Any value M for which at least 50% of all
observations are at or above M and at
least 50% are at or below M.
• Resistant measure of central tendency
(not heavily influenced by extreme values)
Calculating the Median
Order all observations from smallest to largest.
If the number of observations is odd, it is the
“middle” object, namely the [(n+1)/2]th
observation.
For n = 61, it is the 31st
If the number of observations is even then, to get a
unique value, take the average of the (n/2)th and
the (n/2 +1)th observation.
For = 60, it is the average of the 30th and the 31st
observation.

Since there are an even number of data points,
Take the average of the middle two values.
Mean
• Sum up all observations (say, n many) and
divide the total by n.
• Extreme values strongly influence the
mean
• Mean as the center of the value in a
distribution (center of gravity)
Calculating the mean
• Suppose that we collect n many observations
• Let
denote the individual
X 1 , X 2 , X 3 ,..., X n

Measures of Dispersion
• Population Standard Deviation
• Sample Standard Deviation
If we want to know how much the
values vary around the mean….
We could calculate how much each value varies from the mean…

Because of the way we calculate the mean,
this formula gives zero no matter what data you have!

There are n-1 “degrees of freedom”
(If you know the mean and n-1 observations
then you can figure out the n’th observation)
Computational Formulas
• Note that there are computational formulas
for the standard deviation.
• Look for them in ALEKS and write them
down.
• Remember you can bring notes to your
assessments
For Next Week…
•
•
•
•
Keep working on ALEKS
Finish the descriptive statistics section
Watch the second video
If you can, start probability section before
Jason’s lecture next week.
• Remember: Office Hours and Lab are
always available for you.
