MEASURES OF CENTRAL LOCATION
MEAN
• Mean is defined as follows:
Sum of the measurements
Mean =
Number of measurements
• In the following, sample mean and population means
are discussed separately.
• Note the difference of notation - sample mean is
denote by x and the population mean is denoted by
. The number of values in a sample is denoted by n
and the number of values in the population is
denoted by N.

MEASURES OF CENTRAL LOCATION
SAMPLE MEAN
• Statistic: a measurable characteristic of a sample.
• A sample of five executives received the following
amounts of bonus last year: \$14,000, \$15,000,
\$17,000, \$16,000, and \$15,000. Find the average
bonus for these five executives.
• Since these values represent a sample size of 5, the
sample mean is (14,000 + 15,000 +17,000 + 16,000
+15,000)/5 = \$15,400.

values divided by the number of population values:

MEASURES OF CENTRAL LOCATION
POPULATION MEAN
• Parameter: a measurable characteristic of a
population.
• The Keller family owns four cars. The following is the
mileage attained by each car: 56,000, 23,000,
42,000, and 73,000. Find the average miles covered
by each car.
• The mean is (56,000 + 23,000 + 42,000 + 73,000)/4
= 48,500

MEASURES OF CENTRAL LOCATION
PROPERTIES OF MEAN
• Data possessing an interval scale or a ratio scale,
usually have a mean.
• All the values are included in computing the mean.
• A set of data has a unique mean.
• The mean is affected by unusually large or small data
values.
• The arithmetic mean is the only measure of central
tendency where the sum of the deviations of each
value from the mean is zero.

MEASURES OF CENTRAL LOCATION
PROPERTIES OF MEAN
• Consider the set of values: 3, 8, and 4. The mean is
5. Illustrating the fifth property, (3-5) + (8-5) + (4-5) =
-2 +3 -1 = 0. In other words,

MEASURES OF CENTRAL LOCATION
MEDIAN
• Median: The midpoint of the values after they have
been ordered from the smallest to the largest, or the
largest to the smallest. There are as many values
above the median as below it in the data array.
• For an even set of numbers, the median will be the
arithmetic average of the two middle numbers.
• The median is the most appropriate measure of
central location to use when the data under
consideration are ranked data, rather than
quantitative data. For example, if 13 universities are
ranked according to the reputation, university 7 is the
one of median reputation.
10
MEASURES OF CENTRAL LOCATION
MEDIAN
• Compute the median for the following data.
• The age of a sample of five college students is: 21,
25, 19, 20, and 22.
• Arranging the data in ascending order gives: 19, 20,
21, 22, 25. Thus the median is 21.
• The height of four basketball players, in inches, is 76,
73, 80, and 75.
• Arranging the data in ascending order gives: 73, 75,
76, 80. Thus the median is 75.5
11
MEASURES OF CENTRAL LOCATION
MODE
• The mode is the value of the observation that
appears most frequently.
• The mode is most useful when an important aspect of
describing the data involves determining the number
of times each value occurs. If the data are qualitative
(e.g., number of graduate in various
accounting,finance, etc.) then, mode is useful (e.g., a
modal class is accounting).
• EXAMPLE 6: The exam scores for ten students are:
81, 93, 84, 75, 68, 87, 81, 75, 81, 87. Since the
score of 81 occurs the most, the modal score is 81.
12
MEASURES OF CENTRAL LOCATION
MEAN, MEDIAN, MODE
• Mean: affected by unusually large/small data, may be
used if the data are quantitative (ratio or interval scale).
• Median: most appropriate if the data are ranked (ordinal
scale)
• Mode: most appropriate if the data are qualitative
(nominal scale)
• Appropriate measures if the data is
– quantitative: mean, median, mode
– ranked: median, mode
– qualitative: mode

PERCENTILES
• Percentiles divide the distribution into 100 groups.
• The p-th percentile is defined to be that numerical value
such that at most p% of the values are smaller than that
value and at most (100 – p)% are larger than that value
in an ordered data set.
• For example, if the 78th percentile of GMAT scores is
600, then at most 78% scores are below 600 and at
most 22% scores are above 600 (actually, this is also
true that at least 22% are 600 or above).
• Two questions:
– Find percentile of a given value
– Find value of a given percentile

FIND PERCENTILE OF A GIVEN VALUE
• The percentile corresponding to a given value (X)
is computed by using the formula:
number of values below X + 0.5
100%
Percentile 
total number of values

A teacher gives a 20-point test to 10 students.
Scores are as follows: 18, 15, 12, 6, 8, 2, 3, 5, 20, 10.
Find the percentile rank of the score of 12.
Ordered set of scores: 2, 3, 5, 6, 8, 10, 12, 15, 18, 20.
There are 6 values below 12: 2, 3, 5, 6, 8, 10
Percentile = [(6 + 0.5)/10](100%) = 65th percentile.
Student did better than 65% of the class.

FIND VALUE OF A GIVEN PERCENTILE
•
•
•
•
Procedure: Let p be the percentile and n the sample size.
Step 1: Arrange the data in the ascending order.
Step 2: Compute c = (np)/100.
Step 3: If c is not a whole number, round up to the next
whole number. If c is a whole number, use the value
halfway between c and c+1.
• Step 4: The c-th value of the required percentile.

FIND VALUE OF A GIVEN PERCENTILE
•

•
•
Example: Consider data set 2, 3, 5, 6, 8, 10, 12, 15, 18, 20.
Note: the data set is already ordered.
Find the value of the 25th percentile
n = 10, p = 25, so c = (1025)/100 = 2.5. Hence round up to
c = 3. Thus, the value of the 25th percentile is the 3rd value
X = 5.
• Find the value of the 80th percentile
• n = 10, p = 25, so c = (1080)/100 = 8. Thus the value of
the 80th percentile is the average of the 8th and 9th values.
Thus, the 80th percentile for the data set is (15 + 18)/2 =
16.5.

RELATIVE STANDING: PERCENTILES
DECILES AND QUARTILES
• Deciles divide the data set into 10 groups.
• Deciles are denoted by D1, D2, …, D9 with the
corresponding percentiles being P10, P20, …, P90
• Quartiles divide the data set into 4 groups.
• Quartiles are denoted by Q1, Q2, and Q3 with the
corresponding percentiles being P25, P50, and P75.
• The median is the same as P50 or Q2.
20
RELATIVE STANDING: PERCENTILES
INTERQUARTILE RANGE AND OUTLIERS
• An outlier is an extremely high or an extremely low data
value when compared with the rest of the data values.
• The Interquartile Range, IQR = Q3 – Q1.
• To determine whether a data value can be considered as
an outlier:
• Step 1: Compute Q1 and Q3.
• Step 2: Find the IQR = Q3 – Q1.
• Step 3: Compute (1.5)(IQR).
• Step 4: Compute Q1 – (1.5)(IQR) and Q3 + (1.5)(IQR).
21
RELATIVE STANDING: PERCENTILES
INTERQUARTILE RANGE AND OUTLIERS
• To determine whether a data value can be considered as
an outlier:
• Step 5: Compare the data value (say X) with Q1–
(1.5)(IQR) and Q3 + (1.5)(IQR).
• If X < Q1 – (1.5)(IQR) or
if X > Q3 + (1.5)(IQR), then X is considered an outlier.
22
RELATIVE STANDING: PERCENTILES
INTERQUARTILE RANGE AND OUTLIERS
• Given the data set 5, 6, 12, 13, 15, 18, 22, 50, can the
value of 50 be considered as an outlier?
• Q1 = 9, Q3 = 20, IQR = 11. Verify.
• (1.5)(IQR) = (1.5)(11) = 16.5.
• 9 – 16.5 = – 7.5 and 20 + 16.5 = 36.5.
• The value of 50 is outside the range – 7.5 to 36.5,
hence 50 is an outlier.
23
RELATIVE STANDING
BOX PLOTS
• When the data set contains a small number of values, a
box plot is used to graphically represent the data set.
These plots involve five values:
– the minimum value (S)
– the lower quartile (Q1)
– the median (Q2)
– the upper quartile (Q3)
– and the maximum value (L)

INTERPRETATION
• If the median is near the center of the box, the
distribution is approximately symmetric.
• If the median falls to the left of the center of the box, the
distribution is positively skewed.
• If the median falls to the right of the center of the box, the
distribution is negatively skewed.
• If the lines are about the same length, the distribution is
approximately symmetric.
• If the line segment to the right of the box is larger than
the one to the left, the distribution is positively skewed.
• If the line segment to the left of the box is larger than the
one to the right, the distribution is positively skewed. 28
