NUMBER OF CLASSES AND CLASS WIDTH
 The number of classes should be between 5 and 15.
• Fewer than 5 classes cause excessive
summarization.
• More than 15 classes leave too much detail.
 Class Width
• Divide the range by the number of classes for an
approximate class width
• Round up to a convenient number

RELATIVE AND CUMULATIVE FREQUENCY
 Relative frequency is the proportion of the
total frequency that is in any given class interval
in a frequency distribution.
 Relative frequency is the individual class
frequency divided by the total frequency.
 The cumulative frequency is a running total
of frequencies through the classes of a frequency
distribution.
 The cumulative frequency for each class interval
is the frequency for that class interval added to
the preceding cumulative total.

QUANTITATIVE DATA GRAPHS
 One of the most effective mechanisms for presenting
data in a form meaningful to decision makers is
graphical depiction.
 Through graphs and charts, the decision maker can
often get an overall picture of the data and reach some
useful conclusions merely by studying the chart or
graph.
 Converting data to graphics can be creative and artful.
 Often the most difficult step in this process is to reduce
important and sometimes expensive data to a graphic
picture that is both clear and concise and yet consistent
with the message of the original data.
 One of the most important uses of graphical depiction
in statistics is to help the researcher determine the
shape of a distribution.

HISTOGRAMS
 One of the more widely used types of graphs for
quantitative data is the histogram.
 A histogram is a series of contiguous bars or
rectangles that represent the frequency of data in
given class intervals.
 If the class intervals used along the horizontal
axis are equal, then the height of the bars
represent the frequency of values in a given class
interval.

HISTOGRAM
 If the class intervals are unequal, then the areas
of the bars (rectangles) can be used for relative
comparisons of class frequencies
 A histogram is a useful tool for differentiating the
frequencies of class intervals.
 A quick glance at a histogram reveals which class
intervals produce the highest frequency totals

FREQUENCY POLYGONS
 A frequency polygon, like the histogram, is a
graphical display of class frequencies.
 However, instead of using bars or rectangles like
a histogram, in a frequency polygon each class
frequency is plotted as a dot at the class
midpoint, and the dots are connected by a series
of line segments.
 Construction of a frequency polygon begins by
scaling class midpoints along the horizontal axis
and the frequency scale along the vertical axis.
 A dot is plotted for the associated frequency value
at each class midpoint.
 Connecting these midpoint dots completes the
graph.

OGIVES
 An ogive (o-jive) is a cumulative frequency polygon.
 Construction begins by labeling the x-axis with the
class endpoints and the y-axis with the frequencies.
 However, the use of cumulative frequency values
requires that the scale along the y-axis be great
enough to include the frequency total.
 A dot of zero frequency is plotted at the beginning of
the first class, and construction proceeds by
marking a dot at the end of each class interval for
the cumulative value.
 Connecting the dots then completes the ogive.

DOT PLOTS
 A relatively simple statistical chart that is generally used
to display continuous, Quantitative data is the dot plot.
 In a dot plot, each data value is plotted along the
horizontal axis and is represented on the chart by a dot.
 If multiple data points have the same values, the dots
will stack up vertically.
 Dot plots can be especially useful for observing the
overall shape of the distribution of data points along with
identifying data values or intervals for which there are
groupings and gaps in the data.

STEM-AND-LEAF PLOT
 Another way to organize raw data into groups
besides using a frequency distribution is a stem-
and-leaf plot.
 This technique is simple and provides a unique
view of the data.
 A stem-and-leaf plot is constructed by separating
the digits for each number of the data into two
groups, a stem and a leaf.
 The leftmost digits are the stem and consist of the
higher valued digits.
 The rightmost digits are the leaves and contain
the lower values.

PIE CHARTS
 A pie chart is a circular depiction of data where the area of the
whole pie represents 100% of the data and slices of the pie
represent a percentage breakdown of the sublevels.
 Pie charts show the relative magnitudes of the parts to the
whole.
 They are widely used in business, particularly to depict such
things as budget categories, market share, and time/resource
allocations.
 However, the use of pie charts is minimized in the sciences and
technology because pie charts can lead to less accurate
judgments than are possible with other types of graphs.
 Generally, it is more difficult for the viewer to interpret the
relative size of angles in a pie chart than to judge the length of
rectangles in a bar chart.

BAR GRAPHS
 Another widely used qualitative data graphing
technique is the bar graph or bar chart.
 A bar graph or chart contains two or more
categories along one axis and a series of bars, one
for each category, along the other axis.
 Typically, the length of the bar represents the
magnitude of the measure (amount, frequency,
money, percentage, etc.) for each category.
 The bar graph is qualitative because the
categories are non-numerical, and it may be
either horizontal or vertical.

BAR GRAPHS
 In Excel, horizontal bar graphs are referred to as
bar charts, and vertical bar graphs are referred
to as column charts.
 A bar graph generally is constructed from the
same type of data that is used to produce a pie
chart.
 However, an advantage of using a bar graph over
a pie chart for a given set of data is that for
categories that are close in value, it is considered
easier to see the difference in the bars of bar
graph than discriminating between pie slices.

PARETO CHARTS
 A third type of qualitative data graph is a Pareto chart,
which could be viewed as a particular application of the
bar graph.
 An important concept and movement in business is
total quality management.
 One of the important aspects of total quality
management is the constant search for causes of
problems in products and processes.
 A graphical technique for displaying problem causes is
Pareto analysis.
 Pareto analysis is a quantitative tallying of the number
and types of defects that occur with a product or
service.
 Analysts use this tally to produce a vertical bar chart
that displays the most common types of defects, ranked
in order of occurrence from left to right. The bar chart
is called a Pareto chart. 32

 Suppose the number of electric motors being
rejected by inspectors for a company hasbeen
increasing.
 Company officials examine the records of several
hundred of the motors inwhich at least one defect
was found to determine which defects occurred
more frequently.
 They find that 40% of the defects involved poor
wiring, 30% involved a short in the coil, 25%
involved a defective plug, and 5% involved
cessation of bearings.

MEASURES OF CENTRAL TENDENCY:
UNGROUPED DATA
 One type of measure that is used to describe a set
of data is the measure of central tendency.
 Measures of central tendency yield information
about the center, or middle part, of a group of
numbers.
 Measures of central tendency do not focus on the
span of the data set or how far values are from
the middle numbers.
 The measures of central tendency here for
ungrouped data are the mode, the median, the
mean, percentiles, and quartiles.

MEDIAN
 The median is the middle value in an ordered array of
numbers.
 For an array with an odd number of terms, the
median is the middle number.
 For an array with an even number of terms, the
median is the average of the two middle numbers.
 A disadvantage of the median is that not all the
information from the numbers is used.
price of the most expensive house does not really
enter into the computation of the median.
 The level of data measurement must be at least
ordinal for a median to be meaningful.

MEAN
 The mean is affected by each and every value,
 The mean uses all the data, and each data item
influences the mean.
 It is also a disadvantage because extremely large
or small values can cause the mean to be pulled
toward the extreme value.
 The mean is the most commonly used measure of
central tendency because it uses each data item
in its computation, it is a familiar measure, and
it has mathematical properties that make it
attractive to use in inferential statistics analysis.

PERCENTILES
 Percentiles are measures of central tendency that divide
a group of data into 100 parts.
 There are 99 percentiles because it takes 99 dividers to
separate a group of data into 100 parts.
 The nth percentile is the value such that at least n
percent of the data are below that value and at most
(100 - n) percent are above that value.
 Example: 90th percentile indicates that at least 90% of
the data lie below it, and at most 10% of the data lie
above it
 The median and the 50th percentile have the same
value.
 Applicable for ordinal, interval, and ratio data
 Not applicable for nominal data

 A company produces a lightweight valve that is
specified to weigh 1365 grams.
 Unfortunately, because of imperfections in the
manufacturing process not all of the valves produced
weigh exactly 1365 grams.
 In fact, the weights of the valves produced are
normally distributed with a mean weight of 1365
grams and a standard deviation of 294 grams.
 Within what range of weights would approximately
95% of the valve weights fall?
 Approximately 16% of the weights would be more
than what value?
 Approximately 0.15% of the weights would be less
than what value?

 In the computing industry the average age of
professional employees tends to be younger than in
 Suppose the average age of a professional employed
by a particular computer firm is 28 with a standard
deviation of 6 years.
 A histogram of professional employee ages with this
firm reveals that the data are not normally
distributed but rather are amassed in the 20s and
that few workers are over 40.
 Apply Chebyshev’s theorem to determine within
what range of ages would at least 80% of the
workers’ ages fall.

variation.
Z- SCORE
 A z score represents the number of standard
deviations a value (x) is above or below the mean
of a set of numbers when the data are normally
distributed.
 Using z scores allows translation of a value’s raw
distance from the mean into units of standard
deviations.
 If a z score is negative, the raw value (x) is below
the mean. If the z score is positive,
 the raw value (x) is above the mean
