## STATISTICAL Chapter 3. DESCRIPTION OF DATA

Frequency Distributions Grouped Data Percentiles, Deciles & Quartiles Graphical Representations Symmetry and Skewness

Objectives
Set up a frequency distribution for a mass of data. Calculate the mean, median and mode mean for grouped data. Calculate and interpret other measures of location like the deciles, quartiles & percentiles.

Calculate the standard deviation, variance, mean deviation and quartile deviation for dd t grouped data. Construct histograms, bar charts, frequency polygons, pie charts and ogives. Describe a given set of data in terms of skewness and kurtosis.

Statistical data collected should be arranged in such a manner that will allow a reader to distinguish their essential features. Depending on the type and the objectives of the person presenting the information, data may be presented using one or a combination of three forms.

8/27/2011

## Tabular Form - data is presented in rows and columns

Frequency Distribution
When that data include a large number of observations, it is convenient to group the values into mutually exclusive classes and show the number of observations occurring in each class in a tabular form. A frequency distribution is the arrangement of data that shows the frequency of occurrence of values falling within arbitrarily defined ranges of the variable known as class intervals. The smallest and largest values that fall in a given interval are called class limits.

## Class Frequency and Class Mark

Class frequency refers to the

## Find the range. Determine the interval size by dividing the

range by the desired number of classes which is normally not less than 10 and not more than 20. h Determine the class limits of the class intervals. Tabulation is facilitated if the lower class limits of the class intervals are multiples of the class size. The bottom interval must include the lowest score.

number of observations falling in a particular class while the midpoint between the upper and lower class limits is called class mark/midpoint.

Problem:

## List the intervals, beginning at the

bottom. Tally the frequencies. frequencies Summarize these under a column labeled f. Total this column and record the number at the bottom.

## Construct a frequency distribution of the given scores on a test.

8/27/2011

Solution:
Computing for the range:

We choose 5 because it is the odd number. If i = 5, lowest limit should be 25. We choose 25 because it is the smallest multiple of the chosen interval which is smaller than the smallest value in the set set. If lowest limit is 25, the bottom interval should be 29 25. The interval 29 - 25 contains the lowest score (28).

Midpoint Method
After the f column, make another column and enter the midpoint (Xm) of each class. Multiply the frequency with the midpoint and enter it in the next column Label the column f Xm. Get the sum column. sum. Use the formula:

Short Method
Choose a class at or near the middle of the distribution to be designated as the origin. After the f column, construct the deviation column (d). Mark the chosen class zero. In succession, write -1, -2 and so on for classes lower in value than the origin. In like manner, write 1, 2, 3 and so on for classes greater in value than the origin. Construct f x d column and get the algebraic sum.

## BAR GRAPH Types of Graphs

The bar graph is particularly useful in presenting data gathered from discrete variables on a nominal scale It uses rectangles scale. or bars to represent discrete classes of data. The base of each bar corresponds to a class interval of the frequency distribution and the heights of the bars represent the frequencies associated with each class.

12

8/27/2011

HISTOGRAM
The histogram is similar to a bar chart but the bases of each bar are the class boundaries rather than class limits.

## Kurtosis and Skewness

The measures of skewness and kurtosis indicate the extent of departure of a distribution from normal and permit comparison of two or more distributions.

KURTOSIS (ku)
Kurtosis refers to the flatness or peakedness of a frequency distribution. It shows the shape of the curve or the arrangement of a set of distribution in relation to the other set of distribution. The coefficient of kurtosis is given by:

ku

Q P90 P 10

Types of Kurtosis
leptokurtic (ku < 0.263) mesokurtic (ku = 0.263) platykurtic (ku > 0.263)

SKEWNESS (sk)
Skewness refers to the symmetry or
asymmetry of a frequency distribution. The coefficient of skewness is given by:

sk
