## CHAPTER 1 DESCRIPTIVE STATISTICS

Organizing and Graphing Qualitative Data Frequency Distributions/ Table Relative Frequency and Percentage Distribution Graphical Presentation of Qualitative Data Frequency Distributions / Table A frequency distribution for qualitative data lists all categories and the number of elements that belong to each of the categories. It exhibits the frequencies are distributed over various categories Also called a frequency distribution table or simply a frequency table.
The number of students who belong to a certain category is called the frequency of that category.

## CHAPTER 1 DESCRIPTIVE STATISTICS

Relative Frequency and Percentage Distribution A relative frequency distribution is a listing of all categories along with their relative frequencies (given as proportions or percentages). It is commonplace to give the frequency and relative frequency distribution together. Calculating relative frequency and percentage of a category

## CHAPTER 1 DESCRIPTIVE STATISTICS

Relative Frequency of a category = Frequency of that category Sum of all frequencies Percentage = (Relative Frequency)* 100

## CHAPTER 1 DESCRIPTIVE STATISTICS

Example 3 A sample of UUM staff-owned vehicles produced by Proton was identified and the make of each noted. The resulting sample follows (W = Wira, Is = Iswara, Wj = Waja, St = Satria, P = Perdana, Sv = Savvy):
W Is Wj Wj St W W Is Sv W P W Wj W W Is Wj Sv Is W Is Is W P W P W W Sv St Is W W Wj St W Is Wj Wj P St W St W Wj Wj Wj W W Sv

Construct a frequency distribution table for these data with their relative frequency and percentage.

Graphical Presentation of Qualitative Data Bar Graphs A graph made of bars whose heights represent the frequencies of respective categories. Such a graph is most helpful when you have many categories to represent. Notice that a gap is inserted between each of the bars. It has => simple/ vertical bar chart => horizontal bar chart => component bar chart => multiple bar chart

## CHAPTER 1 DESCRIPTIVE STATISTICS

Simple/ Vertical Bar Chart To construct a vertical bar chart, mark the various categories on the horizontal axis and mark the frequencies on the vertical axis Refer to Figure 2.1 and Figure 2.2,

Figur e 2.1

Another example of horizontal bar chart: Figure 2.4

Figure 2.4: Number of students at Diversity College who are immigrants, by last country of permanent residence

## CHAPTER 1 DESCRIPTIVE STATISTICS

Component Bar Chart To construct a component bar chart, all categories is in one bar and every bar is divided into components. The height of components should be tally with representative frequencies. Example 5 Suppose we want to illustrate the information below, representing the number of people participating in the activities offered by an outdoor pursuits centre during Jun of three consecutive years.

## CHAPTER 1 DESCRIPTIVE STATISTICS

Multiple Bar Chart To construct a multiple bar chart, each bars that representative any categories are gathered in groups. The height of the bar represented the frequencies of categories. Useful for making comparisons (two or more values). Example 6: Refer example 5,

## CHAPTER 1 DESCRIPTIVE STATISTICS

Another example of horizontal bar chart: Figure 2.7

## CHAPTER 1 DESCRIPTIVE STATISTICS

Pie Chart
A circle divided into portions that represent the relative frequencies or percentages of a population or a sample belonging to different categories. An alternative to the bar chart and useful for summarizing a single categorical variable if there are not too many categories. The chart makes it easy to compare relative sizes of each class/category.

## CHAPTER 1 DESCRIPTIVE STATISTICS

The whole pie represents the total sample or population. The pie is divided into different portions that represent the different categories. To construct a pie chart, we multiply 360o by the relative frequency for each category to obtain the degree measure or size of the angle for the corresponding categories. Example 7 (Table 2.6 and Figure 2.8):

Line Graph/Time Series Graph A graph represents data that occur over a specific period time of time. Line graphs are more popular than all other graphs combined because their visual characteristics reveal data trends clearly and these graphs are easy to create. When analyzing the graph, look for a trend or pattern that occurs over the time period.

## CHAPTER 1 DESCRIPTIVE STATISTICS

Example is the line ascending (indicating an increase over time) or descending (indicating a decrease over time). Another thing to look for is the slope, or steepness, of the line. A line that is steep over a specific time period indicates a rapid increase or decrease over that period. Two data sets can be compared on the same graph (called a compound time series graph) if two lines are used. Data collected on the same element for the same variable at different points in time or for different periods of time are called time series data.

## CHAPTER 1 DESCRIPTIVE STATISTICS

A line graph is a visual comparison of how two variables shown on the x- and y-axesare related or vary with each other. It shows related information by drawing a continuous line between all the points on a grid. Line graphs compare two variables: one is plotted along the x-axis (horizontal) and the other along the y-axis (vertical). The y-axis in a line graph usually indicates quantity (e.g., RM, numbers of sales litres) or percentage, while the horizontal x-axis often measures units of time. As a result, the line graph is often viewed as a time series graph

Example 9

## CHAPTER 1 DESCRIPTIVE STATISTICS

A transit manager wishes to use the following data for a presentation showing how Port Authority Transit ridership has changed over the years. Draw a time series graph for the data and summarize the findings. Year 1990 1991 1992 1993 1994 Ridership (in millions) 88.0 85.0 75.7 76.6 75.4

## CHAPTER 1 DESCRIPTIVE STATISTICS

Solution:
89 Ridership (in millions) 87 85 83 81 79 77 75 1990 1991 1992 Year 1993 1994

The graph shows a decline in ridership through 1992 and then leveling off for the years 1993 and 1994.

## CHAPTER 1 DESCRIPTIVE STATISTICS

Frequency Distributions A frequency distribution for quantitative data list all the classes and the number of values that belong to each class. Data presented in form of frequency distribution are called grouped data.

## CHAPTER 1 DESCRIPTIVE STATISTICS

The class boundary is given by the midpoint of the upper limit of one class and the lower limit of the next class. Also called real class limit. To find the midpoint of the upper limit of the first class and the lower limit of the second class, we divide the sum of these two limits by 2.

## CHAPTER 1 DESCRIPTIVE STATISTICS

e.g.:
400 + 401 = 400.5 2
class boundary

Class Width (class size) Class width = Upper boundary Lower boundary e.g. : Width of the first class = 600.5 400.5 = 200

## CHAPTER 1 DESCRIPTIVE STATISTICS

Class Midpoint or Mark
class midpoint or mark = Lower limit + Upper limit 2

e.g:
Midpoint of the 1st class = 401 + 600 = 500.5 2

## CHAPTER 1 DESCRIPTIVE STATISTICS

Constructing Frequency Distribution Tables 1. To decide the number of classes, we used Sturges formula, which is c = 1 + 3.3 log n where c is the no. of classes n is the no. of observations in the data set. 2. Class width, This class width is rounded to a convenient number.
Largest value - Smallest value Number of classes Range i> c i>

## CHAPTER 1 DESCRIPTIVE STATISTICS

3. Lower Limit of the First Class or the Starting Point Use the smallest value in the data set.

Example 11 The following data give the total home runs hit by all players of each of the 30 Major League Baseball teams during 2004 season

## CHAPTER 1 DESCRIPTIVE STATISTICS

Graphing Grouped Data
Histograms
A histogram is a graph in which the class boundaries are marked on the horizontal axis and either the frequencies, relative frequencies, or percentages are marked on the vertical axis. The frequencies, relative frequencies or percentages are represented by the heights of the bars. In histogram, the bars are drawn adjacent to each other and there is a space between y axis and the first bar.

## CHAPTER 1 DESCRIPTIVE STATISTICS

Example 13 (Refer example 11)
12 10 Frequency 8 6 4 2 0

## CHAPTER 1 DESCRIPTIVE STATISTICS

For a very large data set, as the number of classes is increased (and the width of classes is decreased), the frequency polygon eventually becomes a smooth curve called a frequency distribution curve or simply a frequency curve.

## CHAPTER 1 DESCRIPTIVE STATISTICS

Shape of Histogram Same as polygon. For a very large data set, as the number of classes is increased (and the width of classes is decreased), the frequency polygon eventually becomes a smooth curve called a frequency distribution curve or simply a frequency curve.

## CHAPTER 1 DESCRIPTIVE STATISTICS

The most common of shapes are: (i) Symmetric

## CHAPTER 1 DESCRIPTIVE STATISTICS

(ii) Right skewed and (iii) Left skewed

## CHAPTER 1 DESCRIPTIVE STATISTICS

Cumulative Frequency Distributions A cumulative frequency distribution gives the total number of values that fall below the upper boundary of each class. Example 14: Using the frequency distribution of table 2.11,

Thus, an average of times the people have been to the dentist in the last five years is 9.74

## CHAPTER 1 DESCRIPTIVE STATISTICS

Median Step 1: Construct the cumulative frequency distribution. Step 2: Decide the class that contain the median. Class Median is the first class with the value of cumulative frequency is at least n/2. Step 3: Find the median by using the following formula:

## CHAPTER 1 DESCRIPTIVE STATISTICS

Md n e ia =L + m n 2 -F i fm

Where: n = the total frequency F = the total frequency before class median i = the class width

fm
Lm

= the frequency of the class median = the lower boundary of the class median

## CHAPTER 1 DESCRIPTIVE STATISTICS

Example 23 Based on the grouped data below, find the median: Time to travel to work 1 10 11 20 21 30 31 40 41 50 Frequency 8 14 12 9 7

## CHAPTER 1 DESCRIPTIVE STATISTICS

Solution: 1st Step: Construct the cumulative frequency distribution Time to travel to work 1 10 11 20 21 30 31 40 41 50 Frequency 8 14 12 9 7 Cumulative Frequency 8 22 34 43 50

## CHAPTER 1 DESCRIPTIVE STATISTICS

n 50 = = 25 2 2 So, F = 22, Therefore,

fm

= 12,

## Lm= 20.5 and i = 10

Thus, 25 persons take less than 23 minutes to travel to work and another 25 persons take more than 23 minutes to travel to work.

n F i Median = Lm + 2 fm 50 22 10 = 20.5 + 2 12 = 23

## CHAPTER 1 DESCRIPTIVE STATISTICS

Exercise 9: A survey research company asks 100 people how many times they have been to the dentist in the last five years. Their grouped responses appear below.

## CHAPTER 1 DESCRIPTIVE STATISTICS

Solution:
Number of Visits Number of Responses 04 59 10 14 15 19 16 25 48 11 Cumulative frequency 16 41 89 100

## CHAPTER 1 DESCRIPTIVE STATISTICS

n 100 = = 50 2 2 Class median is the 3rd class

## So, F = 41, fm = 12, Lm= 9.5 and i = 5 Therefore,

n F i Median = Lm + 2 fm 100 41 5 = 9.5 + 2 48 = 10.4375

Thus, 50 people take less than 10.4375 times to see the dentist and another 50 people take more than 10.4375 times to see the dentist in the last five years

## CHAPTER 1 DESCRIPTIVE STATISTICS

Mode Mode is the value that has the highest frequency in a data set. For grouped data, class mode (or, modal class) is the class with the highest frequency. To find mode for grouped data, use the following formula

## CHAPTER 1 DESCRIPTIVE STATISTICS

1 M ode =L mo + i 1+2
Where:

## 1 is the difference between the frequency of class

mode and the frequency of the class before the class mode

## 2 is the difference between the frequency of class

mode and the frequency of the class after the class mode i is the class width Lmo is the lower boundary of class mode

## CHAPTER 1 DESCRIPTIVE STATISTICS

Example 24 Based on the grouped data below, find the mode Time to travel to work 1 10 11 20 21 30 31 40 41 50 Frequency 8 14 12 9 7

## CHAPTER 1 DESCRIPTIVE STATISTICS

Solution: Based on the table,

## CHAPTER 1 DESCRIPTIVE STATISTICS

Relationship among mean, median & mode
As discussed in previous topic, histogram or a frequency distribution curve can assume either skewed shape or symmetrical shape. Knowing the value of mean, median and mode can give us some idea about the shape of frequency curve.

## CHAPTER 1 DESCRIPTIVE STATISTICS

Figure 2.20: Mean, median, and mode for a symmetric histogram and frequency distribution curve

## CHAPTER 1 DESCRIPTIVE STATISTICS

Dispersion Measurement The measures of central tendency such as mean, median and mode do not reveal the whole picture of the distribution of a data set. Two data sets with the same mean may have a completely different spreads. The variation among the values of observations for one data set may be much larger or smaller than for the other data set.

## CHAPTER 1 DESCRIPTIVE STATISTICS

## CHAPTER 1 DESCRIPTIVE STATISTICS

Variance and Standard Deviation
Standard deviation is the most used measure of dispersion. A Standard Deviation value tells how closely the values of a data set clustered around the mean. Lower value of standard deviation indicates that the data set value are spread over relatively smaller range around the mean. Larger value of data set indicates that the data set value are spread over relatively larger around the mean (far from mean).

## CHAPTER 1 DESCRIPTIVE STATISTICS

The properties of variance and standard deviation: The standard deviation is a measure of variation of all values from the mean. The value of the variance and the standard deviation are never negative. Also, larger values of variance or standard deviation indicate greater amounts of variation. The value of s can increase dramatically with the inclusion of one or more outliers.

FORMULA

## CHAPTER 1 DESCRIPTIVE STATISTICS

If Sk +ve right skewed If Sk -ve left skewed If Sk = 0 symmetry

## CHAPTER 1 DESCRIPTIVE STATISTICS

The duration of cancer patient warded in Hospital Seberang Jaya recorded in a frequency distribution. From the record, the mean is 28 days, median is 25 days and mode is 23 days. Given the standard deviation is 4.2 days.
What is the type of distribution? Find the skewness coefficient
Example 32

## CHAPTER 1 DESCRIPTIVE STATISTICS

Solution: This distribution is right skewed because the mean is the largest value
Sk = Mean - Mode 28 23 = = 11905 . s 4.2 OR 3 ( Mean - Median ) s = 3 ( 28 25 ) 4.2 = 21429 .

Sk =

## So, from the Sk value this distribution is right skewed.
