STATISTICS NOTES FOR 09-06-07 T Relative Frequency Table o Increased sample sizes require data to be condensed o Advantage: summary table of data arranged into numerically ordered class groupings o Disadvantage: value of individual observations are lost through the grouping process. T Relative Frequency Calculation: o = Frequency divided by total count o Expresses as a proportion or percent independent of the size of the data set o Used when comparing two data sets of different size o Used for comparing yearly data or organizational data. T Frequency Table Construction: o Determine number of classes: 5 to 15 o Determine the width of class intervals – range / (number of classes -1) o Establish the bounderies of the class o EX: 47-8 o (5 - 1) = 9….. = 10 FREQ.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
