We can use the mode as a measure of central tendency at all four levels of measurement (nominal, ordinal, interval, and ratio). 2 points a) False 5. The mean is only valid as a measure of central tendency for variables measured at ________________The sum of deviations at zero 6. What measure(s) of central tendency is (are) appropriate for the variable for gender and explain why? 2 points The mean is not a good set for the variable gender because it does not fall into a numerical data set.

    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.
