Sanjay Rastogi, IIFT ,New Delhi Measures of Central Tendency: Ungrouped Data Measures of central tendency yield information about “particular places or locations in a group of numbers.” Common Measures of Location Mode Median Mean Percentiles Quartiles
Sanjay Rastogi, IIFT ,New Delhi Mode The most frequently occurring value in a data set Applicable to all levels of data measurement (nominal, ordinal, interval, and ratio) Bimodal -- Data sets that have two modes Multimodal -- Data sets that contain more than two modes

Sanjay Rastogi, IIFT ,New Delhi Median: Computational Procedure First Procedure Arrange the observations in an ordered array. If there is an odd number of terms, the median is the middle term of the ordered array. If there is an even number of terms, the median is the average of the middle two terms. Second Procedure The median’s position in an ordered array is given by (n+1)/2.
Sanjay Rastogi, IIFT ,New Delhi Median: Example with an Odd Number of Terms Ordered Array 3 4 5 7 8 9 11 14 15 16 16 17 19 19 20 21 22 There are 17 terms in the ordered array. Position of median = (n+1)/2 = (17+1)/2 = 9 The median is the 9th term, 15. If the 22 is replaced by 100, the median is 15. If the 3 is replaced by -103, the median is 15.

Sanjay Rastogi, IIFT ,New Delhi Median: Example with an Even Number of Terms Ordered Array 3 4 5 7 8 9 11 14 15 16 16 17 19 19 20 21 There are 16 terms in the ordered array. Position of median = (n+1)/2 = (16+1)/2 = 8.5 The median is between the 8th and 9th terms, 14.5. If the 21 is replaced by 100, the median is 14.5. If the 3 is replaced by -88, the median is 14.5.
Sanjay Rastogi, IIFT ,New Delhi Arithmetic Mean Commonly called ‘the mean’ is the average of a group of numbers Applicable for interval and ratio data Not applicable for nominal or ordinal data Affected by each value in the data set, including extreme values Computed by summing all values in the data set and dividing the sum by the number of values in the data set

### What students are saying

• 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.

Kiran Temple University Fox School of Business ‘17, Course Hero Intern

• 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.

Dana University of Pennsylvania ‘17, Course Hero Intern

• 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.
